Grammy®-nominated metal group AS I LAY DYING will build on their 1,000,000-plus album sales when they release their fifth full-length album THE POWERLESS RISE May 11 via Metal Blade Records. Fans will get a taste of the new album–which is being produced by Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage– when the San Diego-based group launches a headlining U.S. tour April 29 in Tucson, AZ.  The trek, wrapping May 22 in Las Vegas, will feature support acts Demon Hunter, blessthefall and War of Ages. Tickets are on-sale today; visit www.myspace.com/asilaydying for direct links to purchase.

“Now that we’re almost done with the new album, we can’t wait to get on the road and start playing the new songs for our fans in the U.S.,” explains lead vocalist TIM LAMBESIS. “Along with a new album comes a fresh excitement, and I can honestly say that I’m as passionate about music now as I was when this band first started. The tour lineup is solid and marks our first time getting to tour with our friends in Demon Hunter. Get there early to see the whole thing!”

AS I LAY DYING–NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass)–have solidly built their fan base by playing thousands of shows with: Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Rob Zombie, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold, Mastodon, Atreyu, Killswitch Engage, Every Time I Die, Deftones and In Flames, to name a few. The group has performed on the main stage of most of the major rock festivals around the world including the Vans Warped Tour, Ozzfest, Sounds of the Underground, Bamboozle, Taste of Chaos, Cornerstone, Wacken and the Download Festival.

Employed to Serve

Forward Under a Dying Sun

Most of these days, the sun rises and sets on a world that feels like it's dying. Across the pond, where Employed to Serve calls home, they're learning how to support their latest record a year into its release. HM contributor Andrew Voigt recently sat down with Justine Jones to learn more about the band, marrying your bandmates, and their outside shot at touring with Rammstein.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
