August Burns Red set to release holiday album, “August Burns Red present: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album”

I had to look at the calendar to make sure we were still in the summer months after I read this latest piece of news. Apparently it is never too early to begin working on a holiday album, according to August Burns Red.

The Pennsylvania metal group began work on a holiday album way back in February, and are gearing up to release it in the coming months. The album will be entitled, “August Burns Red presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album”, and is set to be hit stores October 9 through (I would imagine) Solid State Records.

The holiday record will feature 13 tracks total, including their take on classics along with original compositions. Here’s what guitarist JB Brubaker had to say about the upcoming release,

Because this was such a different type of album, I was able to get a little more wild with my influences. There’s a section inspired by one of my favorite bands, Beirut. There’s also a guitar solo that is an ode to Blue Album-era Weezer, and my punk roots are evident all over the album.Writing metal versions of Christmas songs has always been a challenge for me because the songs are driven by simple vocal melodies with the only variety in the lyrics. We decided to take the songs and go the instrumental route – the main melodies are there, but this record has a lot more to it then that. The songs have sections of music that flow in and out of the classic melodies we’ve all come to recognize. There is a lot of substance in these songs- more than you’d find in your typical cover.To some, the concept of a metal Christmas album may come off as silly and a waste of time, but I think this record has plenty of original ABR substance to interest even the biggest Scrooges out there.”

August Burns Red to record a Christmas album

Yes, Christmas is just about 10 months away, but August Burns Red drummer Matt Greiner announced in a recent interview with Punks in Vegas that the band is planning to record a Christmas album next month and release it during the holiday season. He also mentioned that the album will feature both covers and originals. Matt explains:

“We’re currently writing a Christmas record which we’re recording in March. That’s something we’re all very excited for. We’ve released 5 Christmas songs so far and we’re looking forward to this one. I’m not sure when the release is. I’m not even sure it will be this year. But the tentative plan is to finally get these songs down and put a bunch of eclectic metal-ish Christmas songs together on one CD.

After that, I believe we’re going to a bunch of new places in Asia. We’re going international baby!”
