August Burns Red began in 2003 while the members were still in high school. The band started jamming in a farmhouse owned by drummer Matt Greiner's family. Although the members of the band are Christians, they are not interested in preaching to their audience, figuring the music should speak for itself.
Original vocalist Josh McManness left the band in 2006 due to exhaustion from constant touring. Columbia, South Carolina singer Jake Luhrs replaced him the same year and the band continued moving forward.
August Burns Red's second album Messengers was a breakout hit when it was released in 2007. The record reached number 81 on Billboard's Top 200 chart and eventually sold over 100,000 copies over the next four years.
