Killswitch Engage continue tour without vocalist Howard Jones

Sometime last week Howard Jones, Killswitch Engage’s lead vocalist unexpectedly left the band. The band states, ““It became overwhelmingly obvious to all of us around Howard that he is in no condition to be on tour right now and that he needed to get off the road and get himself better. It’s a personal matter and while we understand everyone’s curiosity and concern for Howard and the band, we appreciate everyone respecting Howard’s privacy at this time.””

During this time the band wasn’t sure if they should cancel the tour or not.
“We seriously considered cancelling the tour since we don’t want to give fans that paid good money anything less than KsE at full-strength. But after trying a few shows with Phil, and after feeling the love and support that we were getting from the crowd, it became increasingly apparent to us that the shows came across as fun and unique, and the fans seemed to be enjoying it.  We quickly realized that we had to keep going and that we couldn’t possibly stop.”

Luckily one of the bands close friends, Phil Labonte of All That Remains will be covering for Howard Jones. If you are a fan and are disapointed you will be able to receive a refund for tickets purchased however the band still would like you to check them out as this is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity to see Phil perform with the band.
