Having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit? August Burns Red has you covered. The band just released their cover of “What Child Is This? (Greensleeves),” and it’s bound to get you dancing (or moshing) around the tree in no time.
Give it a listen below!
“This song has a bit of a black metal flavor, but takes a turn in the middle,” guitarist JB Brubaker says. “We always have fun writing and recording the holiday songs and we hope you like it too.”
The song will be available for purchase at 9 p.m. PST or midnight EST here.
Last year, the group released a blistering rendition of the classic Home Alone theme song.
This isn’t the first festive tune to get us into the holiday spirit. Four Year Strong released their take on “Somewhere In My Memory”—originally written/composed by John Williams for the 1990 film Home Alone—and we can’t stop listening.
Give “What Child Is This? (Greensleeves)” a listen, and leave your thoughts in the comments!
