August Burns Red Streaming New Holiday Track “Flurries”

August Burns Red are sharing “Flurries” from their upcoming Christmas album below. According to guitarist JB Brubaker:

“‘Flurries‘ is one of two original songs I wrote for the record. It’s the first track on Sleddin’ Hill and it’s a dynamic song that begins with a big build-up before kicking into gear. We were able to play with all sorts of layers in this song including strings, lots of different bells and booming war drums. I definitely think the song sets the tone for what is to come on the rest of the record.”

The group will release “August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album” on October 09th through Solid State. Pre-orders are now live at Augustburnsred.com.

The Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato isn’t pleased with the influence religion has over the current political candidates running for the White House. Taking to his Twitter earlier today, August 30th, he unleashed the following series of tweets:

“We need an educated, raised poor, gay, part Mex, black, & Jewish, pot smoking, fiscally conservative, socially liberal, atheist president”

“If we really wanna blow the fucking doors off and shake the old bullshit. Erase debt & create empathy for all walks and ways of life.”

“Listening to Obama & Romney both constantly coddle believers of 2000yr old mythology in 2012 is sickening. Get the cross out of your mouths.”

“Sorry, I’m about to punish your timelines. Regarding a particular reply…it’s not about “letting people believe what they want”… It’s about a modern government’s ability to make decisions being compromised by having to appease a large group that should, at this point, be a freak fringe seen as oddly as we see Scientology.

A mythology that instills psychological crutches & reduces educated adults to infants. There are medical advances not being made, rights not being granted/being denied, wars being fought, people being jailed, etc ad nauseum “Letting people believe what they want” is an absurd concept.

Nobody would vote for someone who believed life was run by a magic dragon. But believer of desert zombie, water walking, eternal life giver? Sure….you sound like a sane man. Please run my country.

More timeline punishment & I’m done. I’m not saying that people shouldn’t follow their own path to “enlightenment” or sense of “fulfillment” We all want a sense of bigger purpose. But we have to be aware enough to realize that without fact it’s all just self appeasing bullshit to calm us down/give us some inner peace.

It’s a trick we’re willingly playing on ourselves, whether Christianity or New Age metaphysics. I’m fine with that. But when those PERSONAL beliefs are given importance in political discourse when things are as fucked up as they are it’s not just irresponsible it’s OFFENSIVE, particularly when the belief happens to be a cause/influencer of a lot of terrible policy.

And that’s all. I have to eat and write lyrics and learn weird 200BPM headache inducing rhythms. LA peeps, go to FYF this weekend.”

With Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe‘s presidential campaign seemingly sidelined by his legal troubles; ex-Hollywood Undead vocalist/punching bag has announced that he is going to run for office. The following press release was issued regarding that:

“Los Angeles, CA – Everybody’s favorite masked rock star Deuce today announced his run for President. As the founding member of the I Came To Party, Deuce brings a simple message to the masses: The economy is in the toilet. People are down on their luck.

The two major political parties are stale. It’s time to say “Let’s party!” While Deuce has always been a man with the message of a good time, The Deuce for President campaign began as a grassroots initiative from supportive fans, who drew on his inspiration and created a “Deuce For President” group page. The group’s popularity rapidly grew and after careful consideration, Deuce has accepted their nomination.

“I’m bringing the party back to the people,” said Deuce. “It’s all about partying without a cause: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit to Party.”

Deuce has released the next installment in his visual catalogue with the video for a song that is the foundation of his campaign platform, ‘I Came To Party‘, directed by Nathan Cox and featuring the Millionaires. Deuce invited his fans to come party with him at a club in Fullerton, CA via his Facebook page. The result was a wild party with Deuce at the center of the chaos. The ‘I Came To Party‘ video, brilliantly illustrates all that Deuce would bring to the nation if elected…”
