As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa officially announced his departure from the group last month. Band’s vocalist Tim Lambesis has now officially commented Hipa’s departure from the band and you can read his statement below:
“Being able to have different opinions or priorities but to still deeply care for another person’s wellbeing is something that’s often lost in our current climate. I just want to say that I truly wish Nick Hipa the best in his next chapter of life, and I’m thankful he wishes me/AILD the same.
I’ve wanted to focus on music for past few years because it takes me back to why I started AILD in the first place 20 years ago. I look forward to writing new music and seeing many of you on tour again soon!”– Tim Lambesis
