On August 30, Jason Saulnier of the MusicLegends.ca web site conducted an interview with guitarist Phil Sgrosso of San Diego metallers AS I LAY DYING. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
AS I LAY DYING‘s sixth album, “Awakened”, will be released on September 25 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was produced by Bill Stevenson, who has played drums for both the DESCENDENTS and BLACK FLAG and is one of the most highly renowned producers in rock. His production credits include work on records by RISE AGAINST, NOFX, PROPAGANDHI, THE CASUALTIES, ANTI-FLAG and many more. The album was mixed by Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT).
The cover artwork for “Awakened” was created by Metastazis with Tiffanie Uldry and can be seen below.
AS I LAY DYING‘s video for the song “A Greater Foundation” can be seen below. The performance-based clip was filmed in Los Angeles with director Drew Russ (A DAY TO REMEMBER, FALLING IN REVERSE) and producer Robby Starbuck.
“We were all impressed with Drew‘s ability to capture the intensity of live band performances in his videos, and ‘A Greater Foundation’ is no exception,” explained AS I LAY DYING bassist Josh Gilbert. “Drew‘s technique, along with the all-day participation of some of our diehard fans in Los Angeles, definitely accentuated the energy of the song and makes for an exciting and dynamic video.”
AS I LAY DYING is preparing to launch a European tour with TRIVIUM, CALIBAN and UPON A BURNING BODY before returning to the U.S. in November for a nationwide tour.
