Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce another event has been set up in celebration of the record label's 30 Anniversary, which included a packed showcase at this year's SXSW in Austin, TX, the Metal Blade Scion A/V Club showcase in Pomona, CA on 9/15, and the recently announced Los Angeles Armored Saint show at the House of Blues on 11/30.

For this next event Metal Blade has teamed up with Metal Wreckage and is moving things to the east coast. Taking place Tuesday September 25 at Santo's Party House in New York City, this event is offering fans the chance to attend a private CD Release show for As I Lay Dying, whose new album "Awakened" drops the same day and marks the band's first show since a run on this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

Supporting the San Diego, CA metal heavyweights are Detroit, MI's very own blue-collar thrash metallers, Battlecross, who recently wrapped up a run on this summer's Trespass America tour featuring Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, and more.

Starting September 14, fans can pre-order "Awakened" at three New York-area independent record stores and receive a free laminate that gives you access into the private NYC release show. Stores participating includes: Looney Tunes (West Babylon, NY), Vintage Vinyl (Fords, NJ), and J&R (NYC).

Emceeing the event will be label-mates, comedians, and hosts of VH1 Classics "That Metal Show" Don Jamieson & Jim Florentine and Jose Mangin from SiriusXM's Liquid Metal. The release show will be streamed live worldwide so fans outside of the NYC area can see both bands perform a few songs as well as check out interviews. The stream will begin at 8pm EST and can be accessed at this location.
