August Burns Red just released their Guardians Sessions EP last week and they're not done yet! The band has now revealed they've been working on an entirely re-recorded version of their 2011 album Leveler due out May 21. The new version was produced and mixed by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (ERRA, Rivers Of Nihil), and features guest appearances from Matt Heafy (Trivium), Misha Mansoor (Periphery), and Ryan Kirby (Fit For A King).
"Let the Leveler 10 Year Anniversary begin! We've been hard at work on the ultimate celebration for our 2011 album Leveler," said the band in an Instagram post. "On May 22nd we'll be doing a Leveler full album livestream alongside our most epic stage production yet. But wait, there's more…
"Earlier this year we re-recorded Leveler from the ground up. We've got new guitar solos, guest performances, and a mix that will melt your face RIGHT OFF. This record is being self-released and will be available on limited edition vinyl, CD, and streaming everywhere on May 21st."
