Between The Buried And Me’s Dan Briggs To Miss Upcoming Shows After Testing Positive For COVID-19

Between The Buried And Me’s Dan Briggs will be missing the band’s upcoming shows after testing positive for COVID-19. The bassist, who is fully vaccinated, is only experiencing mild symptoms.

The band issued the following statement:

“Well, we ALMOST defied the odds and made it through this tour with no issues. Unfortunately, and in spite of taking every feasible precaution possible, Dan tested positive for a breakthrough case of Covid-19 after our Fort Lauderdale show.

His symptoms are mild, and he will be fine. The rest of us tested negative and have tested negative each day since 🤞🏻 Obviously, this means Dan will miss tonight’s show in Nashville and the two shows in Charlotte.

It’s worth mentioning, however, that the Danimal is a beast untamable by any earthly mechanism and he refused to let this misfortune prevent his sonic thunder from being on full display. So, while quarantined in his hotel room, this savage monster recorded all of his bass and keyboard tracks for the entire set.

While you will not see him on stage, you will no doubt bear witness to the aural splendor of his virtuosic bass guitar stylings. We apologize to all our wonderful fans for this hiccup, but we are committed to honoring our commitment to y’all by playing these shows, so long as we can safely do so without jeopardizing anyone’s well-being. Stay safe, and we hope to see y’all at the gigs!”

Between The Buried And Me Premiere “The Future Is Behind Us” Music Video

Between The Buried And Me have premiered a new video for their new song “The Future Is Behind Us.” This track is from the band’s new album “Colors II,“ which was officially released today (August 20).

Director Erez Bader commented:

“‘Colors II”s opening track is an invitation for the listener to interpret the album, or rather the entirety of BTBAM’s work, however they see fit. As a longtime fan (half my arm is tattooed with ‘Parallax II”s artwork) I’ve always interpreted the first ‘Colors’ to be about the fading of creativity and originality in our world, and the message that your legacy is defined by the things you’ve created during your lifetime. It’s both a pessimistic view that the world is going to shit, while also being a rallying cry for budding artists to overcome hardships and remind themselves why their work is important.

The song ‘White Walls’ closes out the first ‘Colors’ album, representing both the death of the colors now faded, yet the blank canvas they left behind — an invitation to start anew. This is where my music video for ‘The Future Is Behind Us’ begins. While the band’s mind-blowing performance is front and center, the subtle narrative begins within these quite literal white walls, which in this video I think of as a sort-of temple. The ‘sculpture people’ as I call them (who represent the first album), congregate at this towering, abstract painting within the white walls; a holy conduit they’ve sought to undergo a long-awaited dark ritual. Tommy floats past the world, carrying this growing darkness as it blooms around him in the wilderness and is brought into our cities, eventually culminating in the dark sludge that entirely consumes the white walls themselves. Within the darkness, the sculptures birth a child — a creation of their own, and it’s released into our world.

There’s a weird transfer of power as a work of art nears completion. It becomes its own author and starts guiding you to its final form; something new entirely. So while I have my own intention behind the video, I’m forced to be cheesy and quote the new record, ‘I’m not the writer, it’s you.'”

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.”
