As I Lay Dying Cancel European Tour With Dying Fetus & Emmure

As I Lay Dying have cancelled their upcoming European tour with Dying Fetus and Emmure. The trek was unable to move forward due to issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As I Lay Dying commented:

“Due to the ongoing covid situation, which is still affecting many events and international touring in Europe, we’re saddened to say that we see no option at this point but to completely cancel our 20th anniversary tour in March-April with Dying Fetus and Emmure.

We had been very much looking forward to the tour and had hoped we could make it happen, but we must wait for touring conditions to improve before traveling internationally. We are very sorry for any inconvenience, please contact your point of purchase for a full refund on tickets.

On a brighter note, we are looking to reschedule shows in a lot of the same cities in November/December, including new dates in some additional cities. We are currently confirming support bands for those shows and will be announcing our new tour dates very soon, so make sure to keep an eye out!”

Bruce Greig (Ex-Misery Index, Ex-Dying Fetus, Etc.) Passes Away

Bruce Greig has sadly passed away at the age of 54. The guitarist was a former member of Misery Index, Dying Fetus, Next Step Up, Fear Of God, and more.

Misery Index issued the following statement:

“This is really hard to write. We are absolutely gutted to learn about the passing of Bruce Greig. As a member of the M.I. Family, He was a one of a kind riff master, and an overall infectiously positive dude…and we will miss him deeply. Bruce was the driving force behind the ever-influential Next Step Up, Together We Fall and Covenance, as well as District Heights Records (Stout, Sean Wells) and the defunct Bethany Recordings. In addition, Bruce’s past band resume includes Misery Index, Dying Fetus, Fear of God, Voxhumana, Spine, and Desecration.

A memorial gathering will be held on Tuesday, February 22 from 10-11 AM, followed by a memorial service at 11 AM at Kalas Funeral Home and Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Road, Edgewater, Maryland. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.”

Next Step Up also commented:

“It is with an extremely heavy heart that we inform everyone of the passing of long time member of the Next Step Up Family, guitarist Bruce Greig. Bruce devoted 20+ years to NSU, contributing to countless US dates, several European and Japanese tours, and various releases, before stepping away from playing music in September of 2021. Bruce was one of a kind, with his unique/infectious laugh and upbeat attitude. In addition, his dedication, loyalty, musicianship, and professionalism was unrivaled. He was 100% devoted to being a part of the music industry, whether playing/singing, releasing music on his label, or booking tours. Outside of Next Step Up, Bruce was the driving force behind Together We Fall and Covenance, as well as District Heights Records (Stout, Sean Wells) and the defunct Bethany Recordings. In addition, Bruce’s past band resume includes Misery Index, Dying Fetus, Fear of God, Voxhumana, Spine, and Desecration.

Rest In Power, Brucey Bruce… you are greatly missed, Brother.

A memorial gathering will be held on Tuesday, February 22 from 10-11 AM, followed by a memorial service at 11 AM at Kalas Funeral Home and Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Road, Edgewater, Maryland. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.”

As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis commented:

“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.”

Phil Sgrosso added:

“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.”
