Despite Killswitch Engage continuing to their tour with All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte in light of Howard's unexpected departure, the band was joined onstage this week by former frontman Jesse Leach during a performance at The Filmore New York at Irving Plaza.

Some footage was caught of the show by a photographer:

Photographer Will Hawkins comments on the video: "As for the focus & sound quality... Dudes... It was on a DSLR right against the stage with built-in mic. I'm not a videographer, but I wanted to snag some vid just to share with YOU.... so deal ! ;)"

Nice to see Jesse out there with his old band. He should tour with them until Howard returns.

Fvck that... I have become totally hooked on The Empire Shall Fall. Keep pursuing what you're doing Jesse. KSE has gone in a far different direction. That being said, it was awesome to see him out there playing the old classics.

I agree toke...when i was young Jesse and KSE were kind of a gateway band. That being said, i have always liked him better with them than Howard. Maybe i just wish Howard focused more on BHBS....??? because they were great! And since im from the pretentious state of MA...its cool to see Jesse with KSE again. My favorite bands of all time are dissection, watain and eyehategod, but alive or just breathing is a killer album...
