Howard Jones is the “Devil You Know”

During his decade-long run as frontman of Killswitch Engage, Howard Jones took the band to a new level. With the smash 2004 album The End of Heartache (which featured “Rose of Sharyn”), 2006’s As Daylight Dies (featuring the hit “My Curse”) and the unexpected radio hit of its cover version of Dio’s “Holy Diver,” the band was credited with spearheading the rise of metalcore and had become a household name.

Politically incorrect with Phil Labonte

Since the release of The Fall of Ideals (review) in July 2006, All That Remains has established itself as a force in the metal world. The band has supported the album relentlessly on the road with a touring schedule that has included Ozzfest 2006, support slots for bands such as Bullet for My Valentine and As I Lay Dying, and two headlining jaunts across the United States. caught up with frontman Phil Labonte at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., on the second-to-last night of a tour with Chimaira, Black Tide and Light This City. In a free-wheeling discussion, Phil touched on politics, touring, the music industry, the follow-up to his band’s breakthrough record and more. (more…)
