After the abortion that was Design the Skyline, here is your palette cleanser – and it’s a great one indeed. Everyone’s favorite Lancaster, PA outfit August Burns Red has released a new track “Empire“, the first track from their upcoming album Leveler, and it brings the same flavor we’ve come to know and love from August Burns Red. Found within are breakdown-esque polyrhythms in odd time signatures, catchy vocal delivery, awesome leads, and probably one of the most inspiring, anthemic sections that August Burns Red have ever done. This is must-listen.
Leveller is out June 21st on Solid State Records.
