‘August Burns Red’ Animated Video Released For ‘Flurries’, European Tour Dates


August Burns Red‘s new holiday album August Burns Red presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album was released last week on Oct. 9th via Solid State Records.  Check out the new animated video for the band’s original holiday song Flurries. The video can be seen below.

The 13-track release features not only fresh takes on classics such as “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland” and even “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer,” but also original compositions that are destined to become future headbanging holiday favorites.

The album also compiles remixed and remastered versions of the band’s previous holiday hits, like “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Little Drummer Boy.” Rounding out the collection is an updated version of the band’s rendition of “Carol of the Bells,” heard in Frank Miller’s [300, Sin City] movie, The Spirit and Seth MacFarlane’s [Family Guy] American Dad. On whether Sleddin’ Hill is destined to become a novelty album or a key part of the band’s discography, guitarist JB Brubaker says, “To some, the concept of a metal Christmas album may come off as silly and a waste of time, but I think this record has plenty of original August Burns Red substance to interest even the biggest Scrooges out there.
