As I Lay Dying Demoing New Material With Miss May I’s Ryan Neff


The eighth studio album from San Diego, CA metalcore outfit As I Lay Dying continues to gestate, with more writing & demoing sessions planned for this week. Interestingly, the band’s frontman Tim Lambesis has confirmed that their latest touring bassist/vocalist Ryan Neff (of Miss May I) has been involved with the creative input for the record.

Neff‘s tenure in the band began this past spring, when he was recruited to fill the void left by Josh Gilbert. The pandemic years have seen As I Lay Dying undergo significant lineup changes, with guitarist/vocalist Nick Hipa and drummer Jordan Mancino also exiting the group. Unearth guitarist Ken Susi and drummer Nick Pierce (ex-Unearth) were brought on as their respective replacements.

It is unclear if they remain onboard in a touring capacity or are also contributing to the band’s new material.
