Between the Buried and Me was founded in 2000 in Raleigh, North Carolina by vocalist Thomas Giles RogersJr.,guitarist Paul Waggoner,drummer WillGood year, guitarist Nick Fletcher (formerly of Empire Falls), and bassist Jason King. The band's name is derived from a sectionof lyrics intheCountingCrows song, 'Ghost Train': "Took the cannon ball down to the ocean/Across the desert from the sea to shining sea/Irode a ladder thatclimbed across the nation/Fifty million feet of earth between the buried and me".
