August Burns Red have announced their return with a new single and details on their upcoming eighth studio album.

The follow-up to 2015’s Found In far Away Places is titled Phantom Anthem and will arrive on October 6 via Fearless. To mark the news, the US outfit have launched a video for their new single Invisible Enemy.

The eye-catching promo sees the band reimagined as puppets and was directed by Samuel Halleen and Raptor House Effects.

A statement on the video reads: “The band’s most iconic videos are reenacted by 3D marionette versions of themselves, with no details spared.

“To the clothes they wear on stage, to the small details in their personal instruments, this video truly captures the energy of August Burns Red’s commanding presence and even includes some of the band’s top fans in the video.”

August Burns Red are currently on tour across the UK and have further European and US dates planned over the coming weeks and months.
