Does anyone know what Tim's next trial date is? All I can find is that he had an arraignment on October 22nd.

For those still not interested and who don't care, Tim's court date was supposed to be the 15th of last month, but that got delayed until today so a plea bargain could be worked out (http://loudwire.com/tim-lambesis-murder-for-hire-hearing-delayed/). Hopefully the results of that will be announced soon.

The band did release some general, generic statement about it when it first happened, but they've kept completely quiet about it since that. Their guitar player Nick was interviewed at NAMM (http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/as-i-lay-dyings-nick-hipa-interviewed-by-george-lynch-video/), but no questions about it were even asked. Anyway, I'm not surprised the pleaded guilty since taking the case to court probably would have guaranteed the longest sentence possible.

Why would the band have to comment? Their singer is being brought to trial for attempting to have his wife murdered. Nothing they can say can put a positive spin on that or brush it under the carpet. They did well to remain as incognito as they did, considering the rest of them had the carpet ripped from under them in a big way.

Update from Loudwire:

For nearly a year, the future of As I Lay Dying has been in question. Vocalist Tim Lambesis will soon be sentenced after pleading guilty to murder-for-hire charges and the remaining band members have been posting various sound clips along with a mysterious new symbol. However, As I Lay Dying have finally released a statement addressing what is planned for their musical future.

A lot of content is addressed in As I Lay Dying’s new statement. Along with addressing their Christian background, As I Lay Dying talk about splitting into various factions. The only two official members of AILD are now Tim Lambesis and Jordan Mancino, who founded the band in 2000. However, the band will remain dormant for now. We also learn that the new symbol and sound clips shared by recent AILD members Mancino, Phil Sgrosso, Nick Hipa and Josh Gilbert are part of a separate project featuring vocalist Shane Blay. Finally, the statement reveals that, despite his upcoming sentencing, Tim Lambesis is forming yet another new project.

As I Lay Dying write:

There have been a lot of questions from fans over the past year and we’ll hopefully be able to provide more answers over time. However, this update is only to address things related to AILD’s future.

Originally, we said we’d update fans as soon as we knew more. We apologize for not sticking to that. It seemed best to wait until definitive news came in with a specific timeline. However, in light of speculation on other sites, an official update from As I Lay Dying seems to be the best way to clarify some things.

A good starting point is to clarify some things that have often been falsely reported. Tim was not a Christian at the time of his arrest, nor was As I Lay Dying a Christian band in 2013. It hadn’t been for some time and, to the best of my knowledge, only one of the people playing in the band even claimed to be a Christian at that time. The changed view had been written about it in a handful of As I Lay Dying songs and Tim’s later atheistic view had even been documented in court records. However, it doesn’t make as sensational of a headline to refer to the arrest of the “Ex-Christian Metal Sub-Genre Independent Artist” as it does the “Grammy Nominated Top 10 Selling Christian Rockstar” of the past.

With all that said, we don’t know how each musician from the previous era of As I Lay Dying will think about these topics in the future. For example, Tim has spent much of the last year reevaluating what originally convinced him to abandon belief in God. I have gathered that after much brokenness and repentance he sees things differently, considers himself a follower of Jesus, someone submitted to the will of God, or whatever you want to call it. That’s for him to talk about when he’s comfortable and only time will tell if he is sincere. What is certain though is that it’s impossible to face the events of last year without being changed in some way. Let’s let the guys focus on future music and hopefully the headline driven press will leave this issue alone for a while given some clarification.

Uncertainty ahead…
As I Lay Dying was originally founded/owned by Tim and then eventually the ownership was shared with Jordan about six years later. As the only official members, neither would like to move forward at the moment regardless off the upcoming sentencing time (which is still yet to be determined / not 9 years). There has been enough communication to establish some differences in opinion about what to do in the distant future. That keeps AILD’s future in limbo. The hibernating version of the band is just the official band owners, which means As I Lay Dying is Tim & Jordan. This is based on the uncertainty of the future, including who will be performing with the band when/if that time comes. There have been nearly 20 guys who filled the vacant bass or guitar positions in As I Lay Dying history. The current setup is definitely not a closed door on some of the ex-members talking in the future, but it just makes sense for now that AILD is only Tim and Jordan.

Two opinions…
Tim has acknowledged his guilt and clearly made some bad decisions in a period of time where he acted contrary to the person he’s been most of his life. He believes AILD should only pick back up if it’s in a form restored to its roots. For Tim, the potential of pursuing AILD again means working on a lot of other more important things in his personal life first.

On the other hand, Jordan feels differently about the future. Even if more discussions were to take place, he would rather take time to pursue other things. That includes releasing new music with three of the guys from the most recent As I Lay Dying lineup. It’s a chance for Jordan to be more involved in the songwriting process and enjoy other styles he’d rather play. In fact, they’ve already recorded their debut album and I’m sure it’ll be awesome. It’s not meant to replace As I Lay Dying because it is something stylistically different under a different name. Interestingly enough, their vocalist is also a former Christian like his new bandmates and was/is the guitar player for Oh Sleeper (Shane Blay). They’ll have stuff to release through Metal Blade relatively soon, which will be an exciting/interesting combination given the band’s more radio friendly sound.

In terms of music, Tim doesn’t want to pursue performing live music full time regardless of what length his sentence ends up being. His sentence certainly won’t be forever, but even so, touring full time doesn’t seem healthy or practical given his new outlook and goals. Creating new music is the part Tim loves most and he will always continue to release albums. That includes a bunch of stuff he has recorded in the past six months that he will announce a project name for soon as well. As an occasional ear behind the scenes, it is good hear him playing guitar again and writing lots of riffs again like he did across the first five As I Lay Dying releases.

Hopefully that addresses the major questions related to As I Lay Dying. AILD is sleeping rather than dead, and there are two separate projects to hold you over whether or not it is awakened again.

Stay tuned for further updates on As I Lay Dying and the various projects of the band’s current and former members. Tim Lambesis is scheduled to be sentenced on May 2.

As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis finally had his day in court today, May 16th, after a series of delays. Lambesis was sentenced to six years in prison after having pled guilty to a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder. He was charged with the offense after attempting to hire an undercover detective posing as a hitman to murder his estranged wife, Meggan Lambesis.

A report from the sentencing running over at Radio.com has word that various As I Lay Dying bandmates were in attendance during the sentencing. The parents of Meggan and she herself also spoke during the proceedings, claiming that her life had “felt as fragile as a piece of paper that could float away at any moment.”

She also mentioned that Tim would repeatedly quote the “Total Recall” line ”consider that a divorce” which was delivered after Arnold Schwarzenegger shot his fake wife in the film.

Judge Carlos Armour handed down the sentence and disputed the defense’s claims that the steroids played a major factor. He argued that numerous individuals use steroids and do not plot to kill their wives. He went on to insist that in Lambesis‘ case it was a “something twisted inside a character” to want to commit murder.

Meggan Lambesis and the pair’s adopted children will receive 10 years protection from Tim. Tim technically won’t be serving a full six years however as he is receiving 48 days credit for time already served.

Lambesis still faces a $2 million civil suit filed by his ex-wife.
