As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis is expected to stand trial later this year on charges he tried to hire someone to kill his estranged wife. Lambesis‘ defense attorney, Tom Warwick, blamed the singer’s steroid use for the alleged murder-for-hire plot. He also revealed that the musician was going through steroid withdrawal while in custody.
Prosecutors allege Lambesis had twice told a man at a gym that he wanted his wife killed, then met with an undercover detective known as “Red“, and gave the agent an envelope containing $1,000 in cash, photographs of his wife, and the security gate code to her house. He also allegedly told the agent the dates he would be with the couple’s three adopted children, in order to give himself an alibi.
Awakened, the sixth album from As I Lay Dying, has been released Sept. 25 2012 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was produced by Bill Stevenson, who has played drums for both the Descendents and Black Flag and is one of the most highly renowned producers in rock. His production credits include work on records by Rise Against, NOFX, Propaghandi, The Casualties and many more. The album was mixed by Colin Richardson [Machine Head, Napalm Death, Slipknot].The cover artwork for Awakened was created by Metastazis with Tiffanie Uldry.
