Angry RANT: I'd like to kill As I Lay Dying's tour manager! *SPOILERS*

Look at these shithole dumps that they have been booked into on their current tour!:

This is a band whose last album sold 40,000 copies in the first week alone! Who HEADLINED 2006 Sounds Of The Underground! Yet Dimmu Borgir, whose last album sold ONLY 14,000 copies in the first week came here and HEADLINED what was the BIGGEST club in town TWICE IN A YEAR!!! Why the fuck is AILD being booked into these smaller clubs?!?!?! They could EASILY sell out a 4,000 capacity club! God, I'd love to know who their fucking idiot tour manager is. Probably some GREEDY fuck who is trying to do this tour as cheap as possible! They deserve much better than this! Then again, so do a LOT of other bands out there.

Well, thanks for listening to my rant. What do you think?

Headliner's in Louisville is nice, and relatively big when you take into account the upstairs. I've seen Between the Buried and Me and Nile headline there. As I Lay Dying do not deserve better than those bands, and there's nothing wrong with Headliner's anyway.

Probably the majority of the copies they sold were bought by kids too young to go to shows.

They get venues half the size of the ones you've just posted in Europe. And bands MUCH, MUCH bigger then them only get venues around 500-capacity.

AILD is nowhere near as big they are now as they were in 2006-2007. The whole christian metalcore jesus scene is almost nonexistant with kids nowadays.

So you're pissed that a band will be playing a smaller, more intimate venue? Okay then.

They are playing the House of Blues in Orlando, which is exactly where they were at 3 years ago when I seen them last.

Yes. Actually, I wish they were as big as Metallica and Iron Maiden.
