BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME on ‘Automata’, 2018 Tour

Prog titans, Between the Buried and Me, have announced details of their new project, Automata, and 2018 tour. The album will be a two-part release, the first of which, ‘Automata I’, will be out on March 9th via Sumerian Records. The second half is slated for release this summer.


Vocalist, Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr. reflected on the concept of the album and the current state of experiencing music,

Every single week, music comes and goes. We can get music instantly, and with this luxury, the listener has a hard time sitting down with albums and exploring their every twist and turn. Because of this, we have decided to release our new album in two parts…our music is dense and our albums are very long, so we want to give people two separate moments to dive in this year and explore new music that we’ve put our entire being into. We hope you enjoy the creation as much as we’ve enjoyed the process.

No strangers to innovation, BTBAM is sure not to disappoint.
