North Carolina rockers Between the Buried and Me just released their 6th studio album - The Great Misdirect - on October 27. To celebrate this achievement in proper fashion, the band is taking their show on the road as part of The Great Misdirect Tour. As inherently confusing as "The Great Misdirect Tour" sounds, make no bones about BTBAM's live shows. The band has etched their name perfecting that widespread heavy metal/nü-metal sound -- complete with hoarse, frightening vocals, power chords and that trademark frenetic metal drumming. It's nothing new or revolutionary, but goddamn does it get the fans riled up -- and those Valley metal fans are in for quite a treat come January.
|Between The Buried And Me rock so hard that they have the power to levitate their instruments.|
Between the Buried and Me's The Great Misdirect Tour rolls through The Clubhouse on Friday, January 15. Things will get underway at 7 PM.
The tour will also feature Cynic
, The Devin Townsend Project
and Houston experimental metal band Scale the Summit
. It's quite a packed bill for that ominous Friday night in January. As well, this tour is the perfect example of a metal show that could have been at the now closed Sets
, but has now sought refuge at The Clubhouse.
Tickets are $15 advance/$17 day of and info can be found at www.mantoothgroup.com
For those wondering where the hell the name "Between the Buried and Me" comes from, it is a lyric from the Counting Crows song, "Ghost Train." You learn something new every day.
