Between The Buried And Me Announce Japanese, Australian and New Zealand Tour Dates



Aug. 15, 2012, LOS ANGELES — Between The Buried And Me have confirmed a fall tour spanning Japan, Australia and New Zealand with the kick-off date on Nov. 8 in Osaka, Japan.

The announcement comes as the Charlotte, North Carolina band are in the midst of a North American tour, co-headlining Summer Slaughter with a handful of headlining dates later this month. Between The Buried And Me follow the U.S. dates with an extensive European tour, which begins on Oct. 1 in Reading.

The Parallax II: Future Sequence marks the quintet’s most ambitious release to date and their first-full length release on Metal Blade arrives on Oct. 9. The 12-track, conceptual release was described by Tommy Rogers (vocals, keyboards) as: “A conceptual journey that takes the listener to worlds that seem familiar and worlds that make you scratch your head. From start to finish this is music we want to create, not music we think people want us to create. We create songs that keep us (and hopefully you) excited about heavy music.” The first single from the release, “Telos,” can be streamed at

Between The Buried And Me have sold in excess of 400,000 records since their 2002 self-titled debut. “The group’s ability to layer long, melodic arcs over squibs of dissonance has never been more surgical and soulful,” said Alternative Press of the band’s prequel to The Parallax II (2011 EP The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues). Revolver described the set as “a cohesive piece of art” and added “Between The Buried And Me are on a level of songwriting skill that few bands hope to reach…”
