The hardest working band in metal, Killswitch Engage have made a very interesting announcement for longtime fans. They have announced their spring 2020 headlining tour will now feature an opening slot performance from former vocalist Howard Jones' current project, Light The TorchAugust Burns Red were previously announced as direct support.

"We are excited to bring out Light the Torch, first of all, because they are a killer band," says singer Jesse Leach. "Obviously, having Howard out with us allows us to make this a tour to remember. I've always respected Howard as a singer, but in recent years, he's become a friend. So it means more to me now than it would have in the past. We are happy to see him back up on the good foot and singing his heart out again in top form. With both August Burns Red and Light the Torch, there will be no punches pulled. Just a killer lineup. Fans won't want to miss this tour. You will want to come early and stay late. All hails."

I think it's pretty safe to say we will see Howard come up on stage to perform the new song he sang on, "The Signal Fire" and if history is any indication, Jones will also be singing "The End of Heartache," which he still delivers like no other.
