Boy, what a week for Between The Buried And Me fans. First, the band revealed that they would be a part of the 12th annual Summer Slaughter Tour alongside Born Of Osiris, Veil Of Maya and plenty more. Following that up, the band has also announced the second installment of their two-part Automata EP, Automata II which hits stores July 13th.
“Holding our tongues for Automata II was challenging,” says vocalist Tommy Rogers. “We worked so hard on these songs and finally we get to release the other half of this material to the world! I think this is some of the best material we’ve ever released. It’s a result of everything we’ve been striving for up to this point. There are plenty of twists/turns and bizarre moments, but there is also a lot of beauty in the music and the story. Automata is now complete and our antagonist found his version of home and peace. We are all in this together.”
As for bassist Dan Briggs, he follows Rogers’ point and adds, “Automata II sees us at our most dynamic and most creative. It feels like turning a page into a whole new terrain and us working all these years together to arrive at this point. It’s quirky, adventurous, melodic, dark and full of theatrics.”
