AUGUST BURNS RED’s ‘Leveler’ in Stores Today – Headlining 2011 Warped Tour
After weeks of teasing fans with new songs from their highly anticipated fourth album, Leveler, genre giants AUGUST BURNS RED are proud to unleash the beast of an album on the public.
Over the last 5 weeks, the band revealed four standout tracks from Leveler that built anticipation for the new album to a fever pitch. Old and new fans alike eagerly consumed the new material, racking up more than two-thirds of a million plays across various platforms.
“The biggest risk we took on this album was not limiting ourselves to stay inside the standard metalcore box,” explains Brubaker. “If there was a part that didn’t sound like a traditional metalcore part we ran with it and made it as wild or unorthodox as we wanted. I think that’s one of the advantages to being on your fourth album. We have a dedicated group of listeners who are supportive of us trying new things and breaking some of the unwritten rules of metal. It’s a luxury we are very thankful for and do not take for granted.”
AUGUST BURNS RED will take to the road as a mainstage act on this summer’s Van’s Warped Tour, which will deliver them to almost every major market in North America to bring Leveler‘s sonic spectacle directly to fans.
