ex-As I Lay Dying guitarist Nick Hipa and his band MIRE premiere debut single

Mire

Former As I Lay Dying guitar player Nick Hipa has joined forces with two metal veterans to unveil the band Mire.

Mire was originally conceived in 2017 with guitarist Ryan Gilsan (ex-Allegaeon, Pyrithion) and vocalist Benton Mckibben. The pair issued a six-song record in 2018, but they've now relaunched with Hipa and have released their debut single, "Refined." Featuring drums by Jesse Beahler (Thy Art Is Murder, ex-Jungle Rot) and produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Archspire), the track and its music video can be found below.

"Very stoked to share some new music from my band Mire," says Hipa. "Ryan, Benton, and I started this journey together in 2017, with the simple desire to create stylistically unrestrained music based on mutual admiration for riff based songwriting."

"Our first single 'Refined' is out now. It's a decently pummeling tune that represents just one facet of what we've created together. I really hope you dig it, and look forward to sharing more tunes in the near future."

At least he didn't try to have his wife murdered like Tim Lambesis from AILD

If you're a man and a woman has never almost pushed you to the edge of hiring a hitman to murder them you're a virgin.


anonymous 275 days ago

Bunch of dildos on here."wahhh! Tim tried to kill is wife. Wahhh!" But it's cool for them to find out that their sister is really their Mom. "Brother, I got to tell you our families dark secret." Brother replies..."What is it Sis?" Sister nervously responds..."I'm really your Mom as well as your sister, and your Dad....well he is your Uncle brother Grandpa." Brother Son replies..."That's ok Mom!" "At least I know I have a Mom now, and Daddy grandpa didnt try to kill you like that scum Tim Lambesis."
