August Burns Red is an American metalcore band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Formed in March 2002, the band began their first performances while a majority of the members were still attending high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster.

The band will be the main support act on A Day to Remember's Toursick in Spring 2010, along with Silverstein and Enter Shikari.
In 2010, the band is touching back down to earth with the release of Home, ABRís first live CD and DVD.
The DVD/CD shoot Ė filmed June 2010 in, appropriately enough, the bandís Home-town of Manheim, PA Ė drew a sold-out crowd of 1250 people who wanted to participate in the exciting performance, including some who traveled internationally, from as close as Montreal to as far away as Amsterdam.
"We played our first ever show as a band in Manheim, PA in April of 2003," explains guitarist JB Brubaker. "Between then and now weíve been fortunate enough to play all over the world. But when it came time for us to record our first live DVD/CD, it only made sense to do so back in Manheim where everything began. It was exciting for us to have people come from far and wide to the town where most of us grew up, and to be able to play such a special show in front of our families and close friends who have been supporting us since the beginning."
The powerful, pummeling performance featured many fan favorites from the bandís three full-length albums, Constellations, 2007ís Messengers and 2005ís Thrill Seeker, meaning that Home will appeal to both new and longtime ABR fans.
Shot and edited by Space Monkey Studios, whose phenomenal work has been seen on releases by acts like Coheed And Cambria, Lamb Of God, Every Time I Die and more, the live show is accompanied by a documentary on the band detailing life on the road and at home and featuring many fans discussing the ways in which August Burns Red have impacted their lives in a positive, meaningful way.
