Jordan Mancino (drums), Nick Hipa (guitar), Phil Sgrosso (guitar) and Josh Gilbert (bass) got together with Shane Blay (vocals) and Wovenwar was formed. Meaning that this is the band of As I Lay Dying musicians with the singer from Oh, Sleeper.

Over the past year, they’ve been working with Bill Stevenson (producer) and Colin Richardson (mixing) in what will be their self-titled debut album, scheduled for release late this summer. The first single, “All Rise”, is streaming already in their official website (hitting the digital webshops this Monday, May 19th), along with the first studio report. The latter features Mancino tracking his drumming parts: “It’s weird to think that I finished tracking drums for this Wovenwar record over 5 months ago. What an amazing and powerful experience it was being back in the studio creating and tracking with Nick, Phil, and Josh, and for the first time with Shane. Our past studio experiences together have always been done with the utmost efficiency and professionalism. With this Wovenwar record, we carried that same dedication of efficiency, but with more room and purpose to create while in the studio. This being the first time in the studio with Shane it was easy to tell that he shares the same dedication as the four us. Having Bill and Jason as producers, Daniel and Joseph as engineers, as well Colin and Carl for mixing, I couldn’t have imagined a more epic team of dudes to be part of this record. The history we all have together set the tone and comfort for this recording process, but what was accomplished was much more than I ever imagined. I am honored to be part of this record and honored to stand alongside my fellow band mates and production team as we begin this process of showing “All Rise” to the world.”
