As I Lay Dying’s New Album “Shaped By Fire” Set For September Release, Video For Title Track Debuts


0

Following weeks of rumors, As I Lay Dying have officially announced their signing with Nuclear Blast and will release their new album “Shaped By Fire” through the label on September 20th. The album is of course the band’s first since their frontman Tim Lambesis went to prison after having attempted to hire an undercover cop posing as a hitman to kill his previous wife Meggan back in 2013. He was paroled in 2016.

Commenting of the new album and label deal, the band issued the following statement:

“We are tremendously grateful to have found positive resolve from the worst moments of our history. The previous chapter of our journey was one of pervasive hurt and pain. Subsequent years found us on varied paths—all of which slowly led towards resolutions of growth, healing, and reconciliation. As I Lay Dying‘s collective purpose is to share a message of hope for everyone through the empowering outlet of music, and we are humbled by the overwhelming support we have received from family, friends, and fans so far.

We are honored to join forces with Nuclear Blast Worldwide in releasing our new album ‘Shaped By Fire‘. Their legacy and contribution to the heavy music scene is undeniably incredible and we are proud to call their label home. We are thankful for their support and enthusiasm and together we look forward to sharing the best AILD record yet!

In conjunction with our new album announcement, we are excited to share a music video for the title track ‘Shaped By Fire.’ While lyrically akin to the other ‘Shaped By Fire‘ single releases ‘My Own Grave‘ and ‘Redefined‘, we explored some different musical territory to incorporate within our established sound. We’d like to thank our director Mathis Arnell, all of the crew, and actors that contributed to making this video with us under the very hot conditions!

We look forward to seeing our fans out on the road as we embark on the Latin American, European, and US tours before closing the book on 2019.”

The aforementioned music video for the title track can be found below. Various formats are planned for the album’s release, including:
