Lagu baru yang akan segera rilis dari As I Lay Dying (AILD) sudah siap untuk menghapus memori kelam atas apa yang telah terjadi pada Tim Lambesis. Unggahan berdurasi 45 detik untuk tinjauan sekilas lagu baru tersebut dalam sajian video klip sebagai penanda kembalinya AILD langsung bersambut pro dan kontra dari khalayak. lagu baru as i lay dying

Apa yang telah terjadi di masa lalu sepertinya sudah melekat di beberapa benak kepala dan hati sebagian orang, namun tak sedikit yang kemudian menerima penjelasan dari Tim, takala dirinya keluar dari masa hukumannya di penjara pada awal tahun 2017. Tim melayangkan sebuah surat terbuka berisi permohonan maaf kepada semua pihak, termasuk mantan istrinya, para fans, rekan AILD dan semua pihak yang terkait dengan Tim maupun AILD.

Pada intinya ia pun mengerti dan menerima bila banyak pihak belum memaafkannya. Tim tak akan memaksa siapapun untuk percaya kembali kepadanya. Namun dengan “perbuatan” Tim akan menunjukkan betapa dirinya sangat menyesal dan ingin menjalani episode baru setelah terjatuh sangat dalam ke jurang yang ia pilih sendiri.

Karena Musik adalah salah satu mediator utama Tim, bersama As I Lay Dying Ia pun kembali berkarya. Belum ada yang tau judulnya apa, siapa saja personil As I Lay Dying yang sekarang dan apa yang terkandung di dalam lagunya. Di bawah kita bisa berandai-andai seperti apa musiknya nanti, unggahan video berdurasi 45 detik tanpa menampilkan wajah personil dan terhenti ketika mikrofon diambil. Bagi yang ingin membaca surat terbuka dari Tim, kami lampirkan juga pada spoiler di  bawah.

Surat Terbuka Tim

Words cannot begin to express how deeply sorry I am for the hurt that I have caused. There is no defense for what I did, and I look back on the person I became with as much disdain as many of you likely do.

First, I apologize to my former wife and remarkable children for my appalling actions. There’s not a single day that goes by where I don’t wish I could undo the damage I caused, and out of respect for their wishes I will not discuss anything else about them (now or in the future). I also ask anyone reading this to promote healing for them by respecting their privacy and defending them from any negativity or anger which should be directed towards me. I was the sole offender and the only one to blame for everything that happened.

To my family, I apologize for the trauma you faced and may still feel. This is an ongoing sentence many of you serve because of me. I am so sorry to my friends who were betrayed by everything I hid from them and all the hardships I caused people who used to work with me. Band mates, road crew, managers, attorneys, agents, label people, and more all had to suffer through many unexpected changes because of my actions. While they were dealing with the aftermath of my arrest, I responded toward many of them with bitterness that I should have directed toward myself. I know that I can’t undo the animosity I brought their way, but I hope to mend what I can now as time goes on.

To the people who looked up to me as an artist, I let you down in so many ways. I tried to show my best side to the public, while feeding an ugly growing monster behind closed doors. I wrote lyrics about the person I wanted to be rather than the person that I was. I was living a life that lacked empathy and viewed everything through a self-motivated lens.

I cannot say for certain what life looks like going forward as so much is different now and I’m still learning. Music always has and always will be a part of me, and has helped me get through the darkest parts of my journey. However, this apology is not a part of promoting anything. Rumors circulate, and that’s something I’ve learned to accept, but this apology is just that, an apology to everyone around me.

I’ve remained silent to the public since expressing remorse at my sentencing because time seemed like the best way to promote healing. Today marks the first opportunity to freely apologize without any motivation to gain favor from the courts, as I have now completed the entirety of my legal sentence (including the completion of all parole/probation requirements). Let it be clear that no amount of time served can right my wrongs. I do not feel deserving of a second chance and am not asking for anyone’s trust. The way many people feel about me makes sense, and only time will tell if my future actions line up with my remorse, something I pray for every day. In the last five years, the ripple effect of all my actions has extended further than a written statement can address. Thus, I will continue to apologize in both words and actions moving forward.

Thank you for reading,

Tim
