Between The Buried And Me announce Automata II

Between The Buried And Me have announced that July 13th will see the release of Automata II – the conclusion of their double-album Automata – through Sumerian Records. Pre-orders are now live via SumerianMerch.com.

Frontman Tommy Rogers said of the effort:

“Holding our tongues for Automata II was challenging. 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.”

Bassist Dan Briggs added:

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.”

The band will be headlining this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour. Regarding the tour, the group offered:

“We are very excited to get on the road this summer in support of Automata II. To be part of Summer Slaughter for the second time in our careers is beyond humbling. Their lineups hold a vast history of extremes and interesting music, something we strive to do with our own music. We hope to meet new bands and make new fans, and present the world the next evolution of BTBAM.”

Automata II track listing:

1. “The Proverbial Bellow”
2. “Glide”
3. “Voice of Trespass”
4. “The Grid”
