AS I LAY DYING 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.
The track, which features the return of the band’s classic lineup — Tim Lambesis on lead vocals, Jordan Mancino on drums, Phil Sgrosso on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Nick Hipa on lead guitar and backing vocals, and Josh Gilbert on bass and clean vocals — is now available on all streaming services.
AS I LAY DYING will play its first comeback show on June 16 at Soma Sidestage in San Diego, California.
Last Friday, the band shared a teaser of what appears to be a new video single, with some strong indications that they will return with an unchanged lineup. You can check it out in the embedded player below.
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.
