Below is our complete Bury Your Dead 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.
On Friday, June 2nd, I attended the Devildriver show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. Along with Devildriver were Artimus Pyledriver, Remembering Never, Bury Your Dead, and If Hope Dies. I arrived late due to a need to stop and pick up dinner. Once I arrived, I began eating my dinner after checking in with Dez from Devildriver and meeting all their friends outside the Devildriver camper. Dinner was cut short as I had to conduct my interview with Devildriver's drummer, John Boecklin. John and all of Devildriver's friends, along with Dez and all the members of Devildriver were very nice and hospitable to me. I was treated as a friend and felt among friends, although during the interview there were many interruptions.
My interview with Devildriver drummer, John Boecklin was conducted on Devildriver's camper and, as mentioned, was interrupted quite frequently until John finally yelled for the door to be kept shut. After the interview, I walked out to rain and thunder and immediately hoped my dinner had been saved from the rain, which it had been, much to my relief. I thanked a friend of the band for saving my dinner and asked Dez and John if I could finish eating on their camper; they were kind enough to say yes. So, I went and finished eating on their camper. WhenI met my friend in side the venue, I found out that I had missed If Hope Dies and learned that they weren't that great. When I went down to the pit area, I saw Artimus Pyledriver in the middle of their set. More...
According to a posting on the KORN fan site KornUnleashed.net, PEEPING TOM — the new project of Mike Patton (FAITH NO MORE, MR. BUNGLE, TOMAHAWK, FANTOMAS) — has been added to The Family Values Tour 2006. The band will reportedly join the tour's second-stage lineup along with already confirmed acts 10 YEARS, BURY YOUR DEAD, BULLETS AND OCTANE and DEADSY.
The Family Values Tour 2006 billing is now shaping up as follows:
DIR EN GREY
BURY YOUR DEAD
BULLETS AND OCTANE
With the addition of a second stage and many top rock acts, fans will get even greater value from the Live Nation-produced Family Values Tour, as the festival features $9.99 lawn tickets and value-priced seating available at every outdoor amphitheatre along the tour route, making it one of the hottest tickets of the summer.
On July 11th, Bury Your Dead will release their eponymous "Beauty And The Breakdown" album through Victory Records.
According to the press releases: BYD rise to the occasion after breaking up and reforming; having gone through 9 touring vehicles including buckets of bolts like a Hyundai Accent and a Kia Sefia. They're still together and they're stronger than ever on the new album, "Beauty And The Breakdown" - which is easily their most focused sonic offering.
In the Bury Your Dead tradition, the music is heavier than granite, but the band's approach and collective attitude is light, fun and carefree bringing old school rock n roll f-you style back to the music scene; that coupled with their not to be missed live performance is what sets BYD apart from their peers. Also drawing attention from music industry folk, specifically Superhero Artist Management'’s Howard Jones who doubles as singer in Killswitch Engage and now manages the band. Bury Your Dead's brute heaviness collided with their catchy melodies, "making you mosh your brains out to our infectious breakdowns, is what keeps the kids coming back for more." As Slim says, "It's always down and dirty, hustle and bustle with Bury Your Dead." And that equals a damn good time.
While 2004's "Cover Your Tracks" respectfully sold more than 80,000 copies, featuring song titles named after Tom Cruise movies, "Beauty And The Breakdown" doesn't name its song titles after Nicole Kidman movies - nor does it sound like its predecessor. Here, BYD named all their songs after fairytales, like "Mirror, Mirror", "House Of Brick", and "House Of Straw." The album's artwork is laid out like a storybook, as well. Despite having such light, fun titles, the music contained on the moshable "Beauty And The Breakdown" is pummeling, vivid, and fast, and it will knock the wind out of you.
Their organic method of playing with ideas and writing songs is another key factor of what makes BYD a little bit different and a whole lotta special. "Me and Mark are like peanut butter and jelly," Slim reveals. "We don't need to lock into a practice space with a bottle of whiskey and make a thing, with details all hidden. We go into my parents'living room, where he has an electric drumset and I have a half stack, and we write and other members come in and contribute."
Fun is an essential ingredient to the BYD sound, and they definitely strike the balance. "You can hear us having a good time,"

After locking themselves in Florida's Audiohammer Studios with producer Jason Suecof (God Forbid, Trivium), Bury Your Dead are nearing completion of their new album, tentatively titled "Beauty and the Breakdown." With the recording completed and mixing about to begin, anticipation for this follow up to 2004's Cover Your Tracks and 2005's Alive CD/DVD release has begun. Suecof wasted no words in describing the new album, announcing that "I would just like to say that this is the heaviest fucking album I've ever gotten to work on."
Guitarist Slim B spoke for all of Bury Your Dead when he said recently, "As a band, we feel this record is the equivalent to Dr. Dre's The Chronic. We are excited as hell about this record – Jason challenged us to try new things and pushed us to do some things that may surprise people, while retaining and building on our sound. We can't wait to get back on the road and start playing live again, but recording has been the best experience possible."
A lot has happened to Bury Your Dead since the release of Cover Your Tracks in October of 2004, from incredible tours to magazine coverage in Revolver, Alternative Press and Outburn. Bury Your Dead were called "Destructive hardcore with blunt, pronounced lyrics and delicious breakdowns..." by Kerrang! Magazine, and spent the summer of 2005 on the most successful metal tour of all time, Ozzfest.
A line-up change occurred recently and Bury Your Dead are pleased to announce their new bassist, Aaron Patrick. As a band that made their name as an explosive live act (documented on last years' Alive CD/DVD, recorded and filmed at Chain Reaction in Orange County), touring is second nature. In May the "Burning Daylight Tour", Devildriver will headline with Bury Your Dead in direct support, raging across the U.S. with Remembering Never, If Hope Dies and Artimus Pyledriver. All dates will be announced soon.
The first handful of dates for the late Spring tour featuring DEVILDRIVER and BURY YOUR DEAD have been released:
May 8 - San Diego, CA @ House of blues

May 10 - Orangvale, CA @ The Boardwalk

One separate account of the incident that happened Sunday at Iron Maiden's final Ozzfest show had Bury Your Dead members helping to instigate "attacks" towards Iron Maiden. The group has now issued a statement denying the story:
"Despite rumors flying, Bury Your Dead was not involved with the unfortunate events that took place during Iron Maiden's set at Ozzfest this past Saturday at the Glen Helen Hyundai Pavillion. Guitarist Rich Casey said 'we have the utmost respect for Iron Maiden and Ozzfest and Bury Your Dead did not partake in Saturday's ill-fated events.'"
God Forbid has just been added to the WAAF Locobazooka Festival, which is set to take place on September 18 in Fitchburgh, MA. The festival features Disturbed, The Dropkick Murphys, Ill Nino, Life Of Agony, Clutch, Seemless, Darkest Hour, Bury Your Dead, Dope, Bloodsimple, and many more. Tickets are $39.95. For more information, check out www.locobazooka.com.
I attended Ozzfest 2005 on Sunday, July 24 in Bristow, Virginia’s Nissan Pavilion (my report is running late, as I’ve found myself overcommitted lately). This fest was the tenth annual Ozzfest, and not to be outdone by last year’s excellent lineup, this year they sported an equally as good lineup spanning more genres of metal than before. This year’s lineup also contained numerous headliner-quality bands on both stages including, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, Rob Zombie, Mudvayne, and of course Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.
Had I known that both people I was supposed to go with would bail out, I would have lined up a photo pass for the whole show to give me something more to do. As it turned out, I pretty much just enjoyed the show and met up with As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis for an interview that we missed in Philadelphia, PA.
While this year’s lineup sported mostly bands I knew and had heard, most I was only vaguely familiar with, so pardon the lack of specific details such as song names, etc. in many cases. More...
Black Dahlia Murder guitarist Brian Eschbach was detained by police during Ozzfest's Pittsburgh stop and ticketed for obscenity. As the bearded axeman explained, "I was helping out someone else with a camera and a microphone and I got my towel taken [from me], which was the only thing I had on at the time, and I was apprehended." But he wasn't the only person busted by the authorities that afternoon. Bury Your Dead guitarist Slim B. was also arrested for crashing one of the Ozzfest golf carts. "I was too fast, too furious," he explained. "I shouldn't have been driving at all, and I made a boo boo. I took a hard right which happened to be a hard left and ended up eating sh--." Slim B. sustained facial and arm scrapes in the accident.

It’s that time of year again- birds are chirping, trees are blossoming, the city’s Crowne Plaza Hotel is bombarded with numerous metal parties. And, of course, the local businesses in Worcester, MA hand out flyers that read “Dear metalheads (!!!), if you’re wondering where to get drunk tonight, come to our pub”.
It’s the New England Metal Fest weekend, which was held on April 22-24 and welcomed fans from all corners of the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and even UK. Probably the biggest and best festival on this side of the Atlantic. At least this year’s. I was giddy with excitement about this event since January and I lived to share my observations and opinions. More...
