August Burns Red recently wrapped up their European headline tour for the 10-year anniversary tour of their much-loved album, Messengers (2007), with performances slotted for the fall on Rock Allegiance Festival, Houston Open Air, and Aftershock.
By personally aiming beyond your perceived potential, you can truly grow. That’s been the case every time August Burns Red record an album, and it’s quietly turned the Pennsylvania quintet-JB Brubaker [lead guitar], Brent Rambler [rhythm guitar], Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs [lead vocals], and Dustin Davidson [bass]-into a GRAMMY® Award-nominated heavy music torchbearer.
Their journey began back in 2003 with marathon jam sessions on a farm belonging to Matt’s family in the egg refrigerator. Embracing a diehard Rust Belt work ethic, they tirelessly pushed towards the top of heavy music with a series of critically acclaimed albums and countless gigs. A hard-earned high watermark, 2015’s Found In Far Away Places marked their second consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200. The single “Identity” notched a GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of “Best Metal Performance.”
A streaming juggernaut, both “Identity” and “Ghosts” [feat. Jeremy McKinnon] crossed the 3-million mark on Spotify. When it came time to record their seventh full-length Phantom Anthem [Fearless Records] with longtime producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland, the game didn’t change. The musicians put their heads down and rallied around the same shared goal, uncorking a barrage of infectious intensity, the boys augmented and amplified the touchstones of their signature style on Phantom Anthem. The musical equivalent of a clenched fist haymaker, the grooves hit harder, the hooks blaze brighter, and the instrumentation ignites even more intricacy.
Phantom Anthem will be released on October 6th and can be pre-ordered at https://caroline.lnk.to/PhantomAnthem, with both singles “Invisible Enemy” and The Frost as the instant grat tracks available now. “Invisible Enemy” and “The Frost” are streaming now at Spotify.
