Guitarist Nick Hipa quit As I Lay Dying in August "because the story and meaning we built our reunion upon decayed considerably over time." Hipa is now back with a crushing new band called Mire, and you can check out their debut single "Refined" above.
"Very stoked to share some new music from my band Mire," said Hipa. "Ryan, Benton, and I started this journey together in 2017, with the simple desire to create stylistically unrestrained music based on mutual admiration for riff based songwriting.
"Our first single 'Refined' is out now. It's a decently pummeling tune that represents just one facet of what we've created together. I really hope you dig it, and look forward to sharing more tunes in the near future."
