August Burns Red‘s new song “Paramount” can be streamed below. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming eighth full-length album, “Guardians”, which will be released on April 3 via Fearless Records.

‘Paramount’ is one of my favorite songs from ‘Guardians’,” says guitarist JB Brubaker. “It has that classic ABR sound with a bunch of tempo changes and different time signatures. But there’s a recurring melody that glues the whole song together. I think this is a song that longtime fans of the band are going to love.”

Drummer Matt Greiner adds: “At times over the last several years, I felt indifferent and uninterested towards the things that used to fuel me. I learned there is actually meaning in suffering. It’s not random and without purpose. I found that the more I faced the fire, the more empathetic I became towards other people who are also hurting. I found meaning in the pain and stopped running from it. That’s what ‘Paramount’ is about.”

‘Guardians’ is the culmination of a complete and total team effort,” says Brubaker. “Dustin and I collaborated musically more than we ever have before. Jake and Brent collaborated vocally more than they ever have before. Matt bounced more drum ideas off of us than we could even comprehend.

August Burns Red has announced a new EP called “Phantom Sessions” and released a video for the first track, a cover of ‘The Legend Of Zelda’.

Bassist Dustin Davidson says the following about the cover:

“For the cover, I wanted to do a mash-up of not only the original theme, but other pieces from the game as well, and since the dungeon theme flirts with the diminished scale, it just made sense to put it into a metal cover.”

“Out of all of the games that I played growing up, I easily logged the most time into Zelda. My brother and I would come home from school, race to finish our homework and fight over who got to play.” Continue reading »
