Between the Buried and Me was founded in 2000 in Raleigh, North Carolina by vocalist Thomas Giles Rogers Jr.,guitarist Paul Waggoner,drummer WillGoodyear, guitarist Nick Fletcher (formerly of Empire Falls), and bassist Jason King. The band's name is derived from a sectionof lyrics in the CountingCrows song, 'Ghost Train': "Took the cannon ball down to the ocean/Across the desert from the sea to shiningsea/I rode a ladder that climbed acrossthe nation/Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me". Between The Buried And Me's first release was a three-song demo, containing the tracks 'Use Of A Weapon','What We Have Become', and'More OfMyself To Kill'. These three tracks were re-recorded for the band's self-titled debut album, released through Lifeforce Records in2002. The albumincludes the track 'Arsonist', a protest against the beliefs and practices of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas.The song 'Aspirations'became the band's first music video. At the time,the release was not widely known, but did manage to catch theattention of Victory Records, to whichthey later signed.Victory reissued the album in 2004 as an enhanced CD. In 2003, the band released their second studio album,The Silent Circus, featuring the singles 'Mordecai', 'Aesthetic', and' CamillaRhodes'.'Mordecai' was produced as their second music video. The album was re-released in2006 with a live DVD of the band's performanceat The Cat's Cradlein Chapel Hill, North Carolina on July 17,2005. Mark Castillo played drums on The Silent Circus, replacing WillGoodyear, though for the live DVDBlake Richardson, Dustie Waring, and Dan Briggs had already joined the band, and recording for the thirdBetween The Buried And Me album,Alaska,was already finished. After the release of The Silent Circus, the band went through numerous members before the current lineup was assembled forAlaska. Ondrums,Mark Castillo was replaced by Jason Roe, and later by Blake Richardson. On guitar, Nick Fletcher was replaced byShane Blay, and later byDustie Waring. And on bass, Jason King (not to be confused with their engineer/producer Jamie King) was replacedby Kevin Falk, and later by DanBriggs.This remains the current lineup. In the summer of 2005, Between The Buried And Me released their third studio album, Alaska. The title track became their third musicvideo. Thealbum featured the songs 'Selkies: The Endless Obsession', 'The Primer', and 'Backwards Marathon' as singles.

In September 2007, the band released their fourth studio album, Colors.
