“After years of playing ‘Chop Suey!‘ over the PA system right before we took the stage at our shows, we decided to take a crack at the song ourselves. This is truly one of the most legendary rock/metal songs of all time and it was so much fun to cover. I’m especially proud of our singer Jake and our bassist Dustin. We haven’t done much clean singing in our music and this song showcases our vocalists in a whole new way.”

“Being stuck at home for the past six months has given us a lot of time to think and plan what we wanted to do next. It’s been such a strange year and I have never gone this long without playing music with my friends. When we realized that this November marks the 15-year anniversary of ‘Thrill Seeker‘, we wanted to do something special for our debut album.

We decided to get together and perform the entire thing on the internet. We are going all in on production — from lighting to video to audio. Our goal is to push the envelope on what people have come to expect from a livestream performance. Mark your calendars for November 14. In the meantime, we’ll be practicing…”

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””
