Light the Torch have announced their tour plans for the summer and fall of 2018.

To kick things off, Light the Torch will play their first show ever at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn on Monday, July 9. The show will be presented by Revolver. Fans from all over the world can “attend,” as Revolver will live stream the entire performance via Facebook Live. The show will include contests and giveaways, with more details to be revealed in the coming days.


Light the Torch will then hit the road for the rest of the month, including supporting GWAR for several midwest dates. After that, Light the Torch will serve as the opening act on the upcoming Trivium and Avatar North American tour, which runs from October 3 through November 3. All Light the Torch tour dates, including a festival appearance, are below. Tickets are available here.

Light the Torch members are eager to return to the touring circuit. “We are excited and ready return to the road. We can’t think of a better way to support our new album Revival than with GWAR in July and Trivium and Avatar in the fall. Come join us for good times and singalongs,” said singer Howard Jones.

“It’s been too long since we have performed, and with our new album, we are going to make up for lost time. Come hang with us when we come through your town with GWAR this summer and with Trivium and Avatar in the fall. We can’t wait to see you all!” said guitarist Francesco Artusato.

The band released its new album Revival in March via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The album sold nearly 5,000 copies its first week in stores. It is available for purchase here.
