Metal Blade Announces New Signing: WOVENWAR (featuring members of As I Lay Dying and Oh, Sleeper)

Tim Lambesis, frontman for famed Metal band As I Lay Dying released a blanket statement, believed to be under the guise of the entire band. In the statement, he released the details of AILD’s future for both himself and the remaining members of the band. However, when the band learned of his post, they immediately took to a retaliatory post that exposed that it was indeed all Lambesis who had written the statement, without any prior knowledge from the other members of the band. They also announced that they had been under the radar, in the studio and are geared up to release a new album with a new project, featuring Shane Blay (guitarist/clean vocals, ex-Oh, Sleeper). Metal Blade Records has announced the details of that project, WOVENWAR, signed the band and announced that the mixing/mastering process for their debut album will begin in late April with their debut single, “All Rise”, set to premiere on April 21st!
