Brent Rambler, guitarist for August Burns Red, will be missing any immediate tour dates in Europe for the birth of his son. He posted the following on the band’s Facebook:

Hey Everyone!

As some of you may know, my wife and I are expecting our first baby VERY soon. Because of this I have decided to sit out this European tour, so I can be home to help my wife during the last few weeks of her pregnancy and ensure that I’m present when my son is born.

HOWEVER, do not worry, as my guitar playing duties have been left in the very capable and very shreddy hands of Mr. Justin Huffman.(ex – I, The Breather) Justin has been friends with the band for a very long time, and he’s been practicing these songs since April, so everything will sound awesome for our amazing fans overseas. Heck, he even kind of looks like me.

I will make my triumphant return to the band for our North American Headlining tour, which starts November 1st at the Union Transfer in Philadelphia, but in the mean time please show Justin an awesome time!

My wife and I can’t wait to welcome our baby into this world, and I hope that all of our European fans have a blast over the next 3 weeks!

I wish I could be there, and I’ll see you next time!!
Brent

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.

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."
