Guitarist Dustie Waring Absent Amid Opening Dates Of Between The Buried And Me’s Latest Tour


Between The Buried And Me‘s ‘The Colors Experience‘ tour commenced late this week, once again without guitarist Dustie Waring. The latter musician had previously sat out numerous dates last year amid a rape allegation made against him for a past incident which he denied took place. Waring would go on to rejoin his bandmates onstage in September of last year, with his lawyer at the time stating:

“Mr. Waring has always maintained his innocence regarding the false allegations against him. He has met those accusations head-on with the truth, and the facts speak for themselves. He has put this unfortunate situation behind him and is thrilled to finally get back to making music.”

However, the initial dates of this run found Tristan Auman of Sometime In February once again filling in for Waring, with no explanation provided by the band themselves. While Waring doesn’t appear to have publicly addressed his absence either, he did share videos of himself yesterday, March 09th, sat with fellow musicians Emil Werstler and Ryan Pratt watching boxing and old Alice In Chains performances.

Between The Buried And Me‘s current tour finds them performing their 2007 album “Colors” in full on night 1 in each city, while night 2 sees them running through “Colors II“. The Acacia Strain, who are also on the bill, are playing their 2023 opus “Step Into The Light“, along with select tracks from their 2004 sophomore album “3750” and 2014’s “Coma Witch” on night 1. Their second night plans have them playing “Failure Will Follow” and the track “Carbomb“.
