Between The Buried And Me Set October Release Date For New Album

Between The Buried have revealed an October 09th release date on Metal Blade Records for their new album. The effort will carry the title of “The Parallax II: Future Sequence” and will clock in with 72 minutes worth of new music.

Speaking on the concept guitarist Paul Waggoner offered:

“The two main characters of the story take on a journey through space and time with the unenviable task of having to cure the flaws of humanity by any means necessary. While the EP served mostly as an introduction to the characters, Future Sequence contains the action of the story.

The lyrics are written in the stream of consciousness style, which really helps to capture the perspective and emotion of the characters. We really enjoyed the challenge of writing this record, and I think we were all pleasantly surprised with how well the music and lyrics jived with one another. I couldn’t be happier with how Future Sequence turned out.”

Band frontman Tommy Rogers also chimed in, stating:

“This album is Between The Buried And Me on steroids. I feel like we have created an album that perfectly mirrors the band we’ve been trying to create since day one. An album that has sounds that will stimulate many genres and music fans alike.

A conceptual journey that takes the listener to worlds that seem familiar and worlds that make you scratch your head. From start to finish this is music we want to create, not music we think people want us to create.

We create songs that keep us (and hopefully you) excited about heavy music. Keep listening… something new will be there each time. Enjoy the music… we enjoyed writing it.”

Vision Of Disorder‘s forthcoming new album “The Cursed Remain Cursed” has now officially been given a September 18th North American release date via Candlelight Records. The song “Loveless” will serve as the first single.

Band guitarist Mike Kennedy spoke on the outing:

“We feel we accomplished a very unique, vicious and exciting record without compromising the VOD brand of hardcore. The Cursed Remain Cursed sounds like nothing we’ve ever done.”

Currently the band have the following shows booked:

09/14 London, UK – Underworld (feat. earthtone9)
09/15 Manchester, UK – Mojo Live (feat. earthtone9)
10/19 Long Island, NY – Club Revolution
11/24 Brooklyn, NY – Music Hall Of Williamsburg

All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte had some pointed words for his fellow metal frontmen who don’t speak their mind in fear of backlash; and the metal blogosphere who trash him for voicing his opinions.

Speaking via his Facebook, he offered:

“Got a FB email that said “random metal blog” said you hide behind Facebook. I submit that MOST (not all) frontmen hide behind their own band. Not willing to be honest, they’re just spineless and won’t really divulge their opinion in the fear that it may affect their band or record sales.

Now, there are a lot of honest people who really don’t have an opinion about most things, and that’s cool. I’m not here to judge them. But for those who have an opinion and won’t say what it is cause they are afraid of the possibility of negative effects, I say FUCK THAT.

I’m just as much a normal guy as any of you are. I am worth no more, and no less, than any of you reading this. So let the blogs talk shit, while they take money from labels, to promote the records, by the bands who they shit on, while they profit from talking shit about them. That’s the system, and fuck the system.”

Like Moths To Flames Robbed On Tour In Little Rock, AR

Like Moths To Flames had various items from their van stolen while on tour last night (July 15th) in Little Rock, AR. The group stated the following regarding the incident on their Twitter:

“If anyone has any heads up on who stole from our van tonight in Arkansas – PLEASE let us know. Any information helps! You can also reach us by email if you have any information that can help: likemothstoflames@gmail.com Also, please note that they didn’t steal the van itself – just things from inside of the van! Thanks everyone for the help!”

Chelsea Grin have confirmed the rumors that an audience member died in attendance during their set at today’s (July 15th) “Vans Warped Tour” performance in Toronto, ON. On that the band tweeted:

“Our hearts go out to the person who died today. We still don’t know everything that happened but it’s no time for jokes on our page.”

Initial fan reports on social media services are identifying the victim as a woman. They seem to suggest that her death didn’t appear to be from injury, but rather exhaustion or a medical condition.
