Oathbreaker To Return For 2020 ArcTanGent Festival

Oathbreaker will be returning for this year’s ArcTanGent Festival. This will be the group’s first show since going on hiatus two years ago.

The band commented:

“It’s been over 2 years since the last Oathbreaker show, the dust has settled and the last couple of months we’ve been discussing whether or not to play another show. ArcTanGent felt like the right place to do so. We’re incredibly excited to play these songs again. This will most likely be the only Oathbreaker show in 2020. Hope to see a lot of familiar faces.”
