Former Members of AS I LAY DYING Bought a Music Venue in San Diego

by | Jun 27, 2014

If you’ve been to a show in San Diego, there’s a good chance you’ve been to Brick By Brick. The venue that’s been around for a couple decades took some time off in February “for renovations, licensing, and to revamp” — and now it’s back in action. This time with new owners, the former members of As I Lay Dying (now in Wovenwar).

That’s right — Jordan Mancino, Phil Sgrosso, and Nick Hipa have teamed up to purchase the venue, which will reopen on July 24th. That’s quite a summer for these gentlemen, as they’re also gearing up to release Wovenwar’s self-titled debut album on August 5th.

Not only that, but they’ll be touring pretty extensively beginning next month. Here’s how their schedule looks.
