Some Physical Copies Of Between The Buried And Me’s “Colors II” Have Been Delayed Until October

Some of the physical copies of Between The Buried And Me‘s “Colors II” have been delayed until October 8. Despite this, vinyl orders placed through the band’s website and Sumerian Records will still arrive on August 20 alongside digital copies. The group commented:

“Due to some unexpected and fairly significant manufacturing delays, the release date for ALL CDs and retail vinyl (indie record stores, Amazon, etc.) has been delayed until 10/8. For the digital release, as well as all first pressing vinyl preordered from the BTBAM and Sumerian stores, the release date will remain 8/20. Make sense? We are sincerely sorry for any confusion or inconvenience this may have caused and as always, we are deeply grateful for the amazing support of our fans. We can’t wait for y’all to jam this record.”

Between The Buried And Me Premiere New Song “Revolution In Limbo”

Between The Buried And Me have premiered a new song titled “Revolution In Limbo.” This track will appear on the band’s new album “Colors II.“ That effort will be released on August 20 and it will serve as a sequel to their 2007 album “Colors.“ Tommy Rogers commented:

“I’m so excited for you all to hear this track!! And yes, this section is a beautiful duet with Blake Richardson and myself. We looked into each other’s eyes while recording it… actually he recorded his vocals at home because last year was scary. Remember last year?? Well, we wrote some sick shit.”

Between The Buried And Me Premiere “Fix The Error” Video

Between The Buried And Me have premiered a new video for their latest single “Fix The Error.” The track, which features guest drummers Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater), Navene Koperweis (Entheos, ex-Animals As Leaders), and Ken Schalk (ex-Candiria), will appear on the band’s new album “Colors II.“ That effort will be released on August 20 and it will serve as a sequel to their 2007 album “Colors.“ Tommy Rogers commented:

“We have finally taken our first steps into the world of animation, and it’s a sight to see! As children of the 80’s and 90’s we wanted to encapsulate that feeling we had growing up watching the wacky world of cartoons in that era. It’s uneasy, unsettling, and somehow very fun! Let’s celebrate!”

Between The Buried And Me Premiere New Song “Fix The Error”, Reveal Details For New Album “Colors II”

Between The Buried And Me have premiered a new song titled “Fix The Error.” The track, which features guest drummers Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater), Navene Koperweis (Entheos, ex-Animals As Leaders), and Ken Schalk (ex-Candiria), will appear on the band’s new album “Colors II.“ That effort will be released on August 20 and it will serve as a sequel to their 2007 album “Colors.“

Tommy Rogers said the following about the new song:

“The intention was to write a metal song with a big gospel vibe. It turned into this monster. It’s a small story on the record about this guy who lives in a big apocalyptic city. He retires from his job, but he wants to take down this huge corporation. The song is a celebration of taking down corruption and saying, ‘Fuck you’, to the man. It’s about as punk as we’ll ever get.”

He also commented on the album:

“Especially with 2020, we really wanted to give it all we could and show the world we’re still here. That’s part of the reason we named it ‘Colors II‘. We were in a similar spot when we did the first ‘Colors‘. Back then, we had just gotten done with ‘Ozzfest‘. We were wondering, ‘Where do we belong in this music scene?’ We still struggle with that. At both of these moments in our career, we decided to just be ourselves and write the best album we can. We came out guns blazing, and I feel like it’s some of our most creative material in a long time.”

“Musically, it flows like a sequel to ‘Colors‘, but it wasn’t just another version of that album. On the original, I was analyzing myself and analyzing humanity. With last year, I was in a perfect position to do that. I wrote lyrics in the same way, but they felt new. It was more of a real-world concept by virtue of making a continuation.”

Paul Waggoner added:

“‘Colors‘ was very much our attempt at a do-or-die statement. We had to establish our identity and be who we really wanted to be in order to have a career. This time around, our industry was shut down for a year. Once tours were canceled due to the Pandemic, we were like, ‘We’ve got to write a record, and it’s got to be good’. We had to do something next level.”

“There are a lot of fun nuggets. You’ll hear certain instrumental parts and lyrics that remind you of ‘Colors‘. Everything comes full circle.”

Between The Buried And Me Add Four More U.S. Dates To Upcoming Tour, Cancel Canadian Shows

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Between The Buried And Me have been forced to cancel the Canadian dates on their 20th anniversary tour. With this news, the band have also added four more U.S shows to the trek.

The group commented:

“We regret to inform all of our friends up north in Canada that we will no longer be able to play our Evening With shows as planned. Given the worldly circumstances and an inability for people to make it across the border, we unfortunately cannot risk holding out for things to possibly improve in the coming months. We will try to make up these dates in the future, however that is not something we have the ability to plan at this moment. The shows and VIP packages will all be refunded in the coming weeks.

With that, we have added four shows to fill those holes in our routing in addition to one date being changed to accommodate everything.

August 13: Poughkeepsie, NY – The Chance
August 14: Rochester, NY – Anthology

These will be live, full-band performances in the basement of Blake’s parent’s house. Two of these songs we have never played live together, so who knows what’s going to happen! There will be two performances followed by Q&A chats for subscribers and then a deep dive into the studio session where we can answer anything you want to know about the record. The streams will be free for everyone over on our Twitch channel and we will announce more details about the entire event in the coming weeks.
