Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have reunited with former singer Howard Jones for a new song.
The collaboration was revealed by current KILLSWITCH frontman Jesse Leach, who posted a photo of Instagram of him, Jones and guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz in the studio, along with the caption: “This dude was in the neighborhood, so I figured hey let’s get him to lay down some stuff for a thing…He did, and it is going to be EPIC!”
Leach didn’t provide any details on what the track will be used for, but he did offer a few hints by including the hashtags #kserecordingsessions, #Duet, #TheSignalFiresAlight, #LightTheTorch and #YesItHappenedYouKnewItWouldSomeday.
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE is currently working on a new album for a tentative late 2018 release.
The follow-up to 2016’s “Incarnate” will mark the band’s third full-length effort since the return of Leach, who rejoined the group in 2012.
Leach appeared on KILLSWITCH‘s self-titled debut and sophomore album, “Alive Or Just Breathing”, before exiting the band. Jones took over on vocals for “The End of Heartache”, “As Daylight Dies” and the 2009 self-titled set before being dismissed from the group six years ago.
Jones is currently the frontman of LIGHT THE TORCH, which recently released its debut album, “Revival”, after issuing two efforts under its previous name, DEVIL YOU KNOW.
