BURY YOUR DEAD: New CD First-Week Sales Revealed

Boston-based hardcore/metal band BURY YOUR DEAD has sold 4,700 copies in the United States of its new, self-titled album to debut at position No. 176 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was recorded at Florida's Audiohammer Studios, the exact facility where their previous release, "Beauty and the Breakdown", was conceived. BURY YOUR DEAD also brought back producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, GOD FORBID), continuing with the theme of tradition. BURY YOUR DEAD drummer Mark Castillo previously stated, "All I have to say is the new BURY YOUR DEAD isn't what people are going to expect. You really have to hear this."

Milwaukee cops last month arrested a 19-year-old man accused of being part of a hammer- and bat-wielding mob that attacked BURY YOUR DEAD guitarist Eric Ellis after a local show.

According to BostonHerald.com, police say at least five men toting bats and hammers approached Ellis outside the club following the February 16 concert and snatched a bag of jewelry from him. Ellis chased the thieves and was assaulted, Milwaukee police spokesman Officer Bobby Lindsey said.

In a statement, the band said the attack was part of a "gang initiation." Lindsey said police have no evidence the incident was gang-related but the probe is ongoing.
