Jordan Mancino, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert of San Diego, California-based metal act As I Lay Dying have teamed up with vocalist Shane Blay (Oh, Sleeper) to create the new band Wovenwar. As Blabbermouth notes, over approximately the last year, the band completed work on new material recorded with producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag) with mixing duties currently being handled by Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Trivium).
Fans can now get their first full listen of Wovemwar's debut single, "All Rise." While not the final mastered version, the song is a proper representation of what's to come when Wovewar's self-titled debut, set to drop late summer.
As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis in Febraury pleaded guilty to hiring a hit man to kill his estranged wife. The singer remains free on $2 million bond until he is sentenced on May 2.
