Interesting stuff. On the Unearth DVD I got, Trevor fills in for Howard on a show and does a pretty decent job. Except during "Numbered Days" the lyric is "Kingdom will rise...." and Trevor sings "Gandalf will rise" on accident lol.

Hopefully Howard's situation isnt anything serious

I would love to hear how Phil's voice works with Killswitch songs. That seems like it'd be pretty awesome.

That's a shame, because Howard is a powerhouse live, but Phil is good too.

I hope everything is cool with Howard. No family problems and no quitting the band.

Phil's singing voice is not that good live and trying to sing Howard's parts will make it even harder.

I think it's always shady when someone leaves a tour and they don't say why. Hope everything is all right. I remember one show where they had a different fan come on stage for ever song and they did something like 4 or 5 tunes. Pretty rad

For some reason I remember seeing that maybe Howard Jones messed up his back at one of the shows...I can't recall where that was though or if it's true, so take it with a grain of salt. According to this site, however, Phil Labonte says he will be filling in for Howard Jones "until he gets better," so that might lend credence to that...maybe?

Howard and Phil are both great, but I don't think killswitch would be the same without howard

Here's some videos of it if anyone is interested. Adam D from KsE explains a little bit about Howard Jones' departure. http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/bla...ontent=Twitter
