|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Genre giants AUGUST BURNS RED have solidified plans to enter the studio February 14th to record their currently untitled fourth album. The band will re-team with metal mastermind Jason Suecof at his Audio Hammer Studios outside of Orlando, FL.
Suecof is no stranger to ABR’s highly influential brand of metalcore, as he was the man behind the board for Constellations, the band’s 2009 breakout hit that made waves when it landed at #24 on the Billboard Top 200. The band’s third album – whose sales have soared past 90,000 – established in no uncertain terms that AUGUST BURNS RED was a leader of its genre, a band that was quietly outselling, outdrawing and garnering more praise than peers who’ve been gracing magazine covers for years. Only suddenly, it wasn’t so quiet anymore. The fans and critics have spoken – loudly.
“We can’t wait to get back to Florida to start recording with Suecof,” says guitarist and principle songwriter JB Brubaker. “We’re just about finished writing and it’s shaping up to be a huge sounding album. I can’t ever recall feeling this excited to get started when getting ready for past albums.”
The currently untitled album is set for release this summer, details to be announced.
On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."Full Feature More from Tigerwine
