It’s time to be awakened!

The Grammy-nominated rock group AS I LAY DYING will release their sixth album, Awakened, September 21/24 on Metal Blade. Pre-orders are available today, August 20, via: http://www.metalblade.com/asilaydying/.

After wrapping a successful run as a main stage act on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival with Slipknot, Slayer and more, the group will headline a special album release show – more details coming soon! On October 15, they’ll launch a European tour with Trivium, Caliban and Upon A Burning Body before returning to the U.S. in November for a nationwide tour.

AS I LAY DYING just completed a video for the new single A Greater Foundation. The rock group teamed with director Drew Russ (A Day To Remember, Falling In Reverse) and producer Robby Starbuck for the performance-based clip which was shot on location in Los Angeles. “We were all impressed with Drew’s ability to capture the intensity of live band performances in his videos, and ‘A Greater Foundation’ is no exception, explains bassist JOSH GILBERT. ” Drew’s technique, along with the all-day participation of some of our diehard fans in Los Angeles, definitely accentuated the energy of the song and makes for an exciting and dynamic video. We can’t wait to unveil it!”

For Awakened, the San Diego-based band–NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass)–holed up in the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO with renowned rock producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents) and mixer Colin Richardson. Awakened, marks the follow-up to the Decas EP (2011) which reached # 2 on the iTunes Rock Chart.
