August Burns Red + Light the Torch to rejoin as support
Gold-selling and three-time Grammy-nominated hard rock heavyweights Killswitch Engage have announced their rescheduled headline tour for Winter 2022.
KsE, recognized by Forbes as "one of modern metal's most cherished acts," will bring The Atonement Tour back on the road to clubs and theaters across the U.S. and into Canada. The trek kicks off on January 28 in Pittsburgh and runs through March 12 in Philadelphia.
All dates are below. Tickets are onsale here: killswitchengage.com
The Atonement Tour makes its return with the same powerful lineup, which includes Lancaster, Pennsylvania's August Burns Red as main support and Light the Torch as the opening act. As fans are more than well aware, LTT frontman Howard Jones served as KsE's singer from 2002 through 2012.
This tour package was originally planned for Spring 2020 but was ultimately postponed two dates into the original run due to the global shutdown that was a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will now include all of the rescheduled dates as well as several new locations across the U.S.
"The long wait is finally over," says KsE singer Jesse Leach. "We worked very hard to carefully piece this tour back together properly. After the tour was shut down two days in when it started in 2020, we are bringing it back! We are honored and stoked to have August Burns Red and Howard Jones and the boys in Light the Torch along to make this an 'all killer, no filler' line up."
Jones echoes the sentiment, saying, "FINALLY! We get to pick up where we left off on the Atonement tour with KsE and ABR! We couldn't be more excited to resume with the same lineup, and additional dates have been added so don't miss this noisy party. Now, stop reading this and get your tickets. GO! This will be a tour to remember and you do not want to miss it!"
