Killswitch Engage reunite with Howard Jones

2018-04-13 by DDDeftoneDDD | 47 Comments
Killswitch Engage have reunited with their former singer Howard Jones for a new track.

Current Killswitch vocalist Jesse Leach posted an Instagram photo of himself with Jones and guitarist Adam D.

Leach didn't specify what the track is for, though he did include the hashtag #kserecordingsessions, as well as other intriguing hashtags including #Duet, #TheSignalFiresAlight and #LightTheTorch.

The Massachusetts metalcore band is currently working on the follow up to 2016's Incarnate.

Jones replaced Jesse Leach as Killswitch Engage singer in 2000, appearing on the albums End Of Heartbreak, As Daylight Dies and Killswitch Engagei. Leach returned in 2012.

I'm glad Leach is back but Howard created some of their most iconic songs and records, it'd be great if they found a way to have both guys in the band.

Still waiting for Times Of Grace #2

I saw this post yesterday, it looks like Jesse and Howard have become good friends, which is great to hear. Jesse talks a lot about how they both struggle with mental health and depression, and the song Howard will be featured on will most likely be about that. I'm excited to hear it, I will always have a soft spot for this band.

Also, Howard didn't replace Jesse until at least 2002 when Alive or Just Breathing was released.

Always nice to see situations like this, where there's no bad blood between the former members. Will always have a soft spot for this band.

Hopefully it's a lot more than the typical feature we usually get in this genre. I wanna hear these two play off each other and do some harmonizing. The video of them performing My Last Serenade together is still one of my favorite things related to this band.

Hopefully we get a full song with Howard and not the standard 10 second feature on other songs.

They should do a Haste The Day thing and have both vocalists work the entire album.

These guys were a great middle school jam.
Nowadays I only spin The End of Heartache and As Daylight Dies from time to time. Need to revisit the rest.

This guy was actually the main thing that got me into harder music with screaming. Even now that killstreak is like, child's play to me, I still love his voice. He stands out.

Nothing they did after AOJB was very good so meh. Howard has a good singing voice but never matched the fire Jesse brought on the first two records.

I'm not gonna lie, I'm not the biggest fan of KSE but reading about stuff like this makes me feel good.
Most of the time you read or hear about beef and falling outs between band members/artists but it's refreshing to see musicians getting along, paying respect to one another and just having fun.
I'm gonna go check out there stuff with a more open mind. Both Howard's and Jesse's vocals.
