August Burns Red is a Christian metalcore band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
The band formed in March 2003 while some of the members were still in high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster. The band name is derived from an incident involving their first vocalist, Jon Hershey.
The band is mostly known for their heavy breakdowns and odd-meter riffs. They also cite Between the Buried and Me, Misery Signals and Hopesfall as their main influences.Content: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_Burns_Red
