As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis comments on Nick Hipa's departure
As I Lay Dying vocalist and co-founder Tim Lambesis has now publicly addressed the departure of guitarist Nick Hipa, which while originally revealed a year ago, was only made official late last month.
Lambesis had the following to say via Instagram (see below):
"Being able to have different opinions or priorities but to still deeply care for another person's wellbeing is something that's often lost in our current climate. I just want to say that I truly wish Nick Hipa the best in his next chapter of life, and I'm thankful he wishes me/AILD the same.
"I've wanted to focus on music for past few years because it takes me back to why I started AILD in the first place 20 years ago. I look forward to writing new music and seeing many of you on tour again soon!"
