AS I LAY DYING Gitarrist Phil Sgrosso gewährt uns einen kleinen Einblick in die derzeitigen Arbeiten am neuen Album "The Powerless Rise":
"Hey everyone! We've been pretty busy the past few months. We're about several last minute pickscrapes/thunderchugs away from finishing ALL tracking for the Powerless Rise. We've had Colin Richardson and his assistant Martyn "Ginge" Ford out in San Diego working on mixes every day for about a month so far. It took a bit of time for us to get the guitar tone in the right place, but we've finally settled on something we all love and compliments the drums and bass quite nicely. Josh and Tim's vocals are sounding great as well. Colin and Ginge are doing a killer job!
Besides stopping by the studio a couple days a week, we've all been preparing to start up the next tour cycle. We've got an Australian/New Zealand run in late March, the Revolver awards April 8th in LA, followed by a US headliner that'll be going on right around the time our new record comes out. It's been nice being home most of the past year but it's time to get back out there with some new songs and an entirely new stage setup to intensify the live show. I've been missing that adrenaline rush from playing to our fans and I assure you the new songs will bring our live energy to a new level. Keep an eye out, we'll be coming to you soon…"
