Light The Torch Premiere “Let Me Fall Apart” Music Video

Light The Torch have premiered a new video for their new song “Let Me Fall Apart.” This track is from the band’s new album “You Will Be The Death Of Me,” which will be released on June 25.

Frontman Howard Jones commented:

“I loved this song as soon as I heard it. The music stuck in my head, so I knew I had to work on it right from the beginning of writing the new album. [Guitarist] Francesco [Artusato] wrote a huge chorus so I did my best to match that energy. We are thrilled for this to finally see the light of day.”

Artusato added:

“The initial idea for this song was to combine an ‘old school’ type of guitar riff and vibe — because I love to hear Howard sing over that style — with a more ‘contemporary’ type of arrangement and chorus. I remember writing and arranging the chorus, and feeling that it had the potential to become great knowing what Howard could do with it. And of course he delivered once again. This was one of the first songs that we worked on during pre-production and it felt really good right away. It was definitely one of the songs that helped shape the sound for the rest of the record.”

This news comes after the band recently announced that they will be playing a livestream show on June 25.

Light The Torch To Release New Album “You Will Be The Death Of Me” In June, Premiere “Wilting In The Light” Music Video

Light The Torch have announce that their new album “You Will Be The Death Of Me” will be released on June 25. A video for the effort’s first single, “Wilting In The Light,” can be found below:

“You Will Be The Death Of Me” Track Listing:

01. “More Than Dreaming”
02. “Let Me Fall Apart”
03. “End Of The World”
04. “Wilting In The Light”
05. “Death Of Me”
06. “Living With A Ghost”

08. “Something Deep Inside”
09. “I Hate Myself”
10. “Denying The Sin”
11. “Come Back To The Quicksand”
12. “Sign Your Name”

Frontman Howard Jones said the following about the record:

“‘You Will Be The Death Of Me’ has been a journey — even without the pandemic. This album has been emotional and rewarding in every way, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally release it. Maybe there was a bit of desperation writing and recording these songs.”

“Going through personal turmoil and watching [guitarist] Francesco [Artusato] deal with injuries, we knew this could change things drastically for us. The album was a welcome distraction, and we dumped every emotion we had into ‘You Will Be The Death Of Me’. To watch Fran heal and become an even more complete artist in front of my eyes has been amazing to watch. Everything we went through individually and together with this album drew Fran, Ryan, and I together. I couldn’t be more proud of this album knowing I made it with my family.”

Artusato continued:

“This record is special to me in a different way. From writing the music during one of the toughest times of my life while dealing with a bad injury due to a car accident to being obsessively involved with every aspect of its production, recording, and creating the artwork. It’s hard to describe how I feel, and to finally see this record getting ready to be released.”

“We are all very satisfied with how this record showcases the evolution of our band and our evolution as individuals. Without our brotherhood, this music could not have happened. Music is what kept us strong together during our toughest times. There’s nothing like art that expresses pure and deep emotions, and that’s what I feel when I listen to Howard’s performance on this record.”

Bassist Ryan Wombacher added:

“I think this album shows the growth the band has experienced after years on the road together, and a friendship that has continued to thrive doing what we love together.”

Notably, the group recorded the album at Sparrow Sound in Glendale, California with Whitechapel’s Alex Rudinger on drums. Artusato said the following about that:

“He’s incredible. He was exactly what we needed.”

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

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.

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”
