It gives us immense pleasure to announce that we will be joining Between The Buried And Me on their European tour this autumn in support of their forthcoming album 'Coma Ecliptic'!
"I was first introduced to BTBAM’s music shortly after they released 'Alaska' and I was instantly hit with this crazy wall of sound! Back then their music sounded nothing like any of the other stuff I was listening to so they pretty much opened my eyes (or ears!) to this world of extreme and progressive music. I won’t lie, it took me a few spins to adjust to this new sound but soon I was hooked and went out to get my very first set of double pedals so I could attempt some of those blast beats! And I’ve been annoying my bandmates with them ever since!! So, for me, it’s a seriously surreal thought to be offered a tour support slot with one of my favourite bands from my youth and one that had a real impact on my musical development."
"Between the Buried and Me has been one of my favorite bands since their 2007 release "Colors". Dan Briggs' approach to bass playing hugely inspired me when I was learning bass in high school, especially his virtuosic playing on "Viridian". I could never have imagined I'd be playing on the same stage as BTBAM, let alone supporting them on an international tour. Needless to say, this is an absolute dream come true, and I can't wait to see them slay on this tour!"
The guys will be joining BTBAM for fourteen dates in total between the 16th and 30th of September including seven UK dates, as well as France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany, finishing off at Euroblast Festival in Cologne on the 1st of October.
