August Burns Red Gearing Up 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."
“This new record will push the boundaries of our genre more than we ever have before,” Brubaker continues excitedly. “We set out to write a record where every song stands out from the last. There is a lot of ground covered here and a ton of meat to this album. It's full of odd metered rhythms and breakdowns, unexpected twists and turns, and some of our most technical riffing to date. Each of us have parts that make our heads spin and we have had to practice like crazy to get some of this stuff together. I know we always say this, but this will be our most ambitious album yet.”
The band was recently announced as a mainstage act on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour, marking the group's third appearance on the venerated annual event. You can also check out the band's previously posted animated clip for "Frosty the Snowman" at this location.
