As I Lay Dying's 'No Lungs to Breathe' single speaks to surviving amidst isolated and adverse conditions, so it makes sense that the lyric video for the song is shot against the backdrop of the stars in outer space, with a mythical winged creature holding the key to it all.

Guitarist Nick Hipa created the video, which just debuted via the band's website. In addition, Hipa's got some wicked guitar licks rocking the song to the core. The hard-hitting and speedy rocker talks about overcoming the odds, with frontman Tim Lambesis screaming, "With no lungs to breathe / I had almost lost everything" in the song's chorus.

'No Lungs to Breathe' arrives just as the band are heading out on the road in support of their 'Awakened' album. The group is co-headlining the tour with The Devil Wears Prada, with support from For Today, the Color Morale and the Chariot on select dates. To see the remaining stops, click here.

The new single follows 'A Greater Foundation,' which impacted last fall. The momentum from the single and their 'Awakened' album led to fans voting As I Lay Dying the 2012 Metal Band of the Year in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards.
