Howard Jones is an American metalcore vocalist, best known as the former vocalist of the bands Killswitch Engage and Blood Has Been Shed, and as the current vocalist of Devil You Know. He left Killswitch Engage in early 2012 to allow himself to manage his type 2 diabetes which was worsened by a hectic touring lifestyle. In 2013 Howard stated that his diabetes put him in a coma for 3 days.
Howard has been working with Francesco Artusato (All Shall Perish) and John Sankey (Devolved, Fear Factory and Divine Heresy) in a new band, Devil You Know.
