JimJim of Access: Rock conducted an interview with the Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based Christian metalcore quintet AUGUST BURNS RED before the band’s November 5 concert at Fryshuset/Kubben in Stockholm, Sweden with THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and WHITECHAPEL. You can now watch the chat below.
After releasing an amped-up cover of a holiday classic in each of the past four years, AUGUST BURNS RED issued a full-length Christmas album, “August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album”, on October 9 via Solid State Records. The 13-track release features not only fresh takes on classics such as “Jingle Bells”, “Winter Wonderland” and even “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer”, but also original compositions that are destined to become future headbanging holiday favorites. The album also compiles remixed and remastered versions of the band’s previous holiday hits, like “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Little Drummer Boy”. Rounding out the collection is an updated version of the band’s rendition of “Carol Of The Bells”, heard in Frank Miller‘s (“300”, “Sin City”) movie “The Spirit” and Seth MacFarlane‘s (“Family Guy”) “American Dad”.
