NEWS: A Burden To Bear begin the climb with Spencer Charnas!
Fort Wayne, Indiana’s own A Burden To Bear. have released a brand new single “Ascension” which features a guest vocal appearance from none other than Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills. Mixed by Robin Leijon, it is taken from their EP “With Empty Eyes and Hollow Hearts” due out on 16th September and follows the huge success of their 2020 single “Forlorn Hope“. That has amassed over 180k streams on Spotify and over 180k views on YouTube as the band continue to create in Modern Metalcore.
The band states “‘Ascension’ was a song that came together very organically with all five members in the room throwing out opinions and building off each other. Spencer Charnas’ feature came about very naturally as well, as it stemmed from a conversation between Spencer and ABTB guitarist Wyatt in Kleaver Klothing’s booth at Warped Tour. While hesitant at first to work with a producer, Justin Aufdemkampe proved a trusted source of advice and inspiration for ABTB. His studio, Refraze Records, in Dayton Ohio quickly became a home away from home for the band.”
The band has been working with producer Justin Aufdemkampe (Miss May I, War OfAges) on their new EP: “A Burden To Bear’s new single ‘Ascension’ is a perfect blend of crushing guitar riffs, melodic melodies and heavy breakdowns wrapped up in one big present for the masses. It was a pleasure to produce and work along side the band with this catchy tune!” says Justin.
Spencer Charnas adds: “It sounds like they have an early Unearth and It Dies Today influence and that is really cool”
