AS I LAY DYING recently announced its fall U.S. tour for North America and Europe. The group will kick off the tour September 14 in El Paso, Texas in support of "The Powerless Rise" (Metal Blade) which debuted this spring on The Billboard 200 chart at No. 10. The tour — with support acts ALL THAT REMAINS, UNEARTH and CARNIFEX — will take AS I LAY DYING down south and throughout the Northeast, before making its way west through Canada and wrapping up October 11 in Chico, California. AS I LAY DYING will then end 2010 with shows throughout Europe.

"This is one of the best tour lineups we've ever been a part of as a headliner," explains lead vocalist Tim Lambesis. "I'm proud of the mark that all of our bands have made on the modern metal scene and we're finally touring together in one package. I especially can't wait to spend time with our good friends in Unearth since they are long time friends, label mates, and great personalities that never leave a dull moment!"

AS I LAY DYING just completed the "Cool Tour" with UNDEROATH, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, BLESSTHEFALL, THE ACACIA STRAIN, ARCHITECTS, CANCER BATS and WAR OF AGES on August 1.
