|Continuing a tradition that has spanned 8 years, AUGUST BURNS RED are excited to announce their plans for their annual hometown Christmas show – December 15th, 2013 in Lancaster, PA.
Following a string of sell-outs in their hometown market, this year sees ABR move into the spacious Lancaster County Convention Center for a massive show that caps off the band’s six week North American tour and combines it with a date on the headlining run of fellow heavyweights EVERY TIME I DIE.
Supporting the two acts are DEFEATER, LETLIVE, CODE ORANGE KIDS, ONE YEAR LATER and THE ROAD TO MILESTONE.
“In addition to holiday releases such as singles and last year’s Sleddin’ Hill, we’ve long had a tradition of ending the year with our annual Christmas show in Lancaster, PA,” explains guitarist JB Brubaker. “This year we are doing it a bit earlier than usual, and we’re joining forces with the EVERY TIME I DIE tour to make this the biggest line up we’ve ever had and taking the show to the Lancaster County Convention Center in downtown Lancaster. It will be the last date of our US headline tour, and a festive way to wrap up the tour.”
