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.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then.
