2009 was a banner year for metal’s newest royalty, AUGUST BURNS RED. The band’s third album, Constellations, bowed in July to both stellar press and impressive sales numbers – debuting at #24 on the Billboard Top 200, and subsequently selling more than 66,000 copies. The album’s praises were sung by tastemaking publications such as Revolver, AP, Outburn and more, further solidifying the ABR’s stature.

With that momentum, the band is charging into 2010, a year AUGUST BURNS RED will spend on the road pleasing existing fans and converting new ones night after night. To that end, the band is excited to announce a North American run in support of A DAY TO REMEMBER. Joining the two are openers SILVERSTEIN, ENTER SHIKARI and VEARA (from March 41-April 18) and GO RADIO (April 19-May 16).   The tour marks ABR’s first North American dates in the new year, coming on the heels of a extensive European romp with powerhouse LAMB OF GOD. The 40 date trek hits 38 cities and includes back-to-back nights in key markets Chicago and Atlanta.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

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."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
