KILLSWITCH ENGAGE: HOWARD JONES IS OFFICIALLY OUT, BUT YOU’LL NEVER BELIEVE WHO’S IN

890

It was just yesterday that I couldn’t get Jesse Leach to comment on the Killswitch Engage singer situation. And now, after weeks and weeks of speculation, KSE have just released a statement, officially announcing Howard Jones’ departure from the band “due to personal reasons.” No further details are given.

That’s a bummer, but given all the recent rumors of Jones’ permanent departure, it’s not exactly shocking news. What is shocking is that the band has chosen not to bring original front man Jesse Leach back into the fold, or even Phil LaBonte, who covered for Jones on KSE’s most recent tour. So guess who got the gig instead?

FORMER DIVINE HERESY/SNOT VOCALIST TOMMY VEXT.

Yes… we’re as surprised as you are.

Read the complete statement from Tommy and KSE after the jump…

APRIL FOOL’S MOTHERFUCKERS!!!

If any you suckers thought this was real news, our sincerest apologies for the heart attack we may have just caused.

Otherwise, enjoy the rest of your day!
