August Burns Red – “Empire”

August Burns Red have premiered a video for “Empire.” The track comes off of the band’s most recent effort, ‘Leveler,’ which was released in June via Solid State Records.

“The ‘Empire’ video shoot was an exhausting 8 hours of sweating and head banging,” guitarist JB Brubaker explained in a statement. “But it was worth the exhaustion as I think it’s the coolest performance video we ever did. I especially like the old school ‘Godzilla’ looking shots that are in the middle, and the coloring and filters that were applied to the post production brought everything together.”
