LIGHT THE TORCH, the band that features former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE singer Howard Jones, have canceled their previously announced tour dates over COVID-19 concerns.
LIGHT THE TORCH broke the unfortunate news in an announcement on their social media earlier today (Saturday, August 21), writing: “We are sorry to announce that we are pulling off of the September tour with MOTIONLESS IN WHITE and all of the festivals along the tour. We have concerns about the ability to keep ourselves and our crew healthy and the ramification we could incur if shows need to be cancelled in this current climate.
“We were really looking forward to playing for all of you again, supporting our new album, and sharing the stage with MOTIONLESS IN WHITE. Ultimately it was a very difficult decision, but one that we felt we had to make. We wish we had better news.
“At this point we just want to say thank you to all of our fans for your understanding. We couldn’t be a band without your continued support. Be careful and safe out there and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.”
LIGHT THE TORCH’s second studio album, ‘You Will Be The Death Of Me’, dropped back in June via Nuclear Blast.
