New Austrian Death Machine Album To Be Released Despite Tim Lambesis Murder-For-Hire Case
The side project, which is a parody/tribute to action hero/ex-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, issued this statement on their Facebook page, which made no reference to Lambesis’ legal issues:
“Tim finished all of his parts back before he went on tour in Asia. He was just waiting for me to do my parts and put together the finishing touches on the mix of the album. I’m working on that starting this week now that I have the files. The CD should be done soon and then we’ll start planning to manufacture.”
The band funded the album via Indiegogo, offering incentives to fans to contribute to the recording of the record. One person paid $1500 for the privilege of recording some vocals on a track. ADM ended up raising over $78,000, exceeding their $63,000 goal.
After being charged in the murder-for-hire plot against his former wife, Lambesis was released on $2 million bail. He had to come up with $160,000 to secure that release. His next court date is June 26, and As I Lay Dying have cancelled all scheduled tour dates.
