As I Lay Dying have teamed up with August Burns Red vocalist Jake LuhrsHeartSupport organization to release a new mini-documentary titled ‘Misery Evolving‘. The 15-minute feature discusses the story of As I Lay Dying‘s Tim Lambesis through both his own words and that of his bandmates.

Lambesis went to prison after having attempted to hire an undercover cop posing as a hitman to kill his previous wife Meggan back in 2013. He pled guilty to a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder and was eventually paroled in December of 2016. He has since remarried and reunited with his former bandmates while also pursuing a career in addiction treatment counseling. He was shown to have been addicted to steroids around the original time of his incarceration.

Speaking on the documentary, the band issued the below collective statement:

“In the spirit of Mental Health Awareness month, a time committed to raising awareness and resources for people struggling with all forms of mental illness, we’ve partnered with Heart Support to share a video detailing more of the personal side of our experiences through the years. We wanted to share this part of our story exclusively through an outlet that exists to provide emotional support for anyone dealing with inner turmoil. Whether it’s with addiction, suicidal thoughts, depression, or abuse, we believe in the community they’ve created to connect with those who are in need of recovery or healing.

Through this video, our goal is to share our experiences so that others going through troubled times know there is help around even when feeling desperate and alone. Healing can be a long and indefinite journey. It is one we are continuously proactive in walking towards personally and together. Our past has shown us there are devastating consequences in leaving emotional and mental turmoil unaddressed. Our hope is to highlight the importance of actively seeking help, directing traffic towards a resource for doing so, and encouraging anyone who knows they need it to take the first step.

With Love and Gratitude,

Jordan, Nick, Phil, Josh, Tim
