August Burns Red - New Album Cover Art And Tracklist Revealed

US metallers August Burns Red will release their forthcoming album, entitled Leveler, on June 21 via Sollid State Records. The effort will be available in both regular and deluxe editions.

JB Brubaker commented: "What we were going for with the cover was an image of a house that had been destroyed by a natural disaster . The cover depicts a house that has been leveled by something like a hurricane. You can see the trees in the background are bent sideways from enduring strong winds. There are a bunch of chickens in the foreground who have come out of hiding to continue on with their daily activities. The chickens represent the calm after the storm. They represent life and the promise of a new day. The art has a real indie-rock vibe to it, which I like because while we're obviously not an indie band, we're not a typical metal band either."

I like how deep and philosophical the explanation was regarding the album cover, only for me to discover it's some lame cartoon drawing.
Prettier than BloodTears.
