The track is taken from the band’s seventh full-length album, “Phantom Anthem”, which came out last October via Fearless Records. The follow-up to 2015’s “Found In Far Away Places” was recorded with longtime producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland.

Guitarist Brent Rambler told AXS about August Burns Red‘s relationship with Slovak and McFarland: “We like working with them, because they are our friends and want the band to successful, so they aren’t afraid to give us ideas and tell us if something should change. Also, Grant is a great vocal producer and helps tremendously in the studio when we track vocals. They grew up listening to a lot of the same music as we did, so we have very similar tastes in music, which really helps for those out of the box moments in our songs. Their studio is literally a six-block walk from my house, so that’s also nice.” Continue reading »

August Burns Red carry on with their holiday tradition posting the below cover of Wham!‘s ‘Last Christmas’. Check it out:

Says bassist Dustin Davidson of the song:

“This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic, and shredtastic. When I decided to cover ‘Last Christmas‘ I kept in mind that most people only know the chorus of the song. I didn’t want to recreate something word for word, or note by note, so I took the main hook and built a bunch of original ideas around it. The lyrics to Wham!‘s ‘Last Christmas‘ are very sad, so if you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, I hope this cover finds you well.” Continue reading »
