This is Who We Are

Fort Wayne, Indiana's own A Burden To Bear is much like the calm before a nasty storm - captivating audiences with beautiful harmony and melody just to bring them crashing back down to Earth with a display of utter aggression and power. ABTB is the product of the hardships and triumphs of five young men who have dedicated their life and soul to music. In addition to their three singles, the band's forthcoming EP is more than just a rebirth, it is a statement of who they are becoming as both people and a band. A Burden To Bear is building their legacy from the ground up with this fresh, new take on melodic metalcore.


In their young career as a band, these talented men have opened for national acts such as Miss May I, Like Moths To Flames, Famous Last Words, Kingdom Of Giants, Dayshell, Phinehas, Nekrogoblikon, and Youth in Revolt. After spending many hours perfecting and recording their debut singles, A Burden To Bear made the decision to work on their upcoming EP with Justin Aufdemkampe of Miss May I at Refraze Recording Studio in Dayton, Ohio. The band has officially finished recording for the album, and post production has begun. Their new record is slated for release in early 2020.
