The Empire Shall Fall Cancel May Shows, Band Taking Time Off Due to Leach’s ‘Obligations to Killswitch Engage’

The Empire Shall Fall have been forced to cancel their May shows and announced that they will be taking time off from performing for the remainder of 2012.

The band plans to complete work on their planned EPs once Leach has a break from Killswitch Engage, “most likely no earlier than late 2013.”
