Chicago, Illinois heavy metal band Hessler, would like to welcome their new singer, Jessikill. Following former vocalist Lariyah Daniels departure, she was the perfect fit for the music and personality of the band.

Reid. The band began rehearsals in late January 2014 and entered the studio on February 1st. They recorded three songs for an upcoming Maxi-single to be released in late March, which will be followed by the March Metal Madness Midwest / East Coast U.S. tour. The bands new music video for the single “Never Lost My Way”, was released on February 21, 2014 and is the first recording with Jessikill.
