As I Lay Dying figurehead Tim Lambesis unveiled his new music project called Born Through Fire this week. He shared the first two official songs from the band, “Bone by Bone” and the intro piece “Reintroduction.”

Both tunes emerged on Friday (Nov. 12) after Lambesis and Born Through Fire began teasing the dual release in the preceding days. A music video that accompanies “Bone by Bone” uses “Reintroduction” as a prelude, perhaps evincing the track order of an imminent album. However, Born Through Fire have yet to announce a full-length effort.

In addition to the As I Lay Dying vocalist, Born Through Fire includes Wolves at the Gate guitarist Joey Alarcon, according to Blabbermouth. Drummer Luke Holland (formerly of The Word Alive) also contributed to the new songs, per ThePRP.

Lambesis said on social media, “The best description of the material that I’ve heard from a close friend who has heard it is [it’s] cinematic, heavy and modern, but it still has classic metal throwback elements at the same time.”

Earlier this year, Lambesis was sued by a woman allegedly injured in a December 2020 bonfire accident that left the musician with burns over 25 percent of his body after he spilled flammable liquid on himself while attempting to start a fire.

In 2013, Lambesis was arrested for attempting to hire a hitman to murder his estranged wife. He was imprisoned and released on parole in 2016, later issuing an apology to his family. Since then, the vocalist has pursued a degree in social work, trained as an addiction counselor and spent time tutoring inmates.

While in prison, other As I Lay Dying members formed Wovenwar with Oh, Sleeper’s Shane Blay. As I Lay Dying returned in 2017, issuing the album Shaped by Fire in 2019. Guitarist Nick Hipa later left the band. Lambesis started Born Through Fire late last year, giving an update on the project in March.
