August Burns Red is a metalcore quintet from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The band consists of lead vocalist Jake Luhrs, lead guitarist JB Brubaker, rhythm guitarist Brent Rambler, bassist Dustin Davidson and drummer Matt Greiner. Every holiday season, the band creates a metallic take on Christmas classics! This year they decided to cover the iconic holiday song, ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You,’ by Mariah Carey.
Honestly, the cover art for this single is just pure bliss! We think that Jake got the pose down perfectly! What do you think?
This year, we decided to take a crack at the legendary Mariah Carey song ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’. This turned out to be one of the most fun holidays songs we’ve ever done, and a real head spinner for me on the guitar leads. I’m proud of how it came out and think it will be a staple for people looking for a little more metal in their holiday playlists.JB Brubaker
The track is available to stream on every platform here.
This cover isn’t the only thing they released this week. They also announced that they’re going to be having their annual Christmas Burns Red show! This Livestream event will take place on Saturday, December 12, at 8 pm EST/5 pm PST.
CHRISTMAS BURNS RED
During the Christmas Burns Red 2020 Livestream Event, the band will perform songs off their latest record, Guardians, and live for the first time. This event is also going to have the biggest and most festive Christmas Burns Red stage setup ever!
Doing an annual holiday show has been a long-standing tradition for ABR. This will be our 15th consecutive year, and we didn’t want to let COVID-19 end the streak. While we are bummed we can’t play for everyone in person, we are doing everything we can to make sure that this year’s Christmas Burns Red is bigger and better than ever.JB Brubaker
