As progress in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Killswitch Engage is trying its hand at hitting the road again.
The band was forced to postpone the spring 2020 leg of its “Atonement Tour” last year due to the impacts of the pandemic, but now the band has announced it will try things out again this winter. The announcement was made Tuesday through a news release.
Front man Jesse Leach was upbeat as he talked about getting the tour running again in a prepared statement.
“The long wait is finally over,” said 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 [former KsE frontman] and the boys in Light the Torch along to make this an ‘all killer, no filler’ lineup.”
Jones shared Leach’s excitement about the tour.
Jones echoes the sentiment, saying, “FINALLY! We get to pick up where we left off on the Atonement tour with KsE and ABR!,” he said. “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!”
According to the provided information, the re-scheduled tour is set to launch Jan. 28 in Pittsburgh, PA and to run through March 12, bringing the band back to the Steel City to close things out. The tour also features performances in cities nationwide, such as Raleigh, NC; Riverside, CA and Boise, ID.
The tour’s schedule is noted below. August Burns Red and Light The Torch (fronted by Jones) are scheduled to serve as support for the tour. Tickets are available here.
