New Video Interview With ‘August Burns Red’ Drummer ‘Matt Greiner’ Posted Online


ABR_Matt-GreinerRadiosuicide Photography‘s RSPTV conducted an interview with drummer Matt Greiner of August Burns Red on September 15 in Gothenburg, Sweden. You can now watch the chat below.

After wrapping up a momentous summer that included a Billboard Top 10 debut for its latest album, “Rescue & Restore”, and a mainstage spot on Warped TourAugust Burns Red is preparing to unveil its next offering, a brand-new DVD entitled “Foreign & Familiar” to release this fall. The documentary chronicles the entire 18-month touring cycle behind the band’s breakout 2011 album “Leveler”, whose critical and commercial success catapulted the band to the forefront of the modern heavy music scene.

From headlining tours of North America, Europe, Japan and Australia — with stops in New Zealand, Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and more along the way — “Foreign & Familiar” shows the globetrotting metal titans doing what they do best in settings all over the world.

‘Foreign & Familiar‘ has literally been three years in the making,” explains 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 August Burns Red on the road.”

August Burns Red is also pleased to announce the Endless Chicago Weekend event on November 22 and 23, featuring back-to-back shows at Chicago’s House of Blues and, for fans holding a weekend pass, early entry on Saturday to attend an exclusive screening of “Foreign & Familiar”, followed by a question-and-answer session and meet-and-greet with the band.

“Chicago has almost been a home away from home for August Burns Red,” says Brubaker. “From the Beat Kitchen and Reggie’s to our many stops at the House of Blues and even Riot Fest, Chicago has consistently been a tour stop we most look forward to playing. We wanted to make our stop in Chicago this fall extra special. Certainly looking forward to spending some extra time in the Windy City!”
