November 8, 2007
Fresh off of a crushing tour with Unearth which saw August Burns Red zig-zagging across the country the Lancaster, PA natives will get right back to it. On November 29th August Burns Red will embark on a three week tour with Between the Buried and Me and BeholdThe Arctopus.

The band will be continuing to bring new material from there hit album, 'Messengers', to the fans all over the country. Messengers has sold over 33,000 copies already which means in just four months it has nearly outsold August Burns Red previous release 'Thrillseeker'. The band took a different approach in writing this album and wrote more of it as a group and it shows in the solid sound from the album. Guitarist JB Brubaker had this to say, I think it sounds like us, but its more mature and musicianship-wise its way better. Its much more technical. I think it really shows how far weve come.
