Sion (Ex-Killswitch Engage, Etc.) Explain Why They Didn’t Perform At Blue Ridge Rock Festival

Sion, the project featuring Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage) and YouTuber Jared Dines, were supposed to play their first live show at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Alton, VA yesterday (September 10), but they didn’t end up making it. Now, Dines has since revealed that they dropped off the festival weeks ago “due to conflicting schedules.”

Dines said the following:

“We submitted a statement to them 3 weeks ago. I will post that statement here since apparently they did not update anyone..”

He then shared the statement he mentioned:

“Due to conflicting schedules, Sion will be unable to perform at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival. Howard and I both agree that due to lack of availability for both of us that now is not ideal to take SION to the stage. With conflicts affecting our ability to prep/rehearse we opted to wait until we can do it right.”

Dines also added:

“I’m really really sorry about this. I’m not sure why there was never an update. We submitted our statement 3 weeks ago saying we couldn’t make it happen. I was under the impression it was going to be handled.”
