BAND RECEIVES SAN DIEGO MUSIC AWARD NOMINATION FOR "BEST HARD ROCK ALBUM" -CEREMONY TO TAKE PLACE SEPTEMBER 12

Grammy®-nominated metal group AS I LAY DYING has recently announced their fall U.S. tour for North America and Europe. The group will kick off the tour September 14 in El Paso, TX in support of their latest release THE POWERLESS RISE (Metal Blade) which debuted this spring on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #10. The tour—with support acts All That Remains, Unearth, and Carnifex--will take AS I LAY DYING down south and throughout the northeast, before making its way west through Canada and wrapping up October 11 in Chico, CA. AS I LAY DYING will then end 2010 with shows throughout Europe (see below for full tour dates).

"This is one of the best tour line-ups we've ever been a part of as a headliner," explains lead vocalist TIM LAMBESIS. "I'm proud of the mark that all of our bands have made on the modern metal scene and we're finally touring together in one package. I especially can't wait to spend time with our good friends in Unearth since they are long time friends, label mates, and great personalities that never leave a dull moment!"

AS I LAY DYING--NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass)--just completed the "Cool Tour" with Underoath, Between the Buried and Me, Blessthefall, The Acacia Strain, Architects, Cancer Bats, and War of Ages on August 1. In a live review from the 7/31 Los Angeles date, Louie Bones of BigWheelMagazine.com said, "As I Lay Dying hit the stage to an intro song that reminded me of an epic war scene from a movie, it set the tone for what was to come. The 4000 maximum capacity crowd howled in excitement as the 5 members of As I Lay Dying broke into the set opener '94 Hours.' The bone shattering bass drum was felt by all across the floor and up into the Palladium's balconies. It was similar to an earthquake set to musical rhythm and growled along to…Fans had waited all day for this and they were not let down by any means as As I Lay Dying tore through the Palladium relentlessly late into the night."

AS I LAY DYING recently performed live for rabid fans as part of the Maloof Money Cup presented by Vans.
