Popular US metalcore band Killswitch Engage are currently working on a new studio album, with guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz recently discussing the progress.
The musician caught up with Alternative Press to observe the developments on the full-length – the first to feature Jesse Leach since returning to the band.
“We’ve done basics for 16 songs, and we’ve got some vocal ideas down for two of them. When we get back in September, we’ll put the finishing touches on the other 14. The two are just about completed,” Dutkiewicz said.
Additionally, Dutkiewicz noted the renewed benefits the group currently feels.
“I know for a fact that we’re all stoked to be back doing this. We’ve had about two years off since Howard had to cool down, so we’ve been waiting to get back out and now that we’re doing it, we’re just so thankful.
“I always want to make sure I give my gratitude to all the fans and everybody waiting around and supporting us. It’s great to see us coming back and people still caring and coming out,” he said.
