August Burns Red
Music extends a helping hand even under the most extreme circumstances. It offers reprieve and relief from any trials and tribulations. Upholding artistic pillars of tightly wound technical proficiency, airtight grooves, and pensive lyricism, August Burns Red fortify a sense of sanctuary on their eighth full-length album, Guardians [Fearless Records]. The two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated Pennsylvania quintet—JB Brubaker [lead guitar], Brent Rambler [rhythm guitar], Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs [lead vocals], and Dustin Davidson [bass]—rally around this thematic refuge on eleven tracks.
