In 2018, metalcore band August Burns Red was nominated for a Grammy for best metal performance for “Invisible Enemy,” from its most recent album “Phantom Anthem.”
Two years prior, the band was nominated for the same Grammy for “Identity,” from 2015’s “Found in Far Away Places.”
After 16 years together and eight albums, the band has more than earned the nominations, but before those nominations, there was “Constellations,” the band’s third album.
Singles like “Thirty and Seven,” “Existence” and “Indonesia,” which features Tommy Giles Rogers of Between the Buried and Me, pushed the album to enter the Billboard 200 chart at #24.
In 2010, the album was nominated for a Dove Award for rock album of the year at the 41st GMA Dove Awards.
Released in 2009, August Burns Red is touring in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the album. This anniversary tour brings the band to the Knitting Factory on Friday.
“We are very excited to bring everyone the ‘10 Years Of “Constellations” ’ world tour,” the band told Blabbermouth. “This is something that fans have been asking for, and we intend to deliver with the most ridiculous production and show we’ve ever put on. ‘Constellations’ was an extremely important record for the members in the band, so we can’t wait to celebrate with you all!”
