Killswitch Engage announces Light The Torch as opening act for headline Spring 2020 tour; August Burns Red serves as main support

KSE TOUR 2020

 

Gold-selling hard rock heavyweights Killswitch Engage have announced that Light the Torch will serve as the opening act on their upcoming Spring 2020 headline tour. As fans are more than well aware, Light the Torch features front-man Howard Jones, who served as KsE’s singer from 2002 through 2012.

“We are excited to bring out Light the Torch, first of all, because they are a killer band,” says Jesse Leach. “Obviously, having Howard out with us allows us to make this a tour to remember. I’ve always respected Howard as a singer, but in recent years, he’s become a friend. So it means more to me now than it would have in the past. We are happy to see him back up on the good foot and singing his heart out again in top form. With both August Burns Red and Light the Torch, there will be no punches pulled. Just a killer lineup. Fans won’t want to miss this tour. You will want to come early and stay late. All hails.”

Killswitch Engage, recently recognized by Forbes as “one of modern metal’s most cherished acts,” will return to the road to headline clubs and theaters across the U.S. and Canada. The trek kicks off on March 10 in Cleveland and runs through April 12 in Boston. Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s own August Burns Red will serve as main support for all of the dates.
