Progressive powerhouse Between the Buried and Me will be releasing "Future Sequence: Live at the Fidelitorium" next month on Metal Blade Records. The September 30th release will be the band and label's first ever blu ray release. The video will also be available on DVD and via digital retailers. "Future Sequence: Live at Fidelitorium" was recorded at Fidelitorium Recordings outside of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. In the video, fans will see Between the Buried and Me performing their more recent album "The Parallax II: Future Sequence" in its entirety. The 2012 album was rated by Guitar World Magazine as #18 on their list of top 50 albums of the year, and earned the band praise from Decibel Magazine, who claimed: "the band's technical ability can now give the likes of Dream Theater and Opeth a run for their prog metal money."
Drummer Blake Richardson comments on the approach to recording this DVD/blu ray: "We've always been fans of dvds where it's just the band, you don't have any other distractions". Vocalist/keyboardist Tommy Rogers explains further: "We wanted to give the fans something that made them feel a little closer to us, and made them almost feel like they're at practice with us". "Future Sequence: Live at the Fidelitorium" will be in stores on September 30th, 2014.
"Future Sequence: Live at Fidelitorium" was directed and edited by Justin Reich, with director of photography Ismail Abdelkhalek, and audio engineers Jamie King and Kris Hilbert. Audio mixing and mastering was completed by Jamie King. Guest musicians include: Walter Fancourt (tenor saxophone, flute), Julian Hinshaw (Tuba), Will Goodyear (marimba, glockenspiel), Taya Ricker (violin), David Parks (violin), Leigh Dixon (viola), and Socrates Razo (cello).
