Howard was over in England when we were. He was doing press for his band @lightthetorchband. We invited him to hang with us during our two night stint at the 02 arena opening for Iron Maiden. Jesse asked him take the stage to sing “End Of Heartache.” We all had fun, catching up, telling stories and a lot of laughter. So we decided to do it all over again the following night! Yes we filmed it all and recorded it and it will see the light of day at some point soon. For all of us in the band we are proud to all be friends and share a mutual respect for one another. As Jesse stated on his Instagram “They had their issues Howard had his & they parted ways. I’ve seen those issues dissolve, be forgiven & friends reuniting behind the scenes. This level of respect & friendship is admirable & I’m honored to be a part of it. I wasn’t close to Howard during all of this & it wasn’t my business to talk about it. However now I consider Howard a friend. So I decided to shine light on the positive aspects of this history & relationship by extending a hand of solidarity & recognition. So I asked him to sing on a song with me for the new album (which he did) & now to join us on stage to sing a song with us. I’ve learned a great deal since my vocal surgery in May not just about proper technique but about the power of words, music & having a voice. After having a second chance at this as a career I decided to use this voice for what it was intended for, to bring people together. I also feel I have to recognize all of the hard work Howard put in for 9 years with KSE. I am a fan of his voice and now his friend. I want him to do well with his band “Light The Torch” and his career. THAT is what this is about, respect and solidarity, not division & comparison. This is our KSE family. Be sure to check out Howard’s band @lightthetorchband and their newest album “Revival“ out now! .

This has come around quick. This Wednesday August 8th at @o2academybham I’ll be hosting a Live Q&A with my soul brother @jesse_d_leach from @killswitchengage.
Jesse was a guest on Episode 005 of Life In The Stocks (which feels like a lifetime ago now as I’m putting out Episode 067 this week), and it’s still in the Top Five most listened to episodes of the podcast to date, so when I came up with the idea of doing An Evening With live ticketed events he was top of my guest wish list. Thankfully, he jumped at the opportunity to get into it in front of a crowd and now the moment has almost arrived.
This is going to be special night filled with in-depth discussions about music, love, life, travelling, mental health and so much more. Doors are at 7pm. Show starts 7:30pm. Tickets are £20 and available via ticketmaster.co.uk 🤘🏻
For those inquiring who the guy is on stage with us filming us, his name is Tom Bejgrowicz @manalivecreative. Tom has been a supporter and friend of the band since the beginning 18 years ago. He’s a photographer, graphic designer, teacher, music obsessed all around great dude. Most importantly he’s our friend so we don’t even notice sometimes when he is shooting us, which makes way for genuine and candid captures. Give him a follow on his page or simply watch his work in progress on our page. He will be with us through to London and is capturing behind the scenes, backstage and obviously onstage. If you see him say hello he’s a super nice guy and he may even take your photo for us to use at some point. He’s also the Photographer that put out the book “The Disarming Process” which documented the making of “Disarm The Descent” and the return Of Jesse @jesse_d_Leach to the band. Here are some photos Tom has taken and a few of him through the years. We’ll be using what he captures on this tour for future use as well, but we’ll be sharing select few as the tour rolls on. Thanks Tom, glad to have you aboard the Pirate Ship KSE 💀🤘🏼#ManAliveCreative#TomB#TomBejgrowicz#Kse#KillswitchEngage#KseFamily#Friends#Photographer#Videographer#RoadLife#TourLife#JoelStroetzel#JustinFoley#AdamD#JesseLeach#MikeDAntonio
