“We are all extremely excited to be a part of the Fearless family. Fearless has done an amazing job building a community within the label as well as a bunch of our friends bands and careers. We can’t wait to see what they can do with ABR. I am about 5 songs deep into writing the new record and I feel like it’s some of the most creative and heavy stuff we have ever written. 2015 is gonna be a great year for August Burns Red! See you on the road!” – JB Brubaker, Guitarist.
Fearless Records president, Chris Foitle said, “Our team could not be happier with ABR‘s decision to join Fearless. We’ve watched this band continue to raise the bar with each release, solidifying themselves as one of the most relevant and influential bands in the scene. Their songwriting, work ethic, and attitude are the perfect fit for Fearless, and we’re looking forward to a very bright future with them.”
Since their formation in 2003, the local upstart from Lancaster, PA has evolved into one of the biggest names worldwide in the modern metal scene, continually growing and connecting fiercely with a colossal legion of fans. August Burns Red have spent years skilfully crafting a balance between a ferociously heavy sound with empowering lyrical content, whilst showcasing a rich surplus of inventive guitar riffs, blistering solos, and dynamic drumming.
With a solid collection of 5 previous albums, Thrill Seeker (2005), Messengers (2007), Constellations (2009), Leveler (2011), the band’s latest release Rescue & Restore (2013) rocketed to the top of the Billboard charts – debuting at #9 on the Billboard Top 200. The road to the top has seen the band on stages across the globe alongside the likes of Underoath, A Day To Remember, Lamb Of God, Bring Me The Horizon, from South America, to Australia, Japan, and Russia, and headlining the Vans Warped Tour 2013.
