August Burns Red are currently preparing a new album due for release sometime next year. Furthermore, this will be the band's first album released on Fearless Records. After releasing their previous six albums with Solid State Records, the band opted for a change. God is stoked.
Here are some excerpts from the press release accompanying the news.
Guitarist JB Brubaker: "We are all extremely excited to be a part of the Fearless family. Fearless has done an amazing job building a community within the label as well as a bunch of our friends bands and careers. We can't wait to see what they can do with ABR. I am about 5 songs deep into writing the new record and I feel like it's some of the most creative and heavy stuff we have ever written. 2015 is gonna be a great year for August Burns Red! See you on the road!"
Fearless Records president, Chris Foitle had the following to say: "Our team could not be happier with ABR's decision to join Fearless. We've watched this band continue to raise the bar with each release, solidifying themselves as one of the most relevant and influential bands in the scene. Their songwriting, work ethic, and attitude are the perfect fit for Fearless, and we're looking forward to a very bright future with them."
