In a free ranging discussion with Great New Metal founder and publisher Brian Shields, Between The Buried And Me's Paul Waggoner let's young musicians know that is takes more than just advanced software in a bedroom studio to earn the attention of metal fans.
"If you're going to commit yourself to being a musician, particularly in this genre, it's a blue-collar job," Waggoner tells Shields in a conversation recorded at San Francisco's Fillmore venue. "You have to get out there. You have to get on the road. You have to tour. You have to work hard. You have to hit the streets and play shows and people's basements and whatever you have to do to show people that you play your instruments and that you're not just a recording. You're a band."
Waggoner says that's one of the reasons he's joined other established metal musicians, such as Paul Masvidal (Cynic) and Brian Fair (Shadowsfall) in supporting Great New Metal, a music journalism project designed to create a buzz around up and coming metal bands, growing their audience, and helping them to monetize that new fan base. Watch the video interview below.

Prog-metallers TesseracT have filled their calenders with future tour dates. Before embarking on a massive North American tour with Between the Buried and Me, the UK act hits the road for a European headlining tour. Recently, the band completed an Australian tour.
"Australia was a revelation! We won't lie, it's not easy to get 'down-under'. 25 hours trapped in a tin can, hurtling at 600 miles an hour, 40,000 feet in the air over land and sea with nothing but your fellow passenger's flatulence and airline 'food' for company is hell. But the end goal was SO worth it! We were amazed at the response in each town, especially Melbourne. You guys really made the gig amazing," comments bassist Amos Williams.
"So what's next for us this year? First, we have a European headliner - the Lowering the Tone Tour 2011, with Chimp Spanner and Uneven Structure. Secondly, we return to the US and Canada this October as part of the 'Saints and Sinners' North American Tour. This bill is insane. We're gonna have to really be on the ball every night as the other two bands are masters of tech. After us will be Animals As Leaders. Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes are probably the most exciting guitarists on the scene today. The pair are like aliens with super human skills and innovative ideas. Then headlining will be Between the Buried and Me...Intense and hugely energetic."
"We're so happy to be returning to the US and Canada re-visiting all our North American fans, and hopefully picking up a few new ones along the road!"
American progressive metal act Between The Buried And Me has revealed the dates for its upcoming headline tour of North America.

"The Hypersleep Dialogues Trek" tour tore its way through North America and part of Canada over the course of a month, moving counter-clockwise from New York and ends up in Asheville, North Carolina tonight. As the name shows, Between The Buried and Me was supporting their new album, "The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues," and they brought a solid lineup to Nashville with them – Job For A Cowboy and The Ocean. On their stop through Rocketown on Friday, May 13th, the bands played to a familiar crowd. Three years earlier, Between The Buried and Me had recorded their show here at Rocketown and released it as a live CD/DVD package – "Colors Live."
As the line snaked around the large venue, funneling in for about an hour, you could overhear discussions about the rarity of bands like Between the Buried and Me, Opeth, and others who "could do whatever they wanted, and I’d always love ‘em." More...
It is without a doubt that the hype and anticipation around the first ever headlining performance from Between the Buried and Me in Vancouver was huge. Having appeared in the city twice before as an opening act, playing only 2 songs in its first appearance and 3 songs the next, the BTBAM faithful were lined up two blocks deep outside the city's Rickshaw Theater hours before showtime, to catch a well deserved full length set. Although being the headline act the attention would soon be taken away from them by five guys from Germany, who would show Vancouver how live metal should be done. More...

"The response to the new album has been absolutely amazing!", commented BTBAM's Tommy Rogers. "It's always a rewarding experience to hear excitement about the music we create. These days it's hard to judge what people think of new music, and the early feedback on tour and the Internet has really motivated us to create an even more badass record for the second part of 'The Parallax'. See you all on tour!"
