Listen to Killswitch Engage on iHeartRadio

Former Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones is back with a new band. 

Rumors that the heavy metal singer had returned to action have been circulating for a while now in the wake of his departure from Killswitch at the beginning of 2012.  And now, he's officially made his debut with Devil You Know. 

The new trio also features All Shall Perish guitarist Francesco Artusato and Devolved drummer John Sankey. 

Artusato and Sankey reached out to Jones at the end of last year.  Jones says the collaboration quickly went from something they thought would be a fun project into "something very real." 

They're set to release their first album together in early 2014.  But curious fans can listen to a demo of one of Devil You Know's new songs, "Shut It Down," on the band's Facebook page.
