Every time August Burns Red record an album, the Grammy Award-Nominated Pennsylvania quintet- John “JB” Brubaker (lead guitar), Brent Rambler (rhythm guitar), Matt Greiner (drums), Jake Luhrs (lead vocals), and Dustin Davidson (bass)- push themselves harder, raise expectations, and reach a new level. It’s why they’ve become a heavy music torchbearer. In 2015, Found in Faraway Places marked their second consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200. The single “identity” notched a Grammy Award nod in the category of “Best Metal Performance.” A streaming juggernaut, both “Identity” and “Ghosts” (feat. Jeremy McKinnon) crossed the 3-million mark on Spotify. When it came time to record their eighth full-length Phantom Anthem, the game didn’t change. The musicians put their heads down and rallied around the same shared goal, upping the ante across the board. The musical equivalent of a clenched fist haymaker, the grooves hit harder, the hooks blaze brighter, and the instrumentation ignites even more intricacy as evidenced by lead singles “Invisible Enemy” and “The Frost.” Don’t miss August Burns Red at Newport Music Hall on February 20th!
