August Burns Red Working On Christmas Album


August Burns Red drummer Matt Greiner has revealed that the band will be recording material for a Christmas-themed album next month. Speaking with, he offered:

“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…”

When asked if the album will be a mix of originals or classics he replied:

“I think we’re going to be doing both. 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.”
