As I Lay Dying release official statement about the band and its future

Well known metalcore band, As I Lay Dying, released an official statement from their website,, about the band, a little bit about the band's past, and the band's future. This statement was announced due to recent events with the band's former vocalist, Tim Lambesis. I don't have to really go into what Tim did or what he's up to now, as it's common knowledge among the metal community. Here is the statement,

Edit: Well, apparently, Tim wrote the whole statement on AILD's website and staged the whole thing. The band members were unaware of the statement and the band had this to say, from Nick Hipa's Facebook page,

"Good day friends,  This morning an update was posted over at on the current happenings and individual futures of all the bands' members. For Jordan, Josh, Nick, Phil, management, and record label, this was an interesting first time read as all parties were oblivious to its construction, intent, and release.  

Though Tim is the only one with access to the As I Lay Dying site, the rest of us have been releasing content through our personal social media accounts to reveal that we are carrying on in a new band. Our truest intentions were to make this unveiling interesting and exciting for anyone who has supported us over the past year. With information so instantaneous and disposable these days, we had hoped to show you how things were coming together rather than simply tell you.  

We never want to capture attention dramatically, which is precisely why we've been off the radar for close to a year. Though the third-person statement released earlier compromises a lot of how we had hoped to unroll things, we remain positive in our outlooks and look forward to sharing new music soon.  

With love and gratitude,  Jordan, Josh, Phil, Nick"

So... basically, Tim was attempting to screw over AILD. I wonder how this will play out in the future.
