Metalcore group August Burns Red have announced the release of a new record titled Guardians, scheduled to drop April 3 via Fearless Records.  In support of the album, they have joined up with heavy metal greats Killswitch Engage for a spring tour.

August Burns Red have been in the trenches for going on 17 years and have carved out a name for themselves as a technical and proficient band.  In the same fashion, they released a video for their single  “Defender” from the new record. 

In addition to a North American tour kicking off March 10, August Burns Red will embark on an international tour beginning June 6.  Supporting August Burns Red and Killswitch Engage will be Light The Torch. Among many other great European festivals on the tour slate, the band will be playing Hellfest, easily the biggest European metal festival, next to Wacken Open Air.
