Prog metal veterans Between the Buried and Me will celebrate their 20th anniversary with a North American tour that kicks off in May 2020.
Each night on tour the Raleigh, North Carolina-based outfit will perform two sets, the first will feature selections from their career-spanning discography while the second sees the band perform their 2009 release, The Great Misdirect, in its entirety.
The tour will kick off on 9 May in Richmond, Virginia and will make 30 stops at various North American cities before wrapping up on 19 June at The Underground in Charlotte, North Carolina. Other key stops include Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles and The Black Cat in Washington, DC.
Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 am local venue time on Friday, 17 January, via the band’s website.
Formed in 2000, Between the Buried and Me first gained traction through an active touring schedule, which included Ozzfest, plus supporting dates with likes of Coheed and Cambria, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Every Time I Die, and quickly became critical favourites for their versatile “Thinking Man’s Metal”.
The Great Misdirect was the fifth studio album from the Grammy-nominated progressive metal five-piece. A longtime fan and critical favourite, the album debuted at No.36 on the Billboard 200 album chart and was remixed and remastered as a double-LP in 2019 in honour of its 10th anniversary via Craft/Concord records
The Great Misdirect was described by Metal Injection as “an evolved and brilliant sonic wonderland”.
Between the Buried and Me were also nominated for Best Metal Performance for ‘Condemned to the Gallows’ off their 2018 album Automata I at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
The band released two albums in 2018 that were part of a double concept album which arrived four months apart from each other: Automata I and Automata II,
