As I Lay Dying have announced a European tour which will take place later this year.

The reunited lineup featuring vocalist Tim Lambesis, drummer Jordan Mancino, bassist Josh Gilbert and guitarists Phil Sgrosso and Nick Hipa will play a total of 15 shows in December.

The band played a comeback gig last month in San Diego – their first since Lambesis was released from prison in 2016 after he was jailed in 2014 for plotting to have his wife murdered.

That was followed by their new single My Own Grave.

Following the San Diego show, the band posted a short recap video of the performance on Facebook, saying: “We are thankful for an environment of love and positivity within and around our renewed relationships. 

“To the family, friends, crew, and fans in attendance at our recent San Diego show, we would like to express our deepest sense of gratitude for making the evening a meaningful experience.”

In December last year, Lambesis issued a lengthy public apology for his past actions, saying: “I apologise to my former wife and remarkable children for my appalling actions. There’s not a single day that goes by where I don’t wish I could undo the damage I caused."

During his time in prison, Mancino, Gilbert, Sgrosso and Hipa formed Wovenwar with vocalist Shane Blay.
