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”

Not a surprising statement from the band at all. With that news out in the open, Killswitch Engage officially announced As I Lay Dying's replacements:

“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!”
