Starting today, fans have options for THE POWERLESS RISE as a variety of special pre-order packages are now available, including THE POWERLESS RISE CD plus an autographed booklet and a t-shirt or the deluxe fan box which allows fans to receive the album now (physical CD with autographed booklet). In addition, the digital pre-order is now available on iTunes. To check out all of the new offerings, visit: www.thepowerlessrise.com.
THE POWERLESS RISE marks the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed fourth album An Ocean Between Us (Metal Blade) which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Rock Chart, earning the group a Grammy® nomination for “Best Metal Performance” alongside metal heavyweights Slayer and King Diamond. For the new album, the group re-teamed with producer Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage and mixer Colin Richardson who they’d previously worked with on An Ocean Between Us.
Fans will get a taste of the new album when the San Diego-based group–whose last four albums have sold more than 1.3 million copies–performs live next week on the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which tapes Thursday, April 8 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and will air May 22 on Vh1 Classic. AS I LAY DYING will appear alongside Slash, Dave Grohl, Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Zombie, Fear Factory, The Devil Wears Prada, and Brian Posehn’s all-star band featuring Scott Ian, Brendon Small, John Tempesta and Joey Vera plus Zakk Wylde (in a special performance) to name a few.
