August Burns Red is wrapping up their year with some of the biggest news they have received in their career: a Grammy nomination. Their song “Identity” off of Found in Far Away Places is nominated for best metal performance alongside Ghost, Lamb of God, Sevendust and Slipknot.

While the award committee typically gives the prize to the most commercial friendly nomination (remember when Macklemore beat out Kendrick Lamar two years ago?), it’s still exciting to see August Burns Red hit one of the highest achievements in modern music. Best of luck, guys.
