August Burns Red is a metalcore band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The band formed in March 2003 while some of the members were still in high school,[1] and soon began playing shows around Lancaster. The band name is derived from an incident regarding the relationship breakdown of a former member and his girlfriend.[1] The band cites Between the Buried and Me, Misery Signals and Hopesfall as their main influences.[1]

History

In 2004, the band was signed to CI Records and released an EP called Looks Fragile After All. After about another year of playing shows,and a change in vocalist the band was signed to Solid State Records in 2005 and released Thrill Seeker on November 8 of that year.In 2006 drummer Matt Greiner was endorsed by Truth Custom Drums.

Their latest album, Messengers, was released on June 19, 2007. It has sold over 45,000 copies thus far,[2] and has peaked at #81 on the Billboard 200.

From April to May 2008, August Burns Red toured with As I Lay Dying and Misery Signals.[3]

The band toured from August 29 to October 12, 2008 with A Skylit Drive, Sky Eats Airplane, Greeley Estates, and This or the Apocalypse. August Burns Red headlined the tour.

The band will also visit the UK for 6 days on a headlining tour in Belfast,Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, London, and Newport in November 2008.

After touring Europe the band is planning to record their third studio album, which is due to release by the spring or summer of 2009. In an interview they also stated they would be interested in releasing a Christmas album[citation needed].

Christian faith

Although August Burns Red's music is often defined as Christian metalcore,[4][5] JB Brubaker mentioned in an interview with Shout!, an online magazine, that "Christian is a religion and not a style of music," and he would "rather just let the music speak for itself."[2] However, Brent Rambler commented on the fact that "It is important to us that people know that we are indeed Christians...without having us stand up there and ram it down peoples throats."[6]
