Lady Gaga's "little monsters" couldn't even come close to the gayry that will be displayed on this tour

8/31/2012 12:11:01 PM
Well, this sounds like punishment. I kinda dont wanna drink monster anymore.

8/31/2012 12:30:39 PM
Good lineup, don't see how AA headlines over SS and AILD but oh well, that's what huge album sales will do for ya.

8/31/2012 12:36:08 PM
if AA headlining over AILD is a casual thing now...then i'm definitely not "with the times"

8/31/2012 12:36:55 PM
Damnit, enough of these shit little kid tours with shit little kid bands!

8/31/2012 12:48:50 PM
Really?! Asking Alexandria is headlining this?!

8/31/2012 12:53:59 PM
Staying at home watching Killadelphia > Attending this tour.

8/31/2012 12:56:57 PM
haters gonna hate?

8/31/2012 1:33:57 PM
punching my sack repeated times>this tour

8/31/2012 1:45:08 PM
AA headlining over As I Lay Dying?

i couldn't give one volcanic shit about this.

8/31/2012 1:59:49 PM
small arena tour. will attend and be baffled, will laugh and leave. will grab thai food

8/31/2012 2:30:00 PM
I am 34 years old. I have heard about all of these bands, but I've only listened to as i lay dying. This seems like a shit tour. Maybe I'm wrong. But why can't someone put something like Coliseum/ASG/Red Chord/Keelhaul/He Is Legend for one of these 5 band "rockstar boner drink" tours? some variety? some originality? what the fck

8/31/2012 2:41:56 PM
How is Asking Alexandria headlining over As I Lay Dying

8/31/2012 3:22:49 PM
backpack moshers are stoked.

8/31/2012 3:23:09 PM
More like an outbreak of AIDS. LOL! AMIRITEGUYS?

8/31/2012 3:27:47 PM
Im pretty excited over the start of college football tomorrow

8/31/2012 3:30:47 PM
AILD should drop off this shit tour, they are too good for this.

8/31/2012 4:12:59 PM
Scene girls are stoked

8/31/2012 4:24:48 PM
crying and posting on a tour page of bands i don't like in the first place > seeing this show.

And of course they're opening for AA, janitor positions weren't available ;)

8/31/2012 4:50:35 PM
that is a massive tour, like or not like these bands...

8/31/2012 5:55:51 PM
Wait, where is Emmure on this list?

8/31/2012 7:15:00 PM
"Backpack Moshers are stoked" I lol'd at that. If this comes anywhere near Delaware like Philly or even Allentown or Baltimore I'll probably go for the first 3 bands whom I like then stick around for AILD since I'll probably never catch them live again and then leave when the scenegasm shitfest known as Asking Alexandria plays.

8/31/2012 7:34:46 PM
I feel bad for as i lay cry9ing

8/31/2012 8:28:56 PM
How does AILD get stuck on a tour with all these shit bands? I mean, yeah, sure, all the Hot Topic rats will skip the Rave that night to go pleasure to AA doing shitty Skid Row covers, then AILD will play and they'll be like "Woah dude! Brutal! They have screaming and stuff! I have to buy 4 t-shirts!" so they'll make a few dollars off of it, but come on. This is a dckinbuttfest. As I Lay Dying deserves so much better than an opening spot for a band that plays techno with breakdowns.

8/31/2012 8:40:32 PM
Dont care for AA but really want to see As I Lay Dying please come somewhere near jacksonville or better yet come to jacksonville

8/31/2012 9:03:23 PM
Will go for attila as I lay dying and suicide silence. If it passes thru town that is. As I lay dying puts on a good show, at least when you're hammered drunk they do. Stoked? Does a bear shit in the pope's hat?

9/1/2012 12:06:11 AM
If you don't go to these shows for the scene girls you are a bastufft dwellers

9/1/2012 12:07:16 AM
"But why can't someone put something like Coliseum/ASG/Red Chord/Keelhaul/He Is Legend for one of these 5 band "rockstar boner drink" tours? "

Because that lineup, does, MAX, 200 a kids on the biggest dates. This tour listed, probably does average 2000 on the whole tour. So if you're "energy drink marketing guy," where do you put YOUR money??

9/1/2012 12:08:52 AM
AILD have been gone a long time; their "style" of music has fallen off in that time. I'm sure this is a calculated "risk" to have them play before AA to ensure they're playing to a room full of kids, rather than headlining a tour and having a walkout after AA or just low turnouts, in general.

9/1/2012 12:51:13 AM
Memphis May Fire is the only decent bands

9/1/2012 12:52:03 AM
AILD hasn't been relevant in years.AA is the biggest scene band in the world atm. Of couse they would headline this

9/1/2012 12:54:44 AM
Asking Alexandria headliner - 2000-2500 kids
As I Lay Dying headliner - 500-700 kids

If I were to be completely honest, I think in most markets Memphis May Fire would outdraw As I Lay Dying right now. This tour will be in small arenas. Love or hate any of these bands, it is mindblowing to think that there is a metalcore tour with 5 bands on independent labels that is doing arenas for probably $25-30 a head.

9/1/2012 5:47:21 AM
^ I bet his sister can suck a mean dck.

9/1/2012 9:30:06 AM
Holy fck you guys better come to Albuquerque

9/1/2012 9:44:34 AM
The Statutory beat Is Still beat Tour 2k12

"If I were to be completely honest, I think in most markets Memphis May Fire would outdraw As I Lay Dying right now."

I don't think MemphisMayFIre are as big as they appear right now, but I wouldn't be surprised if they could outdraw AILD in some places, for sure.

9/1/2012 11:39:02 AM
Shay can easily stick a monster energy can up her taco, good spokeswoman

9/1/2012 1:50:31 PM
if you think Memphis may fire can out draw As I Lay Dying in any market your an idiot.

9/1/2012 3:53:37 PM
stoked to see the tour, but AA headlining over AILD and SS?.. hmmm...

9/1/2012 4:46:20 PM
Attila and as I lay dying are sick I'll drink through the others. Come to the Burgh!

9/1/2012 5:10:30 PM
mmf is alot bigger than AILD in 2012. Deal with it

9/1/2012 5:32:10 PM
Why do you gays care which scene bands are bigger?

9/1/2012 6:29:04 PM

9/2/2012 11:10:35 AM
"if you think Memphis may fire can out draw As I Lay Dying in any market your an idiot."

Welcome to September, 2012. I'm sorry if you're a bit behind, but you'll catch up, eventually.
Suicide Silence are definitely nowhere even kind of close to being able to play after AA.

9/2/2012 11:57:10 AM
Well when a band outsells another band on their most recent releases...they headline over that band....

9/2/2012 1:51:07 PM
^ Corey Taylor is in da house.

9/2/2012 2:02:39 PM
haha dude this tour is so sick i dont know wat all ya puss monkeys are talking about. show AA some love and attila makes every show just amazing, bout to go HAM

9/2/2012 2:49:35 PM
Shay did a porno where she put one of the big ass Monster Energy drink cans up her taco, and put a 5 hour energy drink bottle up her jerk
