As I Lay Dying Members Issue Statement on Frontman Tim Lambesis’ Murder-for-Hire Arrest

As I Lay Dying
Metal Blade

Yesterday (May 7), the metal world was shocked at the news that As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis had been arrested on suspicion of solicitation of murder charges for allegedly trying to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife. This evening (May 8), Lambesis’ bandmates have issued a statement to their fans in regard to the arrest.

As reported, Lambesis was arrested yesterday in Oceanside, Calif., after he allegedly tried to hire an undercover detective to murder his wife Meggan, who filed for divorce from the metalcore singer back in September 2012. Lambesis was booked at San Diego county’s Vista Jail and is expected to be arraigned Thursday (May 9) at 1:30PM PT.

In a post on their official Facebook page, the remaining members of As I Lay Dying — Jordan Mancino, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert — issued an official statement on the matter to their fans. The post reads as follows:

To our fans,

As we post this, the legal process is taking its course and we have no more information than you do. There are many unanswered questions, and the situation will become clearer in the coming days and weeks. We’ll keep you informed as best we can.

Our thoughts right now are with Tim, his family, and with everyone else affected by this terrible situation – and with our fans, whom we love and draw strength from.

Thank you for understanding, and as always, for your support of As I Lay Dying.

– Jordan, Nick, Phil, and Josh
