“To all of our US fans,

We want to officially inform you that all of the May and June tour dates from our Burn To Emerge US tour have been postponed and rescheduled. We suspect this comes as no surprise given all that’s been going on with the pandemic.

The new rescheduled dates will take place in February & March of next year, and we’re excited to be able to keep the same lineup with Whitechapel and Shadow Of Intent. All the new dates are listed below.

Your tickets will be honored for the postponed shows. However we understand if some of you are unable to attend the new dates. Anyone who wants a refund can begin the process at your point of purchase.

We are still working on a rescheduled date during our Feb/Mar tour for Richmond, VA, so unless you need an immediate refund please hold onto your tickets until further notice.

Thanks for your understanding and continued support. Please take good care of yourselves. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

with love and gratitude,
As I Lay Dying“

As I Lay Dying Release New Song “Destruction Or Strength” To Benefit Charity And Their Road Crew

As I Lay Dying have released a new song titled “Destruction Or Strength.” The track was recorded during the “Shaped By Fire“ sessions and it can be streamed below. Proceeds from the song and the band’s new shirt will go towards their road crew and Feeding San Diego.

As I Lay Dying commented:

“These are concerning and unprecedented times. Amidst the uncertainty of how long the COVID-19 pandemic will last, or how severe its impact will be, there are countless people desperately struggling to weather the storm.

In an effort to make a positive contribution to our communities and the people closest to us, we are releasing an unreleased song from our Shaped By Fire album sessions called “Destruction or Strength“. It will be available on all streaming platforms and digital retailers, including Bandcamp as a “pay what you want” download. We will also be selling a t-shirt featuring the single artwork.

Listen and download “Destruction Or Strength” here:
asilaydying.bandcamp.com

Purchase the “Destruction Or Strength” cover artwork t-shirt here:
https://merch.asilaydying.com/products/as-i-lay-dying-destruction-or-strength-tee

All proceeds from both will be aggregated and donated to the following:

Travel restrictions and responsible social-distancing measures have crippled the entire live event industry. While touring is a substantial part of a bands’ income, it is the entire source of financial sustenance for the hard working and talented crew it depends upon. A portion of everything raised will be distributed to our techs and production staff to help alleviate the financial strain of lost income and work opportunity. We love these people as family and want to help them though this the best we can.

With the closures of all schools in our state, Feeding San Diego is being extremely pro-active in distributing food to support students who previously relied on free and reduced priced school meals as their primary source of nutrition. Feeding San Diego is also continuing their efforts in providing hunger relief to senior citizens, low-income families, and all of the workers in our local hospitality, service, and tourist industries who are facing financial hardships from unemployment. The remainder of everything raised will be sent as a monetary contribution to this organization, to assist them in serving the hunger needs of our community.

We recognize this is an uneasy climate for everyone right now so there is no pressure to contribute. At the very least, we hope sharing unreleased music will have a positive impact for those of you excited to hear it.

Please be safe and kind to one another. We will get through this together.”
