August Burns Red Streaming New Song "Spirit Breaker"

Two weeks ago August Burns Red let the world in on a first taste of the band's fifth full-length album, "Rescue & Restore," via a lyric video for scorching track “Fault Line.”

Today, August Burns Red is releasing the new track “Spirit Breaker.” In addition, ABR is also unveiling a free digital sampler of some of the band’s favorite tracks from previous releases. While “Spirit Breaker” is available to stream for everyone, only fans who sign up for the band’s mailing list will receive the sampler. Listen to "Spirit Breaker" and download the sampler over here.

"When picking songs to preview the album we wanted to share a variety of different songs as this album is pretty diverse,” explains guitarist JB Brubaker. “‘Spirit Breaker’ is one of the more melodic songs on Rescue & Restore and features one of my favorite clean sections on the album. It's not as heavy as the majority of the album but we feel like it still hits hard and has the potential to be a great live song."

“Rescue & Restore is about challenging other bands and ourselves, as well as fans of this music, to want more than whatever happens to be the current buzz,” explains Brubaker. “We’ve done our best with each new album to try to push our sound in new directions and we’d like to see our peers do the same. People need to realize that there’s not much of a difference between a metalcore song that has a couple breakdowns with a repeating chorus and the latest Lady Gaga song. This genre used to be better than that. It can still be better than that.”
