NEWS: As I Lay Dying stare at the roots below…

At some point later this year As I Lay Dying will be unveiling a deluxe edition of their current album “Shaped By Fire“, loaded with songs left from the recording sessions, instrumentals, re-interpretations and live renditions. The news comes with one of those new songs in “Roots Below” and fans will be curious as to whether it will make the bands set come April and the 10th Anniversary of Impericon Festival shows in Germany…

Phil Sgrosso states, “‘Roots Below’ was a track I initially wrote for the Shaped By Fire album, but at the time we collectively felt it needed more time and attention to develop to its fullest potential. We were finally able to piece it all together along with some other material taken from the Shaped By Fire touring cycle, bundling it all into a deluxe version of the album. Apart from the studio versions of ‘Roots Below’ and ‘Destruction or Strength,’ there will be an assortment of live songs captured on tour from 2019 in Europe, several ballad/electronic re-interpretations, a studio version of an instrumental track we wrote exclusively for the live show, an instrumental version of the entire album, as well as some other transitional pieces from our set that we wanted to share as part of this release. This has been a very productive first step towards getting back into the creative zone and beginning to focus on new material for next year.”
