NEWS: Between The Buried And Me fix the error and announce “Colors II”!
The prequel to the sequel has always been the work of Progressive Metal titans Between The Buried And Me and on 20th August they will be unveiling and album which sees them return to the work of 14 years ago with a sequel to 2007’s critically acclaimed “Colors“. The first single from that in “Fix The Error” premiered on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal and features drum solos from a parade of Kings in Mike Portnoy, Navene Koperweis and Ken Schalk.
“Especially with 2020, we really wanted to give it all we could and show the world we’re still here” explains Tommy. “That’s part of the reason we named it Colors II. We were in a similar spot when we did the first Colors. Back then, we had just gotten done with OZZfest. We were wondering, ‘Where do we belong in this music scene?’ We still struggle with that. At both of these moments in our career, we decided to just be ourselves and write the best album we can. We came out guns blazing, and I feel like it’s some of our most creative material in a long time.”
“Colors was very much our attempt at a do-or-die statement” recalls Paul. “We had to establish our identity and be who we really wanted to be in order to have a career. This time around, our industry was shutdown for a year. Once tours were cancelled due to the Pandemic, we were like, ‘We’ve got to write a record, and it’s got to be good’. We had to do something next level”
