AUGUST BURNS RED will release its third full-length album, "Constellations", on July 14 via Solid State Records.

The visual themes for "Constellations" echo the band's career-long fascination with spirituality and destiny.

"'Constellations' is about directing our attention towards heaven, trusting that God will direct our steps, regardless of our circumstance," says drummer Matt Greiner. "The kites in the artwork represent our own intelligence and innovation. So often we trust our own abilities to guide us through life, but the 'wind' of life will send our kites soaring every which way."
