Killswitch Engage, August Burns Red, & Light The Torch Offer Update On Postponed Tour

As previously reported, Killswitch Engage, August Burns Red, and Light The Torch were forced to postpone their spring tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, Killswitch Engage have offered an update on the trek saying that they are hoping to reschedule the dates for November/December.

Killswitch Engage said the following:

“Folks,

We have an update on the North America Atonement tour. We’re currently targeting November & December for all of the rescheduled dates with the hopes that shows can happen in that time period. Both August Burns Red and Light The Torch would be available during this time as well, so it would be the same lineup.

That said, we want to be clear that nothing is set in stone yet. Once we are sure about the time period and we have all of the shows confirmed, we will be sure to make another announcement.

Your tickets will be honored for the postponed shows. For those who need a refund, they are now available at the point of purchase and will continue to be available through June 10. Also, when we eventually announce the rescheduled dates, you will be able to get a refund then as well.

Thanks so much for your continued patience and support. We can’t wait to see you all again.

Until then, please stay safe and take good care of yourselves.

Love,

KsE””

August Burns Red Cancel European Tour

August Burns Red have cancelled their June European tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band are hoping to return next year.

August Burns Red & Silverstein’s Shane Told Share Quarantine Cover Of NOFX’s “Linoleum”

August Burns Red and Silverstein‘s Shane Told have shared a quarantine cover of NOFX‘s “Linoleum.“ You can check that out below:

August Burns Red’s JB Brubaker commented:

“ABR covered ‘Linoleum‘ by NOFX on a 7″ we did in 2009. We busted it out on tour periodically over the years. This past summer, while touring with Silverstein, we played it semi-regularly with Shane Told handling the vocals. While we were all stuck at home in isolation, we thought it would be fun to put together a quarantine version of ‘Linoleum‘ that featured Shane.

We each recorded our own parts at home and our sound engineer Chris Pollock mixed the audio together. Then, we had our touring photographer, Ray Duker, edit all the videos together. This was a fun project for us to put together, and we hope you enjoy it.”

August Burns Red Premiere “Bones” Music Video

August Burns Red have premiered a new video for their song “Bones.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Guardians.”

Brent Rambler commented:

“The video for ‘Bones‘ is possibly the coolest music video we’ve ever done. It takes the song title quite literally, and creates an awesome and visually stunning video. It was a weird video for us to shoot, because for the vast majority of it we had to stand perfectly still, so all of the x-ray and other effects could line up properly.

That’s definitely a departure from a usual music video where you are supposed to bang your head as hard as possible all day long. We’ve been at this for a while so our old ‘Bones‘ (wink) were happy for the change of pace.”

August Burns Red Premiere New Song “Paramount”

August Burns Red have premiered a new song titled “Paramount.” This track is from the band’s new album “Guardians,” which will be released on April 3. Guitarist JB Brubaker commented:

“‘Paramount‘ is one of my favorite songs from ‘Guardians‘. It has that classic ABR sound with a bunch of tempo changes and different time signatures. But there’s a recurring melody that glues the whole song together. I think this is a song that longtime fans of the band are going to love.”

Killswitch Engage Postpone Spring Tour With August Burns Red & Light The Torch

Killswitch Engage have postponed their North American tour with August Burns Red and Light The Torch due to the coronavirus pandemic. The shows will be rescheduled at a later date.

Killswitch Engage commented:

“Folks,

We have an unfortunate announcement to make, though we suspect most of you won’t be surprised. The rest of the dates on our current Atonement US headline tour with August Burns Red and Light The Torch have now officially been postponed. With all the bans being imposed on gatherings and all the health concerns involved, there was simply no way around it.

There’s nothing we enjoy more than playing for our fans, and if the first two shows of this tour were any indication, this was going to be one of the most fun tours we’ve ever had.

That said, these shows are not canceled, they are postponed. We definitely plan on coming back soon to play for all of you. For now, please hold onto your tickets. As soon as we have all of the rescheduled dates we will let you all know.

As always, thanks so much for your continued support. We couldn’t do this without you. We are grateful.

Please take care of yourselves.

With much love,

KsE”
