August Burns Red just dropped the new song “Bones” from their upcoming eighth full length, Guardians, out April 3 on Fearless Records.

Listen here or here.

“‘Bones’ is a song about taking a step back and realizing that we need to preserve different cultures…even ones you may not agree with,” the band says. “Musically, it’s thrashy and hopefully catchy enough to be stuck in your head for days.”

Check out August Burns Red’s new feature over at Forbes.

The two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated Pennsylvania quintet—JB Brubaker [lead guitar], Brent Rambler [rhythm guitar], Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs [lead vocals], and Dustin Davidson [bass]—recently shared the comic book-inspired video for the new song “Defender.” Watch + listen here.

Guardians is the culmination of a complete and total team effort,” said Brubaker upon announcing Guardians. “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.”
