As I Lay Dying Returns to Manila for Shaped By Fire Asia Tour This January
Now carving a new path as they write the latest chapter for the band, As I Lay Dying is returning to the Philippines as part of their Shaped By Fire Asia Tour Live in Manila happening on January 20, 2020, at Skydome, SM City North EDSA.
Years after the band first scorched Manila, the metalcore behemoths are on track to reconnect with their Filipino fans, who last caught the band seven years ago at PULP SUMMER SLAM XIII: ‘Til Death Do Us Part.
The band, consisting of vocalist Tim Lambesis, drummer Jordan Mancino, guitarist Phil Sgrosso, guitarist Nick Hipa, and bassist Josh Gilbert, finally reunited after “a previous chapter of pervasive hurt and pain” for the release of their seventh and newest album titled Shaped By Fire.
The album carries tracks like “Redefined,” “Blinded,” and the title track “Shaped By Fire”.
From ashes, the band reignited a fire that now burns brighter than it ever has now that the brotherhood has reassembled, following Tim Lambesis’ release and subsequent reconciliation with bandmates.
“With everything that’s happened and all of the time away, there really was no other option than to be the best version of As I Lay Dying we could possibly be,” Tim has said in a statement. “We wanted to make sure we made an album that represented our best selves. Individually and collectively, a similar rebirth happened.”
Indeed, Shaped By Fire marked a triumphant return for a band that, despite circumstances that set them back for years, has found it in them to forge on, as they’ve been reborn with a new purpose following a long-winding journey of reproach and redemption.
