As I Lay Dying to address questions this week

As I Lay Dying

While As I Lay Dying garnered quite a bit of attention (good and bad) last week with the release of their new single, "My Own Grave," many in the industry have been questioning the absence of an accompanying statement.

As many of their former (and current) fans are uncomfortable supporting the band in light of frontman Tim Lambesis' past, it was expected that he and/or his bandmates would issue some sort of explanation pertaining to their reactivation and return of the band's "classic" line-up. No such information has been provided... yet.

This morning As I Lay Dying attempted to temporarily mitigate the latest controversy by promising to provide answers later this week:

"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."

Stay tuned. Or not.

"Why are we such big pieces of shit?" Because we suck on our own and need the little bit of money we can generate with AILD.

Bill Cosby here, Hey Tim, keep your chin up. We all know it was the roids, just like we knew it was the Ambien with Roseanne. Just blame others. #keeprockin #puddingpops

Tim took responsibility for his actions and his decisions. You can either support AILD or not. Gtfoh with your holier than thou shit. If he had murdered his wife, would you still support him? Well, if he murdered his wife he wouldn't be out of jail, now and no I wouldn't.

I have no moral issue with Tim. AILD just sucks and I'm not 14 anymore. Can you please put out a statement to address this?

People sing about killing their wives and shit at least this guy actually tried to. More credible than most metal singers after his jail time. Lets see him and Fronz fight.

They can play all the breakdowns they want. It's not going to stop Alabama from repeating as CFB champion this year.

We don't care about attempted murder as long as we can get a paycheck out it at the end of the day. fck THESE SPINELESS BASTARDS. Money rules everything, regardless if you try to kill your wife. Christian scum.

My only question is what Tim's max bench was before prison and what is it now after prison.

the implication here is that you blame society for us caring about a dude who tried to kill his wife and that you think it should be okay. please fcking lynch yourself.

Question for the press release. do his t-ts lactate?

anonymous

maybe they would have gotten a tad less flak had they released the mission statement BEFORE trying to utilize a bunch of idiot christians need for watered down zao rip off breakdowns. but that wouldn't have gotten them press mileage. Are you seeing why this whole thing just reeks of shittiness yet? hey congrats, you sold out a 500 capacity room with a 10 dollar ticket. no shortage of people wanting a cheap entry to watch the freak show.

if there was not a shortage, they would have played the big room at soma. can't even do THAT right

"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."

ummm... there was no timeline on all of this dipshits. you had 4 years to figure out how to explain that you had every intention of milking tim's t-ts for your rent. "oh shit, we didn't know our song was coming out... sorry, gotta scramble to explain our greedy motives"

these guys are absolute idiots. 0 self awareness. typical of brainwashed youth group kids. the dudes in this band are probably more bummed out that underoath isn't christian anymore than what their own singer did (which is kind of in line with the fans of this bullshit)

They just completed my PR seminar on how to increase your sales with no cost to you. All you need to do is put a womans life at risk amd endanger the welfare of innocent children. Comes with a free steroid shot if you commit to 3 weeks a year in a time share in the Keys

Can we all admit that it'd be kinda funny for him to put a hit out on his band members after this whole debacle?

Aaron "Big c-ck" Bedard here, there appears to be some confusion about this "Final" European tour from my influential and positive hardcore band Bane. Allow me to clarify, this will be the FINAL chance to see Bane in Europe.. Last chance to dance kids, so represent until we return ofcourse for our 2019 package tour

Hey everyone, Tim Lambesis here, At least we won't play as bad as The Faceless. Even though a chimp can play most of our songs.

In fact, I live with a chimp now since my wife isn't with me anymore. I can tell you this... Chim Chim gives good foot jobs. #chimchim

Hey everyone, Nick Hipa here. It was really easy to write tim off when i thought he would go to jail for much longer, but nobody liked my new band, so I sucked tim's c-ck, pleaded for forgiveness and now i will roll around in my pile of money. oh yeah, we're a christian band again, tell your youth pastor to book us.
