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.”

Howard Jones (Light The Torch) added:

“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!”

August Burns Red Premiere New Song “Vengeance”

August Burns Red have premiered a new song titled “Vengeance.“ The band commented:

“Earlier this year, we set out to write a standalone single that was fast, heavy, and concise. ‘Vengeance‘ is that song. It’s ABR at our most raw. The song speaks about how much meaner the last 18 months seem to have made everyone. There is a lack of compassion and understanding for others, and we should be doing all we can to bring that back into our lives.”
