In support of the new album, "The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues," Between the Buried and Me has been tearing up venues across the country for the last month with fellow bands Job For A Cowboy and The Ocean, as well as Cephalic Carnage for part of the tour. My first experience of meeting the band was behind the venue of Rocketown in Nashville, TN, where several of the guys were lifting weights, jumping rope, and stretching out as if the bus area was a gym. Just like with their music, the guys keep themselves busy and moving when they’re on tour.

"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...
