August Burns Red surprised fans today by announcing a new album due April 3rd via Fearless Records. The new album, Guardians, will be the band’s eighth full-length release.

Guardians is the culmination of a complete and total team effort,” said lead guitarist JB Brubaker. “Dustin and I collaborated musically more than we ever have before. Jake and Brent collaborated vocally more than they ever have before. Matt bounced more drum ideas off of us than we could even comprehend. It was the most time we’ve ever spent in the studio on one album. We’re all so proud of this record, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”

Along with the news, the band released the fourth song on the record, “Defender.

“The song ‘Defender’ is about having that person who can come in and take some punches for you, and be in your corner during hard times,” said rhythm guitarist Brent Rambler. “I am quite the comic book fan and I thought the lyrics could easily turn into an awesome animated short story — kind of like if the pages of a comic were to come to life. Luckily, everyone else agreed and we have this sick video to go along with the song.”

In support of the new album, August Burns Red will spend March and April touring alongside Killswitch Engage and Light the Torch.
