Every holiday season, AUGUST BURNS RED — JB Brubaker [lead guitar], Brent Rambler [rhythm guitar], Matt Greiner [drums], Jake Luhrs [lead vocals], and Dustin Davidson [bass] — celebrate the most wonderful time of the year by offering up their unique and thoroughly metallic takes on Christmas classics.
This year, they take on pop icon Mariah Carey.
The Lancaster, Pennsylvania quintet have delivered their instrumental rendition of a modern holiday smash — Mimi’s beloved “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Listen to Mariah’s metalized hit here.
The track is available at all DSPs here.
“This year, we decided to take a crack at the legendary Mariah Carey song ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You,” says Brubaker. “This turned out to be one of the most fun holidays songs we’ve ever done, and a real head spinner for me on the guitar leads. I’m proud of how it came out and think it will be a staple for people looking for a little more metal in their holiday playlists.”
ABR have also revealed the details of their annual Christmas Burns Red show. This year’s event is going online, due to the pandemic.
The Christmas Burns Red 2020 Livestream Event takes place on Saturday, December 12 at 8pm EST/5pm PST.
