As I Lay Dying Premiere “Shaped By Fire” Music Video

As I Lay Dying have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Shaped By Fire.” That effort will be released on September 20 and it will be the band’s first since Tim Lambesis was released from prison in December 2016 after infamously trying to hire a hitman to kill his former wife in 2013.

The group commented:

“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 slowly led towards 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.

We are honored to join forces with Nuclear Blast worldwide in releasing our new album, ‘Shaped By Fire’. Their legacy and contribution to the heavy music scene is 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!

In conjunction with our new album announcement, we are excited to share a music video for the title track ‘Shaped By Fire’. 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 Mathis Arnell, all of the crew, and actors that contributed to making this video with us under the very hot conditions!

We look forward to seeing our fans out on the road as we embark on the Latin American, European, and U.S. tours before closing the book on 2019.”

August Burns Red’s Jake Luhrs: “I Think That As I Lay Dying’s Story Is A Really Beautiful One Of Redemption And Forgiveness”

As I Lay Dying’s return is still a topic of controversy considering Tim Lambesis was released from prison in December 2016 after infamously trying to hire a hitman to kill his former wife in 2013, but some have chosen to forgive the frontman. One of those people is August Burns Red’s Jake Luhrs, who recently told Full Metal Jackie that he thinks “As I Lay Dying’s story is a really beautiful one of redemption and forgiveness.”

Luhrs said the following [transcribed by Loudwire]:

“First of all [my] HeartSupport [organization] is all about acceptance, and encouraging and forgiving. Our slogan is: ‘It doesn’t matter the color of your skin, what you believe in, who you are in love with, what’s been done to you, or what you have done, we accept you and want to help you where you are.’

I think that AILD’s story is a really beautiful one of redemption and forgiveness. It’s one that I don’t think a lot of people may think that forgiveness goes that far, or redemption is able at that point or forgiveness that we can really do that.

I really want to showcase and support them and give them a place to share that story and the truth about that and their process of forgiving each other and all of that, and kind of remind or see that we need to love each other.

We need to practice forgiveness and lean to second chances because it doesn’t matter really. You can take that story, their story, apply that to your own life and in some degree, you will need acceptance for forgiveness; you’re going to have to do that with other people. We’re human. And if we choose love we can conquer a lot of evil and a lot of hurt and pain.”

It’s worth noting that Luhrs previously guested on a new As I Lay Dying song titled “Redefined” and that HeartSupport has released a documentary on the band called “Misery Evolving – The Story Of Tim Lambesis & As I Lay Dying.”

House Of Blues Defend Decision To Book As I Lay Dying

As I Lay Dying’s return is still a topic of controversy considering Tim Lambesis was released from prison in December 2016 after infamously trying to hire a hitman to kill his former wife in 2013. With this being the case, a reporter for the Boston Herald recently took issue with the House Of Blues in Boston, MA for booking the band. A representative has since issued a statement defending their decision: “Though staff and management may not agree with particular performers appearing at our venues, ticket buyers have the right to purchase tickets or not purchase tickets.” It’s worth noting that seven of the shows on the group’s upcoming tour with After The Burial and Emmure will be held at House Of Blues venues.
