As I Lay Dying won’t release its new album until September 25th.  But to get fans excited for its impending release, the band has officially released the lyric video for the first single off of the album, ‘Cauterize.’

The video shows a moth like insect flying against AILD’s band logo, while the lyrics to the song play overtop.  The song comes across as a very personal piece.  The band sings on the song’s chorus, “I’m caught between the feeling of being pulled apart, or stuffed into a cell.”  There’s obviously some inner conflict in the song.  fans can check out the video on the band’s official Youtube channel now at http://www.youtube.comasilaydying

As I Lay Dying will be touring throughout the Summer with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in support of “Awakened.”  Fans can check out all of the band’s tour dates online at http://www.asilaydying.com, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/asilaydying, and on Twitter at http://twitter.com/asilaydying.
