A Roadrunner Records spokesperson has told BLABBERMOUTH.NET that vocalist Howard Jones will return to KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's touring lineup for the above-mentioned shows after sitting out most of the band's recent 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.
