Yeah it has a special place in my heart as well but the reality is that most of our fans came on board with Colors or maybe Alaska so we have to cater to that, unfortunately. We would like to play some old stuff but the fact of the matter is that most people have never heard it, don’t care, and don’t know what it is.
Update: The band posted the following statement on their Facebook page:
We are an active band and we continue to write new music. As this happens, older material begins to become less relevant to what we are currently doing. If you've seen us multiple times over the last 4 or 5 years, you've probably...
We are very happy to announce that we are finally doing a DVD for The Future Sequence. In this age we live in you can watch us play any of our songs live online. So we wanted to give our fans something a little different… an intimate live performance of us playing in a studio. It will be a wonderful experience and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoy playing these songs.
Just so everyone knows, we have a merch button at the top of our page that is a listing of all our OFFICIAL merch stores. Please don’t bother buying from anywhere else as it does not in any way filter through to us, nor do we have control over the quality of the product.
Also, I know our fans are smart enough to know that if there is a new release coming out that we haven’t advertised, then we obviously have nothing to do with it and again it is only profiting some third party that has no association with the band. We’d be more than happy if you just...
Last week, I chatted with Dan Briggs of Between the Buried and Me about their new record The Parallax II: Future Sequence, which is available October 9th via Metal Blade. In the interview, Briggs says that the band is planning to play the record in its entirety when they tour the U.S. in 2013. Check out the full interview here.
Trioscapes was originally intended as a one-off project between Between the Buried and Me bassist Dan Briggs, tenor saxophone/flutist Walter Fancourt and drummer Matt Lynch. However, the trio meshed together so well that they decided to record a full album. The result, Separate Realities, will be released on May 8th via Metal Blade Records. You can stream a 7 and a half-minute opus entitled "Wazzlejazlebof" on the band's AP.net profile. The quirky, instrumental music combines elements of progressive rock, jazz fusion and psychedelic music.
Between the Buried and Me bassist Dan Briggs has a new prog rock side project called Trioscapes. The group's debut album, Separate Realities, will be released on May 8 via Metal Blade Records. Listen to a song entitled "Blast Off" here.
Metal Blade Records has signed Intensus. The band is a solo project of multi-instrumentalist/Knife the Glitter drummer Eli Litwin. The self-titled debut will feature guest spots from Tommy Rogers (Between the Buried and Me), Jerry Jones (Trophy Scars), Robert Meadows (A Life Once Lost), Jesse Korman (The Number Twelve Looks Like You), and more. Press release in the replies.
Between the Buried and Me entered Billboard's Top 200 at number fifty-seven with their latest effort, Colors, selling upwards of 12,500 units. The full-length release is on shelves now courtesy of Victory Records.
