Killswitch Engage Announce North American Tour With August Burns Red

Having only wrapped up their UK tour last month, metalcore legends Killswitch Engage are already making big plans for 2020. The band have announced a full North American headlining tour to kick off this coming March, with August Burns Red opening up for them.

The tour starts in the Rust Belt -- assuring that fans will freeze their asses off attending -- then heads down the east coast, through the south, and winds up through America and into Canada. It's a massive trek, so fans have plenty of chances to catch KsE live.

READ THIS: How I wrote My Curse by Adam D of Killswitch Engage

This year marks the fifteenth anniversary of Killswitch Engage's groundbreaking album The End Of Heartache. But for guitarist Adam D, the band's new record Atonement is all that matters.

“We shouldn’t live in the past, y’know?” says Adam. “I feel like there’s been too much of that recently. Maybe more people should focus on writing more material, and not just trying to rehash stuff, y’know? There’s just too much of that!

“I’m happy that everyone agreed with me that it wasn’t a good idea,” he continued, “especially because we literally just finished our new record. So we have things to worry about.”
