August Burns Red ignited the stage in Buffalo, NY on Monday night. The band played the Town Ballroom on the Messengers Ten Year Anniversary Tour and one thing was very clear at the end of the night, ABR are kings of the genre. Playing Messengers front to back and sounding just as good, if not better than when it was released a decade ago. The stage was taken over by intense strobe lighting, and that was just the beginning of the intensity August Burns Red brought to the stage. Fans erupted for favorites like "Back Burner" and people could be seen leaving the pit with chipped teeth and ripped clothing. Every moment of the night was fueled by nostalgia, raw energy, and amazing talent.
