Between The Buried And Me debut track, announce new album

Official press release: Grammy Award nominated progressive metallers Between The Buried And Me have announced their highly anticipated new album, Colors II today. The album will be released on Friday, August 20th via Sumerian Records with pre-orders available now from To celebrate the announcement, Between The Buried And Me have dropped the first single "Fix The Error." The track premiered on SiriusXM's Liquid Metal and features drum solos from an ironclad trifecta of Mike Portnoy, Navene Koperweis, and Ken Schalk. Stream "Fix The Error" here: Between The Buried and Me built their influential 2007 album, Colors, on an unwavering commitment to artistic integrity. They've only fortified that commitment on its 2021 sequel, Colors II. The circumstances surrounding both records bear key similarities, yet the North Carolina quintet—Tommy Rogers [lead vocals, keyboards], Paul Waggoner [lead and rhythm guitar, backing and lead vocals], Dustie Waring [rhythm and lead guitar], Blake Richardson [drums], and Dan Briggs [bass, keyboards]—once again stretch the boundaries of their signature sound and heavy music at large. "Especially with 2020, we really wanted to give it all we could and show the world we're still here," explains Tommy. "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." "Colors was very much our attempt at a do-or-die statement," recalls Paul. "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 shutdown for a year. Once tours were cancelled 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." Colors II track listing: 01. Monochrome 02. The Double Helix of Extinction 03. Revolution In Limbo 04. Fix The Error 05. Never Seen/Future Shock 06. Stare Into The Abyss 07. Prehistory 08. Bad Habits 09. The Future Is Behind Us 10. Turbulent 11. Sfumato 12. Human Is Hell (Another One With Love)
