August Burns Red share video for new single ‘Backfire’ off new album ‘Death Below’

August Burns Red

Grammy-nominated Lancaster five-piece August Burns Red — JB Brubaker (lead guitar), Brent Rambler (rhythm guitar), Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs (vocals), and Dustin Davidson (bass) — have a big year in front of them. The band will drop its new album Death Below on March 24 via SharpTone Records. Pre-order Death Below here. Today, they have dropped the video for the new single Backfire.

“Backfire is song that musically is a punch in the face, and we wrote the lyrics to follow suit,” says ABR. “The song is about choosing who you follow wisely, and not allowing people you’ve never met to influence the decisions you make in life. Backfire ticks all the boxes when it comes to an ABR song.”

The album features additional guest spots from guitarist Jason Richardson, as well as Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage, JT Cavey of ERRA, and Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath.

ABR will also embark on the 20 Year Anniversary Tour, during which they will play material off all nine of their albums as they hit North America. The first leg of the tour kicks off on February 15, with supports from The Devil Wears Prada, and Scottish band Bleed From Within, who are touring the U.S. for the first time.
