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.
