Between The Buried and Me Announce “Colors” Ten Year Anniversary Tour

As I’ve got too much on the creative docket today I cannot offer up much more than a simple “hey look it’s another awesome tour” as my preamble to the news at hand and with that said please dig into the official press copy, poster and rundown of dates for the BTBAM “Colors” Ten Year Anniversary Tour. Here we go.

The Press Release:
To celebrate the ten year anniversary of their classic album, Colors, Between The Buried And Me will embark on a special tour this September/October, which will see the band perform the record in its entirety! Dubbed the “Colors Ten Year Anniversary Tour”, the trek also features The Contortionist, Polyphia, and Toothgrinder as support.

Between The Buried And Me comments: “‘Colors’ was our statement of rebellion. We were challenging how others identified us in the context of heavy metal, and ultimately we were challenging how we identified ourselves. It was some kind of musical manifesto, in which we found new purpose and direction simply by throwing caution to the wind and purging every ounce of creative energy we had, regardless of how unhinged it may have seemed at the time. Ten years have passed and we are lucky enough to be able to play this album from front to back on stage for our amazing fans. See you all soon!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I think back on it, I was not even listening to BTBAM before the album “Colors” came out and I have to thank my friends over at the Sea Of Tranquility website for getting me started on the catch-up. Since then I’ve done my best to keep up with the band when they are on tour or releasing new stuff. They are quite the sonic spectacle live and the music they deliver just brings you to another place. This is Progressive Metal done with some serious creative edge and if you are skeptical about my declaration just come and see them once and I think you will also be convinced. As far as the other bands are concerned, I have only ever heard bits and pieces here and there so you can be rest assured that if I happen to attend our regional date that I will be getting into the venue nice and early to check everyone out. What do you readers think about this new tour for the guys? For that matter what do you think of this now seminal work of their in “Colors”? You can let me know all of your deepest thoughts down in the comments section below. Bring it on. Until next time.
