Few of these comments even mention the fact that the whole reason As I Lay Dying broke up in the first place was because frontman Tim Lambesis committed a crime… which, if you need to be reminded, was TO TRY AND HAVE HIS WIFE MURDERED. He took real, concrete steps to pay a man to kill Meggan Lambesis, and he ultimately failed only as a result of his own ineptitude.
I’d been weighing if I even wanted to post about this reunion and give any publicity to this awfulness, but I wanted to publicly give my support to MetalSucks for taking this stand. Good for them. This is the right thing to do.
George Lynch was recently on Eddie Trunk’s radio show talking about how Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying has been released from prison and apparently has a “mega-record deal” and “book deal” all lined up. Alternative Press was able to confirm Lambesis’s release from jail:
When AP reached out to the California Department Of Corrections And Rehabilitation to find out if Lambesis was still interred in a California prison, a representative confirmed that he was discharged Dec. 17, 2016. He was discharged to the Division of Adult Parole Operations.

Graham Hartmann, writing at Loudwire, on how ex-As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has filed a $35 million lawsuit against a California medical team:
In a legal document filed by Lambesis’ representatives, Tim claimed “a nurse, doctor, and psychiatrist at the San Diego County Sheriff Department’s Vista Detention Facility and George F. Bailey Detention Facility acted with deliberate indifference to his serious medical needs in May and June 2014 by denying him medication which had been prescribed for him prior to his incarceration.” According to a separate document on CaseText, that medication is revealed to be anastrozole, which was prescribed to Lambesis to combat side effects of withdrawal from anabolic steroids.
Tim Lambesis remains incarcerated for attempting to hire a hitman to murder his estranged wife.
