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.

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
