As I Lay Dying have announced a 20th anniversary tour of Europe that will take place next year. Supporting on the trek, dubbed Two Decades of Destruction, will be Dying Fetus and Emmure. As I Lay Dying sing Tim Lambesis said of the upcoming trek:

“I’m incredibly grateful to have a chance to go back out on tour and for the tremendous support we‘ve had on the ‘Shaped By Fire‘ touring cycle so far. When I started As I Lay Dying I never imagined we’d have a chance to travel the world as we have, and now we’ll be going back to places that feel like a second home at times. The band has been such an important part of my life personally, so it is very meaningful to see our music connect with so many other people as well.”

Guitarist Phil Sgrosso comments:

“It’s a huge milestone for the band to reach the 20-year mark, something which couldn’t have been done without the support and encouragement from our fans. We feel that it is our responsibility to them to keep pushing ourselves in providing better music and a better live show.

That is why we are looking to go bigger than we ever have before with our stage production as well as curating a live setlist that will span and highlight pinnacle moments from the band’s career. We are excited to return to the stage to celebrate this monumental occasion and hope to see many familiar faces in the crowd.

Big thanks to Impericon for having us as this year’s festival headliner as well as Dying Fetus and Emmure for joining us on the trek.”

Following the run, As I Lay Dying and Emmure will continue on the Impericon Festival tour. That trek will also features Bury Tomorrow, Neaera, Any Given Day, Your Demise, Ghostkid, Fit For A King, Landmvrks, Watch Out Stampede.
