In a post to Instagram, Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach says that he needs “to get help” after recently informing fans that he and his wife Melissa have decided to go separate ways, after 16 years of marriage. Leach has relocated to upstate New York and had posted to his new account, with posts indicating he was hitting reset on his life in many ways. Leach let his followers know that he will be back, he would be seeking treatment so that he can avoid becoming “another statistic of suicide.“. Leach has long been an advocate of mental health care, awareness and suicide prevention and has been open about his past struggles with depression. No word yet on how this affects the newly completed KsE album, due out in 2019 from Metal Blade Records. What matters is Jesse and his health and happiness. We wish Jesse the peace, love and the best way forward for his life. You can read the post below. If you or anyone you know is suffering and thinks there is no way out, you are not alone. You matter and you are loved. For resources and help, please visit this link.
