As I Lay Dying Members Say Tim Lambesis Wrote New Band Statement Without Their Knowledge


It looks as though As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis wrote the statement posted earlier today on his and the bands future plans—as well of those of his bandmates—without their consent or prior knowledge. The four members of the band aside from Lambesis have since released their own new statement:

“Good day friends,

This morning an update was posted over at on the current happenings and individual futures of all the bands’ members. For Jordan, Josh, Nick, Phil, management, and record label, this was an interesting first time read as all parties were oblivious to its construction, intent, and release.

Though Tim is the only one with access to the As I Lay Dying site, the rest of us have been releasing content through our personal social media accounts to reveal that we are carrying on in a new band. Our truest intentions were to make this unveiling interesting and exciting for anyone who has supported us over the past year. With information so instantaneous and disposable these days, we had hoped to show you how things were coming together rather than simply tell you.

We never want to capture attention dramatically, which is precisely why we’ve been off the radar for close to a year. Though the third-person statement released earlier compromises a lot of how we had hoped to unroll things, we remain positive in our outlooks and look forward to sharing new music soon.

With love and gratitude,

Jordan, Josh, Phil, Nick

In the statement posted earlier today, Lambesis announced that As I Lay Dying had gone on hiatus and that he was pursuing new musical projects of his own. He also mentioned that the other members of the band had been working on a new group with Shane Blay of Oh, Sleeper fame on vocals.
