Killswitch Engage, August Burns Red & Light The Torch Tour Postponed, Watch Howard Jones Join Killswitch Engage Onstage For Two Songs


The remaining dates of Killswitch Engage‘s spring tour with August Burns Red and Light The Torch have been postponed amid Coronavirus concerns. That run had just commenced on March 10th and was due to run through to April 12th. Killswitch Engage commented:


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,


The initial dates of the tour that did take place saw Killswitch Engage joined onstage by their ex-frontman Howard Jones, who currently handles the vocals for Light The Torch. He had joined the band for both their collaborative track “The Signal Fire” and a track from his era fronting the band, “The End Of Heartache“. Fan-filmed footage of that can be seen below:
