Killswitch Engage - Killswitch Engage Hunting For New Singer Online

Rockers Killswitch Engage have stepped up their hunt for a new frontman by appealing for talented singers to get in touch.
The band has parted ways with Howard Jones after nine years and they are eager to find a replacement as soon as possible.
In a statement, the group says, "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 management email address provided in the contact section of KillswitchEngage.com."
Jones has also opened up about his departure from the band, revealing he experienced health problems and didn't feel fully committed to the group's next album.
He says, "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 realise that my heart wasn't in it.
"I have so many good memories, and those are the ones that I will keep."
