Between The Buried And Me Bus Fire: New Album Out Today

| 10 October 2012 | Reply

Oct. 9, 2012, LOS ANGELES – Between The Buried And Me’s critically-lauded, 72-minute opus, The Parallax II: Future Sequence, is available today via Metal Blade Records.

Between The Buried And Me’s bus caught fire this morning in England.  There are no injuries and no equipment was damaged.  There is no effect on the band’s tour.  Tour manager Courtney Warner adds: “As of now, we are at a service area awaiting transportation to a hotel.  A new bus is on its way.  We shouldn’t miss any shows because of this.  All gear, luggage, personal items and most importantly, people, are all good.  We just stink like smoke.”

The 12-track album was described by Tommy Rogers (vocals, keyboards) as: “A conceptual journey that takes the listener to worlds that seem familiar and worlds that make you scratch your head.”   The band’s 2011 predecessor, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues EP, laid the groundwork for the story behind the Parallax releases, Prospect I and Prospect II.

Loudwire described The Parallax II as ” quintessentially brilliant,” while awarding the release a perfect score. Alternative Press said the band “continue to dominate progressive metal” and are musically “expanding on every already-top-notch aspect.”  Outburn called the album “otherworldly,” while Decibel added that BTBAM are “one of progressive metal’s most singular, unique and genuinely progressive bands.”

A number of aural and visual clips have been released leading up to the release with the most recent addition audio clips from the entire release, which can be found here:  The band has also released a stunning, effects laden video for “Astral Body“: and a series of instructional videos (guitar, bass and drums) for “Telos“:
