Between the Buried and Me to Shred ‘Colors’ in Full on 2017 North American Tour
Yes! It’s actually happening! Between the Buried and Me will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Colors by playing the album in full on a North American tour!
In 2007, Between the Buried and Me evolved from progressive metalcore favorites to conceptual metal gods with the release of Colors. Harnessing almost unparalleled musicianship, songwriting ability and compositional character, BTBAM cemented themselves as one of the most important 21st century metal bands with Colors and the albums which came after.
"Colors was our statement of rebellion,” BTBAM profess. “We were challenging how others identified us in the context of heavy metal, and ultimately, we were challenging how we identified ourselves. It was some kind of musical manifesto, in which we found new purpose and direction simply by throwing caution to the wind and purging every ounce of creative energy we had, regardless of how unhinged it may have seemed at the time. Ten years have passed and we are lucky enough to be able to play this album from front to back on stage for our amazing fans. See you all soon!"
Between the Buried and Me will test run Colors at Prog Power in Atlanta before commencing the tour Sept. 21 in Philly. The monthlong string of dates will finish up Oct. 21 in Charlotte, N.C. The Contortionist, Polyphia and Toothgrinder have been recruited as support for the tour.
You know fans will be packing rooms to see this landmark album performed front-to-back, so make sure to grab your tickets when they go on sale May 19 at 10AM local time. Check out the full list of tour dates below and get excited for one of 2017’s most must-see tours!
