Producer: New AS I LAY DYING Album Is 'Brilliant'

June 1, 2007

Producer Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) has issued the following update:

"Just finished mixing the new AS I LAY DYING album in London. It is brilliant, people! Amazing songs all over the place. It's a truly special album and Jordan [Mancino] has to be one the THE best drummers in metal. Seriously. It was a real honour to mix this album."

AS I LAY DYING has set "An Ocean Between Us" as the title of its highly-anticipated follow up to 2005's "Shadows Are Security".

The majority of "An Ocean Between Us" was recorded at vocalist Tim Lambesis' home studio, aptly named Lambesis Studio, in San Diego, California. Adam Dutkiewicz (UNDEROATH, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE ACACIA STRAIN) of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE collaborated with AS I LAY DYING on all recording and production duties. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Separation", "Nothing Left", "Within Destruction" and title track, "An Ocean Between Us".

AS I LAY DYING recently officially announced the addition of bassist Josh Gilbert to the group's ranks. Josh joins the band from THIS ENDEARING, a local group in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. "Based on hearing Josh's previous band, we knew he was a great bass player and singer," says Lambesis. "But when he came out to San Diego to try out and rehearse with us, he ended up exceeding our expectations. Shortly after the try out we invited him to come back and fill in for us on our January U.K. tour. That tour really solidified the fact that Josh is the right guy for us."
