August's Album Spotlight
Found In Far Away Places by August Burns Red is in the album spotlight for August. This is the band's seventh studio album. It was released on June 29th via their new label Fearless Records. The album continues the increased use of strings, acoustic guitar, and other various instruments similar to Rescue & Restore. The album also includes a small touch of clean vocals, courtesy of a guest appearance from A Day To Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon. He appears for a quick chorus to brighten the melancholic, brooding “Ghosts.” "We wanted to start the record with a bang and this song is a real kick in the mouth," notes guitarist JB Brubaker. "It's fast and heavy while discussing how our planet is being destroyed by the gross misuse of our resources, and the general apathy of the human race when it comes to caring for the Earth."
