Following yesterday’s shocking news that As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has been arrested and charged with attempting to arrange the murder of his wife, the band have posted the following statement:

“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.
- Jordan, Nick, Phil, and Josh”

If found guilty, Tim could face up to 9 years in prison.
