As I Lay Dying Not Dead Yet

Take a long look. It may be the last time you see Tim Lambesis in something other than county orange.

Busy week for As I Lay Dying.

Tim Lambesis managed to find enough time between defending himself from attempted murder charges to post a message on the official As I Lay Dying website .

Meanwhile, the other guys in the band who didn't allegedly order a hit on their wives have been posting clips of new songs with a new lead singer on teh Instagrams:

The band also posted a response to Tim's post via Facebook .

While Lambesis certainly has a claim to the As I Lay Dying brand, so do the other fellas. Personally, I'd ditch the brand and move on with a new baggage free name, but I can see the advantage of working under an established brand too.

It's not like Coca-Cola would change their name if their CEO turned out to be the sort of dude who would allegedly order a hit on his wife, ya know.

*In addition to feeling really, really, really bad for Lambesis' kids and hoping that the rest of the guys in the band do something for them, "Scary" Terry Stevens is a radio host for Midwest Communications. You can Book Face with him here .
