KILLSWITCH ENGAGE TOUR CANCELLATION]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

Damn shame that the actions of one man effect the lives of 4 others(Not including the victim and her family).

Lol, "we feel that it is best," as if they have a choice.

well they could have gotten a fill-in vocalist or something, there's ways around stuff like that but its always best to not go about it that way

I'm not too sure it would be in the best interests of the rest of the band or the other bands on the tour for AILD to scrap together for this. Not great PR.

or they could just jam songs without any singer and let the fans scream. they gotta shove this shit back in Tim's face saying "we can do this without you"

They were a support act, I'm doubting refunds are going to be offered.

And I have no idea regarding a replacement.

I know they were but they were still a lofty direct support act, like if Megadeth opened for Metallica that's still a big deal. This is just on a smaller scale.

There has got to be a pretty big mid level band to be direct support. I mean their are options folks of a decent replacement.
