Brand of Sacrifice, Spite, and Crystal lake will serve as special guests
August Burns Red are hitting the road again this fall to commemorate the tenth anniversary of their album Rescue & Restore. The trek begins on November 10 at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusettes and wraps up with their Christmas Burns Red celebration on December 8 and December 9 in their native Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Special guests for the run will be Brand of Sacrifice, Spite, and Crystal Lake.
“In celebration of Rescue & Restore turning ten years old we’ll be playing the entire album across North America this November and December,” the band said on social media. “We can’t wait to play one of our all-time favorite albums for you!”
August Burns Red’s sixth studio effort Rescue & Restore arrived on June 25, 2013 via Solid State Records. The album debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart. The record was powered by the lead single “Spirit Breaker” and standout tracks “Fault Line,” “Beauty in Tragedy,” and “Provision.”
August Burns Red released their latest album Death Below back in March via SharpTone Records. It marked the band’s first released with the label. The album features several special guest performances from the likes of Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage), Jason Richardson (ex-Born of Osiris, ex-Chelsea Grin), JT Cavey (ERRA), and Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath).
“It’s no secret that the past few years have been extremely dark and challenging,” says lead guitarist JB Brubaker said. “Death Below is here as a result of that time in each our lives and the emotions that came with it. We were motivated by uncertainty, fear, outrage, and triumph. I feel this is the darkest, most personal album we’ve ever written, and I couldnt be more proud of what the five of us made together.”
