Lexington, KY’s Beyond the Shore have completed an extended tour that began in February. The band has spent the last two months driving across the US twice for over 60 total shows. While on tour, the band tends to find themselves in interesting situation, which at any given time may be fueled by boredom, booze, or simply the randomness inherent in finding oneself in a new town nearly every day! At the beginning of this tour, Beyond the Shore visited the Metal Blade offices, where they reminisced about some of their most entertaining experiences while on tour.

Beyond the Shore recalls some of their most notable moments on the road. The links below jump to specific stories:

Metal Blade Records announce the signing of WOVENWAR featuring members of As I Lay Dying and Oh, Sleeper

Recording complete and set for mastering in late April –first music from the new band coming soon!

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce that JORDAN MANCINO (drums), NICK HIPA (guitar), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass) of San Diego, California based metal act As I Lay Dying, have teamed up with vocalist SHANE BLAY (previously lead guitar/clean vocals in Oh, Sleeper) to create the new band WOVENWAR. Over approximately the last year, the band completed work on new material recorded with producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag) with mixing duties currently being handled by Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Trivium).

On Monday April 21, fans will get their first full listen of WOVENWAR’s debut single “All Rise”.  While not the final mastered version, the song will be a proper representation of what’s to come when WOVENWAR’s self titled debut drops late summer 2014.
