MUSIC NEWS: August Burns Red Release New Single ‘Paramount’
August Burns Red have released their new single Paramount, taken from their eighth studio album Guardians.
“Paramount is one of my favourite songs from Guardians,” says lead guitarist JB Brubaker. “It has that classic ABR sound with a bunch of tempo changes and different time signatures. But there’s a recurring melody that glues the whole song together. I think this is a song that longtime fans of the band are going to love.”
“At times over the last several years, I felt indifferent and uninterested towards the things that used to fuel me,” adds drummer Matt Greiner. “I learned there is actually meaning in suffering. It’s not random and without purpose. I found that the more I faced the fire, the more empathetic I became towards other people who are also hurting. I found meaning in the pain and stopped running from it. That’s what Paramount is about.”
Guardians is due for release on 3rd April via Fearless Records, available to pre-order HERE.
