After weeks of cryptic Instagram teasers and some drama involving an “official statement” on the future of the band that was later revealed to be written and posted by Tim Lambesis without the rest of the band’s knowledge, the group of musicians formerly known as As I Lay Dying (Jordan Mancino, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert) have officially announced their new project will be called Wovenwar.

Lambesis spilled the beans in his message, but the announcement confirms Shane Blay (Oh, Sleeper) will be the band’s lead vocalist. We’re now one week away from hearing the band’s first single, while Metal Blade will release the band’s debut album this summer. Click through for a video teaser and the official statement from Wovenwar’s website.

“JORDAN MANCINO (drums), NICK HIPA (guitar), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass/vocals) of San Diego, California based metal act As I Lay Dying, have teamed up with vocalist SHANE BLAY (previously lead guitar/clean vocals in Oh, Sleeper) to create the new band WOVENWAR.

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).

On Monday April 21, fans will get their first full listen of WOVENWAR’s debut single “All Rise”. While not the final mastered version, the song will be a proper representation of what’s to come when WOVENWAR’s self titled debut drops late summer 2014.

Stay tuned to MetalBlade.com and wovenwar.com for more information regarding album track listing, album artwork, touring, preorder info, new music, videos, social sites, etc.”
