August Burns Red Streaming "Sleigh Ride" Track Off Upcoming Christmas Album

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."

Listen to “Sleigh Ride” in the player below, or you can find pre-orders for the album at this location.

WHAT was that?
Sorry but are they trying to destroy what little cred they had?
Ummm…did they have any to start with?
I’m not familiar with their music but this was painful.
Elevators around the globe will malfunction playing this.
Only one metal legend can get away with holiday music.
King Diamond.
Halloween, No Presents….it works.
This doesn’t…not even as a joke.
