Their singer pled guilty to murder-for-hire charges, but that’s not keeping them down. Member of As I Lay Dying have posted several clips of new music (a few examples below) and a unique logo online. The clips were posted to the Instagram pages of each member of the band outside of the now convicted criminal Tim Lambesis. It really was one of the more fascinating stories of 2013.: A blooming heavy metal singer with a diehard fan base accused of hiring a hit man to murder his estranged wife … he pleaded guilty in February. Though the remaining members of the band haven’t announced a new vocalist, you’ve gotta think it’s almost certain because Lambesis will be sentenced in May. A singer stuck in prison isn’t attractive for a band that needs to tour to pay back the record companies. It’s still unclear if the new music and new logo means a new band entirely, or if it will be recalibrated As I Lay Dying. We’ll keep you posted.
Stanley: Ace and Peter are anti-Semites
Can’t you feel the love? As we get closer to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, so do we get closer to the long-awaited Paul Stanley autobiography Face the Music: A Life Exposed. That drops on shelves today! In the book, people may find some startling accusations towards some former members of KISS, including Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. In Stanley’s book he says the two former members are anti-Semitic and makes the claims based of “years and years of interactions.” Stanley also says that Ace and Peter “tried to sabotage the band” because, as Stanley writes, the former band members though the band was being manipulated by “money-grubbing Jews.” This will make for a wonderful Rock Hall induction!
