    Chicago-based non-profit, Hope for the Day, has partnered with Alternative Press to release their sixth video segment from a series titled, "Music Saved My Life," starring Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach. The singer discusses the emotional impact music had on his life and how it gave him an outlet to cope during the hard times in his life.

    "Punk rock and hardcore was really the music that first spoke to me, and made me want to have a voice and express myself," says Leach. "That music was definitely an outlet for my emotions, especially when you're that young and still learning how to cope."

    The singer and songwriter admits to struggling with anxiety, depression and losing friends to suicide. Each video project focuses on sharing personal stories from musicians and artists who have leaned on their creative outlets when dealing with difficult times, and present a story that any fan can relate to.
