A Christian metalcore band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. August Burns Red isn't just another generic band in the dying metalcore genre. The music itself features technical time signatures, complex drumming, and impressive guitarwork. Their 2007 album, Messengers, features many cymbal-heavy breakdowns.
August Burns Red, despite coming out onto stage in cargo shorts and flip-flops, know how to put on a good show and deliver bonejarring breakdowns.

Jan 18 Word of the Day
1. Blue Monday is the most depressing day of the year, calculated by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a researcher at the University of Cardiff's Center for Lifelong Learning.
Factors used to calculate the date included weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivation and feeling the need to take action.

In 2005 the date was calculated as January 24th, in 2006 it was January 23rd, and in 2007 it was January 22nd.

2. A song by the hard rock band Orgy from their album Candy Ass.
1. Guy: "Aw man, I feel like absolute shit today."
Friend: "Yeah, same here. I hate Blue Monday."

2. "I wish I could sing Blue Monday to my ex-girlfriend, she's such a bitch."

A band formed in Lancaster, PA with my favorite drummer in the world, Matt Greiner. They feature guitar riffs in insane time signatures, such as 13/4, 7/8, and 5/4, with insanely fast syncopated drumming. Jake Luhrs, the vocalist, has a voice that made my balls drop.

Not only are they an amazing band, but they also are great guys. I talked to them for 20 minutes before their concert, and they were funny, awesome guys. Not to mention, they're all devout Christians. :)
"Dude do you listen to August Burns Red?" - guy 1

"No dude" - guy 2

"Go to the final breakdown of Back Burner and listen." - guy 1

No response from guy 2 because he died from epicness of song.

August Burns Red is a metalcore band founded in Pennsylvania in 2003. they get their name from one of the band names' ex's, august, threatening to burn his dog, red.
currently have 2 full lengths out and one ep.
Looks Fragile After All- 2004
Thrill Seeker- 2005
Messengers- 2007

a lot of their lyrics are mainly christian, and their playing style is mainly technical, with a lot of breakdowns during songs.
vocals are mostly growls and screams, along with a few clean singing. sorta hard to understand really.
