As I Lay Dying issues statement

Left with little choice, As I Lay Dying has now publicly commented on yesterday's arrest of frontman Tim Lambesis, who is charged with soliticing someone to murder his estranged wife. Here you go:
To our fans, As we post this, the legal process is taking it's 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. - Jordan, Nick, Phil, and Josh

Hey anonymous..."you're band"? You are saying "you are band", you dumb ignorant trash. And how are they noobs? I wish he would have out the hit on your retarded ass.

"dumb ignorant" is redundant, and you left out a comma. You basic.

anonymous 5/8/2013 5:50:25 PM

Of course they're thoughts are with Tim. They're all thinking "was he going to hire someone to kill me next?"


anonymous 5/8/2013 5:54:15 PM

cut sleeved t-shirts are not stoked


anonymous 5/8/2013 5:55:38 PM

MeatDelivery 5/8/2013 5:56:21 PM

I'm sure their original statement was "holy shit, he did what?"


anonymous 5/8/2013 5:56:31 PM

He's a rich christian kid. Will only be locked up for 94 hours.


anonymous 5/8/2013 5:56:43 PM

"Our Careers Lay Dying" So sad, yet so on point. Haven't seen the quality of LambGoat comments such as today's in years.


anonymous 5/8/2013 5:56:57 PM

fck these jerks and the Christ they rode in on. Why don't you go back to your fcking church and pray about it some more bitches


anonymous 5/8/2013 6:09:44 PM

Such a shame. And they had a huge following. I guess laser tattoo removal centers are stoked


Snoopy2 5/8/2013 6:17:46 PM

Your thoughts are with your fans? Okay, here's what they're thinking: disband. You fcking useless fools


anonymous 5/8/2013 6:18:58 PM

they should quit now while they still have a chance at having a half decent career irl


anonymous 5/8/2013 6:21:24 PM

Also we are not homosexuals

long_insured_now 5/8/2013 7:34:51 PM

This just in, AILD has launched a kickstarter campaign to hire the attorney that got Casey Anthony off.


anonymous 5/8/2013 7:56:18 PM

LET'S FIND OUT THE FACTS...BUT I TOTALLY AGREE...A CHRISTIAN BAND??? REALLY?? WTH MAKES A MAN WANT TO DO THAT TO ANY HUMAN BEING...AND CALL HIMSELF A "CHRISTIAN". NO EXCEPTIONS. ROIDS??? YOU NEVER KNOW. WHAT A SHAME, WHATEVER IT IS. I REALLY LOOKED FORWARD TO SEEING THEM HERE IN JAX NEXT MONTH, BUT I DOUBT HE WILL BE OUT OF JAIL. WHAT A SHAME AND DISGRACW FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED IF IT IS TRUE. GLAD I DIDN'T DIVORCE HIM!!!


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:01:00 PM

^WHAT ARE YOU YELLING ABOUT?


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:06:36 PM

i noticed that their prayers are not with him along with their thoughts


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:12:14 PM

thanks for understanding? Oh yeah, I completely understand the frontman of your band is a misogynist roid-head. Maybe this will cause metal blades money-maker to break up.


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:14:41 PM

also, "He's a rich christian kid. Will only be locked up for 94 hours." lol.


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:15:41 PM

Jesus-0, Satan-1


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:33:24 PM

The next person to make a 94 Hours joke deserves a hit out on them


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:38:12 PM

Hey Jerk face you have the face of a jerk


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:50:13 PM

dumb and ignorant are not redundant, they mean two completely different things. Ignorance is just not knowing, dumb is not having the capacity of knowing.


anonymous 5/8/2013 8:58:24 PM

People need to stop with the tasteless jokes and talking about his guilt. Tim's life is hanging in the balance and he is innocent until proven otherwise. Have some faith, Tim deserves the support of his fans and not to be mocked.


anonymous 5/8/2013 9:01:36 PM

some more bitches ^ yes, please


anonymous 5/8/2013 9:04:17 PM

"As I Lay Dying," sucks.


anonymous 5/8/2013 9:07:04 PM

"People need to stop with the tasteless jokes and talking about his guilt. Tim's life is hanging in the balance and he is innocent until proven otherwise. Have some faith, Tim deserves the support of his fans and not to be mocked." Dude asked for someone to kill his wife. He was then SET UP...and then he asked the cop the exact same thing. Motherfcker is guilty now. But go pray about it.


anonymous 5/8/2013 9:18:38 PM

Biitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks


anonymous 5/8/2013 9:19:03 PM

My thoughts of "As I Lay Dying suck" Has nothing personally to do with tim, just the music. Hopefully he is found innocent!!!


anonymous 5/8/2013 10:00:43 PM

his family? you mean the wife he tried to have killed? or the mother of his adopted child he tried to kill? fck this dude. what retard hires a random hitman?


anonymous 5/8/2013 10:06:14 PM

Our thoughts are with his family: `shit...i hope he didn`t put a hit out on the rest of them.`


anonymous 5/8/2013 10:06:15 PM

Bandmates who put off a real job/family lives to pursue a career in a band for 10+years only to be fcked over by Tim Lambesis who didn't want to give half his shit to his ex-wife are not stoked!


anonymous 5/8/2013 10:55:41 PM

As She Lays Dying.


anonymous 5/8/2013 10:55:43 PM

king diamond is their new vocalist, a rep at metalblade told me


anonymous 5/8/2013 11:12:36 PM

ever feel like throwing your self to the wolves ?


anonymous 5/8/2013 11:24:01 PM

westboro baptist church will be picketing the trial


anonymous 5/8/2013 11:41:12 PM

Not sure how accurate this is but people in the know that are close to the situation claim that he is being framed by someone. The supposed transaction was done via the Internet or something, no actual physical interaction with police. As a matter of fact all of lambesis's social media pages show he was literally in china at the time of the supposed incident...your talking about a "good Christian" who no one has a bad word to say about. It's just a very bizarre situation.


anonymous 5/9/2013 12:03:20 AM

you people are such pathetic human beings... this is horrible and all you do is troll and make jokes.


anonymous 5/9/2013 12:45:03 AM

RickRock 5/9/2013 2:16:28 AM

Face it: Your bro is fcked.


anonymous 5/9/2013 2:23:12 AM

Notice how they didn't say our thoughts AND prayers are with Tim. God hates them all.


i_talk_shit 5/9/2013 6:31:48 AM

"you people are such pathetic human beings... this is horrible and all you do is troll and make jokes." ^ noob. welcome to lambgoat, thanks for stopping by.


anonymous 5/9/2013 6:32:27 AM

Hey..take it easy on the 'roids'. I once did roids and I didn't try to kill my wife.


anonymous 5/9/2013 7:30:36 AM

AILD can suck my dck - Tim's Dad


anonymous 5/9/2013 9:39:28 AM

Dont feel like copy/pasting, but to the literary scholar explaining ignorant and dumb... Dumb means you cant speak. Nothing is literal anymore. Coolest matter on LG is all you dorks trying to educated eachother.

anonymous 5/9/2013 1:25:00 PM

Was it going to be done in "94 hours"?


anonymous 5/9/2013 3:10:22 PM

Thou shall not kill... Thou shall hire someone


anonymous 5/9/2013 5:14:31 PM

^ This dude was Suicide Silence's #1 fan. He went on a hunger strike last winter, citing a conspiracy. He also thinks "Metal" was created somewhere between 2008-2009. He also owns his own yudu, aka, his own clothing company.


anonymous 5/9/2013 5:20:30 PM

"As a matter of fact all of lambesis's social media pages show he was literally in china at the time of the supposed incident...your talking about a "good Christian" who no one has a bad word to say about. It's just a very bizarre situation." Can you not read or are you just fcking stupid? Probably just starry eyed and hurt that a Christian would do such a thing, half of $14mil is $7mil, obviously putting Tim into the barely above the poverty line.


anonymous 5/9/2013 10:33:48 PM

Dont believe everything you read on the internet. Tim is not worth 14m. I'd love to see the creative math on this number


anonymous 5/10/2013 1:37:18 PM

^ thanks for clearing that up Tim's financial advisor. I bet all he has is a bunch of indiegogo preorders in his bank account, and tryed to have his wife killed because he didnt want her cutting into his gang vocals or instrument lessons.


anonymous 5/10/2013 4:23:00 PM

Drawing your strength from fans (the creature), not the Creator, is a dangerous place to be. Praying for you all.


anonymous 5/12/2013 12:55:00 AM

For Today is disappointed with Tim.


anonymous 5/13/2013 9:47:06 AM

"Drawing your strength from fans (the creature), not the Creator, is a dangerous place to be. Praying for you all." Go trustfall off a cliff. God will catch you, promise.


anonymous 5/13/2013 10:58:00 AM

Why hasn't recording been released? Why not get him on video? Finger print test the envelope, and pictures. It is quite easy to "get someone on a tape recorder". Quite the professional stake out lol. "Hi im tim It would be cool if my wife was dead". we got him!!! lol go blow. See you on tour in june AILD FTW!!


anonymous 6/14/2013 11:01:24 AM

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO L AT ALL THESE COMMENTS LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL


anonymous 6/29/2013 10:38:15 PM

TO ALL OF YOU WHO ARE KNOCKING TIM AND A.I.L.D, YOU'RE ALL A BUNCH OF fckIN MORONS WHO HAVE NO PLACE TO LEAVE A COMMENT. NICK AND THE CREW MADE A STATEMENT TO THE FRIENDS AND FANS. OBVIOUSLY NONE OF YOU ARE TRUE FANS NOR FRIENDS. SO WITH THAT, IF YOU PLAN TO LEAVE A LAME COMMENT SHOWING NO SUPPORT TO THE BAND AND THOSE ASSOCIATED, PASS THIS WHOLE PAGE UP AND NOT MAKE A COMMENT. IF YOU DO, THE. YOU'LL LOOK JUST LIKE ANY OF THESE OTHER POSER TOOLBAGS!
