I think it was about a year ago while on errands with a buddy of mine and we were listening to one of the SiriusXM broadcasts of the day and enjoying a really ripping and agressive tune. As neither of us had any clue on who this might be, the system soon showcased that this was a band called Jinjer. It was my first go at them and while I didn’t know too much at the time I was pretty certain that I was listening to something that was going to take the Metal world by the throat. Now as 2019 closes its doors for the brand-new year it would appear that I was correct. Here’s the latest news from their HQ.

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!” Continue reading Between The Buried and Me Announce “Colors” Ten Year Anniversary Tour→
