Meshuggah is returning to North America this summer to celebrate its 25th year of musical deviance with festival appearances, Canadian dates, and clubs bound to fill to capacity.
Opening on all but two festival dates will be North Carolina’s Between The Buried And Me.
Meshuggah aims to play a very special 25th anniversary set by performing selections from the band's entire discography. Fans have the opportunity to vote for the songs they want to hear at Facebook here (voting ends April 2nd).

This week certainly could've gone better for metal. Most of us woke Monday morning to the startling news that Dave Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus - visiting alien, hilarious aficionado of all things offensive, and lead singer of costumed shock metallers GWAR - had died in his sleep of unknown causes Sunday, March 23rd.
Naturally, co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) felt it only right to devote a nice, twitching, juicy slab of this week's podcast to Dave/Oderus. [00:50:45] His sudden death will likely have a massive, throbbing, aching impact on the future of metal culture, an impact as understated and yet as ever-present as his three-decade influence while alive and killing.
It's not all bummer news, though. We have some live concert adventures to share as well. Kevin caught performances by two renowned progressive metal bands: The Ocean [00:08:58] and Between The Buried And Me. [00:37:15] Mike saw thrashers Destruction [00:00:44] and experienced a unique, unexpected, trend-bucking grassroots event dubbed Annihilation Fest, held in Lynchburg, Virginia. [00:27:01]
Between The Buried And Me will be recording a new DVD in March. BTBAM's Tommy Rogers comments:
"We are very happy to announce that we are finally doing a DVD for The Future Sequence. In this age we live in you can watch us play any of our songs live online. So we wanted to give our fans something a little different... an intimate live performance of us playing in a studio. It will be a wonderful experience and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoy playing these songs."
Metal Blade Records also adds: "The concept behind this project is in contrast with the band's ambitious and impressive live stage productions - this will feature the band in a small studio, an intimate setting in which they will perform 'The Future Sequence' in its entirety.
"Joining the band for this performance will be a small group of auxiliary musicians, including percussionists, saxophone, flute, string quartet. BTBAM will record at the Fidelitorium outside Winston-Salem, NC after the conclusion of their upcoming North American tour.
"Director Justin Reich will be behind the cameras for this project, and longtime BTBAM producer, Jamie King, will mix and master the audio. The release date is tentatively scheduled for the Fall." More...
Between The Buried and Me will be returning to the road in 2014 with a headlining tour of North America.
Joining BTBAM on this trek will be Deafheaven, Intronaut, and The Kindred. In anticipation of the journey, the band recently released a short video recorded during its most recent North American excursion at the end of 2013.
The video, as the band describes is, "The process. The preparation. A small glimpse into the beginnings of a BTBAM show. Let's switch off together." The video was produced, filmed and directed by Raymond McCrea Jones and Wes Richardson, with editing by Raymond McCrea Jones, and visual effects by Wes Richardson. Check it out below, with full dates on the tour available after the jump. More...
Between the Buried and Me has posted a behind-the-scenes clip online, which can be viewed below, and the band also comments:
"We just launched a new video on our YouTube, giving a little insight into the 'behind the scenes' of a live show. This was taken on our fall headline tour. We're heading out on another headline tour in 13 days, hitting parts of US and Canada, and hope to see you all out there!
"The video was produced, filmed and directed by Raymond McCrea Jones & Wes Richardson, with editing done by Raymond McCrea Jones, and visual FX by Wes Richardson."

Between The Buried and Me have done some crazy things, such as playing "Colors" live in its entirety and following the hour-long album with a second complete set of fan-picked favorites. They've also been selling bundles of their latest album, "The Parallax II: Future Sequence," that include a full-size BTBAM NASA-themed space suit. It's safe to say that the bar on what constitutes 'crazy' for this band is set rather high. For the whole 35-date tour, which had started on September 13th in North Carolina, the band decided to go full crazy again and perform "Future Sequence," their longest album to date, in its entirety.
Moreover, they were bringing a slew of other near-virtuoso-level bands with them to add even more moments of jaw-dropping to the mix for the show. The Faceless, modern kings of start-stop melodic death metal, The Contortionist, a band pushing the boundaries of metal as much as they push the boundaries of jazz and djent, and The Safety Fire, groove-centric prog lads from overseas, rounded out the lineup. These Herculean feats of skill were all to close out the tour in Nashville, TN on October 25th at The Cannery Ballroom. More...
The Faceless is currently preparing to embark on a massive North American tour as direct support to Between The Buried and Me, which kicks off on September 13th.
The band is still touring in support of latest effort, "Autotheism." A new tour promo and music video for the track "Ten Billion Years" is available below, and tour dates can be found after the jump.
In what is apparently a reference to previous label Victory Records releasing the "Snapshot" 10 track compilation, Between the Buried and Me has posted the following message online about only buying releases directly from the band:
"Just so everyone knows, we have a merch button at the top of our page that is a listing of all our official merch stores. Please don't bother buying from anywhere else as it does not in any way filter through to us, nor do we have control over the quality of the product.
"Also, I know our fans are smart enough to know that if there is a new release coming out that we haven't advertised, then we obviously have nothing to do with it and again it is only profiting some third party that has no association with the band. We'd be more than happy if you just downloaded our old (ie: pre-Parallax) music and just continue coming to see us live.
"THANK YOU! See you all soon."
Between the Buried and Me left Victory Records several years ago and signed on with Metal Blade in 2011.
Between the Buried and Me will be embarking on a headlining tour across North America this Fall. This tour will be the first time the band will be performing "The Parallax," both parts I and II, in their entirety (check out our reviews of part I and part II).
Joining the band for this tour will be The Faceless, The Contortionist, and The Safety Fire. The tour is scheduled to begin on September 13th in North Carolina and will wind its way across the U.S. and Western/Central Canada before wrapping up in Tennessee on October 25th. More...
Between the Buried and Me has announced the band's return to European stages for June for a run of festival and club shows. Dates are available below. Comments guitarist Paul Waggoner:
“We are really excited to get across the pond this summer and play for all of our loyal European fans, as well as hopefully gracing the ears of some folks who aren't familiar with what we do.”
Between the Buried and Me's concept album, "The Parallax II: Future Sequence" (reviewed here) released in October of 2012, and gave the North Carolina-based band its highest one week sales figure and Billboard chart position (17,102 and #22 respectively) since the group's inception in the early 2000's.

Regarding the concept of The Parallax II: Future Sequence, the new full-length album picks up where the 2011 EP, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues, left off. "The two main characters of the story take on a journey through space and time with the unenviable task of having to cure the flaws of humanity by any means necessary. While the EP served mostly as an introduction to the characters, Future Sequence contains the action of the story. The lyrics are written in the stream of consciousness style, which really helps to capture the perspective and emotion of the characters. We really enjoyed the challenge of writing this record, and I think we were all pleasantly surprised with how well the music and lyrics jived with one another. I couldn't be happier with how Future Sequence turned out," comments guitarist Paul Waggoner.
Vocalist and keyboardist Tommy Rogers adds his thoughts on the musical direction of The Parallax II: Future Sequence. "This album is Between the Buried and Me on steroids. I feel like we have created an album that perfectly mirrors the band we've been trying to create since day one. An album that has sounds that will stimulate many genres and music fans alike. A conceptual journey that takes the listener to worlds that seem familiar and worlds that make you scratch your head. From start to finish this is music we want to create, not music we think people want us to create. We create songs that keep us (and hopefully you) excited about heavy music. Keep listening… something new will be there each time. Enjoy the music… we enjoyed writing it." More...

"The Parallax II: Future Sequence" was recorded at The Basement Studios in Winston-Salem, NC with longtime friend of the band and producer Jamie King. Jamie engineered, mixed, and mastered the album, which makes this the sixth release Jamie and BTBAM have worked together on.
