The world already knows how much I’m in love with Between the Buried and Me, so I’m just gonna skip all the foreplay and dive right on into the news. BTBAM have announced a European tour with Periphery and The Safety Fire, set for this Fall. Here are the dates:

10/10 Antwerp, BEL – Trix (without Periphery)
10/11 Amsterdam, NET – Melkweg
10/12 Koln, GER – Luxor
10/13 Munster, GER – Sputnikhalle
10/14 Copenhagen, DEN – Vega
10/16 Stockholm, SWE – Debaser Slussen
10/17 Gothenburg, SWE – Sticky Fingers
10/18 Hamburg, GER – Logo
10/19 Berlin, GER – Lido
10/20 Prague, CZE – Rock Cafe
10/22 Bratislava, SLO – Randall Club
10/23 Budapest, HUN – Durer Kert
10/24 Wien, AUT – Szene
10/25 Munchen, GER – Backstage
10/27 Novara, ITA – Rock’n’Roll Arena
10/28 Zurich, SWI – Dynamo
10/29 Stuttgart, GER – Universum
10/30 Frankfurt, GER – Batschkapp
10/31 Paris, FRA – La Maroquinerie

It should be a really cool tour, and coincides with the release of their new album, so you silly Europeans will get to hear the new songs live first. Lucky devils; hopefully America will get a little something during Summer Slaughter! Speaking of the new album, bassist Dan Briggs was recently interviewed by AbsolutePunk for the upcoming Trioscapes debut, and was asked about the new BTBAM album. To cut to the good stuff for you guys, here’s what we’ve learned:

  • Writing is done!
  • They’ll back to working with Jamie King from May 14, recording for five-six weeks. Even longer for mixing.
  • Dan describes the album as, “[not having] much in common soundwise with Parallax. It’s pretty fucking out there.”
  • It’s more cohesive between songs as a solid piece of music, even moreso than Colors.
  • It will be out this Fall.

If the thought of a BTBAM concept album that’s even more cohesive between songs than Colors doesn’t get you excited, check your pulse. I’m obviously biased, but no other album on the horizon is as exciting as this. Keep your eyes out for Parallax II, out this Fall on Metal Blade.
