Nuclear Blast Records is proud to welcome the worldwide signing of As I Lay Dying. The band’s seventh album, Shaped By Fire, will be released on September 20th via Nuclear Blast.
“We are tremendously grateful to have found positive resolve from the worst moments of our history. The previous chapter of our journey was one of pervasive hurt and pain. Subsequent years found us on varied paths—all of which slowly led towards resolutions of growth, healing, and reconciliation. As I Lay Dying’s collective purpose is to share a message of hope for everyone through the empowering outlet of music, and we are humbled by the overwhelming support we have received from family, friends, and fans so far. We are honoured to join forces with Nuclear Blast Worldwide in releasing our new album Shaped By Fire. Their legacy and contribution to the heavy music scene is undeniably incredible and we are proud to call their label home. We are thankful for their support and enthusiasm and together we look forward to sharing the best AILD record yet!
In conjunction with our new album announcement, we are excited to share a music video for the title track “Shaped by Fire.” While lyrically akin to the other Shaped By Fire single releases “My Own Grave” and “Redefined”, we explored some different musical territory to incorporate within our established sound. We’d like to thank our director Mathis Arnell, all of the crew, and actors that contributed to making this video with us under the very hot conditions! We look forward to seeing our fans out on the road as we embark on the Latin American, European, and US tours before closing the book on 2019.”
Today, the band has also released their latest single and title track, “Shaped By Fire.”
Shaped By Fire was produced by the band and was mixed by Joseph McQueen at Sparrow Sound in Los Angeles, CA while mastering was completed by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in Nashville, TN. The only exception was for the track “My Own Grave” which was produced by the band, co-produced by Drew Fulk and mixed by Adam “Nolly” Getgood. The artwork was created by Corey Meyers.
Shaped By Fire is available for pre-order now in a wide range of formats. These can be viewed and chosen on the following link.
