Between The Buried And Me To Release New Two-Part Album “Automata”, Announce Tour With The Dear Hunter & Leprous

Between The Buried And Me have signed a new deal with Sumerian Records for the release of their new two part album “Automata.“ The first part, “Automata I,” will be released on March 9, while the second part, “Automata II,“ will be released this summer. A teaser for “Condemned To The Gallows” can be found below, along with the cover art and track listing for part one:

“Automata I” Track Listing:

01. “Condemned To The Gallows”
02. “House Organ”
03. “Yellow Eyes”
04. “Millions”
05. “Gold Distance”
06. “Blot”

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.”

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.”

A press release also offered some insight into the effort’s concept:

“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?”

Between The Buried And Me To Release “Coma Ecliptic Live” In April

Between The Buried And Me will be releasing their new DVD/Blu-ray “Coma Ecliptic Live“ on April 28. It will feature the band’s full album performance of “Coma Ecliptic” from their October 4, 2016 show at The Observatory North Park in San Diego, CA.

Bassist Dan Briggs said the following:

“The genesis of the ‘Coma Ecliptic‘ filming was based around capturing the look and feel of the show our lighting director Chris Hill produced for the full album set. It’s such an important record for us and our progression as a band and the visual representation captures the moods of our tragic tale so well. It’s the perfect way to wrap up the last two years we’ve been living with this album day in and day out!”
