Killswitch Engage posted a message on their website that says “Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones is leaving the band’s current headlining tour with The Devil Wears Prada and Dark Tranquility due to unforeseen circumstances. All That Remains vocalist will be filling in for Jones for a few shows in the interim, until the KsE guys can determine what the plan will be for the remaining tour dates, which are currently scheduled to run through the end of March.”
After that the rumors started flying, first there was speculation that he had quit the band but as time went on it was more apparent that Jones is taking time out to deal with an injury or illness.
Phil Labonte who is stepping into Jones shoes for the meantime wrote this on Twitter, “Yep, I’m singing for KsE until HoJo gets better. Not sure how long it’ll be, but I’m here ’till they don’t need me anymore.”
