Homelessness is a huge issue, and August Burns Red address that in their kickass new music video for "Ghosts," featuring singer Jeremy McKinnon. Watch it above, via Fearless Records YouTube.
In an interview with Loudwire, guitarist JB Brubaker talked about the collaboration with A Day to Remember's Jeremy McKinnon:
We showed him the section that we wanted him to sing or scream on, whatever he wanted to do and we gave him creative leeway for him to do what he wanted on the section. He wrote his own lyrics for his part based on what the song was about and he knocked it out of the park for us. He also does a screaming section following the part he sings on where he and Jake go back and forth. It was cool that we got to get his full range as a vocalist on the song. We’re grateful that he was kind enough to be a part of it.
Interspersed with color footage of the band performing the song, the video shows footage of homeless people, both young and old, trying to survive. The lyrics, "I may have no one else to blame, but listen to me / You and I, we were once the same" are strong words that society sometimes chooses to ignore.
