Wovenwar are back and honor is dead

Posted by on September 7, 2016


Forming from the ashes of As I Lay Dying after their lead singer kinda went to jail for trying to have his wife murdered, Wovenwar put out a solid debut album back in 2014. IT’s been a few years, and now they’re returning with their sophomore album, Honor is Dead, on October 21st. And while the first album’s music was written before vocalist Shane Blay, the whole band worked on this one. And as opposed to gathering in a studio to labor over the album, they all recorded their parts individually spread out across the country in California, Alabama and Texas.

“Recording separately across multiple states at different times with a mixing engineer bouncing between multiple countries made things very tricky,” guitarist Nick Hipa admits. “Luckily we’ve all made records before and everything ended up working out.”

To help raise awareness of the album, the band have released a video for the album’s first single, “Censorhip.”Surprisingly for a song called that, the clip, directed by guitarist Nick Hipa, is safe for work.

Check the band’s tour dates with Soilwork, Unearth, Battlecross and Darkness Divided after the video, and pre-order the band’s new album here.
