“It’s hard to believe that we’ve been a band for as long as we have yet have never released an official DVD documenting our first 7 years. As a result, we’ve included so much content that you hardly have to like our music to be entertained. With that said, it feels good knowing how many diehard fans over the years have supported our band and their simple enjoyment of our music has given us the chance to see the world!” As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis
