August Burns Red Offer Limited Edition Baseball Cards – Exclusive Premiere

Solid State

The Pennsylvania metalcore behemoth known as August Burns Red is offering packs of exclusive ABR baseball cards for fans who pre-order their new album, ‘Leveler,’ which is out June 21st. Noisecreep is proud to give our readers an exclusive sneak peak at the cards, which feature bandmember photos, stats and fun facts.

“The idea for ABR baseball cards came from the marketing team at Solid State Records, as a bonus for people who pre-order our new record, ‘Leveler,’” guitarist JB Brubaker recently told Noisecreep. “Knowing that there are some pretty big baseball fans in the band, he knew we’d be down with the idea.” Veteran Noisecreep readers should be more than familiar with Brubaker’s passion for the Philadelphia Phillies.

ABR took great care to make the cards as realistic as possible, all the while adhering to their signature ABR flair. “We shot all the team photos at a park in Seattle, and all the live photos later that night at El Corazon,” Brubaker said. “Our crew guys are some of our best friends in the world, and very much a part of the ABR team, so we wanted to include them as well.

“We had a blast taking the photos for the cards. It was easily the most entertaining photo shoot we’ve ever done. We also had fun writing up our facts and information for the back of the cards. I was a big baseball card collector growing up and I’m so stoked on these ABR cards and how legit they are. They came out awesome! They’re probably my favorite non-music related item we’ve ever made.”

The “facts” and “stats” will help fans get to know their favorite members of ABR even more intimately. The cards reveal who was able to grow a beard by the age of 16, whose favorite airport layover pastime is trying to annoy a fellow band member, and who did an entire tour in a cast due to a broken ankle.
