If you haven’t heard yet, we have some pretty amazing news for you! Killswitch Engage have none other than Light The Torch joining them on their Spring 2020 North American tour!
As well as Light The Torch, August Burns Red will also join them and serve as the main support act! We’re not screaming, you guys are.
2020 is set to be pure fuego, for Killswitch has also been nominated for a Grammy this year for their single ‘Unleashed’— from their incredible latest album ‘Atonement’. This is considered the band’s third Grammy nomination!
Die hard fans of Killswitch Engage will also be well aware that Light The Torch’s frontman is Howard Jones— who was a singer for KsE for ten years! Crazy, right?
“We are excited to bring out Light the Torch, first of all, because they are a killer band,” says KsE singer Jesse Leach. “Obviously, having Howard out with us allows us to make this a tour to remember. I’ve always respected Howard as a singer, but in recent years, he’s become a friend. So it means more to me now than it would have in the past. We are happy to see him back up on the good foot and singing his heart out again in top form. With both August Burns Red and Light the Torch, there will be no punches pulled. Just a killer lineup. Fans won’t want to miss this tour. You will want to come early and stay late. All hails.”
Speaking about joining Killswitch Engage on tour, Howard Jones says “We are truly excited to be a part of the Atonement Tour with KsE and ABR, this one has it all — old friends, new music, good times. Forget the world for a night and come hang out with three bands that want to make memories with you!”
August Burns Red singer, Jake Luhrs, also adds, “We can’t wait to rip through North America with Killswitch Engage and Light the Torch! This tour has been in the making for a long time and I can’t wait to hit the road and show everyone what we’ve been working on. If you’re a metal fan, you’re not going to want to miss this one.”
We agree wholeheartedly. This is going to be a tour you do not want to miss!
