Guitarist Nick Hipa Reportedly Exits As I Lay Dying


Lambgoat are reporting that guitarist Nick Hipa has exited As I Lay Dying. Citing a number of changes on the band’s and Hipa‘s own social media accounts (the two parties are no longer following each other), Lambgoat have apparently got confirmation from an unnamed source that Hipa is no longer in the band. Thus far an official statement on the matter has yet to be issued.

Last May, the band announced that its May/June 2020 “Burn To Emerge” U.S. tour would be rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The new dates will take place in February and March 2021, and will keep the same lineup with Whitechapel and Shadow of Intent.
