Wednesday, 8th May 2013

AS I LAY DYING members Jordan Mancino (drums), Phil Sgrosso (rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Nick Hipa (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Josh Gilbert (bass, clean vocals) have commented on the arrest of their singer, Tim Lambesis, for allegedly hiring someone to kill Tim’s estranged wife.

Says the band:

“To our fans,

“As we post this, the legal process is taking its course and we have no more information than you do. There are many unanswered questions, and the situation will become clearer in the coming days and weeks. We’ll keep you informed as best we can. Our thoughts right now are with Tim, his family, and with everyone else affected by this terrible situation — and with our fans, whom we love and draw strength from.

“Thank you for understanding, and as always, for your support of AS I LAY DYING.”

Lambesis was taken into custody without incident on Tuesday (May 7) around 2 p.m. at a Barnes & Noble bookstore in Oceanside, California, according to San Diego Sheriff’s Department.

He was charged with solicitation of another to commit murder of his wife, who resides in Encinitas.
