August Burns Red have released a new song, originally recorded in the same studio sessions as their latest full-length album 'Guardians'.
'Standing In The Storm' is full of trademark ABR moments, from the epic sprawling guitar solos to the guttural breakdowns, but it's the video for the song that is the most curious. Part animation, part almost paper-like sculpture, it's a visually stunning accompaniment to a fascinating song.
Guitarist JB Brubaker has this to say about the song:
"'Standing in the Storm' is a song about fighting for something important to you, and enduring the hardships that come with that fight. We had a lot of fun with this track and I'm pumped on how it came out."
Have a listen and a watch here:
'Guardians' is out now via Fearless Records, and has produced some other incredible songs and visuals.
The band recently released a cover of System Of A Down's 'Chop Suey!' as well, which is also great:
