August Burns Red Presents: Sleddin' Hill, A Holiday Album is the fifth studio album, the first holiday/Christmas album and the first instrumental album by American melodic metalcore band August Burns Red. It was released on October 9, 2012 through Solid State Records.
The album was announced on Solid State's website on August 7, 2012.
Discussing the album, lead guitarist J.B. Brubaker said he was able "to get a little more wild" with his influences and that one of the solos was an ode to Blue Album-era Weezer. He also said that his punk influences are evident all over the album.
"Flurries" was the first song released from the album for streaming. It was released online on August 31, 2012.
"Sleigh Ride" was the second song released from the album. It was released on September 18, 2012 to online retailers. The song was one of the last songs to be recorded for the album due to "its crazy song structure and various key changes", guitarist J.B. Brubaker said. The song features a jazz section in the middle with a horn section.
All songs arranged by J.B. Brubaker. All songs are public domain, unless otherwise stated.
