AUGUST BURNS RED will release its seventh full-length album, "Phantom Anthem", on October 6 via Fearless Records. The follow-up to 2015's "Found In Far Away Places" was recorded with longtime producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland.
The Lancaster, Pennsylvania five-piece teamed up with SiriusXM Liquid Metal to premiere new track "Invisible Enemy" and has released an imaginative music video for the song.
Working with director Samuel Halleen, the band was turned into 3D marionette versions of themselves, with no details spared, even including a scene of one of their most iconic videos for "Meddler". To the clothes they wear on stage, to the small details in their personal instruments, this video truly captures the energy of AUGUST BURNS RED's commanding presence and even includes some of the band's top fans in the video.
"Phantom Anthem" track listing:
01. King Of Sorrow
02. Hero Of The Half Truth
03. The Frost
05. Invisible Enemy
11. Carbon Copy
AUGUST BURNS RED will kick off its European headline tour for the tenth anniversary of its much-loved album "Messengers", with performances slotted for the fall on Rock Allegiance, Houston Open Air and Aftershock festivals.
"Found In Far Away Places" marked AUGUST BURNS RED's second consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200. The single "Identity" notched a Grammy Award nod in the category of "Best Metal Performance."
