Here’s the official press release:
Celebrated progressive rock / cutting-edge metal band BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME (also BTBAM) has inked a worldwide recording deal with Metal Blade Records. The award-winning North Carolina quintet will kick off the partnership with the April release of its new album The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues [called it! – Ed.]
“We are delighted in the opportunity to join the Metal Blade family,” commented BTBAM 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.”
But wait, that’s not the best part:
Further details on The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues will be made available soon. The LP will contain the first new music from BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME since the release of 2009’s The Great Misdirect, which landed at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week of release.
This leads me to believe one of three things: that “LP” is a typo, it’s a short LP, or there’s a lot more music than they told us about. I’d much prefer the latter.
The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues comes out April 12th, the same day Last Chance to Reason‘s Level 2 comes out. Audiogasm much?
