August Burns Red Guitarist To Miss European Tour, Ex-I, The Breather Guitarist To Take His Place
August Burns Red guitarist Brent Rambler will sit out the bands immediate European touring due to the impending birth of his son. Ex-I, The Breather guitarist Justin Huffman will be in his place at the shows. Rambler addressed the situation via the bands Facebook with the following statement:
As some of you may know, my wife and I are expecting our first baby VERY soon. Because of this I have decided to sit out this European tour, so I can be home to help my wife during the last few weeks of her pregnancy and ensure that I’m present when my son is born.
HOWEVER, do not worry, as my guitar playing duties have been left in the very capable and very shreddy hands of Mr. Justin Huffman.(ex – I, The Breather) Justin has been friends with the band for a very long time, and he’s been practicing these songs since April, so everything will sound awesome for our amazing fans overseas. Heck, he even kind of looks like me.
I will make my triumphant return to the band for our North American Headlining tour, which starts November 1st at the Union Transfer in Philadelphia, but in the mean time please show Justin an awesome time!
My wife and I can’t wait to welcome our baby into this world, and I hope that all of our European fans have a blast over the next 3 weeks!
I wish I could be there, and I’ll see you next time!!
