Laid In Stone has officially called it quits, with several members going on to form a new group. The band comments:
"To all of our family, friends and especially our fans, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that Laid in Stone is no more. This may come as shock to some of you, but shouldn't be a surprise to many of you.
"We haven't really been active since September of 2014, when our guitar player and good friend Trent decided to walk away from music altogether. We supported his decision, and continue to support his decision to this day, and he will always be a great friend to Kyle, Danny, and myself.
"But his departure left us at a crossroad. Do we continue playing music that we are only kind of passionate about in LIS or do we start a brand new project entirely, playing music that the three of us all enjoy? We chose the latter, hence why this band is no more.
"We want to thank everyone who has ever supported this band. It means the world to everyone who has ever been involved in LIS at one point or another, and we will always cherish the memories we have made touring around the country playing music for you all. That being said, if you are interested in checking out what Danny, Kyle and I have been working on for the past year, go to the My Own Will Facebook page and drop us a like!
"We will be releasing a brand new music video on Black Friday, with our debut EP 'Ghosts' dropping December 14th. This isn't Laid in Stone part 2, but a new band with a bit more focus and direction. We hope you can support MOW in same manner you have supported this band, and we hope to see you all on the road in 2016. We hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season." More...
Dark Harvest Records artist Laid In Stone has released a new video for the track "Tenfold," which can be found below.
"Tenfold" comes off the band's new album, "Echoes Left Behind," coming out later this month on Dark Harvest Records.
Today Dark Harvest Records is proud to announce the signing of Michican act Laid in Stone. Dark Harvest issued the following press release about the band:
"Laid In Stone formed in late 2009 in the town of Oxford, Michigan by Trent Heichel (guitars) and brothers Kyle (bass) and Danny (drums) Cummings. Soon after, the trio recruited their high school friend and local vocalist Chad Rice, and set about taking Laid In Stone to the top of the metal world.
"The band hit the ground running. Without their line-up finalized and a mere two months before embarking on a self-organized and financed three month U.S. tour, they took to the studio to lay down the first of two independent EPs.
"They quickly gained credit in their local scene by performing with many national acts: Mushroomhead, Before The Fallen Dreams, Arsonists Get All The Girls, As They Sleep, etc. On their first full U.S. tour Laid In Stone sold 1000 CDs hand to hand. This caught the attention of producer Don Debiase (Beneath the Sky, Forever Interror) who helped Laid In Stone with the 2011 EP 'The Perception of Power.'
"This EP emphasized songwriting in place of metal's more common thrash focus, and prompted Tinderbox Music owner Jon Delange to work on landing the group several contracts with major T.V. shows like MTV’s Fantasy Factory and Nitro Circus.
"While earning their stripes on the road, showcasing and developing their sound, Laid In Stone drew up plans for what was to become their full length debut, 'Echoes Left Behind,' at the end of 2011. The band was recruited for Artist Management through Distilled Entertainment and the band began recording soon after. More...
