‘As I Lay Dying’ Pull Out Of ‘Killswitch Engage’ North American Tour, Replacement Announced


AILD 2012With just a matter of days to go until As I Lay Dying were meant to hit the highways of North America for a tour with Killswitch Engage, the band have announced that they will no longer be performing as scheduled. With their vocalist facing a lengthy prison sentence, the rest of the band have decided to lay low, rather than push on with a replacement.

Said his bandmates in a statement:

To our fans,

In light of recent events, As I Lay Dying will unfortunately not be taking part in the upcoming tour with Killswitch Engage. Given the circumstances, we feel that it is best for the band to be off the road while the current situation gets sorted. We’d like to thank all of our fans for their ongoing support at this difficult time.

-Jordan, Nick, Phil, and Josh

The future of their permanent vocalist Tim Lambesis, and the future of the band itself depend on a judges verdict Monday, 10th June. If found guilty of hiring a hitman to murder his estranged wife, Lambesis could face 9 years behind bars.

Lambesis’ lawyer Anthony Salerno will be arguing that his client was “sort of set up”, revealing that his estranged wife’s brother was a San Diego sheriff’s deputy, which is “at the bare minimum very coincidental, and it may be more than that”


Killswitch Engage commented: “Since As i Lay Dying has announced they will not be able to join us on this tour…we would like to welcome Darkest Hour, and The Word Alive on the Disarm the Descent 2013 US TOUR. Please welcome both bands with open arms, ROCK!”
