"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."

I like how he's apologizing for it like he made unwanted sexual advances against fans or something. Like, dude... you tried to hire somebody to murder the mother of your children. You're a fucking donglord.

Everyone who was into that band when they were relevant either got into better metal, got into real hardcore or stopped caring at this point.

my old band did some shows with As I lay Dying a few years before the 'tried to have my wife killed' thing.

As it was the last show of tour, one of our crew replaced their onstage setlists 2 mins before they went on with very hardcore gay porn, as a end of tour prank.

The whole band other than Tim found it funny. Tim was very very mad. Luckily didnt put a hit on any of us though.

Thats all Ive got.

Jamey Jasta tweeted earlier today wondering aloud about why the members are continuing the band with him, and then he kinda walked it back and wants to hash it out on his podcast (with everyone except Tim).

I hate so much how Metal Sucks think "metal should be held to a higher standard", while lumping ALID within "metal". Both are completely false. Also considering that site supports all kinda of misogynistic slam bands, and Kim Kelly who writes for them was Anal Cunts publicist. What they have to say means garbage.

Who cares, Tim did his time. What else can he do. The dude spent most of us life doing nothing else but playing music ( and of course as many who will quote this will say trying to kill his wife ) . I think the whole metalsucks post is silly, it's so easy to find what's hypocritical about it.

So, listen to this 2018 singy metalcore and enjoy it for what it is. If you don't approve or like the song never support him. Regardless, i don't care it's your decision after all <3

Unreal that people are actually talking about "backing" this band with a straight face. This guy tried to kill the mother of his children, served time and now he's playing it off like it's no big deal in an extremely transparent attempt to cash in on reviving this god awful band.

It's no wonder so many shitty people gravitate toward starting punk/hardcore/metal bands, because they know herbs will overlook the fact that they're shit humans just as long as "their early stuff's hella good."

By the way, this band was ripped to shreds the first time around, so no matter what you're revisionist history spin is, don't let it distract from the fact that they've always been a joke except to guys who rationalize getting Monroe piercings and spots dyed into their flat ironed hair.
