August Burns Red Guardians Vinyl 2LP
August Burns Red have been upholding the artistic pillars of technical proficiency, airtight grooves, and thoughtful lyricism in the hard rock world for 17 years now.
The two time Grammy Award-nominated Pennsylvania quintet show no signs of slowing down with their eighth full length, Guardians, which the band calls their most truly collaborative effort to date.
"Guardians is the culmination of a complete and total team effort," says JB Brubaker. "Dustin and I collaborated musically more than we ever have before. Jake and Brent collaborated vocally more than they ever have before. Matt bounced more drum ideas off of us than we could even comprehend. It was the most time we've ever spent in the studio on one album. We're all so proud of this record, and we can't wait to share it with the world."
Guardians remains true to August Burns Red's heavy sound; 11 tracks that have a common theme of helping others. "The song ‘Defender' is about having that person who can come in and take some punches for you, and be in your corner during hard times," says Brent Rambler.
"I am quite the comic book fan and I thought the lyrics could easily turn into an awesome animated short story – kind of like if the pages of a comic were to come to life.."
