Cover art for AS I LAY DYING’s The Powerless Rise
We’ve joined forces with the Grammy®-nominated metal group AS I LAY DYING, whose last four albums count combined U.S. sales in excess of 1.3 million copies. Building on this momentum, they will release their fifth full-length album THE POWERLESS RISE May 11 via Metal Blade Records. AS I LAY DYING is currently putting the finishing touches on THE POWERLESS RISE in San Diego with producer Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage.
THE POWERLESS RISE marks the follow up to their critically acclaimed fourth album An Ocean Between Us (Metal Blade) which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200–the highest debut on the rock chart that week–and earned the group a Grammy® nomination for “Best Metal Performance” alongside metal heavyweights Slayer and King Diamond.
