Killswitch Engage begin their tour January 28 in Pittsburgh, PA, and conclude March 12 in Philadelphia, PA. August Burns Red and Light The Torch are along for the ride as support acts. Light The Torch features former Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones who served as Killswitch Engage’s singer from 2002 through 2012.
Killswitch Engage Jesse Leach states:
“The long wait is finally over … We worked very hard to carefully piece this tour back together properly. After the tour was shut down two days in when it started in 2020, we are bringing it back! We are honored and stoked to have August Burns Red and Howard Jones and the boys in Light the Torch along to make this an ‘all killer, no filler’ line-up.”
Light The Torch frontman Howard Jones adds:
“FINALLY! We get to pick up where we left off on the Atonement tour with KsE and ABR! We couldn’t be more excited to resume with the same lineup, and additional dates have been added, so don’t miss this noisy party. Now, stop reading this and get your tickets. GO! This will be a tour to remember, and you do not want to miss it!”
This tour package was originally planned for spring 2020 but was ultimately postponed two dates into the original run due to the global shutdown that was a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will now include all of the rescheduled dates as well as several new locations across the U.S.
