Killswitch Engage and August Burns Red to embark on 2020 tour

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.”

Watch August Burns Red’s ‘live vibes’ in ‘Majoring in the Minors’

August Burns Red might be in the middle of their summer/fall North American tour, but that’s not stopping the group from releasing a brand new music video. On Wednesday (Sept. 14), the Pennsylvania-founded band released the music video for their latest single, “Majoring in the Minors.” The four-minute-and-15-second clip features the band performing live, showing the viewer what it’s like to be at a ABR show.

The music video made its exclusive debut over at Loudwire. The publication had a quick chat with guitarist JB Brubaker who explained how the clip came together. “The live video for ‘Majoring in the Minors’ was shot over our six-week North American spring tour with Between the Buried and Me. MITM is one of our favorite songs to play off of Found in Far Away Places and our dude, Ray Duker, did a great job of capturing the live vibes of the song.” Check out those “live vibes” below.

“Majoring in the Minors” is featured on the band’s 2015 album, Found in Far Away Places. The album, which was released through Fearless Records, earned the group a Grammy nomination in the “Best Metal Performance” category. In support of the release of their seventh studio album, August Burns Red is wrapping up their “Legends of the Fall” tour with Erra, Silent Planet, and Make Them Suffer. Tonight, the group is set to perform at Higher Ground in South Burlington, VT. The complete list of upcoming dates can be found here.
