Native Construct guitars

I’ve been waiting for this album for 3 years. When they posted their playthrough video of a demo version of “Chromatic Aberration” 3 years ago, I was immediately hooked on this band consisting of Berklee students called Native Construct. Now, lo and behold, the album is done and they’ve posted a playthrough video of a full track titled “The Spark of The Archon”, and my, it’s some delicious prog goodness.

dutch book

Despite dropping a successful sophomore solo record last year and writing/recording his band’s hotly anticipated seventh full-length record Coma Ecliptic, Between the Buried and Me frontman Tommy Rogers (doing business these days as Thomas Giles) managed to find time in the past year to score an indie film.

Dutch Book, directed by James Repici, is the story of a Florida teenager who launches a scheme to pay off his father’s gambling debts. Rogers provides the film with a sonic backdrop of pulsing soundscapes and driving electronics, surely drawing influence from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross‘ forray into film scores. While the film has began making rounds in the film festival circuit, Rogers dropped the Dutch Book original score via Bandcamp, and you can stream it in its entirety after the jump.

Any time Between the Buried and Me works on a new record, it immediately jumps to the top of the year’s most anticipated albums. Their track record speaks for itself; they’ve never released a bad album, and depending on who you ask, each record is better than the last.

This time around, the group are doubling down the hype of their new opus of a rock opera. Instead of taking up residence in Jamie King’s Basement Studio to record their eighth studio album, the band revisited The Fidelitorium (where they recorded their recent Future Sequence live release) for much of the tracking. It looks like that won’t be the only change the band are making for their new record, either; thanks to bassist Dan Briggs on Twitter, we now know that Jens Bogren (The Ocean, Opeth, Katatonia) will be handling mixing duties.

A while ago, we urged you to help make the Seven Year Storm, brainchild of one Sean Lang, happen. We’re very pleased to say that the dream became a reality and not two days ago, Mr. Lang was able to release the EP to the world! And it’s brilliant. Of course it’s brilliant, we told you it would be. Sean blends styles ranging from post-rock and adventure prog a-la Scale the Summit, with more defined passages in the veins of Between the Buried and Me. Head on over the jump for your first taste!

It’s no secret that North Carolina’s Between the Buried and Me have been working on their upcoming seventh LP with producer Jamie King. It’s also no secret that it’s been hyped up as a full-blown rock opera and could very well be a big turning point for the band’s future. But what was lesser known is that the band was planning a brief tour through the Midwest and East coast this April! Support will be coming from Chicago’s The Atlas Moth, who will help bring a lot of diversity to the tour with their unique brand of psychedelic and densely-layered post-sludge metal. Dates are posted below!
