Wovenwar (Ex-As I Lay Dying, Etc.) Debut New Song “Censorship”


Wovenwar (Oh, Sleeper, ex-As I Lay Dying) have premiered their new track “Censorship” from their forthcoming sophomore effort. The band’s own Nick Hipa animated and directed the clip. It’s the first song to see a release from their new album, “Honor Is Dead“, out October 21st on Metal Blade. Hipa said of the title:

“It highlights a lot of experiences we’ve had where the trust within relationships or ventures has been broken for one reason or another. I think everyone has been on the wrong side of someone not keeping their word and you end up feeling totally burned. It’s something to be learned from, and in time you simply become more cautious. It’s a growing pain of real life, and it’s on us to decide how to live in a world that ends up being greyer than the black and white of our youth.”

As you’ll hear in the below single, the album has taken on a more aggressive direction than the band’s debut. Hipa said of that:

“Part of it was just our response to the previous year of our lives. Our first response to most negative experiences is usually looking at the bright side or finding silver linings. Generally most of us feel like that’s a decent way to approach things.

But, without the catharsis of ‘letting it out’, there is no balance, and that sort of positivity can end up feeling a bit contrived, so half of it is that we simply needed to be angrier. The other half is that we did miss having those heavier songs that are so enjoyable to play live, and we felt our performances could be more enjoyable if we had some more aggressive bangers.”
