August Burns Red‘s third album, Constellations, turns 10 in 2019 and the band will celebrate by playing it on full on their 2019 headlining tour. Silverstein and Silent Planet will serve as the two supporting acts.

“We are very excited to bring everyone the 10 years of Constellations world tour,” said August Burns Red. “This is something that fans have been asking for, and we intend to deliver with the most ridiculous production and show we’ve ever put on. Constellations was an extremely important record for the members in the band, so we can’t wait to celebrate with you all!”

The North American run begins on June 20 and finishes up nearly two months later on Aug. 11. In the midst of their world tour, they’ll hit Hawaii later on in October.

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 »

August Burns Red has released the official Dan Fusselman-directed music video for the song ‘King Of Sorrow’. 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 »
