Latest Between The Buried And Me News
Below is our complete Between The Buried And Me news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Welcome to the return of This Week In Metal, a column I used to do before I was forced to take a hiatus from metalunderground.com. In this weekly column, we will update the top 10 selling albums in the metal industry (courtesy of CMJ) and the top 10 radio singles (pulled from Music Match). They use a number of sources for the list, including all satellite radio. While you may find a few bands that are too soft for the list, I assure you there will be more then enough surprises. Feel free to comment on the list and who you think is over/under-rated, what bands you expected to see and which ones you didn't. Again this column will run weekly, so be sure to check for it every Thursday in the columns area of MetalUnderground.com.
Now for the music, we will start each week with the albums. It's a good mix of what bands are bursting the underground, and some bands that have been killing for quite a while now.

Now for the tunes. These singles are a real who's who amongst metal right now. I find the list to be powerful and only really have one flaw. Keep in mind some songs have been out longer then others and have picked up a good fanbase on the radio, other songs have just come out and are sure to see their time at the top.

Another year, another Ozzfest. After a star-studded lineup for its ten year anniversary last year, Ozzfest was faced with the challenge of putting together yet another great lineup for its eleventh year. When I went to Bristow, VA on Sunday, August 6, 2006, I was wondering just how good a lineup they managed to scrape together. I knew the bands that were playing, but the real question remained whether the main stage bands could hold their own with primarily younger, nu-metal bands on it and Ozzy closing out the second stage.
The temperatures had fortunately dropped from the 105F degree humid days of only a few days earlier, but the sky was crystal clear for most of the day and the intense sun beating down on you in the 90F degree temperatures was still enough to take a lot out of you and require constant re-hydration.

My Son My Executioner recently announced several line-up changes. Vocalist Zach Updegrove, guitarist Tommy Gates, and drummer David Bruner have amicably exited the band to "pursue other things." The group has subsequently added former guitarist Bobby Reynolds to the fold in addition to drummer Jason Roe (ex-Evelynn, Between the Buried and Me). The band is currently seeking an additional guitarist. Interested candidates should send an email to email@example.com.
The first-ever RADIO REBELLION TOUR 2006 Presented by Hurley, Smartpunk.com, Nike 6.0, Fuel TV and Hot Topic is set to kick off October 6 in Nashville.
Showcasing cutting-edge artists who’ve built a massive grassroots fanbase without the help of commercial radio, RADIO REBELLION TOUR 2006 signifies the shift in how today’s youth discovers and identifies new music and lifestyle trends through the media and the Internet. The inaugural eight-week trek will visit 45 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada between October 6 and December 2. Stay tuned for the fall 2006 itinerary to be announced soon.
Tickets will first be available via the tour’s Internet pre-sale beginning nationwide on August 15 at 9:00AM PST via www.musictoday.com. In addition, the RADIO REBELLION TOUR 2006 CD sampler will be distributed at Hot Topic stores nationwide as well as on the remaining Vans Warped Tour ’06 dates.
“The idea behind Radio Rebellion is simple. We created a tour that showcases artists who’ve achieved some solid commercial success without the traditional drivers of commercial radio,” says Graham Day, founder of Smartpunk.com and tour partner/sponsor. “Some of the Radio Rebellion artists have now sold a few hundred thousand records without having a single spin on commercial radio. We’ve witnessed first-hand the power of this new breed of artist as well as their tight connection with their very active fan-base and now we’re offering these bands that fans want to see in an intimate and ideal environment.”
NORMA JEAN will headline the tour, which also includes BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, FEAR BEFORE THE MARCH OF FLAMES, MISERY SIGNALS and revolving openers THE FULLY DOWN and THE CONFESSION.
“The Radio Rebellion Tour is representing a small portion of bands who are doing something different in the music industry as a whole without having a lot or any radio play at all,” says NORMA JEAN lead vocalist Cory Brandon. “The truth is, I think radio should conform to what bands like us are doing, instead of us conforming to what they’re currently playing just to get on the radio. It doesn't and shouldn't work like that in music. We’re making headway without their support and we’re not at all against the idea of heavier bands having radio play, but this doesn’t and won't change what we are doing artistically whatsoever
Lacuna Coil have lined up seven off-date Ozzfest gigs just as "Enjoy the Silence," the second single from their latest offering, Karmacode, is set to impact commercial-rock radio. The Coil will perform with Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold and Atreyu in Englewood, Colorado (July 5); Rob Zombie and Anthrax in Oklahoma City (July 12); DragonForce and Between the Buried and Me in Minneapolis (July 14); Atreyu in Grand Rapids, Michigan, (July 20); Avenged and Bleeding Through in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, (August 8); Atreyu in Nashville (August 10); and DragonForce and Between the Buried and Me in Atlanta (August 11).
In related news, Between the Buried and Me and DragonForce are teaming for more off-dates: June 30 (Eugene, Oregon); July 5 (Colorado Springs, Colorado); July 12 (Fort Worth, Texas); July 13 (Columbia, Missouri, with the Red Chord and A Life Once Lost); July 17 (Traverse City, Michigan); July 24 (Louisville, Kentucky, with Bleeding Through); July 31 (Poughkeepsie, New York); August 2 (Burlington, Vermont); August 12 (Tallahassee, Florida); August 14 (Lake Buena Vista, Florida); August 15 (St. Petersburg, Florida); August 17 (New Orleans); and August 18 (Houston).
Chiodos have dropped off the remainder of their current tour with Between The Buried And Me, August Burns Red, etc. as a result of some health issues with singer Craig Owens. States the band: "Craig woke up this morning with a severe shortness of breathe, and needs to get back home to rest up. As many of you know, Craig has suffered from a collapsed lung in the past. Due to the symptoms coming back, we have decided to pull out of our direct supporting slot on our current tour. Craig and the rest of us will be resting up to get ready for our upcoming tour with It Dies Today and Haste The Day. we are terribly sorry, and would like to apologize to all of our fans in Canada, Boston, and Pittsburgh that planned on attending these shows. we hope that you understand that we love you but a band members health comes first."
It comes as little surprise that Avenged Sevenfold have been officially confirmed as the mystery band on the main stage for Ozzfest 2006. The real surprise announcement is that power metal band Dragonforce, recently signed to Roadrunner Records in North America and rumored to be joining Gigantour 2006, has been added as the main stage opener as well.
Ozzy Osbourne is now slated to headline the second stage on three dates (replacing some dates that he was previously thought to be headlining the main stage):
July 8 - San Bernardino, CA's Hyundai Pavilion of Glen Helen
July 11 - San Antonio, TX at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
July 22 - East Troy, WI at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre
OZZY says, "After 10 years of headlining Ozzfest's main-stage I think it's time for a change. I haven't had a chance to play this close to an audience in years and I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to it."
Also announced is that Ozzfest emcee Big Dave and professional Ozzfest party guy, Eddie, have begun their nationwide search visiting 19 of the festival's 26 cities to find the first-ever Miss Ozzfest. The duo will be accepting entries and taking photographs of Miss Ozzfest candidates in each city. Throughout the summer the Ozzfest fans can vote for your favorites at Ozzfest.com. All entries collected from Big Dave and Eddie will be posted for you to vote on. The top three in each city will be awarded FREE tickets to the show in their city, where at some point during the evening's festivities, the three contestants will be presented on stage to the fans who will vote on a winner. Photos of each winning contestant, including the top vote getters from Raleigh and West Palm Beach, will be posted once again on Ozzfest.com, where fans can pick their Miss Ozzfest 2006. Final voting will be held at Ozzfest.com on August 7 and 8. The winning beauty will be awarded the grand prize and receive round trip airfare and accommodations for her and a guest to attend the year's final show August 13 in West Palm Beach where she'll be crowned Miss Ozzfest 2006.
Here's a recap of the complete official Ozzfest 2006 lineup and tour dates: More...

The album was produced by System guitarist Daron Malakian. This year's Ozzfest begins June 29 in Auburn, Washington, and will run through August 13 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
