Killswitch Engage Hail Interpreter’s Signing Ability At Festival

-

Last weekend’s Welcome To Rockville Festival was special in many ways but one highlight was the brilliant job that sign language interpreters do out there. There have been a couple of stand-out signers over the years, Palaye Royale rocked out hardcore with an interpreter, and Lamb Of God‘s interpreter also caught everyone’s eye.

Well, we’ve got a new one to report, an interpreter that was signing at a recent Killswitch Engage set is now joining the badass few with her own brand of sign language skills with her interpretation of “Strength of the Mind.”

She pretty much stole the spotlight during the band’s set at Welcome To Rockville over the weekend. So much so that Killswitch vocalist Jesse Leach took notice, and took to Instagram to thank the interpreter for her incredible work.

Jesse wrote: “This moves me, seeing my lyrics especially these particular lyrics signed…. I am honored and at the moment overwhelmed. I hope this message reaches as many people as it can. Those who suffer from a mental illness, those who know all to well the extremes of the mind, the helplessness and the empowerment that can accompany all of it. It’s chaos, it’s beautiful it’s gut wrenching. AGAIN honored to see this! SHE IS KILLING IT!!! Thank you to this woman for helping spread the message of the music.”
