    The Weapon

    New hardcore/punk band The Weapon have released their ferocious debut 2-track EP via Bandcamp.

    The outfit is led by Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach, while guitarist Chris Drapeau, bassist Josh Mihlek and drummer Andy Mass round out the rest of the lineup.

    Speaking to Revolver about the band, Jesse confessed his love for being able to freely produce more raw material:

    "I've been wanting to do a hardcore project for years but just never had the right people or the right timing...I grew up in the hardcore scene from the age of 14, so it's my culture, it's in my blood. I love the raw power the energy and the messages hardcore music provides. That and it's just fun to do simple, fast, pissed-off music.

    We are not striving for perfection, just feeling. With Killswitch and Times, it's very polished and precise. It can be tiring and tedious. Don't get me wrong, I love it and I'm very fortunate to do both of those bands, but to me, the Weapon is for fun and for the love of hardcore!

    On top of that, I can go in a little more hard on the lyrics and I don't have to concern myself with melodies or singing a part near perfect. I am not a fan of unflawed "perfect" sounding vocals — clearly, if you've seen me live — so it's a breath of fresh air to just belt it out and be done."
