"The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues", the brand new album from progressive rock innovators BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, sold 10,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 54 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD also landed at No. 5 on the Hard Music chart and No. 8 on the Independent Albums chart.

"The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues" was released on April 12 via Metal Blade Records. The three-song strong, 30-minute tour de force was recorded at Canada's Metalworks Studios and Rattlebox Studios and helmed by the Grammy award–winning producer/engineer David Bottrill (TOOL, MUSE, KING CRIMSON, DREAM THEATER).

"The response to the new album has been absolutely amazing!" commented BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME's Tommy Rogers. "It's always a rewarding experience to hear excitement about the music we create. These days it's hard to judge what people think of new music, and the early feedback on tour and the Internet has really motivated us to create an even more badass record for the second part of 'The Parallax'. See you all on tour!"

"The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues" represents BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME's musical and conceptual masterwork; the record showcases both the quintet's vivid execution and ambitious vision. The otherworldly conceptual thread linking each of the songs is mobilized around two human characters that live in different planes of existence and are separated by millions of light years, each confronted with similar personal issues. Subsequently, both characters make decisions that will change their lives, and perhaps the course of the universe, forever. Musically, the release presents aura-rich atmospheres rife with roaring volumes, corrugated rhythms and trance-inducing intricacies. Cerebral and visceral, soft and heavy, melodic and abrasive, tender and brutal, familiar and strange and taut yet sprawling and epic, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME has crafted a sound that is musically sophisticated yet primal and a disc where every new passage leads to the culmination of an epic adventure.
