The classic lineup of California metallers AS I LAY DYING played its first first comeback show last night (Saturday, June 16) at Soma Sidestage in San Diego, California. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
The $10 tickets to AS I LAY DYING‘s first live appearance since 2013 at the 300-capacity Soma Sidestage reportedly sold out in four minutes. It was said to be the band’s decision to play on a smaller stage rather than the 2,000-capacity mainstage.
Earlier this month, band have unveiled “My Own Grave” as their first single in six years, as well as their first new music since frontman Tim Lambesis was released from jail.
In May 2014, AS I LAY DYING singer Tim Lambesis was sentenced to six years in jail after pleading guilty to paying a San Diego police officer posing as a hit man $1,000 to kill his wife. Approximately two and a half years later — on December 17, 2016 — he was discharged from a California detention facility and was transferred to the Division of Adult Parole Operations.
