In light of their frontman being arrested in connection to a murder-for-hire plot, Christian metalcore band As I Lay Dying have announced they are officially dropping off their planned Summer tour with Killswitch Engage and Miss May I.
It was an expected announcement, but one fans still needed to hear. While Tim Lambesis sits in a California prison awaiting trial, the other members of As I Lay Dying, as well as their crew, are going to be taking some time off. A message from the band reads:
“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“
Darkest Hour and The Word Alive will be replacing As I Lay Dying. If you have tickets, we highly encourage you to still attend.
