Wovenwar have released the song Profane from their self-titled debut album, which will be released on August 5.

The group, featuring former As I Lay Dying members Jordan Mancino, Josh Gilbert, Nick Hipa and Phil Sgrosso, teamed up with Oh, Sleeper vocalist Shane Blay, following the imprisonment of vocalist Tim Lambesis, who was jailed for six years for plotting to have his wife murdered earlier this year.
Speaking about the band’s sound, guitarist Hipa revealed they wanted to create something different and having Blay on vocal duties allowed them to experiment.
He says: “We wanted to try to include the ebb and flow and highs and lows within the same song. That works well with a guy like Shane because his voice can fit over a driving, aggressive rhythm, or something that’s a little more subdued.”
Wovenwar hit the road next month across the UK, including slots at both the Reading and Leeds Festivals.
