Light the Torch to open for Killswitch Engage on 2020 tour

Killswitch Engage has announced that Light the Torch will serve as the opening act on its upcoming spring 2020 headline tour. As fans are well aware, Light the Torch features frontman 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,” KsE frontman Jesse Leach said. “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.”

“We are truly excited to be a part of the Atonement Tour with KsE and ABR,” Jones said. “This one has it all—old friends, new music, good times. Forget the world for a night and come hang out with three bands that want to make memories with you!”

In other Killswitch Engage news, the band just received a Grammy nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category for its single “Unleashed,” the lead track on its 2019 album, “Atonement.” This marks the third Grammy nomination in the band’s career.
