August Burns Red Set to Release ‘Leveler,’ Play Warped Tour
Pennsylvania’s nastiest metalcore band August Burns Red — and when we say nasty, we’re speaking of the music, not the people — will release their new album, ‘Leveler,’ on June 21st. The band once again recorded with metal producer Jason Suecof, who also manned the boards for their 2009 album ‘Constellations.’
“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,” said guitarist JB Brubaker in a statement. “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.”
August Burns Red will be a featured main stage attraction at this summer’s Warped Tour. Brubaker, a noted Philadelphia Phillies fan, plans to spend his free time while on tour visiting baseball stadiums.
“We can’t wait for our new album to drop on June 21st,” Brubaker told Noisecreep. “Warped starts a couple days after, and we’re looking forward to playing some new jams on that tour as well as visiting as many baseball stadiums as possible across America.”
