Fancy Singing For Killswitch Engage?
Killswitch Engage have revealed that they’re holding open auditions to find a new lead vocalist after Howard Jones dropped a shocker by leaving the band last week.
“We’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the singer position,” reveal the band on their website. “If you are interested, please send an MP3 or a song link, a photo and a brief description of yourself to the management email address provided in the contact section of KillswitchEngage.com.”
Howard has issued a statement of his own explaining why he decided to leave the fold after almost a decade in the band.
“I’ve had a pretty interesting couple of years, to say the least, battling with some personal issues,” says the singer. 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.”
He continued, “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.”
Jones thanked the rest of the band for “an amazing decade,” adding, “I have so many good memories, and those are the ones that I will keep.”
So, who’s up for a go at ‘End Of Heartache’? Anyone?
