AUGUST BURNS RED stream new single ‘Paramount’

From Guardians LP, released 3rd April via Fearless Records

AUGUST BURNS RED have released their new single ‘Paramount’, another glimpse into their highly anticipated eighth full-length, Guardians, out 3rd April on Fearless Records.

And pre-order the record here: 

“‘Paramount’ is one of my favorite songs from Guardians,” says lead guitarist JB Brubaker. “It has that classic ABR sound with a bunch of tempo changes and different time signatures. But there’s a recurring melody that glues the whole song together. I think this is a song that longtime fans of the band are going to love.”

Drummer Matt Greiner further explains, “At times over the last several years, I felt indifferent and uninterested towards the things that used to fuel me. I learned there is actually meaning in suffering. It’s not random and without purpose. I found that the more I faced the fire, the more empathetic I became towards other people who are also hurting. I found meaning in the pain and stopped running from it. That’s what ‘Paramount’ is about.”

The two-time GRAMMY Award-nominated Pennsylvania quintet have been upholding the artistic pillars of technical proficiency, airtight grooves, and thoughtful lyricism in the hard rock world for 17 years now, and return with their most cohesive and collaborative album to date.

Following the seminal Messengers [2007] and Constellations [2009], August
Burns Red infiltrated the mainstream via 2015’s Found In Far Away Places. The
latter stood out as their second straight #9 bow on the Billboard Top 200, in
addition to garnering the group its first GRAMMY® Award nomination in the
category of ” Best Metal Performance” for “Identity.” The momentum increased
with the arrival of Phantom Anthem in 2017. Marking the group’s fourth Top 20
debut on the Billboard Top 200, it paved the way for their second “Best Metal
Performance” GRAMMY® nod for “Invisible Enemy.” The record ushered their
career streams past the 100 million-mark as it earned four-out-of-five stars
from the likes of Alternative Press and Kerrang! Between sold-out shows
worldwide, ABR continued a 15-year tradition of holiday shows by launching
the Christmas Burns Red Festival. Now, their 2020 eighth full-length, Guardians
[Fearless Records], sees them not only preserve but perfect their DNA-distinct
and definitive sound.
