Adam D confirmed it on facebook.

They don't mention anything about Howard. It seems like that guy completely vanished after he knocked up that porn star. I'm sure he's still in the band if there was no mention of a different vocalist.

I'm stoked for this. I was one of the 9 people that liked the last record, but I really hope they do something this better this time around.

KSE is actually one of my favorite bands because I was a diehard fan of them after Mayhem 2009.

But I thought their last record was just okay. I still want to hear where Howard has been.

I never listened the newest in full, only the singles and ones they played live.
Either way I hope they stray away from that sound. I want old Killwitch :hmm:

The last album was not as good due to the fact they had an outside producer. Let Adam D handle the producer chores this time!!!

I always wanted to find out what happened to Howard after that knocking-up-a-pornstar rumor came out a while ago.

Honestly, I would want nothing more than for them to get Jesse back in the band. Times of Grace is pretty much half of the AOJB lineup anyway, might as well just finish it off (with Foley on drums, of course). But that probably wouldn't happen just out of the fact that I doubt Jesse would want to sing the Howard material.

I'm really excited for the new album. I wouldn't care who would be singing on the album either way honestly. I know Jesse doesn't play stuff from Howard era just based off the few reunion shows he did with them a couple years ago but it would be awesome to hear AOJB in it's entiretiy. I'm hoping Howard comes back with a clear head and they have Adam D producing it. I don't know if I could deal with another album like the last one. Hopefully it moves a bit more in the direction of TEOH and ADD. I'll buy it first day either way.

Meh, I think KsE was heading in that direction anyways. I think producers are given too much blame sometimes when a record sounds different. Although maybe Terry Date wouldn't be a bad idea. Look what he did for Unearth.

Nothing to be ashamed of there. Other than their very mediocre 2009 album, KSE is fuckig great. I can't see this new album going the heavy route since Adam D's got that side project with Corpsegrinder now, and KSE is finally becoming super radio friendly and making real money. But new album = new tour, and I'm happy for any opportunity to mosh to Fixation on the Darkness. :rocker:

Yea I'd love to see KSE again.

And I see Howard still being lead singer since Jesse seems happy in TOG and REFUSES to play anything KSE related.

Yikes, not gonna be getting this album, I just don't like these guys. Every time I think of KSE, I remember seeing them in '04 opening for Slayer and listening to a crescendo of boos rise from the audience after every song, occasionally followed by a beer hurling through the air. Their 15 and 16 year old fans were also getting annihilated by 40 year old Slayer fans as soon as they began to "mosh" as well.... you gotta love stuff like that. Plus when I saw them at Ozzfest '05, Adam came out wearing the shortest pair of cut off jeans I've ever seen on anyone, male or female. To call them Daisy Dukes would be a major understatement. Why would you wear such a thing and expect to be taken seriously, especially while performing live? I gave these guys a chance, a few chances actually, but they just don't do it for me

Are you kidding me? That's fucking despicable. Another reason why Slayer fans are the biggest jerkoffs in the metal world, despite Slayer being one of the best bands in the metal world.

And as for Adam D's humor... well, I find it hilarious. Maybe you're just too stuck up, old, and fucking elitist?

True. Adam D likes to joke around and have fun. Even when I saw him dressed nice and fancy during TOG he was still running around the stage and yelling random things and making faces at the crowd. He was amazing energy and gets a great crowd responce. During Mayhem 2009 when I saw them they got a insane crowd reaction.

Anthrax doesn't seem to have a problem just playing their early stuff.

Honestly to the average kid who has heard of anything KSE, as long as they play Holy Diver, they won't care.

As for the new album, I'm all for it. It can't be as bad as the last album. and yeah it wasn't nearly as shitty as people make it out to be, but it did sound like a mainstream rock album with more distortion and 2 heavy songs.

Howard rejoined the band after that tour he dropped off of(they played Rock On The Range later that year)


and it wouldn't surprise me if they did that festival again

Howard has a baby momma now. He needs this album to be huge. Amiright? I think that KSE plateaud w/ AOJB and have declined every album since IMO. I just hope they bring good support and not Devil Wears Peasant or whoever was w/ them last time. I assume it will be a continuation on radio stuff like last album. I do enjoy Adam D however. Dude cracks me up.

Shut up you, you like The Chariot, who are one of the worst bands I've had to see live. It's like some record dude went to San Diego and found some bum looking white kids, gave them instruments and said " Make noise with this stuff, and you got yourself a record deal".........."Hey, wait, to make more annoying loud noises, take this megaphone too"

Maybe this a little but put them in front of any bands fans who are from around this era I have the feeling something similar would happen. Testament, Exodus, Overkill. I don't see KSE getting over w/ these fans either. I know KSE headlines over all of those bands but you get the point. The drink throwing is a dick move but I saw that from a GWAR show thrown @ JFAC. Drink throwing is never cool regardless of band.

Completely honest, The End Of Heartache is within my top 5 albums of all time. It was one of my first "metal" cds that I loved every track and listened to nonstop. Itunes has the album played like 3,500 times or so for me.
