After a few weeks of teasing us, we finally know what the members of As I Lay Dying who have not been convicted of solicitation of murder are up to.
Ten days ago, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrasso, Jordan Mancino and Josh Gilbert all posted brief snippets of new music and then again last week. This led to an odd "band statement" from As I Lay Dying, which we eventually learned was written Tim Lambesis in the third person.
Today, the band are ready to officially announce what they've been working on and the project is called Wovenwar.
Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce that JORDAN MANCINO (drums), NICK HIPA (guitar), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass) of San Diego, California based metal act As I Lay Dying, have teamed up with vocalist SHANE BLAY (previously lead guitar/clean vocals in Oh, Sleeper) to create the new band WOVENWAR. Over approximately the last year, the band completed work on new material recorded with producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag) with mixing duties currently being handled by Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Trivium).
I'm not too familiar with vocalist Shane Blay but this teaser the band posted has me intrigued for hearing more new material:
The band promise to unleash a full track next Monday. Are you pumped for Wovenwar?
