Killswitch Engage to audition new singers?

Monday, January 9, 2012 12:33 PM PT


Maybe they're just doing due diligence here and have actually already selected a replacement for departed singer Howard Jones, but Killswitch Engage now claims to be accepting submissions from potential replacements. Here's the official word:

"We've been getting a lot of inquiries about the KsE singer position. If you are interested, please send an MP3 or a song link, a photo and a brief description of yourself to the management email address provided in the contact section."

Get Jesse Leach back...End of story. The Times of Grace album is what the follow-up to The End of Heartache should have sounded like anyway.

Must be partial to black blazers and $300 dress shoes.

1/9/2012 1:04:48 PM
lol i really don't get why people are thinking Myke Terry would be suitable for this other than that he's the same color as Howard. that's really the only thing they have in common.

JUST GET JESSE WHAT THE fck ARE YOU THINKING DOING ANYTHING ELSE! JESSE JESSE JESSE!

Tommy Vext. I'll bet this whole board Cory Brandan's money that's who KsE picks...

anonymous
1/9/2012 1:22:41 PM
I second that Tommy Vext comment.

anonymous
1/9/2012 1:29:01 PM
Tommy Vext would be pretty dope, but what if was ex Textures vocalist Eric Kalsbeek o_0

anonymous
1/9/2012 1:59:51 PM
Adam Jackson from 12 Tribes, logical choice. Very similar voice.

anonymous
1/9/2012 2:10:48 PM
Textures dude would b wicked guy has incredible range

anonymous
1/9/2012 2:19:33 PM
Jesse Leache. Done.

anonymous
1/9/2012 2:30:33 PM
Be dope if the black veil brides vocalist would come on over

anonymous
1/9/2012 2:33:36 PM
#1. Stop making music.

1/9/2012 2:34:10 PM
Forgot about dude from 12 Tribes. He would work too though I think Myke Terry is still the best choice. Tommy Vext is talented but has more baggage than, well, Howard! That and he likes to punch other band mates!

anonymous
1/9/2012 2:34:18 PM
What about Darius Rucker... or why not just give Nate Johnson a shot?

anonymous
1/9/2012 3:20:35 PM
I hope whoever they choose can't sing and they revert to sounding like Aftershock.

anonymous
1/9/2012 3:21:58 PM
Carley Coma from Candiria/Hope Kills Fear anyone? Dude found God after the van accident, so he'd be perfect for crooning words like absolution, resolution, invocation, and inhibition...

anonymous
1/9/2012 3:42:17 PM
Carley Coma is one of the best vocalists ever...I'd second that. *blasting 300 percent density*

anonymous
1/9/2012 3:45:00 PM
How about Elmo and the Cookie Monster for a total kickass dual vocalist attack? The Cookie Monster could handle the dirty lows, and Elmo could handle the operatic highs. Plus they'd fit in well with Adam D's on-stage craziness

the reason why jesse was originally kicked out wass because he couldn't maintain his voice touring, screaming and singing is not an easy task for 30 + shows. adam from killswitch told me this....true story :D

1/9/2012 4:06:38 PM
true story :D

anonymous
1/9/2012 5:10:16 PM
any singer is fine with me, as long as they engage their killswitch

anonymous
1/9/2012 5:18:14 PM
all skin color jokes aside, what about Tony Vex?

anonymous
1/9/2012 6:10:29 PM
I think Myke Terry is their best bet because the last album he did with Bury Your Dead was melodic metalcore like KsE. He has good harsh/clean vocals and experience so I think he'd be a good fit. Tommy Vext would be second in line, but I heard the guy has some problems off the stage lol

anonymous
1/9/2012 6:20:07 PM
Raphael Saadiq.

1/9/2012 6:23:13 PM
nate dogg

anonymous
1/9/2012 6:38:35 PM
I vote for Mike Ski.

1/9/2012 7:12:46 PM
I guarantee it will not be myke terry. I vote chad ochocinco.

1/9/2012 7:12:54 PM
I hear Steven Tyler needs a band.

anonymous
1/9/2012 7:18:15 PM
I sent a c-ck pick with my mp3

anonymous
1/9/2012 7:21:51 PM
Lol @ rappers as potential replacements. Here's a few (rappers that can sing and can yell): Drake, Ice-T, Machine Gun Kelly, Necro, DMX, Esham,...and *i keep my fingers crossed that this would actually happen* Bushwick Bill

anonymous
1/9/2012 7:31:44 PM
Hey guys, it's open auditions! You don't have to be well known in the metal or HxC scene. Just send your MP3 to alliefosterbabydaddy@hotma il.com and Adam D will go over each submission with excruciating detail. Good luck!

anonymous

at this point shouldn't they just call it a career?
