Metalcore Giants August Burns Red Return to San Antonio Next Year


  • Facebook, August Burns Red
When a band has the jingle bells to go all-in and release an entire metal album dedicated to Christmas and the winter season in general, it could go one of two ways: terrible, or fucking awesome. With August Burns Red’s 2012 record Sleddin' Hill, they did the latter and absolutely destroyed it.

But for folks who know the sheer ferocity and talent of August Burns Red already understand that whatever these dudes put their hands to, the result will always be gold.

Lucky for us, the Lancaster, Pennsylvania boys return to S.A. on Thursday, January 31, 2019 to douse us in their Jesus-loving metalcore flames.

$24-$26, Thu Jan. 31, 6:30pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St.,
