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””

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”
