Killswitch Engage Invite Fans To Audition To Become Their New Singer
Killswitch Engage have invited their fans to audition to become their new lead singer. The metallers parted ways with frontman Howard Jones last week and have now offered fans the chance to submit vocal demos through their management. Posting on their official Facebook page Facebook.com/Killswitchengage, they wrote: "We've been getting a lot of inquiries about the singer position. If you are interested, please send an MP3 or a song link, a photo and a brief description of yourself to the email provided." Killswitch Engage toured in 2010 with Phil Labonte of All That Remains standing in for Jones, but he has already ruled himself out of becoming the band's fulltime frontman. The band's original vocalist Jesse Leach, who left after the release of their breakthrough album "Alive Or Just Breathing" and who also stood in for Jones in 2010, has also been linked with a permanent return to the band. Jones has also posted a statement about his departure, revealing that the process was entirely amicable and that his health has suffered from the rigours of being in the band. He wrote: "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." He went on to say that he could not get excited about the process of writing a new record and that it was the correct decision for him to leave the band. He wrote: "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". Thanks for the report to NME.com.
