You can read our interview with Jake Luhrs, vocalist for August Burns Red here. The band is currently in the middle of their Frozen Flame U.S. headlining tour, alongside Miss May I, Northlane, Fit For A King, and Erra.
The subject matter is sensitive. There’s a lot of stuff that we’re not going to let you know what the lyrics mean, because we want each listener to take it for what they need it for, not for what we’re giving you. But there’s a lot of sensitive stuff there, there might even be some questionable subject matter where people are like “What’s this?”

Jake Luhrs, lead vocalist of August Burns Red, has written a blog about Ferguson and the Christian church, which you can read over at HeartSupport.
The problem is that many of the comments on the civil rights issues being raised that we’ve seen from white “self proclaimed Christians” is one of back-biting, snide comments, and pointing to statistics on crime within the African-American community as opposed to getting to understand their brothers and sisters in Christ’s perspective and exactly why and how they’re hurting.
