Mire (ex-As I Lay Dying) Drop New Song and Video, “A New Found Rain”


Mire, the new project featuring former As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa, have released their third single, “A New Found Rain,” along with a music video.

The band also features guitarist Ryan Glisan and vocalist Benton McKibbern alongside Hipa. Thy Art is Murder drummer Jesse Beahler (ex-Black Crown Initiate) also plays on this track.

Two previous singles, “Refined” and “Inside,” appeared earlier this fall.

Hipa announced in August that he’d left As I Lay Dying over a year earlier, saying, “Respectfully, I left because the story and meaning we built our reunion upon decayed considerably over time,” referencing the band’s 2018 reunion following frontman Tim Lambesis’s release from prison.

You can listen to the new song and watch the video below. A New Found Rain will come out December 17; pre-order here.
