As I Lay Dying Are Working on New Material in the Studio
Last June, As I Lay Dying dropped the "My Own Grave" single after reuniting their classic lineup. It appears there's more new music on the way as the group shared a photo from the studio, confirming that drum tracking is underway.
The Instagram post seen below shows drummer Jordan Mancino at work at Signature Sound Studios, which is located in San Diego, California. Presumably, this photo is a little old as the band is currently in the midst of a North American tour. As I Lay Dying did have a day off when this photo was posted, though that day off came between scheduled shows in South Carolina (March 27) and Florida (today, March 29).
It is not known if the metalcore icons are plotting their first full length album since Tim Lambesis was released from prison or if this will be another single. If it is a new album, it will close a seven-year gap between 2012's Awakened.
