KILLSWITCH ENGAGE part ways with frontman
Howard Jones is no longer the singer for Killswitch Engage.
The band released a statement today saying, “To our family, friends and fans: We have decided to continue on without Howard Jones. We love Howard and are thankful for the nine years that we’ve had him in the band. Out of respect for everyone involved, we will not be discussing the specific reasons behind this decision. He has left big shoes to fill, so we certainly have our work cut out for us to find the next singer, something we plan on making priority #1 going forward.”
Admittedly, this felt like it was on the cards since some seedy business about Jones getting a pornstar pregnant came up a year or so ago but the timing now suggests the band hunkered down for album number six and Jones just wasn’t on the same wavelength. Rumours abound already that former frontman Jesse Leach is due to return.
