The Grammy-nominated group AS I LAY DYING will premiere a new song “Cauterize” today (Friday, June 22) on Sirius Radio’s “Liquid Metal” channel at 5:00pm ET. This Sunday, the song will debut on www.AsILayDying.com for free starting at midnight PST for 24 hours only. It will then be available for download on iTunes and online everywhere the next day. AS I LAY DYING are currently holed up in the Blasting Room with renowned rock producer Bill Stevenson, who’s also the drummer for Descendents (and has played with Black Flag); and mixer Colin Richardson. The group–NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass)–are putting the finishing touches on their new album AWAKENED, due out September 25 on Metal Blade.

AWAKENED marks the follow-up the Decas EP (2011) which reached # 2 on the iTunes Rock Chart. The group’s last LP, 2010’s immensely successful The Powerless Rise debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #10. The Powerless Rise also reached #2 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Hard Music Albums Chart.

AS I LAY DYING will join the fifth annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, the world’s largest touring heavy music festival, which kicks off June 30 in San Bernardino, CA. The main stage will be the strongest ever with the headlining slot occupied by multi-platinum Iowa legends Slipknot, with legendary metal acts Slayer, and Motorhead supporting. AS I LAY DYING will join the main stage in rotation, alongside The Devil Wears Prada and Asking Alexandria; see all dates below.
