August Burns Red’s fifth album (sixth if you count last year’s holiday album Sleddin’ Hill), Rescue & Restore, will be released at the end of next month. You’ve already gotten a chance to hear “Fault Line” from the forthcoming album, and the band has just released a second song, “Spirit Breaker,” that you can stream online. In addition, if you sign up for the band’s mailing list, you’ll receive a free sampler with songs from the band’s career handpicked by the guys themselves.
Here’s what the band’s JB Brubaker had to say about the song:
“When picking songs to preview the album we wanted to share a variety of different songs as this album is pretty diverse. ‘Spirit Breaker’ is one of the more melodic songs on Rescue & Restore and features one of my favorite clean sections on the album. It’s not as heavy as the majority of the album but we feel like it still hits hard and has the potential to be a great live song.”
Check out the song after the jump, or go to Merch Direct to listen and download the sampler. Rescue & Restore will be released on June 25 on Solid State.
