As I Lay Dying issue official statement on departure of Nick Hipa

Mon, September 20, 2021 4:01 PM PT17,259 views

More than a year since its occurrence, As I Lay Dying have formally acknowledged the 2020 departure of guitarist Nick Hipa (vocalist Tim Lambesis did personally address Hipa's exit earlier this month). Today the band issued a collective statement in which they thanked fans for their patience in awaiting for "an official band statement" on the matter.

Said statement reads as follows:

"We've been laying low for the past 18+ months adapting back into normal home life routines as the world tries to navigate itself through the Covid pandemic. It brings us a lot of excitement seeing live events coming back with many of our peers and friends returning to their life's passion, playing shows.⁣

"Through this downtime from touring and being creatively active with AILD, we've found ourselves reflecting on which direction each of us must take individually and collectively as a band. We appreciate all the patience from our fans and close community in regards to an official band statement on the departure of Nick Hipa from AILD over a year ago.⁣

"The remaining members of AILD respect Nick's decision to move on from the band and forging a new path in life. We will certainly look back fondly at the many great memories, experiences, and accomplishments we shared together over the years. We will be nothing but supportive and encouraging to all of Nick's endeavors post-AILD and we wish him the absolute best moving forward.⁣

"Thanks to our fans for understanding and we will update everyone shortly on more future plans for AILD."

Nick Hipa issues official response to official statement of As I Lay Dying on departure of Nick Hipa

Nick Hipa got what he deserved, got kicked out of the band that was part of over half his life. He learned a valuable lesson not to betray the hand that feeds. He looks like a big guy but he's a small boy. Tim towers over him but not because of stature. Tim is the pack alpha, and when it's time it's time and you can't say no.


anonymous 68 days ago

all this cuz of a woman tsk tsk tsk Tim just give it up and join the other team bro. We'll be waiting for ya.


anonymous 68 days ago

Good lord, who f*cking cares? Slow news day huh?

Nick is the only real Christian in the band. Upon finding out that Tim grew boobs and was pounding daily by Jamal in jail he immediately knew it was his time to leave the band.


anonymous 68 days ago

Nick might be the only real Christian Left in the band but I don't think that's why he left. I think he left because Tim turned into a huge anti-mask asshole last summer. Remember all those Long Beach anti maskers went viral on YouTube and shit? That's the kind of person Tim is in real life. Nick had the forbearance of Jude dealing with that shit as long as he did.
