Some Of As I Lay Dying’s U.S. Dates Have Been Selling Out

Like their European dates, As I Lay Dying’s U.S. dates have started selling out.

On June 16, As I Lay Dying played their first show since Tim Lambesis was released from prison in December 2016 after infamously trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife in 2013. The set took place at the SOMA Sidestage in San Diego, CA and an official video recap is now available below. Fan-filmed footage of the full concert can be found HERE. The group commented:

“We are thankful for an environment of love and positivity within and around our renewed relationships. To the family, friends, crew, and fans in attendance at our recent San Diego show, we would like to express our deepest sense of gratitude for making the evening such a meaningful experience.”

Brian Fair (Shadows Fall, Etc.) Comments On As I Lay Dying’s Controversial Return

Brian Fair (Shadows Fall, Downpour, & Hell Night) is one of the few members of the metal community to comment on the controversial return of Tim Lambesis and As I Lay Dying. Lambesis infamously tried to hire a hitman to murder his wife back in 2013 and was released from prison in 2016. Fair said the following:

“When I first heard of Tim‘s arrest I was shocked and disgusted to see someone I knew well, who built his following based on faith and righteousness commit such a heinous act directed at his family. I wrote “Serpent’s Tongue” by Downpour in response.”

“Their current revival has been tough to digest. I do believe in second chances but that doesn’t guarantee forgiveness or redemption. Those have to be earned with deeds and not words. I guess time will tell.”

“As far as the other members are concerned, I consider them friends and have to believe they see a change in Tim. I remain skeptical but will reserve judgement as this plays out.”
