2021-07-31 22:42:06

  Between the Buried and Me have just announced all the details to?Colors II, the sequel to their 2007 hit record, which will be released on Aug. 20 on Sumerian Records. The first single, “Fix the Error,” has also been released and features guest drum solos from Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Transatlantic, ex-Dream Theater), Navene Koperweis (Entheos, ex-Animals as Leaders) and Ken Schalk (Candiria).

  True to the spirit of the first?Colors album, “Fix the Error,” which can be heard below, is a tour de force of ambitious musicality as Between the Buried and Me expertly race through a heap of styles, ranging from thrash to quirky prog rock to folk jigs and even power metal.

  ”Especially with 2020, we really wanted to give it all we could and show the world we’re still here,” began vocalist Tommy Rogers.

  ”That’s part of the reason we named it Colors II,” he continued.?”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,”?added guitarist Paul Waggoner. “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.”

  The artwork and track listing for?Colors?II can be found beneath the “Fix the Error” lyrics and video player and pre-orders for what will be Between the Buried and Me's 10th studio album, can be placed?here.

  Starting in August, the band will also embark on a rescheduled 'An Evening With' tour where they will?play two sets each night, one with songs spanning their entire career and the other being a full performance of 2009's?The Great Misdirect. See those dates at the bottom of the page.

  Break free from the maze

  Watch the distant fires

  There’s trust in what we’ve done

  Our shallow grave of freedom

  A new life that’s just begun

  I’m the fortune teller,

  who doesn’t know his past

  Giving hope and new memories,

  to the future’s rising sun

  We’re here to bring it down

  Collapse society

  We were born for this

  It’s time to celebrate

  Celebrate

  Break free from the maze

  Doom-scroll past this frame of mind

  The last of its kind

  We now have come alive

  The horror has ceased to be

  The guest is now free

  We are free

  The mountain is rising

  Fire blasts into the sea

  A storm is coming

  Red light

  Dark room

  If you see the rainbow, there is no tomorrow

  It’s wrapped in plastic

  If you see the rainbow, there is no tomorrow

  Put your face inside it

  We’re here to bring it down

  Collapse society

  We were born for this

  It’s time to celebrate
