Two-time Grammy nominees August Burns Red are excited to kick off the holiday season with their reimagined version of the classic Christmas song by Wham!, “Last Christmas“. August Burns Red have made a highly-anticipated annual tradition of releasing Christmas covers, with last year’s being “What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)” and the beloved Home Alone theme song the year prior. “Last Christmas” is available to stream and purchase digitally now via Apple Music at http://found.ee/lastxmas
Bassist Dustin Davidson from the band explains “This year I sat down with the intention of writing something upbeat, melodic, and shredtastic. When we decided to cover “Last Christmas” I kept in mind that most people only know the chorus of the song. We didn’t want to recreate something word for word, or note by note, so I took the main hook and built a bunch of original ideas around it. The lyrics to Wham’s “Last Christmas” are very sad, so if you’re feeling lonely this holiday season, I hope this cover finds you well.

This week, August Burns Red were announced as nominees for the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards® in the Best Metal Performance category for their song “Invisible Enemy“, taken from the band’s latest full-length album Phantom Anthem. This marks the second Grammy nod for Lancaster, PA’s August Burns Red, as they were nominated in the same category in the 58th GRAMMY Awards® for their song “Identity” from 2015’s Found In Far Away PlacesPhantom Anthem is available on iTunes.
The 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards® will take place in New York City on Sunday, January 28th, 2018, with winners being announced live from Madison Square Garden.

August Burns Red have had a busy 2017, having toured the U.S. and Europe in support of the 10th anniversary of their much-loved album, Messengers (2007), and performing at major festivals in the US and throughout Europe.

August Burns Red will kick off a North American headline Phantom Anthem Tour in January before heading to Europe on the alongside Make Them Suffer, In Hearts Wake and Whitechapel. UK tour dates will be announced soon.

Ahead of the band’s forthcoming headline tour, SikTh, have revealed a new video for the song “The Aura” from their recently released new album The Future In Whose Eyes?

The new clip, already confirmed as Scuzz TV’s Spankin’ New Video Of The Week, was directed by SikTh’s own Mikee W Goodman, here he comments on video concept: “The Aura” was initially lyrically inspired by a day I spent with a magical being. It then spiralled into dreamscape memories and reflections. I tried to bring this out in the music video. The shadows of dancers appear now and then which is a direct link to the chorus lyrics. The rest of the story is told through one actress playing the flower being role. All this is intercut with band footage. “
