Lancaster, PA's August Burns Red are excited to premiere the music video for "Identity", a track off their latest release "Found In Far Away Places", which debuted at #4 on the Top Albums Chart, #9 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 Independent Album, and #1 on the iTunes Metal Chart. 

After being filmed in front of a green screen, director Drew Russ enlisted the artistic help of a collection of tattoo artists to hand paint each animated element fans will see in the video. The paintings were then scanned in layer by layer to create a visually dynamic and unique experience exclusive to this video, hosting everything from sea-shell drum sets, to whale battles, to metal mermen.

Director Drew Russ explains "This video is a mixed media piece using custom designed illustrations combined with live action footage. All of the outlines were hand drawn (by Mike Cortada) custom for this video. Then, using a light box, outlines were then painted over on watercolor paper, combined digitally and composited into the video".

August Burns Red will be heading to Europe in October with Asking Alexandria and In Hearts Wake.
