Nuclear Blast Records added another band to its artist roster this week.
The company added As I Lay Dying to its roster, according to a news release sent by the company. The document states the band — in its original lineup — will release its new album Shaped By Fire Sept. 20 through the label.
The album will be available on CD, vinyl and exclusive bundle with T-shirt. The full details on each platform’s release is noted below. Pre-orders are open now.
Shaped By Fire is available in the following formats:
- CD Digipak
- Beer W/ Black Splatter Vinyl (Limited to 2000)
- Bone W/ Black Splatter Vinyl (Limited to 500)
- Red W/ Black Splatter Vinyl (Limited to 250)
- Orange / Black Swirl Vinyl (Limited to 250)
- Black Vinyl
- Clear Vinyl (Limited to 300)
- T-shirt Bundle (Includes CD digipak & t-shirt available in sizes: S-XXL)
The band released a collective statement about signing to the label.
“We are honored to join forces with Nuclear Blast Records in releasing our new album Shaped By Fire,” the statement read. “Their legacy and contribution to the heavy music scene in 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!”
The band added, “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 led toward 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.”
In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted the video for the album’s title track/lead single Friday. The video crosses footage of the band performing its new single with a man covered in burns crawling on the ground of the set as burning embers fly through the air above him.
The band talked about the video’s treatment and the song’s musical arrangement in a separate statement.
“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 Mathias Arnell, all of the crew and actors that contributed to making this video with us under the very hot conditions.”
The full track listing for Shaped By Fire is noted below.
