August Burns Red Working on Christmas Album

Posted by - 10:41 AM on 02/17/12
August Burns Red's next release will be a Christmas album.
From the InterviewWe’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. I presume covers, which we’ve already done some of and maybe some original stuff as well. But the covers are obviously the bigger hits. People know the melodies. Christmas songs are some of the most recognizable, distinguished melodies of all time, so it’s kind of a no-brainer there.

Excellent. I don't think I have all of their annual covers, so it would be nice to have them all in one place. It would be cool to hear some covers with vocals as well.

Huh?! I hope this won't be released until Christmas time. I don't know how they could get themselves into the Christmas mood off season.

Why would they release it before Christmastime? All he said was they;re recording in March.

Excited for this. They could release a Christmas album in July, and I'd be jammin' to that.

So we have to wait until two albums from now to get some actual new material? That fucking sucks.

I almost thought that they were releasing it in March... But nope, they're recording it then. This should be pretty cool. I've always loved ABR's annual Christmas songs, so like a guy said above, it would be nice to have them all in one place.

Color me interested. I don't really approve of christmas songs and metal songs combining, but the musicianship of this band is undeniable and could pull off something genuine. Then again, it has the potential to be bad, as all christmas song releases do. I'll give it a listen when it drops.

glad i'm not much of a fan of this band. i'd be pretty disappointed to hear that they were taking studio time to do christmas songs and not work on a serious album.

I think this is the only band that can pull this off. I'm stoked, and for the naysayers: If you don't enjoy their Carol of The Bells or God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman covers, you clearly don't appreciate great musicianship.
