Commented AS I LAY DYING frontman Tim Lambesis: "We couldn't be more excited about this short stretch of shows we have planned in the Southern California area. Playing shows all across Southern California is the perfect framework for our upcoming DVD. We are all proud San Diegans and even more proud of the diehard fans we have extending up the California coast. Each show on this mini tour will be distinctly different so that we capture every side of what AS I LAY DYING is all about as well as what we've gone through in the seven and half years of our history. These are shows you won't want to miss."
