As the tours continue to be postponed or cancelled in full based on the growing concerns about the Coronavirus Pandemic (Covid-19), we continue to serve up the news and statements from bands regarding their in progress or forthcoming tours. This recent statement comes from Killswitch Engage care of their Facebook Page.
The Band Statement:
We have an unfortunate announcement to make, though we suspect most of you won’t be surprised. The rest of the dates on our current Atonement US headline tour with August Burns Red and Light The Torch have now officially been postponed. With all the bans being imposed on gatherings and all the health concerns involved, there was simply no way around it.
There’s nothing we enjoy more than playing for our fans, and if the first two shows of this tour were any indication, this was going to be one of the most fun tours we’ve ever had.
That said, these shows are not canceled, they are postponed. We definitely plan on coming back soon to play for all of you. For now, please hold onto your tickets. As soon as we have all of the rescheduled dates we will let you all know. As always, thanks so much for your continued support. We couldn’t do this without you. We are grateful.
Please take care of yourselves. With much love,
