August Burns Red
August Burns Red have enjoyed their break from the road, but now have enough material to begin recording their next studio album. The group confirmed their return to the studio via a series of Facebook posts this past week, with drummer Matt Greiner getting his tracking out of the way first. One of the first studio photos can be seen above. Even before a note was recorded, Greiner had been pounding away. In a photo posting, it was revealed that the drummer physically wore down his drumsticks during the writing process.
It's still the middle of summer, but Christmas will be here before you know it.

With an Oct. 9 street date via Solid State Records, the album will include holiday classics along with original songs. August Burns Red has released a holiday cover song each of the past four years, which will all be included on 'Sleddin' Hill.'
After a hard-fought battle for supremacy in the previous Death Match, Suicide Silence edged out reigning champs As I Lay Dying in the final hours of the war by a slim margin of 51-49 percent. Suicide Silence fans united in an incredible showing of solidarity and dedication to their deathcore heroes, giving As I Lay Dying their first loss after a Hall of Fame induction seemed certain for the band until the very last moments. Thanks to their insane fans, Suicide Silence's 'You Only Live Once' moves on to its second bout in the Death Match.
For three straight years, Christian metalcore band August Burns Red have released a late-year cover of a holiday classic. Carrying on the tradition of providing online merriment and cheer to all good little boys and girls, the band has just issued a raging instrumental of 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,' which features dual guitar harmonies redolent of Iron Maiden, a galloping rhythm that sounds kinda like Metallica's 'One' with an acoustic arpeggio breakdown.
Christian metalcore maniacs August Burns Red, who hail from Lancaster, Penn., will continue their holiday tradition of making a joyful noise by releasing more Christmas music.
