Howard Jones Forced To Leave KSE Tour, All That Remains Frontman To Step In

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE vocalist Howard Jones is leaving the band's current headlining tour with THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and DARK TRANQUILLITY due to unforeseen circumstances. ALL THAT REMAINS/ex-SHADOWS FALL vocalist Phil Labonte will be filling in for Jones for a few shows in the interim, until the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guys can determine what the plan will be for the remaining tour dates, which are currently scheduled to run through the end of March.

Damn that sucks. Although it should be interesting to see Phil on stage with KSE.

Hm... I wonder if that would make KsE more or less obnoxious?

I like Phil's vocals with ATR. He is kind of a bro on stage, but whatever.

After looking it up. It look like the band was having a lot of issue during the recording of the last album. I'm thinking either Howard got fed up and quit, or the band got fed up and fired him.

I bet he's just sick or something, they're too popular to get rid of him. He's the reason they got where they are now...but that still remains...WHERE IS JESSE LEACH WHEN WE NEED HIM?

He has a new band called The Empire Shall Fall. It's actually really good stuff!

It probably won't happen, but I don't want Phil to leave ATR. I really like what they have been doing lately.

You can make fun of KSE all you want, but they were one of the first bands that got me into Metal. Killswitch, Lamb Of God, Shadows Fall. Basically any band that was on the Freddie Vs Jason Sountrack.

I'm really hoping it's not the case, but if KES has to call it quits it truely will be the end of an great era in Metal.
