Metalcore band August Burns Red has released a lyric video for “Fault Line”, the first single from their upcoming album Rescue & Restore, which comes out June 25th. The album is the followup to 2011′s Leveler (unless you want to count 2012′s Christmas album August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin’ Hill). The album can be pre-ordered in many different packages here.
Guitarist JB Brubaker comments, “’Fault Line’ is a staple sounding ABR song. It’s a good place to start when whetting people’s appetites for Rescue & Restore.”
Brubaker discusses the album, stating, “Rescue & Restore is about challenging other bands and ourselves, as well as fans of this music, to want more than whatever happens to be the current buzz,” explains Brubaker. “We’ve done our best with each new album to try to push our sound in new directions and we’d like to see our peers do the same. People need to realize that there’s not much of a difference between a metalcore song that has a couple breakdowns with a repeating chorus and the latest Lady Gaga song. This genre used to be better than that. It can still be better than that.”

Roadrunner Records are delighted to announce the signing of boisterous Welsh metal quartet Revoker. Hailing from the depths of Wales’ Rhymney Valley, the band will soon start work on their debut album with Skindred’s Benji Webbe for an early 2011 release.
Although Revoker officially formed in Spring 2006, frontman/guitarist Jamie Mathias and guitarist Chris Green have been playing in bands together since they became teenagers. The band’s engaging 19-year old mouthpiece Mathias comments, “Getting signed to Roadrunner is amazing and almost surreal. I’ve grown up listening to bands like Megadeth, Slipknot and Machine Head. So to be a part of the same label as them is nuts! I think Roadrunner is the perfect home for Revoker!”
