AUGUST BURNS RED werden am 24. Februar via Solid State eine EP namens "Lost Messengers: The Outtakes" veröffentlichen. Die EP wird B-Sides und Outtakes von "Messengers" enthalten.
Gitarrist JB Brubaker hierzu:
"Several of the songs on the EP were heavily considered for the record, but were cut last minute," [..] "and I think that fanswill really appreciate these songs. It seems silly to me to record a bunch of quality songs and then never get them out there for people to hear, especially the diehard fans. That is why we decided to put this EP out."
Die Coverversion von "Carol Of The Bells" wird ebenfalls auf der EP zu finden sein.
"We were in Europe when we received word that 'Carol of the Bells' had been chosen for the trailer of The Spirit," so Brubaker. "We had never had anything like this happen before, and to hear one of our songs on a TV commercial while chilling at home watching a football game was completely surreal."
Zum Booklet fügt er an:
"I think the booklet for this EP is really awesome. We each handwrote explanations about each track. Some talk about why the songs didn't make the album, others explain the lyrics, etc. I think the handwritten notes give the EP more of a personal touch that the listener will be able to appreciate. It's something a little different for us, and I like that a lot."
