Check out new song "Torn Down" below. Vocalist Jonny Hetherington comments: "'Torn Down' is about believing in yourself, plain and simple. Sometimes it's hard to dig deep and find your pilot light in the darkness, but it's there.
"I came across Amanda and Jonah's (Amanda Todd and Jonah Mowrey) stories on YouTube and they really affected me. In a way, they both inspired this song. Unfortunately we lost Amanda. I hope 'Torn Down' can be a beacon to those who find themselves at the end of their rope.” More...

"It's been a busy year for Art of Dying as we've inked a deal with Eleven Seven Music, (Motley Crue, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Escape The Fate) and finished our new record with David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin, Of Mice & Men) in New Jersey completely under the radar.
"I can't tell you how excited we are about the new music! Making this album was one of the most intense experiences we've ever been through, so we kept things pretty tight lipped in order to focus all of our energy into every lyric, note and beat of the creative process. We've seen all of the calls for new music coming in from our fans on our social media channels, and now I'm thrilled to say the record is done, and the wait is almost over!
"Many thanks to Allen Kovac, Nikki Sixx and our new family at Eleven Seven Music for aligning their vision with ours and helping us make this album a reality. We're ecstatic about our new home on the label where we're joining some amazing bands.
"North America is home base for Eleven Seven, but they put a ton of weight in touring their bands internationally to places in Europe, Asia and South America. So if you want to see Art of Dying in your back yard, now is the time to speak up and be heard!"

Guitarist Greg Bradley of Canadian act Art of Dying has conducted an interview with Hailsandhorns.com about the history of the band, signing to Intoxication Records, and the band's new album. Excerpts from the interview follow.
How was ART OF DYING formed?
Greg Bradley: ART OF DYING was formed by me and Jonny in 2004. We started writing songs then and recorded our independent album in 2005. We met Jeff Brown in 2007 when we needed a new drummer and Jeffy recommended Cale Gontier on bass and Tavis Stanley on guitar before we started touring with DISTURBED in early 2008. When we toured with Disturbed for the first time we knew we had the magical line-up to take AOD to the next level.
You have a new album called, Vices and Virtues, out now. Tell fans what they can expect from the album.
Greg Bradley: You can expect everything from Alice in Chains-style heavy guitar riffs to a U2-style ballad…big guitar and vocal melodies and a lot of vocal harmonies!
You are the first band signed to Disturbed’s label imprint, Intoxication Records. How did signing to that label come about?
Greg Bradley: Dan Donegan called us one day after picking up our indie CD from a radio promoter in Boston. He offered us a tour with Disturbed and watched us every night for 13 shows. David Draiman and Dan then flew us to Chicago a few months later and offered us a deal with Intoxication Records…an unbelievable opportunity!More...
