A few weeks back, As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis posted on social media that he had burned 25% of his body in a crazy accident involving gasoline and a bonfire. It seems the entire gas cap fell off while Tim was trying to use a little from the trickle tip to get said bonfire started.
Following his surgery to help remove the remaining dead skin that they were unable to scrub off during dressing changes, Tim stated that the recovery from his accident had been “the most painful experience” of his life. “I’m told I will eventually have a full recovery,” Lambesis noted. “I have to remember that on the tough days and be grateful I have the chance to be back to doing what I love again soon, because that is not the case for everyone in the burn center.”
Lambesis recently posted a new recovery update via an Instagram clip marking the 3 weeks and 1 day since the freak accident took place. He noted that not only did his face not get burned, but his ‘man parts’ were also spared. He did however lose 20 pounds from being stuck in bed for three weeks, and he has ‘shakes’ from his nerves reconnecting. See Tim’s full message below.
In recent news, As I Lay Dying were forced to cancel their 2021 U.S. tour with Whitechapel and Shadow of Intent due to the ongoing global pandemic. AILD’s newest album, ‘Shaped by Fire,’ is out via Nuclear Blast Records.
