August Burns Red attack homelessness in latest video

Posted by on October 13, 2015

August Burns Red released the song “Ghosts” back in June, with Jeremy McKinnon of A Day To Remember doing guest vocals, and now it gets the full music video treatment. The song is from their latest album Found In Faraway Places on Fearless, which debuted at #4 when it came out this past summer.

Said guitarist Brent Rambler of the poignant video:

“I think a lot of people, myself included, have always walked by homeless people or those less fortunate, and either ignored them or immediately thought that they must have done something wrong to be in their current situation. No one ever seems to take the time to stop and think that a small series of events can put you right in their place. A lot of homeless people led normal lives just like everyone else before they landed on the streets, and they deserve help and respect to get back on their feet. Not judgmental looks and whispers.”

August Burns Red will be hitting the road next month with Every Time I DieStick To Your GunsPolyphia, and Wage War, on a 19 date tour around North America.
