One of the most buzzed about bands of early 2014 is Wovenwar, the new act featuring As I Lay Dying's instrumental members along with frontman Shane Blay of Oh, Sleeper fame. After spending the better part of a month teasing their new project, the group has issued their first new song called 'All Rise.'

The track is an off-to-the-races rocker with drummer Jordan Mancino pushing the pace and plenty of masterful guitar work courtesy of Nick Hipa and Phil Sgrosso. The song aptly tackles the topic of having the chance to "rise again," which is fitting given the state of limbo that As I Lay Dying's members have been in since vocalist Tim Lambesis' arrest last year on murder-for-hire charges. Blay and bassist Josh Gilbert provide a more melodic vocal take on 'All Rise,' but the song is definitely a promising start from Wovenwar.

The five-piece act has been in the studio with producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag), while Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head, Trivium) has handled the mixing duties on their forthcoming release.

At present, Wovenwar are eying a late summer release for their debut disc. Keep an ear out for more coming from Wovenwar as their new album draws nearer.
