Prog metal giants Between The Buried And Me remain dedicated to always pushing their craft forward. A new record is not that far off and here is the scoop from this excellent and respected band:Add to My Radar
North Carolina progressive metallers Between The Buried And Me have come into 2018 with a slew of exciting news!
The band has announced a two-part concept album entitled Automata and part one is expected to be released on March 9 via Sumerian Records.
They will embark on a North American headlining tour with The Dear Hunter and Leprous on March 2.
Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. (Lead Vocals, Keyboards) states: “Every single week music comes and goes. We can get music instantly and with this luxury, the listener has a hard time sitting down with albums and exploring their every twist and turn. Because of this, we have decided to release our new album in two parts. Our music is dense and our albums are very long, so we want to give people two separate moments to dive in this year and explore new music that we’ve put our entire being into. We hope you enjoy the creation as much as we’ve enjoyed the process.”
Ash Avildsen (Sumerian Founder) states: “I first toured with BTBAM in early 2000s when they were on Lifeforce. Since then we remained friends and I have watched their career grow nonstop through eras on Victory and Metal Blade. I am very grateful such a seminal, influential and progressive group of musicians have chosen to partner with Sumerian for their next chapter. It’s days like this that remind me of my roots and excite me about our future.”

North Carolina metallers Between The Buried and Me are preparing to embark on a tour in support of the tenth anniversary of their album Colors.
The tour will feature The Contortionist, Polyphia, and Toothgrinder as support.
Between The Buried And Me comments:
“‘Colors’ was our statement of rebellion. We were challenging how others identified us in the context of heavy metal, and ultimately we were challenging how we identified ourselves. It was some kind of musical manifesto, in which we found new purpose and direction simply by throwing caution to the wind and purging every ounce of creative energy we had, regardless of how unhinged it may have seemed at the time. Ten years have passed and we are lucky enough to be able to play this album from front to back on stage for our amazing fans. See you all soon!”
Check the tour dates out here.
Between the Buried and Me will release their new DVD/Blu-ray, Coma Ecliptic Live, via Metal Blade Records, in association with Good Fight Entertainment. The concert, which features the band performing their latest album, Coma Ecliptic, in its entirety, was filmed live on location October 4th, 2016 at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA. For a preview of the release, a live video of “Turn on the Darkness” can now be viewed below.
Bassist Dan Briggs comments: “The genesis of the ‘Coma Ecliptic’ filming was based around capturing the look and feel of the show our lighting director Chris Hill produced for the full album set. It’s such an important record for us and our progression as a band and the visual representation captures the moods of our tragic tale so well. It’s the perfect way to wrap up the last two years we’ve been living with this album day in and day out!”Add to My Radar
Starting at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey and running forty shows before wrapping up at the Webster Hall in New York.
The tour will be rounded out with support from The Faceless and Good Tiger.

Between The Buried and me are in a great phase right now, already respected
and with several classics under their belt, more plenty of “prove your mettle”
tours under their belts and a reputation up there with the best. BTBAM, with
Coma Ecliptic, step out of the shadow of Parallax and into their most concise
yet still deftly ambitious work ever. Alaska had heart and showed promise and
other moments like The Great Misdirect (a personal favorite) showed BTBAM were
unafraid to reinvent themselves or push at their corners with a flare akin to
Wilco, Mastodon, Candiria, Radiohead- bands with the hunger. Parallax is a
Crack The Skye or Dark Side of the Moon moment in BTBAM’s history, but not
their last hurrah.
“The Coma Machine” is perhaps my fave statement from the group yet as it is
really air tight even though lengthy and full of movement. Perhaps it is the
Scrooge-like theme of a man looking back on memories within each track, but
entire journey is impossible to miss. If you skip a track, like Cynic’s Kindly
Bent To Free Us, you’ll likely be compelled to go back and hear what you
missed. And with good cause, as “Memory Palace” alone is several awesome movements.
Progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me have premiered an exclusive clip from the “Making of Coma Ecliptic” DVD on Billboard today! In the clip, lead singer Tommy Rogers discusses the concept of the band’s upcoming, highly anticipated, album Coma Ecliptic. Fans can watch the video now HERE!Add to My Radar

Escuela Grind is one of the most intense AND fun bands out right now in the extreme metal scene. Anyone who has seen the outfit live knows they put on a careening and death-defying show, blending elements of many of the heaviest sub genres into a world changing charge. It has been awesome discovering truly fired up and creative acts such as them, Habak or Hostilities this year, giving me hope for the next generation of ass kickers. When I heard Indoctrination I was hooked and feel blessed Escuela Grind were one of the first bands I caught live when shows revved up again. Long may they reign.
