‘a heady beast, armed with technical wizardry and impressive energy’ KERRANG!
‘crushingly heavy… technically advanced in a way that’s leagues above much of this genre’ Rock Sound
Manheim’s metalcore giants August Burns Red are to embark on their greatest, most epic tour of the UK and Europe to date. As if this news was already overwhelming enough, the band will be brining support from the finest as The Devil Wears Prada and Whitechapel will be along for the ride.
This will be August Burns Red’s first UK tour since the band blew the roof off loads of venues including Rock City last November on the Eastpak Antidote tour. Now the band will be coming back for a full scale month long metal assault on the continent and our senses.
August Burns Red’s last two albums have had huge success in the US, with break out album Constellations reaching #24 in the US Billboard charts and 2011’s colossal follow up Leveler reaching #11. The bands reach is now extending into Europe where they’re steadily winning over fans with their meticulous and ferocious live performance. This weekend they played to thousands from the second stage at Download Festival. The size and enthusiasm of the crowd was a testament to just how popular this band really are.
August Burns Red are in their element on the stage and are certainly not a band to be missed. Soon enough you won’t be able to ignore them. Catch them on any of the following dates below.
