An Ocean Between Us is the title of the forthcoming studio album by As I Lay Dying, and is their follow-up to Shadows Are Security. Initially, it was thought that the name of the album was to be titled Evolution. The band finished recording the album on May 5, and is currently set for an August 21, 2007 release. The band worked on the album with producer and current guitarist for Killswitch Engage, Adam Dutkiewicz. The album has since then been mixed by Colin Richardson (Napalm Death, Bullet for My Valentine).
Guitarist Nick Hipa had the following to say regarding the direction of the album.
"Collectively we've all pushed ourselves, and we're all doing things that we weren't even capable of doing on the last record. And on top of just experimenting and trying different things, I think we just wrote some pretty sick jams, so I'm happy with it. That's all I can say. For kids who like our band and think they know what to expect from us, it might throw them off a little bit . . . I encourage anybody who likes our band to approach this album with an open mind."

An Ocean Between Us is a superb album from AILD, and I believe that overall it's their best album to date. They keep a constant sound and feel throughout the album without it sounded too monotonous, and the heaviness and energy of the songs is astounding.

The Sound changed alittle...but the cd still amazes me...I love Nothing left and Sound of Truth..also what they did with music videos for those..is incredible...

As I Lay Dying has made some pretty sweet albums, but this one is, by far, THE BEST! the lyrics are very profound, the guitar riffs are insane and the drums are fast! both musicly and lyricly this cd is awesome!

I love this cd! it's so awesome. The new background vocals/clean vocals are really good and the lyrics are so strong. My favorites are the title track, Sound of Truth and This Is Who We Are

I admit, I hadn't previously listened to too much AILD, but after this album, I will be definitely keeping up with them. Strong vocals, nice melodies and guitars. I'm listening to The Sound Of Truth at this very moment. Check it out.
