August Burns Red Checks In From The Studio

August Burns Red will be releasing a limited split with Silverstein titled "Four Minutes Being Cool" for the upcoming Record Store Day, and the band is also at work on a new full-length album. August Burns Red has now checked in from the studio with the following recording update:

"Hey everyone, I wanted to update you on where we are currently at with the recording of our 5th full length album. We officially started tracking about a month ago and by the end of this week we will be completely finished with the tracking phase of the album. Dustin wrapped up bass yesterday and Matt just put the finishing touches on his drums by sprinkling some overdubs (tambourine, shakers, conga, etc) over a bunch of songs. JB and Brent wrapped up all their guitars last week and Jake will be done recording vocals in a couple days.

"What does all this mean? Well, we are nearly done with the hard work aspect of this album and can get into the mixing, which is the fun stuff. While nearly all the elements are in place, the levels of each instrument are all over the place. We’ll be spending all of next week mixing the album and making sure it sounds awesome. After working on this intensely for the last few months, we are beyond excited to hear all the elements come together.

"I’m terrible at describing our music so I’ll just say that this album is going to be a really fun listen with a lot of meat to sink your teeth into. We can’t wait for you to hear it!"

August Burns Red To Record New Album

Following two monstrous years that saw August Burns Red release multiple albums – 2011’s "Leveler" and 2012’s holiday album, "Sleddin’ Hill" – the PA-based quintet is back at it. Beginning next week the band will hit the studio to start recording a fifth full-length album (holiday releases notwithstanding), due out later this year.

“2012 turned out to be quite intense for us from a touring standpoint,” says guitarist JB Brubaker. “We did more traveling than we had ever previously done in our career and after three straight months on the road to end the year I think we were all ready to come home and shift into writing/recording mode. Now that the writing is complete we are all itching to get started with the actual tracking.”

August Burns Red has opted to keep it in the family for the forthcoming effort, reteaming with Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland of Atrium Audio - the same hometown studio where the band recorded last year’s "Sleddin’ Hill." More...

August Burns Red Streaming "Sleigh Ride"

August Burns Red is once again pleased to spread some pre-holiday cheer with the release of “Sleigh Ride,” the second new track from upcoming Christmas album "August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album" - in stores October 9th from Solid State Records.

"’Sleigh Ride’ was the last song to come together for Sleddin' Hill' and one of the trickier songs to cover due to its crazy structure and various key changes,” says guitarist JB Brubaker. “The original song is all over the place and so is our version. ‘Sleigh Ride’ is a complete roller coaster - there is even a jazz section in the middle complete with horns. The end reminds me of a rock n roll dance party in the 1960s. I don't know what else to say - you just have to listen to it."

August Burns Red Streaming New Christmas Song

August Burns Red is pleased to share “Flurries,” the first new track revealed from the band's upcoming Christmas album "August Burns Red presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album" - in stores October 9th from Solid State Records. The track is one of two original compositions on the album. Listen to the song in the player below or over at the band's website, where pre-orders are also available.

"’Flurries’ is one of two original songs I wrote for the record,” says guitarist JB Brubaker. “It’s the first track on Sleddin' Hill and it’s a dynamic song that begins with a big build-up before kicking into gear. We were able to play with all sorts of layers in this song including strings, lots of different bells and booming war drums. I definitely think the song sets the tone for what is to come on the rest of the record."

In addition to original songs, the 13-track release features fresh takes on classics such as “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland” and even “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer.” The album also compiles remixed and remastered versions of the band’s previous holiday singles, “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Little Drummer Boy” coupled with an updated version of the band’s rendition of “Carol of the Bells,” heard in Frank Miller’s (300, Sin City) movie The Spirit and Seth MacFarlane’s (Family Guy) American Dad.

August Burns Red Releasing Christmas Album

After releasing an amped-up cover of a holiday classic in each of the past four years, August Burns Red is officially announcing details of a full-length Christmas album: "August Burns Red presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album." The album will be released on October 9th, 2012.

The 13-track release features new takes on classics such as “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland,” and even “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer,” as well as original compositions. The album also compiles remixed and remastered versions of the band’s previous holiday hits, like “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” and “Little Drummer Boy.” Rounding out the collection is an updated version of the band’s rendition of “Carol of the Bells,” heard in Frank Miller’s movie The Spirit and Seth MacFarlane’s American Dad.

“The idea of doing a full Christmas album has been floating around in the ABR camp for a few years now, but what always held us back was finding the time and energy to write an additional full-length in between touring and writing our regular records,” explains guitarist and principle songwriter JB Brubaker. “After finishing [2011’s] Leveler I finally felt inspired enough to tackle the Christmas album idea.”

The band chose to come home and work at Lancaster's Atrium Audio with longtime friends Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland on "Sleddin' Hill." “Because this was such a different type of album, I was able to get a little more wild with my influences,” states Brubaker. “There’s a section inspired by one of my favorite bands, Beirut. There’s also guitar solo that is an ode to Blue Album-era Weezer, and my punk roots are evident all over the album.” More...

August Burns Red Announces European Shows

After a momentous 2011 that saw latest album "Leveler" debut at #11 on the Billboard charts, August Burns Red has shown an unwillingness to slow down, kicking off 2012 with headlining tours of North America, Japan and Australia and stops in New Zealand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Phillippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore along the way.

Now the band turns its sight firmly on Europe with the announcement of a string of festival and headlining dates throughout the summer that will see ABR hit 13 countries in 4 weeks before returning stateside to support Refused at Philadelphia's Riot Fest, followed by a return to South America.

"I can say with all sincerity that ABR has never looked forward to a European tour as much as we are looking forward to our upcoming run in June/July," says guitarist JB Brubaker. "We haven't done the 'festival circuit' since 2009 and that was one of our favorite overseas tours to date. I'm pumped to have the opportunity to play alongside some legendary bands and in front of some massive crowds!" More...
