New Music Friday: August Burns Red

Today, Lancaster, PA’s August Burns Red release their new album, Phantom Anthem – the follow-up to 2015’s Found In Far Away Places, which earned the band a GRAMMY nomination for Best Metal Performance. The album is available now at AugustBurnsRed.com.

August Burns Red recently wrapped up their European headline tour for the 10-year anniversary tour of their much-loved album, Messengers (2007), and will be touring North America through the fall. Full tour dates below.

Embracing a diehard Rust Belt work ethic, they tirelessly pushed towards the top of heavy music with a series of critically acclaimed albums and countless gigs. A hard-earned high watermark, 2015’s Found In Far Away Places marked their second consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200.

 When it came time to record their seventh full-length, Phantom Anthem [Fearless Records], with longtime producers, Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland, the game didn’t change. The musicians put their heads down and rallied around the same shared goal, uncorking a barrage of infectious intensity, the boys augmented and amplified the touchstones of their signature style on Phantom Anthem. The musical equivalent of a clenched fist haymaker, the grooves hit harder, the hooks blaze brighter, and the instrumentation ignites even more intricacy.
