Dan Briggs (Between The Buried And Me) Streams New Nightmare Scenario EP

Dan Briggs (Between The Buried And Me) is streaming the debut EP from his Nightmare Scenario project in full. The effort will officially be released tomorrow (July 5).

Briggs told Prog the following:

“The idea behind Nightmare Scenario is something that’s been with me for seven years and I’ve had the music for a full length written for maybe four years or so, but I really never thought that I’d be the one singing on it.

After doing a lot of records with different groups I started to feel like I needed something that was so undeniably me, every aspect of it, and I did a vocal demo that actually resonated with me and gave me the confidence that maybe I could actually do it.

Living alone in the woods and being isolated is something that’s given me more confidence over the last year to explore and I’ve released some singles in that time all whilst honing in my recording and mixing abilities, in between writing for the various other groups. Upon finishing the last demo and realising what a massive task I had ahead of me and a back half of a year jam packed with touring I was just hit with ‘I need to do something NOW’.

When I listen back to this it really is the most honest and telling point of where I am musically at 34 years old. The album is about a character on a distant planet losing track of time and reality and what their purpose is, confronted by their future and past selves to come to terms with the presence that tries to consume them and finding peace knowing it will always be a part of them but to not let it consume.”

Between The Buried And Me Announce Fall European/UK Tour

Between The Buried And Me have announced a European/UK tour that will find them playing two sets each night. The band commented:

“The “evening with” set is a curation of almost 20 years of music with the specific intent on realizing what it all means in 2019; how did we arrive here and where do we go? Sometimes the process of realization comes from breathing new life into old material. Over the two sets of music, there’s a four-part arc that will play out in the form of one cohesive night of music spanning 2002-2019.”
