AS I LAY DYING fans - the wait is finally over!

Well into their two-decade career and with seven albums under their belt, the Grammy-nominated five-piece metalcore unit is back with a bludgeoning, unmissable new anthem, "Burden", out now via Napalm Records. Premiering with a high-energy music video, "Burden" boasts gripping energy, charging in with the band's trademark breakneck intensity, soaring choruses, and ingenious guitar soloing.

This track is just a taste of what's to come from the band's next official release and further bolsters the proven line-up of vocalist Tim Lambesis and guitarist Phil Sgrosso alongside recent newcomers Ryan Neff, Nick Pierce and Ken Susi. "Burden" was co-produced by Phil Sgrosso and Hiram Hernandez, mixed by Aaron Chaparian and mastered by Ted Jensen.

The track release coincides with today's announcement of AS I LAY DYING's 2024 European headline tour, beginning this fall! The Through Storms Ahead Tour kicks off on November 15, 2024, in Wurzburg, Germany, and will trek through several more countries such as France, Italy, Spain, Poland, Sweden, and Norway, coming to an end on December 15 in Oberhausen, Germany. The tour will feature support from CALIBAN, DECAPITATED, and LEFT TO SUFFER. Tickets for this unrelenting line-up are on sale now - don't miss your chance to witness these unforgettable performances.

AS I LAY DYING's Phil Sgrosso says about the track and video:

"It's a pretty special moment for us to finally share some new music! "Burden" was originally inspired by a guitar melody I wrote years ago on an old demo, thinking that it was lost for good in the demo abyss. It wasn't until Tim dug it up and was inspired to shape a new song idea for it. The collaboration process with our co-producer Hiram Hernandez and new members brought new life to not only the song but the band as a whole, as we faced this new creative chapter together. Musically, we feel that "Burden" represents a familiar part of our melodic history combined with a modern sense of energy and aggression. We really pushed ourselves to expand our musical capabilities in every department. We look forward to the addition of "Burden" into our live show as well as introducing more music we've been working hard on over the past few years. Stay tuned.

"It was a phenomenal experience working with Tom Flynn on the video for "Burden". We were fans of his creative approach to modern music videos and could sense his high level of enthusiasm to deliver a video that would match the intensity of the song. He completely knocked it out of the park capturing the band performance and shaping a captivating concept which we will expand further into the release of our second single release..."

Sgrosso adds about the European tour:

"Europe has become a second home to us so we always look forward to returning for a 'go big and go hard' headline tour. Traveling alongside us will be Germany's very own CALIBAN, Poland's finest death metal legends DECAPITATED, and the pummeling LEFT TO SUFFER. Each show will be a night to celebrate heavy music with the fans, let's make it a memorable one together."
