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. A BURDEN TO BEAR is the product of the hardships and triumphs of four young men who have devoted their life and soul to the music they create. 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. "ABTB" 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, Youth in Revolt, Awake At Last, Vesta Collide, and Tear Out The Heart. A BURDEN TO BEAR has spent much of 2019 in the studio working with producer Justin Aufdemkampe (Miss May I) crafting and perfecting their most riveting and impressive release to date. The EP was mixed and mastered by Joseph McQueen (As I Lay Dying, Upon A Burning Body, Bad Wolves), and it includes a notable guest feature from Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills. This fist-pumping, moshpit-inducing debut release is slated for the summer of 2020.
