AS I LAY DYING have released a new song called “Roots Below” which you can check out below.
Frontman Tim Lambesis comments: “Its exciting to be working on music again after some downtime.
“‘Roots Below’ was originally a B-side leftover from when we recorded [the 2019 album] ‘Shaped By Fire’, but Phil [Sgrosso, guitar] and Josh [Gilbert, bass, clean vocals] really brought new life to it when they recently finished it and added new layers.
“It’s been refreshing to get back to the creative process with the same team of songwriters being intact that have been writing with me since they joined the band.
“The lyrics were influenced by someone I recently met who shared a story of trauma with me that would have destroyed most people, yet from that struggle came strength, openness, and growth that inspired me.”
Late last month, guitarist Nick Hipa confirmed his exit from AS I LAY DYING, explaining that he can no longer justify being part of “a superficial pursuit” of the “story and meaning” that the band’s 2018 reunion was built upon.
