Killswitch vocalist rumours continue rolling

When Howard Jones departed Killswitch Engage last week the internet lighted rapidly up with discussion, mostly rumours of course, about who will take Jones’ place. Phil Labonte has flat out said it is not him and Tommy Vext has expressed his interest. Of course, all eyes are on Jesse Leach to see what he has to say. The former Killswitch vocalist, who sang on the band’s breakthrough record Alive or Just Breathing, has been mostly mute about the issue except for cryptic Facebook updates here and there. Now the latest came earlier this evening with this:
 “stop trying to read Inbetween the lines of my posts. If I have something to say, I WILL say it. For the moment I have no comments on KSE.”

This really only adds fuel to the rumour’s fire. If Jesse is not to be the new vocalist, surely he would just flat out say it like Phil Labonte, on the flip side it’s been nine years since he was in Killswitch and perhaps he understands that it is the band, and only the band, that can make any kind of announcement. So, what do you think? Is Jesse Leach returning to Killswitch Engage?

EDIT
Killswitch Engage have announced this evening that they are holding open auditions for the vocalist position. Here are the details: 
“We’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the KsE singer position. If you are interested, please send an MP3 or a song link, a photo and a brief description of yourself to the management email address provided in the contact section of killswitchengage.com. thanks KsE”
Does this rule out Jesse completely?
