August Burns Red gets One Night In Cape Town

One Night in Cape Town has been known not to be enough.

With the recent announcement of the Kongos ONICT event at Hillcrest Quarry, August Burns Red (US) get their own night in Cape Town at The Assembly.

10 August 2016 will see August Burns Red taking the Mother City out for a night she will never forget. Hilltop Live hosts One Night in Cape Town with August Burns Red & more at The Assembly, mere days after their performance at OppiKoppi. They are set to be burning hotter than ever before, covered in the scarlet mist of Northam and ready to show Cape Town what they are made of.

Since their formation in 2003, from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, they have evolved into one of the biggest names worldwide in the modern metal scene, continually growing and connecting fiercely with a colossal legion of fans. August Burns Red has spent years skillfully crafting a balance between a ferociously heavy sound with empowering lyrical content, while showcasing a rich surplus of inventive guitar riffs, blistering solos, and dynamic drumming. With a solid collection of 5 previous albums, Thrill Seeker (2005), Messengers (2007), Constellations (2009), Leveler (2011), the band’s latest release Rescue & Restore (2013) rocketed to the top of the Billboard charts – debuting at #9 on the Billboard Top 200.

After being announced to play OppiKoppi, Capetonians have been chomping at the bit for information around a ONICT event for August Burns Red, and finally Cape town gets their chance to see modern metal at its finest at one of the iconic venues in Cape Town. With local support still to be added to this show, it can only get better from here.
