From their Facebook:
Not big into them any more but this sucks, he was an awesome singer.
Hmmm Jesse coming back? the Time of Grace album was pretty good.
Might be interesting having him back in and do a real KSE album again.
Really liked his stuff when I was first getting into music with heavy vocals, since he had such a robust singing voice. That said, his vocals just felt too "over the top" to me when I got older and they just totally dropped off my radar.
Still a Jesse Leach fan, though.
Awesome and talented vocalist indeed. I kind of got the vibe from their 2009 DVD he wasn't into the music business but I wish him and the rest of the band well.
And now I can continue wishing Jesse was still in the band.
Facebook metallers are going cuntmental for this at the mo. Not massively into KSE but still an amazing vocalist!
I love KSE, and Howard's vocals. Damn shame.
Weird, they're pretty popular so I dont see why he'd leave if it's easy bank
I actually liked KsE better with Howard. Well, I'm not a huge fan, but The End of Heartache was an amazing record and I love the vocals on it. I was a huuuge Blood has been Shed fan before Howard joined KsE, so fingers crossed he's getting back to put out an album with them!!!
I hope so! Not sure how Jesse's vox will sound on Howard's songs though...
I definitely prefer KSE with Howard... he just has such a great voice, it's rare to hear someone with that much soul and power now. I remember I was listening to them ages ago and my mum said he sounded like Tom Jones
It's a shame he's gone, but I doubt I'll notice the difference because I don't really listen to them any more.
Love KSE and loved both Jesse and Howard in the band. That being said, I wouldn't mind seeing Jesse come back if the new songs are as good as the Times of Grace album was!
I always liked Jesse more. His voice is amazing, and nothing really came close to Alive or Just Breathing.
I started getting used to Howard's voice, but his screams were always poor in my opinion. They sounded forced and dry.
Also, everything started to sound the same after Alive or Just Breathing.
I'm glad Howard Jones left Killswitch Engage because now he can get back to singing his hits like "Things Can Only Get Better", "What is Love" and "No One is to Blame"...
Long as he still makes music i'll be happy. I wonder if he will be on the new record at all, he may have recorded some material for it. One can hope.
He looks just like my high school's Librarian/volleyball coach was freaking scary!
This would be such big news like six years ago.
Looks like his career is no longer alive, and just breathing.
Regarding the thread title, it doesn't sound like he LEFT KSE. It sounds like they kicked him out.
I'm on the same page as Randy with this one.
I figured this was going to happen after Howard went on break while Phil Labonte covered for him a couple years ago. Actually just saw on Phil's twitter earlier "No, I am not joining kse".
I wouldn't mind having Jesse back, especially if he's writing/singing like he did on the Times Of Grace disc!
I see what you did there.
