Between the Buried and Me to celebrate ten years of ‘Colors’

Between the Buried and Me is hitting the road this fall to celebrate a momentous occasion for the group. On Tuesday (May 16), the North Carolina-founded band announced plans to go on tour to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their fifth studio album, Colors. The North American trek will kick off on Sept. 7 at Atlanta’s ProgPower USA XVIII music festival and wrap on Oct. 21 at the Neighborhood Theater in the group’s home state of North Carolina.

During the tour, the band will perform the eight-track album in full. Hitting the road alongside Between the Buried and Me will be the Contortionist, Polyphia, and Toothgrinder. The three bands will open for BTBAM on all stops with the exception of the group’s appearance at ProgPower USA XVIII. Tickets for the fall tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, May 19, at 10 a.m. local time.

In a statement about the tour on their website, the band reveals the reason they decided to head out on tour to celebrate this particular album. “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,” begins the statement.

“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!”

Colors was released in July of 2007 and sold 12,600 copies in its first week of sale. In addition to that, it reached the number 57 spot on the Billboard 200 chart marking the first time the band reached the top 100 part of the chart.

Stream Between the Buried and Me’s New Track, “Memory Palace”


Between the Buried and Me have a new album coming out this Summer and the band have now given fans the first single off of the new “rock opera,” Coma Ecliptic.

The single, a ten minute track currently being streamed on Soundcloud (or below), is titled “Memory Palace.”

Check out the full track below.

Coma Ecliptic is a new life for BTBAM. Throughout the process we worked harder than we ever have and really pushed the BTBAM sound to a new identity” writes singer Tommy Rogers on the band’s page on their record label’s website.

“In a world of repetition, I’m very proud to be a part of something that is extremely rewarding, as well as frightening. When you don’t push yourself you will never know what the outcome is. The outcome is Coma Ecliptic.”

And hopefully it blows their hardcore fans’ minds.

Coma Ecliptic is due out worldwide on July 7 through Metal Blade Records. for those wanting to pre-order the album, head on over to their website where the option is currently available.
