BTBAM Announces "Colors" 10th Anniversary Tour

To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of classic album, "Colors," Between The Buried And Me will embark upon a special tour this September/October that sees the band perform the record in its entirety. The "Colors Ten Year Anniversary" tour features support from The Contortionist, Polyphia, and Toothgrinder.

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!" More...

BTBAM Hits Charts With Live DVD

Between The Buried And Me recently released new DVD/Blu-ray, "Coma Ecliptic Live," via Metal Blade Records and in association with Good Fight Entertainment. The band nabbed these chart positions with the release:

#19 Current Hard Music Albums (USA)
#58 Independent Current Albums (USA)

Filmed live on location October 4th, 2016 at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA, "Coma Ecliptic Live" features the band performing "Coma Ecliptic" in its entirety. Hailed as "a 68-minute cosmic opera" (Rolling Stone), the "Coma Ecliptic" album was originally released in July 2015, debuting at #1 on the Hard Music Billboard Chart.

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!" More...

Sunburst Out Of ProgPower USA XVIII

ProgPower USA promoter Glenn Harveston announced that Greek power/progressive act Sunburst was dropped from the XVIII roster, due to a VISA issues, in which a particular USCIS agent made an unusual and specific "all-encompassing" request for evidence that was impossible to satisfy in the time left. Harveston also announced that Brazil's Daydream XI will replace Sunburst.

Harveston posted the following announcement: "It is with extreme frustration and disappointment I must announce that Sunburst (Greece) will not be performing at ProgPower USA XVIII. Despite having provided the same type and kind of evidence that has obtained approvals for not only ProgPower USA bands over the last decade, but for well over one hundred other bands submitted by Marc/Play America, one agent at the USCIS (United States Customs & Immigration Services) has deemed our evidence insufficient. Given the all-encompassing breadth of that specific agent's demands (more than ever have been seen by either Marc or myself) in an RFE (Request for Evidence) in our careers, there is literally no hope of satisfying those demands. Sunburst, Marc, & I have all agreed it would be pointless to continue to fight this hopeless battle.

"Rest assured I have every intention of having Sunburst back as soon as possible. They are an amazing band and deserve to be on the ProgPower USA stage. The band is understandably disappointed, but also understand the circumstances cannot be helped.

"I want to calm the fears of those concerned about other bands performing this year. I have already obtained visa approvals for all bands I am specifically responsible for performing on Friday and Saturday. Sunburst was the last band we were waiting on for visa approval. All bands that have been submitted for Wednesday and Thursday so far have also been approved. More...

BTBAM Partners With "10 Bands One Cause"

After the success of 2014's "Ten Bands One Cause" effort - which raised $28,046.50 for Gilda's Club NYC, an organization that provides free support to people with cancer - ten new artists joined the program in 2015: Between The Buried And Me, Run The Jewels, Sturgill Simpson, Joey Bada$$, Al Green, Chet Faker, Pierce The Veil, Primus, Clutch, and Ingrid Michaelson.

In conjunction with RED, the aforementioned bands released a limited pink vinyl edition of their latest album, with all proceeds going to Gilda's Club NYC. To date, the program has brought in an impressive $36,758 for the cause - which also includes donations from several companies (such as Metal Blade Records, which gave a skinned ASG guitar for auction).

For more information about "Ten Bands One Cause" and how you can help, please visit this location. GCNYC was founded in 1995 in memory of Gilda Radner, the comedian and original cast member of Saturday Night Live who passed away in 1989 from ovarian cancer. GCNYC's mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families.

Set to kick off a North American tour later this month (see below for all dates), Between The Buried And Me released latest album, "Coma Ecliptic," this past summer via Metal Blade Records. More...

BTBAM Announces Tour With Enslaved

Between the Buried and Me will return to the road this fall to headline North America with support from Norway's Enslaved plus progressive masters Intronaut and prog newcomers Native Construct.

Between the Buried and Me's Dan Briggs comments: "This is a package that we handpicked each band, which doesn't always happen. It shows off the diversity of the progressive music universe and we couldn't be more excited to have a young band like Native Construct, Intronaut who are great friends of ours already, and the legends in Enslaved, along with us."

Ivar from Enslaved offered the following statement: "When we ended our highly successful tour just this March, it was with an outspoken 'we sure hope there's another trip across the pond already this year.' And wouldn't you know it; there IS going to be just that! The gods heard our call. OR; it could have been the booking agents and Between the Buried and Me - this tour coming up from November 18th 2015 will see us supporting them on a trek throughout USA for the following month. We will add our extreme flavour to the prog-metal package; to make sure our own faithful American fans (which we will never be able to thank enough for their relentless support), as well as the new listeners we'll meet on the way gets the full-blown Enslaved-experience!"

BTBAM Drummer Comments On Walking Off Stage

Drummer Blake Richardson from Between The Buried And Me has issued the following statement online about walking off the stage in Salt Lake City:

"Hey everybody! First off I want to thank everyone for coming out to our show in Salt Lake City last night. It was, by far, one of the biggest gigs we have ever played there and we can't thank you enough for your support!

"With that, I would like to apologize to my band, crew, Animals as Leaders, The Contortionist, and especially to everyone who came out to watch us play. I've been battling with a nerve issue in my left leg this entire tour.

"The pain in my leg, coupled with a night full of technical difficulties caused me to lash out in frustration towards the end of the set. It was inappropriate, unprofessional, and extremely regrettable. In my eleven years of touring, up until last night, I have never acted in that manner... ever. I hope that those who were in attendance can forgive my actions. The support and kindness y'all showed when we came back on to finish our set is something I will never forget. I promise that we will come back and give you all a proper BTBAM experience!

"As for the rest of the tour, we WILL be performing at all the remaining dates. My playing may not be 100%, but we figure that a BTBAM show is better than no BTBAM show! I sincerely appreciate the support from our fans, band mates, crew, and tour mates. You all have made this such an amazing tour for me!

"I'd also like to send a big thank you to everyone who has come out to see this tour. We would not have means to support ourselves and our families without YOU. We are forever grateful for your support."

Between The Buried And Me is touring in support of latest album "Coma Ecliptic" (reviewed here), which dropped earlier this month via Metal Blade Records. More...
