New Jersey progressive death metal outfit THE BINARY CODE are currently on tour with Relapse tech-thrashers Revocation and French experimentalists Hypno5e on the 2010 Metal As Art Tour, and took some time out of their hectic schedule to check in from the road.

Guitarist Jesse Zuretti writes, “We've just rounded the turnpoint to begin our trek back east! From the very start of tour we knew we were going to have a good time."

"As I'm sure some of you may have heard, we were in a pretty bad van accident just a few days into the tour. The guy whom hit us was found responsible in full for the accident, and rightfully so. Nevertheless, our drummer, Umar (along with our wizardly manager), pulled it together and found a way for us to continue the tour in a minivan rental. If I might add, we also would've been homebound if it weren't for Hypno5e and Revocation sharing gear and stow space."

"So, we get asked, 'What were your favorite places to play so far?.' I think we can all attest to Chicago, IL, Austin, TX, San Francisco, CA, and Seattle, WA being extraordinarily fun to play and visit. Brett (bass) was stoked on the miniature halfpipe at the Boise, ID venue, Gustos. Personally, I was most excited for Kuma’s Corner in Chicago. I had the Goblin Cock burger, which was outrageous."

"Aside from a few setbacks with van issues, local inhabitants incoherently trying to fight nearly a dozen of us for no apparent reason, and crazy weather/terrain, we've had more than a blast. We've been very surprised at the amount of people whom bought the album coming out to see us."

"We definitely feel very close to the guys in Revocation and Hypno5e at this point. We're all having the time of our lives playing music every night to people all across the country. We definitely foresee pursuing this as far as we can. This became evident when we realized we have less than two weeks until we're home, and we don't want to be back yet!"

"Come out and rage with us!”
