As I Lay Dying

Limited Edition As I Lay Dying Vinyl Reissues Planned


In a move sure to cause controversy, Metal Blade plan to reissue select As I Lay Dying albums on limited edition colored vinyl in January. As I Lay Dying have remained a taboo subject in metal due to the band’s frontman Tim Lambesis. Lambesis spent roughly two years in prison after he pled guilty to a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder. The charge stemmed from Lambesis unknowingly attempting to hire an undercover cop posing as a hitman at the time to murder his then wife, Meggan Lambesis, back in 2013.

While Lambesis has been out of jail since December 2016, little has been seen of him in the public eye. There have been rumors of him planning to resurrect the group however.

That said, on January 26th Metal Blade will be launching limited edition vinyl pressings of 2003’s “Frail Words Collapse” on opaque brown/opaque yellow vinyl and 2005’s “Shadows Are Security” on opaque blue/opaque yellow vinyl. Both are expected to be limited to 1500 copies each. Amazon have pre-orders up for both pressings here and here respectively.
