Between the Buried and Me have captured critical and fan acclaim with their 2012 full-length, 'The Parallax II: Future Sequence.' The 72-minute epic is perhaps the band's most cohesive record to date, and just like the band did with their 2007 album, 'Colors,' Between the Buried and Me are planning to perform 'Future Sequence' from front-to-back while on a headlining tour this fall.

Fortunately, the EP now offers a great deal of context as a precursor to 'The Parallax II: Future Sequence,' as Between the Buried and Me have delivered yet another marathon masterpiece.
We may have mentioned this a few times in some recent posts, but Between the Buried and Me's upcoming album 'The Parallax II: Future Sequence' is insanely awesome. The record comes out Tuesday, Oct. 9, and BTBAM fans everywhere have been pulling their hair out waiting for it to drop, so to tide you over for the next few days, the band have posted teasers for every single song on 'The Parallax II.'
