The Grammy-nominated metal group As I Lay Dying is setting out on tour to support its newest album, The Powerless Rise. The album drops May 11, 2010, on Metal Blade Records. The tour begins April 29, 2010.

“Now that we’re almost done with the new album, we can’t wait to get on the road and start playing the new songs for our fans in the U.S.,” explains lead vocalist Tim Lambesis.

“Along with a new album comes a fresh excitement, and I can honestly say that I’m as passionate about music now as I was when this band first started. The tour lineup is solid and marks our first time getting to tour with our friends in Demon Hunter. Get there early to see the whole thing!”

The band has built its fan base by playing thousands of shows with acts including Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Rob Zombie, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold, Mastodon, Atreyu, Killswitch Engage, Every Time I Die, Deftones and In Flames, to name a few. The group has performed on the main stage of most of the major rock festivals around the world including the Vans Warped Tour, Ozzfest, Sounds of the Underground, Bamboozle, Taste of Chaos, Cornerstone, Wacken and the Download Festival. As I Lay Dying is comprised of Lambesis on vocals, Nick Hipa on guitar, Jordan Mancino on drums, Phil Sgrosso on guitar and Josh Gilbert on bass.
