Killswitch Engage Announce 2022 Tour With August Burns Red + Light the Torch
Over two years after the original tour dates were announced, Killswitch Engage have finally rescheduled their North American headlining tour with August Burns Red and Light the Torch for 2022.
The COVID pandemic shut down the original 2020 tour dates just two days into the tour. Howard Jones, who famously sang for Killswitch for a decade, even joined his former band onstage during the finale of both gigs, performing “The End of Heartache” and “The Signal Fire” alongside Jesse Leach.
"The long wait is finally over," says KsE singer Jesse Leach. "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' lineup."
Light the Torch’s 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!"
The new run of North American dates will begin Jan. 28 in Pittsburgh, Pa., circle the continent and end on March 12 in Philadelphia, Pa. Fans can grab tickets here.
