Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach has just released the debut EP from his hardcore punk side project The Weapon. It is titled At What Cost/Shotgun Anarchy for the two tracks it contains and is influenced by bands such as Minor Threat, Discharge, and Black Flag.

The EP is over in less than five blazing minutes and it's easy to tell the record is for pure fun. Speaking about the project when he first announced it last year Leach said:

"This is a side project and it is being done for the pure enjoyment of playing. It is also a necessary outlet for a singing/yelling style and lyrics I can't fit into any other band or project I've ever done. My 15 year old self is quite proud of me!"

You can stream the EP via The Weapon's bandcamp or hear it below!
