Our next batch of tours come from Killswitch Engage, Deafheaven and Magnum due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Killswitch Engage were forced to postpone their US headline tour with August Burns Red and Light the Torch.
“Folks, 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,
Deafheaven’s 10th anniversary tour with Inter Arma, Greet Death, and All Your Sisters has been postponed:
“Due to COVID19, city ordinances, recommended quarantines, and public health, our upcoming tour with Inter Arma, Greet Death, and All Your Sisters has been postponed until further notice. Our miracle team has been working diligently to reschedule and honor this tour and we will update everyone with new information as soon as possible. Like so many other hard working people in the touring world being affected by the virus, we appreciate your patience and understanding while we all work through this.
No updates yet on the status of any of our future tour dates we still have listed at deafheaven.com

Despite making an attempt earlier this week to carry out with the tour, Magnum were forced to join the cancellation trend as their European Tour is officially off:
“It is with a heavy heart that we must finally concede to the inevitable.
A combination of government measures in numerous countries, and liaising with promoters and our co-headliners Gotthard has meant that ultimately the decision has been taken out of our hands.
The Serpent Rings Tour will be postponed until later this year and early next. Dates will be announced as soon as possible.
Those with tickets will be entitled to a refund or to attend rescheduled shows – information on this will be given as soon as we know more.
We’re very sorry to all the loyal fans who were looking forward to coming to see us. But even more than this we are sorry for those who will feel the financial impact of this for months and even years to come. Our friends, the crew, who now have empty diaries and no immediate prospect of new shows of any kind. Our support acts, promoters, venue staff, security, bar staff and the touring industry as a whole – all of whom face exceptionally hard times now.
It was never our intent to cause anger and hurt with our previous defiance. With so much already paid for, contracts all in place and the band all rehearsed and ready to go we had very little choice but to try and carry on despite mounting pressure. We really wanted to play more than you can imagine. We held on as long as we could.
Good luck to everyone in these troubled times. We’ll see you on the other side…
Bob, Tony, Rick, Lee, Dennis and all the Magnum team”
