Yesterday, we reported that Between the Buried and Me bassist Dan Brigs shared in a recent interview that the band has plans to record a performance of their recent opus The Parallax II: Future Sequence in its entirety in a studio session featuring an array of auxiliary musicians. Today, the band issued a more official update confirming the details of the future DVD release.
Between The Buried and Me have announced that they will be filming a brand new DVD in March! The concept behind this project is in contrast with the band’s ambitious and impressive live stage productions — this will feature the band in a small studio, an intimate setting in which they will perform “The Parallax II: Future Sequence” in its entirety. Joining the band for this performance will be a small group of auxiliary musicians, including percussionists, saxophone, flute, and string quartet. BTBAM will record at the Fidelitorium outside Winston-Salem, NC after the conclusion of their upcoming North American tour. Director Justin Reich will be behind the cameras for this project, and longtime BTBAM producer, Jamie King, will mix and master the audio. The release date is tentatively scheduled for the Fall.
A prior edit of the status mentioned that the band would be performing both Parallax I and II, but has since been removed, so it looks like the DVD will only feature the full-length, Future Sequence. A shame, as I was hoping for Hypersleep Dialogues. Even still, this is great news! I caught the band on last year’s headlining tour wherein they played Future Sequence in its entirety, but it’ll be cool to see the album come to life with added session musicians instead of backing tracks.
As always, we’ll share more word as it comes in.
