Metal crusaders AUGUST BURNS RED will debut the video for “White Washed,” the next single from the band’s celebrated album Constellations, this Saturday, May 22 on the homepage of MySpace.

Shot in Philadelphia near the band’s home turf of Lancaster, PA, the video captures the chaotic energy of an AUGUST BURNS RED live show – a fitting move for a song that has quickly become a live favorite for fans.

“The video doesn’t have a concept, per se, and maybe because of that ended up being one of my favorite ABR videos,” says guitarist JB Brubaker. “We simply shot a performance video in a completely white studio space with lots of washed out shots. Get it? White Washed? It was a grueling day of shooting, but now that we’ve seen the end result, it was more than worth the effort.”

The “White Washed” video’s release comes at the front end of a busy summer for the famously hardworking AUGUST BURNS RED, whose packed schedule includes the recording of a live CD/DVD, the band’s first tours of Japan and South America, and a headlining tour of Europe, not to mention the summer festival circuit. Live dates below.

Constellations, the band’s 3rd album, has been a critical success in the metal world, helping AUGUST BURNS RED to not only become one of the forerunners in the current metal scene, but also break out and reach newer fanbases. The album has sold in excess of 75,000 copies and has been lauded by taste making publications such as Revolver, AP, Outburn and more, further solidifying ABR’s stature.     Upcoming Tour Dates:
