You Can Still Be a Rock Star After Trying To Kill Your Wife: As I Lay Dying Is Coming To San Antonio


  • Facebook, Tim Lambesis
Less than two years after their singer was released from prison, As I Lay Dying is headed to San Antonio.

Frontman Tim Lambesis was arrested in 2013 for attempting to hire a hitman to kill his estranged wife.

What’s even more dramatic about it all is that they came up in the whole “Christian” metalcore glory days, alongside bands like Norma Jean and Underoath.

Not very Christiany if you ask us.

Anyway, in February 2014, the singer pled guilty to the charge and was sentenced to six years in prison.

He was released December 17, 2016.

Looks like everyone’s all “forgive and forget” ‘cause the band is back together with new music and headed to the Alamo City Music Hall on Monday, November 5.
