Prog metal masters and all around gentlemen Between The Buried And Me completed an extremely successful tour with Job For A Cowboy and The Ocean. Bands typically pull pranks on each other at the end of the journey and this tour was no exception. Check out this awesome video of other members of the trek do a good ole’ fashioned hillbilly hoedown during one of the last songs of BTBAM’s set. Yeehaw!!!

Made me bust out all the Waylon Jennings records I don’t own and start line dancing in my room! In other BTBAM news, the band will be embarking on a European trek with Animals As Leaders. The tour starts in September and should be righteous. Yet another tour I want to sneak into the drum case and watch these bands shred every night. Dates are below:

Rumor also has it that the two aforementioned bands will be doing a US fall run with TesseracT opening the show. Merely rumors but if true, that will be a righteous tour. We will keep you posted as soon as we find out.
