Last Friday As I Lay Dying released the brand new song ‘My Own Grave’. The video showed us that despite everything that has happened around frontman Lambesis in the past years, that the band is back together in it’s classic line-up — Tim 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. So this is some good news for the fans or AILD!

Nothing was said by the band members, there was only the new single / video, until today:

“It’s difficult to encapsulate all of the topics we want to address with a written statement. We understand there are many questions and we plan to address them this week.” Continue reading »

Tim Lambesis has broken his silence for the first time since he was released from prison after serving less than half of his six-year sentence for conspiracy to commit murder. Lambesis has released the following statement:

Words cannot begin to express how deeply sorry I am for the hurt that I have caused. There is no defense for what I did, and I look back on the person I became with as much disdain as many of you likely do.

First, I apologize to my former wife and remarkable children for my appalling actions. There’s not a single day that goes by where I don’t wish I could undo the damage I caused, and out of respect for their wishes I will not discuss anything else about them (now or in the future). I also ask anyone reading this to promote healing for them by respecting their privacy and defending them from any negativity or anger which should be directed towards me. I was the sole offender and the only one to blame for everything that happened. Continue reading »

According to Alternative Press, As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has been released from prison after serving less than half of his six-year sentence for conspiracy to commit murder.

Lambesis was discharged from a California detention facility on December 17, 2016 and was transferred to the Division of Adult Parole Operations.

“Everybody else is suffering. His wife is living in fear. His children are living in fear.”

Back in May 2014, Lambesis was given a six-year prison sentence without probation for his role in the murder-for-hire plot.

The now-36-year-old musician was arrested in May 2013 after handing the “hitman” — really an undercover police officer — $1,000 in cash, along with his wife’s address and gate security codes. Continue reading »
