Raleigh, North Carolina-based progressive rock/cutting-edge metal band BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME has inked a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records. The quintet will kick off the partnership with the April release of its new album, "The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues"."We are delighted in the opportunity to join the Metal Blade family," commented BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME guitarist Paul Waggoner. "Their commitment to heavy music over the years is inspiring and we look forward to becoming a part of the ever-growing legacy of the label. "Our new release, titled 'The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues', will hit the streets in April. We are confident that our dedicated fans will appreciate it and hopeful that we will gain the attention of some new ears as well. "In closing, I'd like to reference a quote from the illustrious Joe Dirt: 'Life's a garden, dig it.'"
"The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues" will contain the first new music from BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME since the release of 2009's "The Great Misdirect", which 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 CD was released on October 27, 2009 via Victory Records. BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME supported "The Great Misdirect" with a full-scale North American headlining tour and live dates across Europe, Australia and Japan as well as a U.S. tour as hand-picked support for like-minded rockers MASTODON.
