KILLSWITCH ENGAGE: New DOWNLOAD Festival Interview Posted Online

June 16, 2010

The Lowdown's competition winner Adam conducted an interview with Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE at this year's Download festival, which was held June 11-13, 2010 at Donington Park, United Kingdom. Watch the chat below.

Vocalist Howard Jones recently returned to KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's touring lineup after sitting out most of the band's last North American headlining trek.

In February, it was announced that Jones had to unexpectedly leave the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE tour, leading to a flurry of rumors and questions about the status of the band. The group subsequently issued a statement addressing the matter, saying, "It became overwhelmingly obvious to all of us around Howard that he is in no condition to be on tour right now and that he needed to get off the road and get himself better. It's a personal matter and while we understand everyone's curiosity and concern for Howard and the band, we appreciate everyone respecting Howard's privacy at this time." Longtime friend, Phil Labonte of ALL THAT REMAINS, was able to fill in and help out the band for the remainder of the tour, which wrapped on March 21.
