The classic lineup of California metallers As I Lay DyingTim Lambesis on lead vocals, Jordan Mancino on drums, Phil Sgrosso on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Nick Hipa on lead guitar and backing vocals, and Josh Gilbert on bass and clean vocals — played its first comeback show last Saturday (June 16) at Soma Sidestage in San Diego, California. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.

Earlier in the month, As I Lay Dying released a new song called ‘My Own Grave’ (video) which marked the first fresh music from the band since it released its sixth album, “Awakened”, back in September 2012.

In May 2014, As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis was sentenced to six years in jail after pleading guilty to paying a San Diego police officer posing as a hit man $1,000 to kill his wife. Approximately two and a half years later — on December 17, 2016 — he was discharged from a California detention facility and was transferred to the Division of Adult Parole Operations.

Last December, Lambesis released a statement in which he apologized to his former wife and children for his “appalling actions.” He also accepted responsibility for being “the sole offender and the only one to blame for everything that happened.”

The $10 tickets to As I Lay Dying‘s first show since 2013 at the 300-capacity Soma Sidestage reportedly sold out in four minutes. It was said to be the band’s decision to play on a smaller stage rather than the 2,000-capacity mainstage.

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 AgainstNOFXPropaghandi, The Casualties and many more. The album was mixed by Colin Richardson  [Machine Head, Napalm Death, Slipknot].
