Bury Your Dead set to release new album

Friday, June 9, 2006 6:41 PM PT / 6,993 views
On July 11th, Bury Your Dead will release their eponymous "Beauty And The Breakdown" album through Victory Records. BYD rise to the occasion after breaking up and reforming; having gone through 9 touring vehicles including buckets of bolts like a Hyundai Accent and a Kia Sefia. They're still together and they're stronger than ever on the new album, "Beauty And The Breakdown" - which is easily their most focused sonic offering. In the Bury Your Dead tradition, the music is heavier than granite, but the band's approach and collective attitude is light, fun and carefree bringing old school rock n roll f-you style back to the music scene; that coupled with their not to be missed live performance is what sets BYD apart from their peers. Also drawing attention from music industry folk, specifically Superhero Artist Management'’s Howard Jones who doubles as singer in Killswitch Engage and now manages the band. Bury Your Dead's brute heaviness collided with their catchy melodies, "making you mosh your brains out to our infectious breakdowns, is what keeps the kids coming back for more." As Slim says, "It's always down and dirty, hustle and bustle with Bury Your Dead." And that equals a damn good time. While 2004's "Cover Your Tracks" respectfully sold more than 80,000 copies, featuring song titles named after Tom Cruise movies, "Beauty And The Breakdown" doesn't name its song titles after Nicole Kidman movies - nor does it sound like its predecessor. Here, BYD named all their songs after fairytales, like "Mirror, Mirror", "House Of Brick", and "House Of Straw." The album's artwork is laid out like a storybook, as well. Despite having such light, fun titles, the music contained on the moshable "Beauty And The Breakdown" is pummeling, vivid, and fast, and it will knock the wind out of you. Their organic method of playing with ideas and writing songs is another key factor of what makes BYD a little bit different and a whole lotta special. "Me and Mark are like peanut butter and jelly," Slim reveals. "We don't need to lock into a practice space with a bottle of whiskey and make a thing, with details all hidden. We go into my parents'living room, where he has an electric drumset and I have a half stack, and we write and other members come in and contribute." Fun is an essential ingredient to the BYD sound, and they definitely strike the balance. "You can hear us having a good time,"

i love the band, but i admit the fairy tale titles need to go.


mickeyoneill 6/10/2006 1:15:32 PM

so let me get this straight: they went to mommy and daddy's house and wrote shit with mother goose rhymes as their main inspiration? the dude's mom was probably making them cookies and asking them politely not to curse.


Ohhhhh 6/10/2006 1:48:30 PM

new cd is gooood. and your gay asses will be moshing to it when they visit your town.


youisretarded 6/10/2006 1:57:25 PM

scenepoints 6/10/2006 11:09:39 PM

i have to disagree with whomever said that I "would be moshing to the album." No. I will assure, with however much money you would want to put on it, that there is no way in hell I would "Mosh" to such gayry.


Spike 6/11/2006 12:48:53 AM

Wonder if we'll be hearing Howard Jones on the album, if he's managing them...


burzum 6/11/2006 6:08:26 PM

Loki 6/13/2006 6:15:33 AM

nahbrahdood 6/13/2006 7:40:16 PM
