As I Lay Dying Members Form New Band


The remaining members of As I Lay Dying, Jordan Mancino, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert, had revealed last week, that the post that had been released on their official website was not them letting fans know what was to come of the band in the future following frontman Tim Lambesis’ legal issues. 

Before the lengthy message had been posted on the site, the band had released several snippets of music on each of their Instagram page which left fans baffled as to what it meant. Today, it was confirmed that the remaining members would be moving forward to form a new band named, Wovenwar. 

Former lead guitar and singer of Oh, Sleeper Shane Blay has also been confirmed to be part of the band, but in a twist that some might not have seen, Wovenwar have already completed their debut full-length album. The record, which will be their self-titled, will be released through Metal Blade Records sometime during the late Summer. 

The lead single from the album has been revealed to be a track titled “All Rise” and will make its own debut next Monday, April 21. 

As I Lay Dying to Resume Without Tim Lambesis

It’s been almost a year since As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis was arrested in an attempt to murder his wife. Since the arrest, the main question that has risen was whether or not the remaining members of the band would call it a day or continue on without the frontman.

The question was finally answered this weekend when the remaining four members of the band, Nick Hippa, Jordan Mancino, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert, took to their individual Instagram pages to upload short video all featuring snippets of music on it. It is wise to assume that this was the answer that fans of the California band have been hoping for; the band will march on without Lambesis.

From the looks and sound of the new clips, bassist/backing vocalist Josh Gilbert as been promoted to lead vocals for the group. Th only issue with the video that have been released is the back and forth of whether or not this “new” group will still be operating under the As I Lay Dying name or if this means they will be going in another direction with a different name and sound.

In Hippa’s clip, there is simple action of ripping off the titles of several As I Lay Dying track meaning that they could be distancing themselves from the band.

But then there’s guitarist Phil Sgrosso’s clip which features a riff that sound very much like something that would be expected from one of their songs.

And then there comes another twist featuring Jordan Mancino whose clip features him playing the drums for a track that sounds nothing like the band’s sound.

So far, the only that can be certain is the fact that Gilbert has been moved up to lead vocals. The confirmation can be found in his clip which features him recording vocals in the recording studio.

No statements has been given on whether or not they will be keeping the name or changing it. All of the band’s social media accounts are still dormant which can mean they are still working out the final details before the big reveal, if there is one.
