Killswitch Engage are gearing up to get back on the road, as the Massachusetts metal band has announced the a string of rescheduled dates for their North American headlining tour with August Burns Red and Light the Torch. The 2022 trek includes makeup dates for all of the 2020 shows, as well as new stops.

“The wait is finally over,” Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach said in a statement. “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’ lineup.”

Jones also commented, “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!”

Jones previously served as the lead vocalist of Killswitch Engage, so the night offers a double-dose of classic Killswitch fare. The tour was initially set for 2020 but shut down just two days into the run, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. View the full itinerary of tour dates below.
