Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach confirmed on stage on Sunday night in Brooklyn that the Massachusetts metalcore titans’ new album will be coming in April 2013 via Roadrunner.

The as-yet-untitled opus will be the first to feature Jesse since he returned earlier this year and his first Killswitch album since 2002′s modern classic,Alive Or Just Breathing.

“[The recording process] was great,” Leach told Loudwire. “I came off tour I was filled with energy, ready to go, we knocked out a bunch of stuff. I had joined the band, the record was there, we’re on tour so I really didn’t have time to write. I took the past two months not only recording but writing so I’m there with an idea, being in the other room writing and going to Adam saying, ‘Here’s my idea I just wrote, what do you think?’ So there’s real spontaneity some of the songs that we just finished up. I had maybe five or six solid ideas when I came off tour and the rest had to be developed as we were recording it. It was exciting but at the same time tough because for me I’m digging deep down into my emotions and my psyche trying to come up with stuff that is honest and emotive and relevant, hopefully for the listener. It’s tiring but well worth, anything that’s worth achieving you got to suffer a little bit for it. I think mentally and spiritually and a little bit physically we were suffering but all of that made for an amazing record that I’m really proud of.”
