As I Lay Dying debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Torn Between‘ Monday. The video features the band performing its new single, and crosses that with a story about a man apparently being reunited with a love interest thanks to an experimental tool that he has developed.
The song’s musical arrangement is a more melodic work than some of its past works. The news release distributed about the video does not offer an explanation for the song’s lyrical theme, but from the story featured in the video, it would seem that the theme has to do with someone dealing with an internal emotional struggle of sorts.
‘Torn Between’ is featured in AILD’s latest album Shaped By Fire (2019) The also has also produced the singles ‘Shaped By Fire,’ ‘Blinded,’ ‘Redefined‘ and ‘My Own Grave.’ Additionally, the band debuted the B-side ‘Destruction or Strength‘ on March 27.
Sales of the B-side — and a new t-shirt that the band is selling — will go to benefit the San Diego, CA-based nonprofit, Feeding San Diego, which works to feed low-income families, senior citizens and everyone suffering from unemployment by providing food for those people. The sales will also benefit AILD’s road crew, since the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak has cancelled the band’s tour.
Along with debuting its new single and video, As I Lay Dying also announced Monday, a new series of live dates with Whitechapel and Shadow of Intent for 2021. The “Burn To Emerge 2021 Tour” is scheduled to launch Feb. 17 in Tucson, AZ and to run through March 20 in Riverside, CA.
