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!”

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
