Howard Jones Explains Killswitch Engage Departure
Just a few days ago it was announced - to the dismay of many fans - that Killswitch Engage's longtime vocalist Howard Jones would no longer be a member of the band. Howard, who was a member of Killswitch Engage for nine years, personally addressed his departure and revealed some of the reasons behind it. "Well, I guess I will she'd a little light without going too deep," Howard posted on Killswitch Engage's official website, www.killswitchengage.com. "As some of you may know, I've had a pretty interesting couple of years to say the least battling with some personal issues. One of the low points being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes that went unchecked for years. The rest of the band stuck with me through it, and to be honest they are the ones that kept me going. The whole experience definitely put a scare in me." "Recently we've all been in writing mode but somehow I couldn't get excited about the new album and all the touring that would go with it. The guys saw it before I did. In hindsight I now realize that my heart wasn't in it. I have had an amazing decade with KSE. I love Justin, MikeD, Joel and Adam for hanging in there and standing by me no matter how bad it was. I have so many good memories, and those are the ones that I will keep." "Will I be involved in music again? Sure, I have been in bands for a little over half my life, can't stop now. Until then, get the new KsE album, it's going to be good. Thanks everyone for letting me try to entertain you, and I wish myself well in my future endeavors. Gone fishin' Howard." The group suggests that there will be a record in the near future despite currently lacking a vocalist. Killswitch Engage is also scheduled to play the New England Metal And Hardcore Festival this year on April 22nd.
