BOSTON (CelebrityAccess) — American metalcore band Killswitch Engage announced a round of rescheduled dates after they were forced to postpone a tour earlier this year.
The tour is now set to launch on November 24th at the Strand in Providence, RI, with dates scheduled through early December, when the band wraps up their run at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ.
Born of Osiris, Crowbar and Death Ray Vision will provide support for the tour.
The tour was originally scheduled to take place in April and May but the band was forced to postpone the run after frontman Jesse Leach required surgery on his vocal cords.
“We, unfortunately, have some unpleasant news to share. Killswitch Engage have to cancel their upcoming tour from April-26 thru May-05. Earlier today we found out Jesse needs to have surgery to repair an issue with his vocal chords. He is expected to make a full recovery and be fine for any future touring, but to avoid any future risk we unfortunately have to pull off these dates now. Our intention is to postpone the headline shows in Sayreville, Louisville, Cleveland & Poughkeepsie and get back to our fans as soon as possible,” a rep for the band announced on April 25th.
