Between The Buried And Me Sign With Sumerian For New Album, Reveal Tour With The Dear Hunter & Leprous


Between The Buried And Me have signed with Sumerian Records and will release the first half of their new two part album on March 09th. That album is collectively titled “Automata“, with “Automata I” set to arrive on the aforementioned release date. The second half, “Automata II“, will arrive this summer. Pre-orders and a new song will launch this Friday, January 19th. Frontman/keyboardist Tommy Rogers commented:

“Every single week music comes and goes. We can get music instantly and with this luxury, the listener has a hard time sitting down with albums and exploring their every twist and turn. Because of this, we have decided to release our new album in two parts. Our music is dense and our albums are very long, so we want to give people two separate moments to dive in this year and explore new music that we’ve put our entire being into. We hope you enjoy the creation as much as we’ve enjoyed the process.”

According to an official press release, the album will revolve around the concept of being able to view the dreams of others, it stated of that:

“What if dreams could be broadcast for the purpose of entertainment? Could you consume the innermost thoughts of another person on screen? If you could, what does that say about an attention-starved audience? More importantly, what would become of the dreamer?”

Guitarist/vocalist Paul Waggoner added:

“We’re always trying to do something different, and this album fell right into that sort of pattern. We push ourselves into new places, while retaining our basic sound. Musically, we go somewhere that’s fun and challenging. We never know how it’s going to turn out. These are uncharted waters for us. We’ve never written an entire piece and presented it in separate parts like this.”

In other news, the band will be touring with The Dear Hunter and Leprous this spring, see below the dates.
