As I Lay Dying
Following As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis' recent arrest on murder-for-hire charges, the metalcore act has chosen to vacate their support position on Killswitch Engage's North American summer tour. With As I Lay Dying pulling out of the tour, it has just been announced that AILD's spot has been filled by Darkest Hour along with Arizona metalcore act the Word Alive. Previously announced acts on the bill include Miss May I and Affiance.
As reported last night, As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis pleaded not guilty in his shocking murder-for-hire case. Now, more details have emerged from the May 9 arraignment in San Diego. Video taken of the arraignment depicts Deputy District Attorney Claudia Grasso revealing the alleged details of Lambesis' plot to have his estranged wife killed, which he apparently first mentioned to a member of his gym.
As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis entered a "not guilty" plea to one count of solicitation of murder at his arraignment Thursday (May 9) in San Diego. The singer is on trial for an alleged murder-for-hire plot to kill his estranged wife Meggan. Bail at the arraignment was set for $3 million.
More details have emerged in the case of As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis, who was arrested earlier this week in a murder-for-hire plot in which he allegedly sought someone to kill his estranged wife Meggan. The couple's divorce papers offer some perspective on the situation and bring to light Meggan's concerns over Tim's recent behavior in relation to parenting their three adopted children from Ethiopia.
Yesterday (May 7), the metal world was shocked at the news that As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis had been arrested on suspicion of solicitation of murder charges for allegedly trying to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife. This evening (May 8), Lambesis' bandmates have issued a statement to their fans in regard to the arrest.
American metalcore titans As I Lay Dying have come incredibly close to the Death Match Hall of Fame in the past, even losing out to Suicide Silence after three straight wins. It takes four consecutive wins to gain entrance into the sacred Hall, and finally, As I Lay Dying have earned a spot in the Death Match Hall of Fame with 'No Lungs to Breathe.'
In a close battle of metalcore titans, As I Lay Dying narrowly beat out Killswitch Engage to secure a third straight Death Match win. If As I Lay Dying can secure just one more victory, the band will gain their first induction into the Death Match Hall of Fame, a feat that the band has come incredibly close to in the past, but had the distinction snatched away from them at the last second.
