Progressive metal veterans Between the Buried and Me will be reissuing their eponymous 2002 album on vinyl via Craft Recordings, due for May 15.

This reissue, in honor of the band’s 20th anniversary and will feature a complete remix and remaster of the whole album. The record will only be available in very limited quantities.

Reflecting on Between the Buried and Me 18 years later, guitarist Paul Waggoner says:

“It’s always a strange feeling when you bring faded memories back into focus and find yourself reflecting on an adventure that started two decades ago and somehow still continues to this day. All the daily ups and downs and side to sides of being in a band can sometimes blur the past and make you forget where you came from, and why you started doing this thing in the first place.

“So it’s nice to dig up the bones of our humble beginnings, make them sound a little better, and present them to the people that have made this all possible.”

Frontman Tommy Rogers adds:

“If you told me in 2001 that this album we recorded in five days would eventually turn into a career that’s lasted 20 years, I would think you were absolutely mad. Here we are in 2020 getting to remix and remaster what started it all. It’s been a great experience listening back and giving this original Between the Buried and Me album a new life. We hope the fans enjoy this new mix by Jamie King as much as we have.

Between The Buried And Me’s debut album will be reissued on May 15 through Craft Recordings and can be pre-ordered here.
