ALL THAT REMAINS/ex-SHADOWS FALL vocalist Phil Labonte has commented on his new gig as the fill-in frontman for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE.
As previously reported, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE vocalist Howard Jones is leaving the band's current headlining tour with THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and DARK TRANQUILLITY due to "unforeseen circumstances." Labonte will be stepping in for Jones for a few shows in the interim, until the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guys can determine what the plan will be for the remaining tour dates, which are currently scheduled to run through the end of March.
Writing on his Twitter profile, Labonte said, "Yep, I'm singing for [KILLSWITCH ENGAGE] until [Howard Jones] gets better. Not sure how long it'll be, but I'm here 'till they don't need me anymore."
