Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce another event has been set up in celebration of the record label’s 30 Anniversary, which included a packed showcase at this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX, the Metal Blade Scion A/V Club showcase in Pomona, CA on 9/15, and the recently announced Los Angeles Armored Saint show at the House of Blues on 11/30. For this next event Metal Blade has teamed up with Metal Wreckage and is moving things to the east coast. Taking place Tuesday Sept. 25 at Santo’s Party House in New York City, this event is offering fans the chance to attend a private CD Release show for AS I LAY DYING, whose new album AWAKENED drops the same day and marks the band’s first show since their run on this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Supporting the San Diego, CA metal heavyweights is Detroit, MI’s very own blue-collar thrash metallers, BATTLECROSS, who recently wrapped up a very successful run on this summer’s Trespass America tour featuring Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, and more.
