Last night we learned the shocking news that As I Lay Dying front man, Tim Lambesis, was arrested in a murder-for-hire plot against his estranged wife. This story still absolutely blows my mind, but it’s no joke at all. He could be facing up to nine years in prison if found guilty. Tim will be arraigned tomorrow and we may know more by then, but only time will tell when all of the facts come to surface.

We’ve been waiting for word from his fellow band mates on the arrest and they have finally released the following statement to their fans: “To our fans, As we post this, the legal process is taking its course and we have no more information than you do. There are many unanswered questions, and the situation will become clearer in the coming days and weeks. We’ll keep you informed as best we can. Our thoughts right now are with Tim, his family, and with everyone else affected by this terrible situation — and with our fans, whom we love and draw strength from. Thank you for understanding, and as always, for your support of As I Lay Dying.

More updates coming tomorrow. I truly hope this is a massive mistake.
