After wrapping up a momentous summer that included a Billboard Top 10 debut for their latest album, Rescue & Restore, and a mainstage spot on Warped Tour, AUGUST BURNS RED are preparing to unveil their 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 albumLeveler, 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 ABR on the road.”

The band 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 ofForeign & Familiar, followed by a Q&A and meet-and-greet with the band.

“Chicago has almost been a home away from home for ABR,” 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!”

Already one of the most influential acts in the current field of heavy music, AUGUST BURNS RED reached new heights with the Billboard Top 10 debut of Rescue & Restore – which also arrived as the #2 Hard Rock Album, #3 Rock Album and #1 Indie Album. The album’s commercial success has been matched by critical praise and has pushed the band’s combined album sales past the half-million mark.
