As I Lay Dying Premiere “Burden” Music Video, Announce European Tour (Updated)


San Diego, CA melodic metalcore outfit As I Lay Dying are back with the first taste of music from their latest roster. Below you can hear the track “Burden“. That song finds the band’s mainstays in vocalist Tim Lambesis and guitarist/vocalist Phil Sgrosso united in the studio with ex-Unearth members Ken Susi (guitars) and Nick Pierce (drums), along with current bassist/vocalist Ryan Neff (of Miss May I).

Burden” is set to appear on the band’s forthcoming eighth studio album, which they wrapped up work on last year. Notably, the band have aligned with Napalm Records for the release of this outing. More details for which are pending.

Sgrosso said of the track and its below Tom Flynn-directed music video:

“It’s a pretty special moment for us to finally share some new music! ‘Burden‘ was originally inspired by a guitar melody I wrote years ago on an old demo, thinking that it was lost for good in the demo abyss. It wasn’t until Tim dug it up and was inspired to shape a new song idea for it. The collaboration process with our co-producer Hiram Hernandez and new members brought new life to not only the song but the band as a whole, as we faced this new creative chapter together.

Musically, we feel that ‘Burden‘ represents a familiar part of our melodic history combined with a modern sense of energy and aggression. We really pushed ourselves to expand our musical capabilities in every department. We look forward to the addition of ‘Burden‘ into our live show as well as introducing more music we’ve been working hard on over the past few years. Stay tuned.”

“It was a phenomenal experience working with Tom Flynn on the video for ‘Burden‘. We were fans of his creative approach to modern music videos and could sense his high level of enthusiasm to deliver a video that would match the intensity of the song. He completely knocked it out of the park capturing the band performance and shaping a captivating concept which we will expand further into the release of our second single release…”
