‘August Burns Red’ Video Message Posted To UK Fans + European & South American Tour Dates


August Burns Red have posted a special video message to UK fans ahead of their UK tour alongside The Devil Wears Prada and Whitechapel. What nice boys they are!

Leveler, which sold around 29,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 11 on The Billboard 200 chart. Leveler was released on June 21. 2011 via Solid State Records. The effort was made available in both regular and deluxe editions — a first for the band.

For LevelerAugust Burns Red  re-teamed with producer Jason Suecof, the man behind the board on the band’s previous CD, 2009′s Constellations, which landed at No. 24 on The Billboard 200 and sold more than 90,000 copies. The result is an album that pushes the band’s sonic boundaries in every direction, yet emerges as an unquestionably heavier album than its predecessor.

“Putting out a fourth record is a little scary because we obviously have our sound figured out at this point, but we don’t want to put out a record that just sounds like a redux of our previous albums,” explains JB Brubaker. “Our tastes are always evolving as musicians and we’ve been motivated to progress as a band and push ABR in different directions, while maintaining the characteristics that made us the band we are in the first place.”

While August Burns Red has never succumbed to the artistic trends in metal album covers, Leveler represents an even larger departure than fans have seen on the band’s previous albums. The artwork, created by artist Jordan Crane, brings a striking comic book flair that the band wanted the artwork to encompass.
