Jesse Leech demoing solo material for album

In a recent interview with Metal Underground Jesse Leach informed the website that he is currently demoing solo material but states he needs to become more disciplined if he is to finish it.

If I can get my discipline in order, I’ve got a bunch of songs I’ve been demoing, solo stuff. When you first walked in [the bus], I was watching The Clash, and I’m a huge Clash fan. I’d love to do something that sounds like a mixture of The Clash with some trip-hop, some dub, and some reggae music in it. Energetic music, but I’m a huge reggae/punk fan, so The Clash is a really good model for what I’d like to do. I lean more towards the reggae/trip-hop aspect with some punk undertones. That’s kind of my dream project, doing my solo record.

It’s been a couple years of demoing it, but I just don’t have the discipline to, when I get off tour, to sit down and do it on my own. We’ll see. I’ve got a couple producer friends who have shown interest. Maybe I can get that done soon.
