AUGUST BURNS RED To Play Entire 'Messengers' Album On North American Tour

Posted October 18, 2016 by Josh Drespling in Empire Extreme News Feed

AUGUST BURNS RED will celebrate the tenth anniversary of its second album, “Messengers”, next year by performing the disc in its entirety on a North American tour. The trek, which is scheduled to kick off on January 4 in Philadelphia, will also include PROTEST THE HERO, IN HEARTS WAKE and ’68.

VIP tickets are on sale now at this location. Regular tickets go on sale this Friday, October 21.

AUGUST BURNS RED guitarist JB Brubaker states: “While it’s hard to believe ten years have passed since ‘Messengers’ came out, we’re all very excited to celebrate the anniversary by playing the record in its entirety across America. Some of these songs have never been played live and many of them haven’t been played in years.

“We look forward to sharing the stage with the shredders in PROTEST THE HERO, our close buds from Down Under, IN HEARTS WAKE, and the gentlemen in ’68. These shows are going to be wild. Don’t miss out!”
