Howe began his career as the singer for a Detroit band called Hellion (later renamed Snair after moving to Los Angeles) before joining the band Heretic, who were formed in 1986. Heretic released its sole full-length album, Breaking Point in 1988 before Howe departed to join Metal Church and Heretic disbanded.
From 1988 until 1995 Howe sang in Metal Church, replacing David Wayne. After Howe joined Metal Church the subject matter deepened. The band's lyrics tackled political and social issues of the day with the releases of Blessing in Disguise and The Human Factor. Howe recorded three albums with Metal Church before the group split up in 1995.
On April 30, 2015, Metal Church announced that Mike Howe had rejoined the band. Since then, he has appeared on two more albums with them – XI (2016) and Damned If You Do (2018) – as well as their 2017 live album Classic Live.
