Metalcore act AUGUST BURNS RED have revealed the first song from their recently announced new studio album
With the recent announcement of their upcoming tenth studio album, “Death Below“, AUGUST BURNS RED have released the LP’s first single.
Titled “Ancestry“, the track features the vocal stylings of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE singer Jesse Leach and can be heard below via the song’s official music video.
AUGUST BURNS RED guitarist J.B. Brubaker comments: “It’s no secret that the past few years have been extremely dark and challenging. Death Below is here as a result of that time in each our lives and the emotions that came with it. We were motivated by uncertainty, fear, outrage, and triumph. I feel this is the darkest, most personal album we’ve ever written, and I couldn’t be more proud of what the five of us made together.”
Brubaker continues: “‘Ancestry‘ is a complex and technical ABR track held together by perhaps the most painful and personal lyrics Jake has ever written. I loved this song in every phase since its inception. From the instrumental rendition, to the lyrics and vocals being added, to finally bringing it all together with Jesse’s anthemic guest vocals, ‘Ancestry‘ is a song we’ve been looking forward to sharing with the world for a long time.”
