August Burns Red Announces New European Tour Dates

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!"
