I See Stars added to Monster Energy Outbreak Tour

Tuesday, November 13, 2012 7:34 PM PT

Official press release:

I See Stars have been added to Asking Alexandria's "Monster Energy Outbreak Tour" with As I Lay Dying, Memphis May Fire and Attila. The North American trek kicks off Nov. 16th. I See Stars will be performing on the bill in-between Memphis May Fire and Attila.

Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce said the following of the situation: "First and foremost I would like to talk about a dear friend of mine who was prematurely taken from us this month. Mitch Lucker was one of the kindest and most passionate people I have ever had the pleasure of calling my friend. My thoughts are not only with his family and friends, but also with the millions of people, worldwide, who Mitch helped to mould and inspire into the people they are today. A great man was lost who's love and passion reached all corners of the globe. As many of you know, Suicide Silence were preparing to join us on our upcoming 'Outbreak' Tour. Due to the devastating circumstances they will no longer be joining us physically. They will however, Mitch included, be with us in spirit. We will go out on this tour with As I Lay Dying, Memphis May Fire & Attila to pay our tributes and respects to Mitch and his brothers in Suicide Silence. A portion of all tickets and official tour t-shirts sold will go to Mitch's daughter for the Kenadee Lucker Education Fund.

"Suicide Silence could never be replaced on our tour as they are the only band in the world who could bring their element, intensity and power to the line-up. For the sake of giving the fans the best show we can under the circumstances, we have decided to add Sumerian family members I See Stars to the bill, NOT AS A REPLACEMENT BY ANY MEANS, but as another band who's love and passion for music and their fans is as tried and true as ours. Now, more than ever, we need to come together to celebrate our collective love of music and to show compassion and solidarity in our scene. It's time to put aside all petty differences and remember what it is that brings us all together, the music. Mitch- from myself and everyone else who will be taking part in this tour, you are forever in our hearts. This one's for you. We love you. Cheers"

Sounds gay.

Ash punishes I See Stars for being immature, unprofessional pricks by putting them on a tour where they'll play for 2000 people a night. Sounds reasonable.

umm.. yeah... that's a replacement dude. if you didn't bring it up in huge caps nobody would've come at it from that angle.

Said it before and I'll say it again: ISS is a decent live band (although I would never buy any of their music). AILD, Attila and them make a solid lineup whatever the metal elitists want to say about it. Sucks that Mitch died, but SS was never very good; last show I went to I left before they even played.

if you were "moulded (sic) and inspired" into the person you are today by Suicide Silence...congrats, you just might have failed.

If you honestly think I See Stars is good life, or that Attila is a remotely good band, or that this tour is a pretty good tour, then you are a waste of flesh and fluids.
I just saw Attila like sunday, I don't understand how you mess up such simple instruments.
I saw I See Stars in June. Worst 30 minutes of my life.
I don't know what happened to music, but I know it's not right.
All in all, scene-fcks are stoked

Suicide Silence should've still played but doing their songs as instrumentals.
