In case you haven’t heard the news, Metal Blade Records is in the midst of celebrating their 30th Anniversary. So far, they’ve had a party during SXSW and had a Scion A/V Club showcase in Pomona, CA. It was only a matter of time until they brought the festivities to the East Coast, and they’ll be doing that this coming Tuesday (25) in New York City with a free show featuring As I Lay Dying and Battlecross. The show will be hosted by Metal Blade artists Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine (aka, the “young” guys from VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show) as well as SiriusXM’s Jose Mangin.
There’s only one way to get into the show, taking place at New York’s Santos Party House, and that’s by pre-ordering the band’s new album, Awakened, at one of three local record stores and getting a laminate allowing you entry. Actually, make that two ways: Metal Insider is giving away a pair of tickets to the show. To enter, simply leave your favorite As I Lay Dying song in the comments section below. Also, make sure you’re at least 18 and can make it to NYC this coming Tuesday (25). We’ll pick one winner at random at 5pm this Friday (21).
