After Tim Lambesis was arrested for allegedly attempting to hire an undercover officer to murder his wife, the fate of the upcoming As I Lay Dying/Killswitch Engage tour was up in the air. As I Lay Dying has now issued the following announcement about officially canceling the run:

"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."

Lambesis' bail was set at $3 million and he currently remains in custody. Further details on the case and footage from his arraignment can be found at this location.

Killswitch Engage will however be continuing on with the trek, bringing on different supporting groups. The band comments:

"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 U.S. TOUR! Please welcome both bands with open arms, ROCK!"

I think it truly sucks for his fans and most of all his band is suffering for his stupidity , as a struggling musician it bums me out that his band mates cant go on tour and do what they love and earned the right to do .
