August Burns Red
AUGUST BURNS RED — JB Brubaker [lead guitar], Brent Rambler [rhythm guitar], Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs [lead vocals], and Dustin Davidson [bass] — released Leveler: 10th Anniversary Edition on May 21st 2021, and are gearing up to take it on the road in September/October. The band re-recorded its fourth album, which was originally released on June 21, 2011, with special guests, brand new guitar solos, alternate tunings, and more. Leveler: 10th Anniversary Edition was produced, mixed, and mastered by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio. The vinyl was mastered by Will Putney.
"Leveler is a record we've always been proud of, and we wanted to do something special for its ten-year anniversary," says Brubaker. "We've done some cool remix projects for previous albums when they've turned 10, but with Leveler, we decided to kick things up a notch. We dove into this record and dissected the songs, rewriting solos, changing the tunings, adding new textures and elements, and got a few of our friends to do some guest spots as well. Our longtime producers Carson Slovak and Grand McFarland handled the recording/mixing and helped us take Leveler to new sonic heights. I think this is the best-sounding ABR record we've ever made, and it's going to allow people to experience the record in a whole new way. I can't wait to share this with everyone.”
Upon release, Leveler was met with near-universal praise. All Music claimed, "This kind of contrast between light and dark makes Leveler a wonderfully dynamic album that is musically engaging." Revolver declared that "August Burns Red have set their own bar even higher...and have done so for all of the scene in the process." Decibel labeled it "adventurous without the proggy aftertaste," while Exclaim! deemed it the band's best. Outburn lauded the "all-new level of musicianship,"" awarding it a perfect 10 star rating.
Fit For A King
ERRA HAS MADE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES ON THEIR OWN TERMS. DETERMINATION AND STEADFAST DEDICATION HAVE DEFINED ERRA’S PATH, FORGING A UNIQUE CONNECTION WITH AN EVER-GROWING AUDIENCE, WITHOUT THE ADVANTAGES OF TRADITIONAL RECOGNITION. TITANIC RIFFS AND ENCHANTING MELODIES LITTER THE CEREBRAL, IMMERSIVE SOUNDSCAPES POWERING EACH OF THE PROGRESSIVE METAL MERCHANT’S ALBUMS, CULMINATING IN A CAREER-DEFINING FIFTH, BOLDLY TITLED ERRA.
NEW SONGS LIKE “SNOWBLOOD,” “HOUSE OF GLASS,” “DIVISIONARY,” AND “SHADOW AUTONOMOUS” CONJURE THE CRUSHING HEAVINESS AND SOARING MELODIC MIGHT OF FAN-FAVORITE ANTHEMS LIKE “BREACH,” “SKYLINE,” AND “EYE OF GOD,” WHILE BROADENING THE BAND’S REACH WITH MEDITATIVE EXPANSIVENESS, TRIPPY NEAR-PSYCHEDELIA, AND HAUNTING HOOKS.
ERRA WAS RECORDED, MIXED, AND MASTERED BY CARSON SLOVAK AND GRANT MCFARLAND, THE GRAMMY-NOMINATED DUO RESPONSIBLE FOR ESSENTIAL RECORDS FROM AUGUST BURNS RED AND FROM ASHES TO NEW. IT’S A DEFINITIVE MISSION STATEMENT FOR GUITARIST/VOCALIST JESSE CASH, VOCALIST J.T. CAVEY, DRUMMER ALEX BALLEW, BASSIST CONOR HESSE, AND GUITARIST SEAN PRICE, EACH OF THEM ALREADY WELL-RESPECTED PLAYERS REVERED FOR THEIR INSPIRING TECHNICALITY AND RAW, NATURAL TALENT.
THE DECISION TO SELF-TITLE THE ALBUM SUITS THE THEMES OF SELF-REFLECTION AND CONFRONTATION WOVEN THROUGHOUT THE RECORD’S MESMERIZING 12-SONGS. PREVIOUS ERRA ALBUMS IMPULSE (2012), AUGMENT (2013), DRIFT (2016), AND NEON (2018) SAW THE BAND SPOTLIGHTED ON TASTEMAKER PLAYLISTS, AS THE BAND’S SPOTIFY PLAYS SOARED PAST 72 MILLION.
“IT’S CLEARLY AN EVOLUTION OF THE SAME BAND, IT SOUNDS LIKE A RECORD WE WROTE, BUT IT’S SUCH A BIG STEP FORWARD FROM THE LAST ONE THAT IT SEEMED LIKE THE PERFECT TIME TO SELF-TITLE A RECORD,” CASH EXPLAINS. “PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING ERRA, WE WANTED TO GIVE THEM THE SENSE THAT WE’RE STARTING A NEW CHAPTER, WITH SOMETHING FRESH.”
CAVEY CONCURS. “WE’VE ALWAYS TRIED TO HAVE A BALANCE OF CLASSIC SONG STRUCTURES, INTERTWINED WITH EXPERIMENTAL ADVENTURES,” HE SAYS. “THIS ALBUM ESPECIALLY IS MUSIC WRITTEN FOR MUSICIANS THAT ALSO APPEALS TO THE MASSES. THERE ARE A LOT MORE BREAKDOWNS ON THIS RECORD, BUT ALSO BIGGER MELODIES. I PUT A LOT OF FOCUS ON SIMPLIFYING WHAT I’M DOING, PERSONALLY, TO MAKE THE SONGS MORE MEMORABLE. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WAS TO WRITE MUSIC WE ENJOY.”
FACEBOOK GROUPS AND HASHTAGS ORGANIZED AROUND THE BAND’S DENSE MUSIC AND HEADY BUT RELATABLE LYRICS HAVE HELPED FURTHER THE ERRA MISSION, RESULTING IN MULTIPLE NO. 1 HEATSEEKERS PLACEMENTS ON BILLBOARD. ERRA HAS TOURED THE WORLD WITH DANCE GAVIN DANCE, AUGUST BURNS RED, TESSERACT, AND THE ACACIA STRAIN, AMONG OTHERS. IT ALL RESULTED IN A WORLDWIDE AUDIENCE DEVOTED TO THE ALABAMA BASED BAND’S CATALOG, EAGER FOR EACH NEW MISSIVE.
ERRA CONFRONTS DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, AND DESPERATION THROUGHOUT THEIR NEW ALBUM. THEY TAKE LISTENERS ON A NEAR-OUT-OF-BODY JOURNEY TO THE INFAMOUS SUICIDE FOREST OF JAPAN; INTO EPISODIC STORYTELLING THAT WOULD MAKE BLACK MIRROR WRITERS PROUD; AND INTO THE LITERARY WORKS CORMAC MCCARTHY AND PLAYRIGHT/FILMMAKER DAVID MAMET.
“I WAS GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME, AFTER A BREAKUP, WHEN ANDY GLASS FROM WE CAME AS ROMANS TURNED ME ON TO ECKHART TOLLE,” CASH SHARES. “A LOT OF THE INFORMATION REALLY SEEMED TO STICK. MANY OF THE SONGS TALK ABOUT BEING PRESENT, BEING CONSCIOUS, WITHOUT SOUNDING FORCED OR CONTRIVED, OR LIKE STANDARD OPTIMISTIC METALCORE CLICHES.”
THE ALBUM OPENS WITH A VIVID PICTURE OF HORROR IN “SNOWBLOOD.” “DIVISIONARY” DRAWS A DISTURBING PARALLEL BETWEEN TECHNOLOGY AND RELIGION. “HOUSE OF GLASS” TOUCHES ON SELF-HARM, ZEALOUSNESS, AND RECONCILING WITH THE LOSS OF AN ABANDONED IDEOLOGY. THERE IS A DUALITY IN “SHADOW AUTONOMOUS.” PHYSICS, VICES, CULTURAL DIVIDES, AND EVEN THE TALE OF TWO LOVERS CAN BE FOUND ELSEWHERE ON ERRA. (THE MAJORITY OF THE ALBUM’S LYRICS WERE PENNED BY PRIMARY SONGWRITER CASH, WITH JT HANDLING ALL OF “EIDOLON.”) “MEMORY FICTION” IS INSPIRED BY CASH’S FAVORITE CORMAC MCCARTHY QUOTE: “HE THOUGHT EACH MEMORY RECALLED MUST DO SOME VIOLENCE TO ITS ORIGINS. AS IN A PARTY GAME. SAY THE WORDS AND PASS IT ON. SO BE SPARING. WHAT YOU ALTER IN THE REMEMBERING HAS YET A REALITY, KNOWN OR NOT.”
THE DOWN-TUNED ATMOSPHERE OF DEFTONES AND TOOL ARE CENTRAL INGREDIENTS, ALONGSIDE THE INVENTIVENESS OF NINE INCH NAILS AND THE URGENCY OF NORTHLANE AND ARCHITECTS. THE MELODIC SIDE OF THE BAND OFTEN DRAWS FAVORABLE COMPARISONS TO CIRCA SURVIVE AND SAOSIN. ALL OF THESE COMPONENTS ARE FILTERED THROUGH ERRA’S UNIQUE SENSIBILITY AND EXPERIENCE, RESULTING IN A SINGULAR CREATIVE IDENTITY BOTH WARMLY FAMILIAR AND REFRESHINGLY FORWARD-THINKING.
“MOST OF OUR FANS KNOW THAT I WASN’T COMPLETELY HAPPY WITH OUR LAST RECORD. I WANTED IT TO BE BETTER,” CASH ADMITS. “I WAS STRUGGLING TO GET THROUGH IT, A BIT. BEING IN THE RIGHT HEADSPACE THIS TIME AROUND WAS JUST HUGE. IT CHANGED EVERYTHING. MAKING THIS RECORD WAS JUST FUN. THERE WAS NO REAL STRESS INVOLVED IN IT FOR US. IT WAS A BLAST.”
“BY NATURE, ERRA’S MUSIC IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT THAN MOST METALCORE BANDS, BECAUSE WE ARE STILL PRETTY DAMN COMPLICATED,” CAVEY ADDS, WITH A LAUGH. “THESE SONGS ARE STILL NOT EASY TO PLAY. BUT WE PUT LESS PRESSURE ON OURSELVES TO BE CRAZY [TECHNICAL]. I MADE SURE A LOT OF MOMENTS ON THIS NEW ALBUM ARE JUST COOL AND CATCHY.”
AS THEIR MUSIC FINDS THE BALANCE BETWEEN THE CRUSHINGLY HEAVY AND THE HEADILY MELODIC, ITS MEMBERS SEEK TO FIND HARMONY BETWEEN THE NEEDS OF THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE NATURAL FLOW OF THIS SHARED REALITY. ERRA, AS A BAND OF BROTHERS AND CREATIVE FORCE, STRIVE TO LIVE IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE PRESENT MOMENT. ERRA, THE ALBUM, REPRESENTS REDEMPTION FOR THE BAND, WHO EMERGED FROM THE CREATIVE PROCESS WITH RENEWED FOCUS AND CONFIDENCE, OF CERTAINTY AND SELF. ERRA IS PART MILD-ALTERING SUBSTANCE, PART MEDITATION, REVELING IN EACH MUSICAL MOMENT OF EXULTATION.
