About August Burns Red

Guitarist Brent Rambler strives to write inspiring lyrics in an effort to counter the perception that metalcore bands sing only about “violence or devil worship or dragons.” ∙ Their 2015 release, Found in Faraway Places, hit No. 1 on four different Billboard album charts. ∙ On the Grammy-nominated single “Invisible Enemy,” Jake Luhrs’ vocals were inspired, in part, by the growling screams of comic book character Wolverine. ∙ Their version of the holiday standard “Carol of the Bells” was featured in the TV series American Dad and in trailers for the film The Spirit. ∙ Band members have collaborated with various metal and hardcore bands, including As I Lay Dying, blessthefall, and Pierce the Veil. ∙ After numerous fans confided their personal struggles to him, Luhrs launched HeartSupport, a nonprofit organization providing mental health resources.
