Get ready to add another rocking tour to your “Must Go To” concert list.

On Tuesday (Nov. 5), Killswitch Engage announced plans to embark on a spring 2020 outing. Dubbed the “Atonement Tour,” the excursion will find the iconic metal group performing at venues across the continent throughout March and April 2020.

The month-long trek will include stops in Grand Rapids, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, San Antonio, Los Angeles, Toronto, Montreal, Portland, and more. The tour kicks off on March 10 at the Agora Theatre in Cleveland and concludes a few weeks later on April 12 at the House of Blues in Boston.

August Burns Red will join Killswitch Engage for the full trip. Additional supporting acts will reportedly be announced at a later date.

Tickets for the upcoming tour go on sale this Friday, Nov. 8, at 10 a.m. local time.

The forthcoming tour will be in support of Killswitch Engage’s recently released record, Atonement.

Released in August of this year, the album was warmly received by critics and fans alike. The record, their eighth studio effort, went on to peak at the number 13 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

During the making of the album, the group had to cancel a slew of tour dates as vocalist Jesse Leach underwent surgery on his vocal cords.

As for August Burns Red, things have been quick over at their camp. Their last studio effort was 2017’s Phantom Anthem, which earned them a Grammy nomination for the track “Invisible Enemy.”
