Former Killswitch Engage Singer Howard Jones Fronts New Supergroup
Former Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones has formed a new band with Francesco Artusato (All Shall Perish) and John Sankey (Devolved, Fear Factory and Divine Heresy). The group was originally formed by Artusato and Sankey and their desire to create music outside of their extreme metal backgrounds and the two wrote over a dozen songs before recruiting Jones. "We were unsure if Howard would be interested," says Sankey. Jones was interested and joined late last year. "It turned from bare-bones musical ideas into something that surpassed any of our expectations" he said. "It went from something we thought was going to be a fun, heavy project into something very real." "It became a departure from what I'm known for," says Artusato. "I wasn't focusing on technical guitar parts (even though I still love that aspect of writing) but simply on writing what felt best for each individual song." "It's a different style of music for me," says Jones. "It's heavy as anything any of us are known for but I get to do some different things people won't expect. I've been singing almost all my life. Being around good songwriters and musicians in my former bands really helped mold me into who I am now." The band began the year recording with producer and former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader. The band plan to solidify their lineup for future touring and plan to record a full album with Mader with an eye towards release before the year is out.
