August Burns Red Premiere “Ancestry” Music Video Featuring Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach


Metalcore veterans August Burns Red have premiered the song “Ancestry” as the first single from their newly announced tenth full-length album, “Death Below“. Jesse Leach, vocalist of the platinum certified Killswitch Engage and more, joins the GRAMMY-nominated Lancaster, PA natives on this track. A music video for it can be found below.

August Burns Red‘s lead guitarist JB Brubaker commented:

“It’s no secret that the past few years have been extremely dark and challenging. ‘Death Below‘ is here as a result of that time in each our lives and the emotions that came with it. We were motivated by uncertainty, fear, outrage, and triumph. I feel this is the darkest, most personal album we’ve ever written, and I couldn’t be more proud of what the five of us made together.

“‘Ancestry‘ is a complex and technical ABR track held together by perhaps the most painful and personal lyrics Jake has ever written. I loved this song in every phase since its inception. From the instrumental rendition, to the lyrics and vocals being added, to finally bringing it all together with Jesse‘s anthemic guest vocals, ‘Ancestry‘ is a song we’ve been looking forward to sharing with the world for a long time.”

In addition to Leach, the aforementioned album will also feature guest spots from All That Remains guitarist Jason Richardson, ERRA frontman J.T. Cavey and Underoath singer Spencer Chamberlain. A March 24th release date currently stands for that record via SharpTone.
