August Burns Red Tease Tour With Trailer, Offer DVD Details
August Burns Red have come up with the perfect way to get adrenaline coursing through your veins and to pump you up for their upcoming autumn tour with Blessthefall. This minute-long tour trailer features footage of the bands and the fans, and is potent enough to have you counting down the days until the tour starts.
The trek launches on Nov. 1 in Philly and runs through Dec. 15. Defeater and Beartooth also populate the bill, making for one mighty fine hard rocking run.
In other ABR news, the band will drop the ‘Foreign & Familiar’ DVD this fall. It documents the band’s 18-month touring cycle for ‘Leveler,’ which was released in 2011. The album really put August Burns Red on the map as a metalcore force to be reckoned with and the DVD recounts that experience. The doc tracks the bands progress from as close as North America to as far away as Malaysia and Japan.
“’Foreign & Familiar’ has literally been three years in the making,” said guitarist JB Brubaker. “It’s no small task to try and squeeze 18 months of touring into a two-hour package, but that’s exactly what we have here. I am grateful that we were able to pull this DVD together, as this is something we’ll all be able to look back on as old men and remember the good ol’ days. I think anyone who cares about this band will find ‘Foreign & Familiar’ to be an entertaining and insightful behind the scenes look at ABR on the road.”
Lastly, the band’s Endless Chicago Weekend is set for Nov. 22 and 23. They will play the House of Blues two nights in a row. Fans who grab weekend passes will be able to attend an exclusive screening of the DVD on Nov. 23, which will be followed by a Q&A and meet and greet.
