AUGUST BURNS RED are going to release a full-length Christmas album called “August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin’ Hill, A Holiday Album”.
The 13-track release will not only contain classics such as “Jingle Bells”,“Winter Wonderland” and even “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer”, but also original compositions that are destined to become future headbanging holiday favorites. It will also contain remixed and remastered versions of the band’s previous holiday hits, like “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen” and “Little Drummer Boy”. Rounding out the collection is an updated version of the band’s rendition of “Carol of the Bells”, heard in Frank Miller‘s (“300”,“Sin City”) movie “The Spirit” and Seth MacFarlane‘s (“Family Guy”)“American Dad”.
Explains guitarist and principal songwriterJB Brubaker:
The idea of doing a full Christmas album has been floating around in the ABR camp for a few years now, but what always held us back was finding the time and energy to write an additional full-length in between touring and writing our regular records. After finishing “Leveler”, I finally felt inspired enough to tackle the Christmas album idea.
