Rev up those excitebikes, because August Burns Red have began writing their fifth studio album! Matt Greiner has begun writing his drum tracks for the new album, which leads one to believe guitars are mostly done, at least with the basic riffs. Sounds about right; it’s been nearly 2 years since Leveler and the band always sticks to that sort of release cycle. I, for one, am stoked. ABR are among my favorite metalcore bands, and they have this weird way of mixing heavy riffs with awesome leads on top that really make them stand out from the rest.
We will have more news on this story as it develops, but until then, here’s a little refresher on how awesome they are.
