AUGUST BURNS RED’s yet-untitled fifth album is due later this summer on Solid State Records. The band will be hitting the road as a mainstage act on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour, marking their third appearance on the venerated annual event, where they were last seen in performing in support of their 2011 album, Leveler.

With four successful albums under their belts and their fifth album – which guitarist JB Brubaker has described as the band’s “most ambitious album yet” – forthcoming, AUGUST BURNS RED have successfully earned veteran status. One of the leading forces in the modern metal scene, the Manheim, PA-based quintet has breathed new life into the metalcore genre over the course of their almost decade-long career, successfully transitioning from shake-up-the-field upstarts to one of the biggest names worldwide in the genre.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
