Former As I Lay Dying Members Announce New Project Wovenwar

After weeks of cryptic Instagram teasers and some drama involving an “official statement” on the future of the band that was later revealed to be written and posted by Tim Lambesis without the rest of the band’s knowledge, the group of musicians formerly known as As I Lay Dying (Jordan Mancino, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert) have officially announced their new project will be called Wovenwar.

Lambesis spilled the beans in his message, but the announcement confirms Shane Blay (Oh, Sleeper) will be the band’s lead vocalist. We’re now one week away from hearing the band’s …

As I Lay Dying Members Suggest Tim Lambesis Posted Band Update Without Their Knowledge

When I read the statement updating the future of As I Lay Dying that was posted on the band’s official site this morning, I knew something smelled fishy. Not only was the statement too meandering and poorly written to have come through the band’s management or PR team, but it strangely kept referring to the band as “we” while taking a otherwise third-person approach. It was also missing the type of signature we typically see at the bottom of such statements.

Whoever wrote the statement refused to acknowledge anyone other than Lambesis and drummer Jordan Mancino as “official” members of …

As I Lay Dying Issue Statement Addressing Tim Lambesis, Future Of Band

There’s been a lot of question as to the future of As I Lay Dying lately. Since their previous frontman Tim Lambesis pled guilty to a felony murder solicitation charge back in February, the group’s remaining members have cleared their upcoming tour schedule indefinitely, leaving many to speculate that the end may be near.

However, it seems that this is not the case—at least not presently. Earlier this afternoon, the four-piece posted a lengthy message to fans addressing Lambesis’ current situation and the future of the band. Check it out in full after the break.

As uplifting as this statement …

As I Lay Dying Members Continue Teasing New Music

This is becoming a regular part of my daily routine. The four remaining members of As I Lay Dying who aren’t facing a nine-year prison sentence have once again taken to Instagram to post their third series of cryptic videos teasing new music, and perhaps an entirely new project.

Yesterday’s videos implied the band would distance themselves from the As I Lay Dying moniker by teasing a new band logo, suggesting the band’s new name would start with a W (or maybe include two of them?). The first series of teasers seemed to signal bassist/vocalist Josh Gilbert would be taking …

It has been a while since we caught up with the tale of As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis‘ arrest for plotting to have his wife murdered, and in that time few new developments have arisen. Tim was due in court in late October, but a problem with scheduling lead to yet another delay. Lambgoat has learned another court date for an “arraignment on information” hearing has been set for November 13. Here’s how Vista criminal defense attorney Vincent Ross explains this type of arraingment:

A preliminary hearing date of July 10 has been set for Lambesis on charges he attempted to solicit a hitman to murder his estranged wife.
