First Single Taken From Highly Anticipated New Album 'COLORS II' Pre-Orders Available Now Here
Wednesday, July 7th, 2021 - Grammy Award nominated progressive metallers Between The Buried And Me have released the official music video for their most recent single, "Fix The Error". The song, which features drum solos from Mike Portnoy, Navene Koperweis, and Ken Schalk, is the first to be released from their highly anticipated new album, 'Colors II', which will be released on Friday, August 20th via Sumerian Records with pre-orders available now from betweentheburiedandme.com. Speaking on the animated cut, frontman Tommy Rogers shares "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 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" [Sumerian Records]. 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.”

About Between The Buried And Me With nearly 20 years of hard-earned experience behind them, Between The Buried And Me have seen enormous success and gathered huge critical acclaim. Their fourth offering 'Colors' represented the first in a series of high watermarks. It graced numerous tastemaker lists, including KERRANG!’s “The 21 Best U.S. Metalcore Albums of All Time,” Prog Magazine's “The 100 Greatest Prog Albums of All Time,” ThoughtCo’s “Essential Progressive Metal Albums,” and Loudwire’s “Top 25 Progressive Metal Albums of All Time” and “Top 100 Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Albums of the 21st Century.” In its wake, 2015’s 'Coma Ecliptic' opened at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 and received a perfect rating from The Guardian. During 2018, they unleashed the two-part 'Automata I' and 'Automata II' to further acclaim and a Grammy Nomination. Along the way, the group toured with everyone from Mastodon and Coheed and Cambria to Lamb of God and Devin Townsend in addition to selling out headline shows around the globe and have clocked up over 100 million streams across streaming platforms. The band are also one of the only musical acts to have a rare species of prehistoric Starfish, discovered in 2018, named after them. The Amphilimna intersepultosetme (the literal Latin translation of their name) lived 67 million years ago in South Carolina.
