Raleigh, North Carolina-based progressive metalcore quintet BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME has entered the studio to begin recording a new EP for an early 2011 release. Early video footage from the recording sessions can be viewed below.
BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME's latest album, "The Great Misdirect", sold 13,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 36 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"The Great Misdirect" was released on October 27, 2009 via Victory Records.
Vocalist Tommy Rogers told Noisecreep about BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME's Jamie King-produced follow-up to 2007's "Colors", "It's definitely a step forward for us, I think. I don't know ... when we write records, we never want to repeat ourselves, and we definitely have done that. So, I was worried when we started writing this record that we were just going to end up with something that sounds like 'Colors', and that's definitely not the case."
According to Rogers, "The Great Misdirect" is "more dynamic than we've ever been." The band, he said, tried "different things" on this record, resulting in a rather equal mix of "mellow stuff and more intense stuff. It's definitely BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME," Rogers added. "That's the coolest thing about our records. No matter what we do, it still sounds like us."
