STREAM: August Burns Red – “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”

August Burns Red has released their annual Christmas time song for 2011, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”. Now I know is it a special thing to do each year but for me personally I would love it if these guy’s released a full length Christmas album. But until that Christmas wish comes true, we’ll keep enjoying their Christmas gifts they keep leaving us in our stockings each year.

Band: August Burns Red
From: Lancaster, PA
Formed: 2003

From the 2009 Album Constellations

I used to be so young and invincible
The mistakes of my youth are finally catching up to me
The face that stares back in the mirror should carry nothing but pride
As the days go by, it’s getting harder to hold my head up high
I’ve never been so tired
I’ve never felt so weak, but I swear to you that I’m not giving up
My storied life is coming to a graceful descent
I’ve seen peace end and battles begin
I won’t forget the lives I touched
I won’t forget the life I know
As the days go by, it’s getting harder to hold my head up high
I used to think I’d last forever
I’m praying for the light to just carry me away
Say goodnight
Say goodbye
This is my time to be with my lord

August Burns Red: In the Studio

I realize this is somewhat late, but oh well.

Mid-February, Pennsylvania metalcore band August Burns Red announced that they would be going into the studio to record their fourth full-length album that has yet to be titled. Guitarist JB Brubaker led the interview held by AP Magazine. He said they were trying for something different than anything they’ve tried before, considering bands tend to get more bland and uninteresting as they progress through their musical career. Brubaker told interviewers that drummer Matt Greiner actually wrote a significantly emotional song about how their hometown came together after a fatal car accident. Another song on the upcoming album consists of a “classical” section mid-song. Also, the band is possibly going to try gang vocals in the background of some songs, which should be interesting to hear. So, overall, ABR is going for a new feel and they’re very confident with it. I think it’s safe to say that this new August Burns Red album will be getting many listens by their fans come summertime. (Album to be released early summer via Solid State Records.)
