Between The Buried And Me To Film In-Studio Performance Of “The Parallax” For New DVD


Between The Buried And Me bassist Dan Briggs recently chatted with and had some interesting things to share. In particular he spoke of the following plans for Between The Buried And Me, Orbs and Trioscapes:

“We’re going to start writing at the end of the summer. So we might be in the studio this time next year. I’ve got a heap stuff on my plate even before then. I’ve got a record with one of my other bands, Orbs, that we recorded this past summer that’s being mixed in the upcoming weeks. I’m pretty excited about it, I’m hopeful it’ll be out by the summer.

My other group, Trioscapes, just finished writing our next record. and we’re going to the studio in April to record. Then Between The Buried and Me is doing a DVD in late March, literally the day after we get home from this next tour. There is a lot going on!

When asked to provide some details about the DVD, Briggs replied:

“Yeah, I guess we haven’t said much about it. We’re doing a very intimate studio performance of “The Parallax” and we’re having an auxiliary of musicians. Percussionists, saxophone, flute, string quartet, all kinds of stuff with us to really bring the album to life. We did a live DVD for “Colors” and that was fun, chaotic, and stressful.

I think we really wanted to take away the production, I think the way people are used to seeing us and that’s going to be a very cool and intimate performance. We’re doing it in a great studio, in Kernersville, NC which is between Greensboro where I live in Winston Salem where Dustie and Blake live.

They’ve got a tremendous live room, great old console, all kinds of fun toys there too. There will probably footage of me playing sitar I’m sure at some point! We’ll be doing that literally the two days after our tour ends in Charlotte.”
