As I Lay Dying have just announced that they will be releasing their next album, titled ‘Awakened,’ on Sept. 25. The Grammy-nominated act premiered the first song off the record, ‘Cauterize’ earlier today on SiriusXM’s ‘Liquid Metal’ radio show, but don’t worry, you will still be able to get your metalcore fix.
This coming Sunday (June 24), As I Lay Dying will be offering ‘Cauterize’ as a free download from their official website starting at midnight PT for 24 hours only. It will then be made available on iTunes and other internet sources on Monday, June 25.
As I Lay Dying are still in the recording process for ‘Awakened,’ which is being constructed at the Blasting Room with legendary producer Bill Stevenson, who is also the drummer for hardcore punk pioneers the Descendents.
During the band’s run on this year’s Mayhem Festival, As I Lay Dying will be selling limited edition laminates, which serve as a way to pre-order a copy of ‘Awakened,’ from the band themselves at their merch booth. Each laminate will have a unique code which fans can enter at www.metalblade.com/awakened.
The 2012 Mayhem Fest will be hitting North America from June 30-Aug. 5 and will feature bands such as Slipknot, Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax and many more.
