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 section of lyrics intheCountingCrows song, 'Ghost Train': "Took the cannon ball down to the ocean/Across the desert from the sea to shining sea/I rode a ladder thatclimbed across the 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 Of MyselfTo Kill'. These three tracks were re-recorded for the band's self-titled debut album, released through Life force Records in 2002. The album includes thetrack 'Arsonist', a protest against the beliefs and practices of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas.The song 'Aspirations' became the band'sfirst music video. At the time,the release was not widely known, but did manage to catch the attention ofVictory Records, to which they 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'Camilla Rhodes'.'Mordecai'was produced as their second music video. The album was re-released in 2006 with a live DVD of the band's performance at The Cat's Cradle in ChapelHill, North Carolina on July 17,2005. Mark Castillo played drums on The SilentCircus,replacingWillGoodyear, though for the live DVD BlakeRichardson, Dustie Waring, and Dan Briggs had already joined the band, and recording for the third Between The Buried And Me album,Alaska,wasalready finished. After the release of The Silent Circus, the band went through numerous members before the current line up was assembled for Alaska. Ondrums, Mark Castillo was replaced by Jason Roe, and later by Blake Richardson. On guitar, Nick Fletcher was replaced by Shane Blay, and later by DustieWaring. And on bass, Jason King (not to be confused with their engineer/producer JamieKing)was replaced by Kevin Falk, and later by Dan Briggs. Thisremains 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 music video. Thealbum featured the songs 'Selkies: The Endless Obsession', 'The Primer', and 'Backwards Marathon' as singles. Then in the following year, the bandreleased The Anatomy Of, a collection of covers of bands that influenced Between The Buried And Me, including Metallica, King Crimson, Pantera,Queen, Pink Floyd, Earth Crisis, Counting Crows, and Soundgarden. In September 2007, the band released their fourth studio album, Colors. Band members have said that "it's a 65 minute opus of non-stop,pummeling, beautiful music... we have described this release as 'new wave polkagrunge'."The band has also described the album as "adultcontemporary progressive death metal". On November 6, 2008 the song 'Prequel To The Sequel' was made available as downloadable content for the video game RockBand2, for free down loadto users who redeemed a one-time use code in new copies of the game. Since then, the tracks 'Mordecai','Obfuscation','Alaska' and 'Selkies:The EndlessObsession' have also been made available via the Rock Band Network. On May 31, 2009, the group went into the studio to record their fifth original album,The Great Misdirect. They have described one song as having"a noisy Coalesce breakdown, 3/4 Mastodon groove, 9/8 The MarsVolta, Queen chromatic build up,and Megadeth chorus".Tommy Giles Rogers hadstated that they planned to "outdo Colors".
