    Following their controversial comeback last year, As I Lay Dying will continue to hit the road in 2019, having just announced a spring North American trek.

    The band’s reunion was met with a mixed reaction, with a number of fans expressing dismay at the metalcore act’s decision to re-form with singer Tim Lambesis, who was famously imprisoned after pleading guilty to hiring a hitman to murder his estranged wife.

    Despite the backlash, As I Lay Dying embarked on successful tours of Europe and the States this past fall, with the band even upgrading to larger venues in Europe to meet ticket demand.

    In a message posted in December, Lambesis addressed the backlash, writing, “I stand against who I became in my past and am pursuing a new purpose in the rebirth of AILD. We collectively are. People who support AILD are not supporting the person I once was, because part of my life’s work now is to undo the hurt I’ve caused and to help others in addiction. Instead, I think AILD fans are supporting the belief that people can change.”

    The newly announced tour kicks off March 15th in St. Louis, Missouri, and works its way through the Midwest, Northeast and Southeast before wrapping up April 6th in Springfield, Missouri. See the full list of dates below. You can get tickets here.
