Friday, September 16, 2005 8:54 AM PT

As I Lay Dying were voted Artist Of The Year for the Fifteenth Annual San Diego Music Awards this week. Other nominees in the category were Kark Denson's Tiny Universe, Louis XIV, Nickel Creek, Switchfoot, and Unwritten Law. AILD vocalist Tim Lambesis and drummer Jordan Mancino were in attentance to accept the award. Here's what Lambesis had to say:

"This award was truly a surprise! It would be one thing if the judges in some musical academy chose us, but this award means so much because it comes from our fans. We were up against some great bands including three major label favorites that we all respect. The people of San Diego have given us moresupport than we could ever ask for and we can't thank you enough!"

The moral of the story is: San Diego needs better bands.

I have to agree, the new record is awesome.

Interesting a band makes a 2 Album long song and they win an award. That's cute.

9/19/2005 11:04:04 AM
they're ok. first 2 albums were decent, latest was meh.

Well deserved. The only reason anyone hates on these guys is 'cause of their mainstream attention they have been recieving. Deep down, we all know they are pretty incredible musicians. Period.
