“Internal Cannon”, the new video from the Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based Christian metalcore quintet August Burns Red, can be viewed below. The song comes off the band’s fourth album, “Leveler”, which sold around 29,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 11 on The Billboard 200 chart. August Burns Red’s previous CD, “Constellations”, opened with 20,000 units in July 2009 to debut at No. 24. “Leveler” was released on June 21 via Solid State Records. The effort was made available in both regular and deluxe editions – a first for the band.
“We shot the ‘Internal Cannon’ video in the middle of nowhere in New Jersey at an old water pumping station,” explains guitarist JB Brubaker. “The video was shot four stories underground at the base of a massive antique water pumping apparatus. There was no way to get down except for a rickety narrow spiral staircase which made loading the equipment very tricky. It was easily the sketchiest load in of our lives. The floor was dirt/mud and I played in bare feet to help portray the grittiness of the location. Unfortunately, I’m not sure there is a single clip in the video where you can see my bare feet.”
