Perhaps the biggest name in local music these days, at least in terms of national and international reach, is Lancaster's August Burns Red. This hardcore band came up through CI Records and has been on Solid State for several years. The guys are back in the studio recording their next album, and they've added an interactive element to the process. You can watch them live online, and even chat with them, by going here.
Meanwhile, their latest EP, Lost Messengers: The Outtakes, will be released next week, on February 24th.
If you like hard music, check these guys out. They're the real deal, and they always put on a great show. Hopefully we'll be able to see them at the Chameleon again soon, or perhaps Purple Door.
