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...
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!"
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."

About the "Coma Machine" music video, vocalist Tommy Rogers shared: "This video is special to me because it looks beyond the story that is on the record. It showcases the character preparing for his journey and is him basically saying bye to his old demons/life. This footage adds dialogue to the story and I think that is very unique. Wes and crew did a wonderful job creating a world that works well with the song and uniquely showcases the depth of this unstable character."

Come and Take It Productions founded Texas Independence Fest in 2008 as a way to bring fans of heavy music together and to celebrate Texas pride. This was my second time attending the annual event held in Austin, Texas. Last year I covered sets by Behemoth, 1349, Wayne Static and more. The previous year consisted of only a day, while this year was expanded to three days. Several vendors offered their goods and services for sale. One of these was Gibroni’s Texitalican Kitchen, which offered Tex-Mex meets Italian sandwiches. More...
Progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me has released a brand new song from upcoming seventh full-length album "Coma Ecliptic."
Fans can listen to "Memory Palace" now below. "Coma Ecliptic" will be officially released worldwide on July 7th, 2015. Coma Ecliptic boasts a series of emotive peaks and valleys that drive the narrative along with the lyrics. Singer Tommy Rogers shares:
"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. 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."
The album was recorded in January and February of 2015 with longtime Between the Buried and Me producer Jamie King at Basement Recordings in North Carolina. Drums and piano were recorded with King and Kris Hilbert at the Fidelitorium. Final mixing and mastering was placed in the capable hands of Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amon Amarth, Devin Townsend) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden. More...

Today Myles Yang from Metal Blade Records outfit Native Construct shares this story of showing up to a Between The Buried and Me show early, only to have another show goer try to pry him away from the front of the crowd:
About five years ago, I was at a Between the Buried and Me concert in North Carolina with some friends. We were huge fans, so we made sure to arrive at the venue several hours before the doors opened in order to secure spots at the very front row of the main floor, right up against the barricade between the stage and the audience.
The show was going great at first, and the crowd was becoming increasingly rowdy, as expected with music like BTBAM’s. There was the usual light pushing and scuffling, and people trying to weasel their way to the front of the crowd. One girl who was standing directly behind us, however, was absolutely hell-bent on getting our spot in the front.
This girl – I’ll just call her Lisa for now – started off with some unremarkable tugging on my arms and clothes in an attempt to pry me off the barricade. I did my best to ignore it and enjoy the show. As BTBAM’s set went on, Lisa became more and more determined, and her tactics escalated to clawing, pulling, and shoving with all her might to remove me from the front row. I wasn’t having it.
Eventually, Lisa’s boyfriend got involved. I was still trying to just focus on the show as much as possible at this point, but all of the sudden, I felt a sharp pain in the back of my left shoulder. I immediately turned my head to see what was happening behind me, and found myself staring directly into the crazed face of Lisa’s boyfriend, whose mouth was currently clamped down on my shoulder. He had bitten me. He was still biting me. It was as difficult to believe in that moment as it is now. As the reality of the magnitude of savagery I was dealing with in these people was sinking in, I managed to struggle out of the clutches of his blood-soaked jaw.
By this time, surrounding audience members had noticed that something abnormal was going on, and many people intervened and pulled Lisa and her boyfriend off of us. The venue security also got involved. Of course, they had no information about the nature of the conflict, and their job is to simply end any conflicts as swiftly as possible in order to keep everyone safe. So they understandably rounded up Lisa, her boyfriend, and myself, and began escorting us all the way back across the main floor and through the crowd, in order to eject us all from the venue. Needless to say, though, I was rather unhappy about having to miss the rest of the show due to the behavior of a couple of strangers.
But, to my great fortune, as I was passing through the center of the crowd with my respective security guard escort, Between the Buried and Me began their next song, “Augment of Rebirth.” If you’ve heard this tune, you know that it has a fairly intense start. The crowd instantly erupted into a rambunctious hurricane, and I was quickly separated from the security guard and lost in the dense and chaotic sea of people. There was no chance of security finding me again, and so I was able to see the rest of the show after all – from the pit.
Let us know if you've ever had to deal with overly aggressive fans at the front of the show through the comments section.
Native Construct signed to Metal Blade Records earlier this year and will release debut album "Quiet World" on April 21st. Check out a video playthrough off the album below. More...
Between the Buried and Me is excited to announce the "Coma Ecliptic" tour, named after the band's forthcoming new album, and set to take place July through August in North America.
The tour features support from Animals As Leaders along with openers The Contortionist. The tour will be the group's first official set of dates following the release of "Coma Ecliptic" on July 7th. A first single from the album will also be landing in early April.
"Coma Ecliptic" will launch via Metal Blade Records worldwide. Once again, the band has returned with an ambitious concept album: this time, the story follows the wanderings of an unidentified man, stuck in a coma, as he journeys through his past lives. Each song is its own episode in a modern day, sort of The Twilight Zone-esque fashion. The unidentified man enters each world and is offered a choice: stay, or move on to the next in search of something better, something more "perfect." More...
By the time fans in the United States see Between the Buried and Me live this April, the band will have completed a brand new album.
The album will see a release later this Summer, but fans will be able to experience BTBAM live beginning April 5th in Asheville, NC at The Orange Peel through April 19th in Lancaster, PA at The Chameleon.
The tour includes appearances at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival and Texas Independence Fest. Joining Between the Buried and Me on this tour will be Chicago, IL's The Atlas Moth. The confirmed list of dates are below. More...
Between the Buried and Me has been writing, rehearsing, and compiling ideas for an eighth full-length album over the last several months.
Finally, BTBAM has begun tracking with producer Jamie King in North Carolina, with this new album following previous full-length "The Parallax II: Future Sequence" (reviewed here).
With album number eight, the band promises to continue to challenge itself and expand on the elements that makes BTBAM one of the finest progressive bands operating today. Front man Tommy Rogers adds:
"I’m very proud to say that we are now recording a brand new BTBAM record. We have really pushed and challenged ourselves more than ever with this material. It is a perfect representation of where we stand as musicians and as people. This is our voice in the current age of music. Evolution is a must. We now enter the coma and we will see you on the other side… hopefully."
The new album is tentatively scheduled for a Summer 2015 release via Metal Blade Records. Updates from the studio are being posted across the band’s social media sites, as well as the artist’s personal profiles. For updates from vocalist / keyboardist Tommy Rogers, guitarists Paul Waggoner and Dustie Warring, bassist Dan Briggs, and drummer Blake Richardson, follow the band online here.
