AS I LAY DYING are currently holed up in the Blasting Room with renowned rock producer Bill Stevenson, who’s also the drummer for Descendents (and has played with Black Flag); and mixer Colin Richardson. The group–NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass)–are putting the finishing touches on their new album AWAKENED, due out September 25 on Metal Blade.

AWAKENED marks the follow-up the Decas EP (2011) which reached # 2 on the iTunes Rock Chart. The group’s last LP, 2010’s immensely successful The Powerless Rise debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #10. The Powerless Rise also reached #2 on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Hard Music Albums Chart.

AS I LAY DYING will join the fifth annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, the world’s largest touring heavy music festival, which kicks off June 30 in San Bernardino, CA. The main stage will be the strongest ever with the headlining slot occupied by multi-platinum Iowa legends Slipknot, with legendary metal acts Slayer, and Motorhead supporting. AS I LAY DYING will join the main stage in rotation, alongside The Devil Wears Prada and Asking Alexandria; see all dates below. During the Mayhem Festival, AS I LAY DYING will be offering a limited edition laminate which serves as the way to pre-order a copy of AWAKENED from the band directly at their merch booth onsite. Each laminate will have a unique code which fans can enter at www.metalblade.com/awakened for the CD to be shipped directly to their doorstep. Fans must redeem the code by November 1st, 2012 (available in the continental U.S. only). Redemptions received by September 12 will ship by September 18. The laminate will only be available for purchase at the band’s merch booth on the Mayhem Festival (purchase price includes the laminate, CD, and shipping).
