BTBAM to tour with JFAC and acronymless The Ocean

You know what's really good? Bulletstorm. Damn game's got me hooked like a hooker feeming for her next heroin hit. You know what else is good? Between The Buried and Me. After making me a lifelong fan with their Colors cd, and then building on that with The Great Misdirect, it just made me wish for more upon more stuff from BTBAM. Well, more is coming real damn soon.

The guys have a new record deal with Metal Blade, and they're releasing their next cd, The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues, sometime in April on their new label home, but they also have this sweet-ass tour lined up. Called the "Hypersleep Dialogues Trek," and sleep is the last thing you'll be doing at this show. Job For A Cowboy are along for the ride to help bring the evil thrash to the people. Then there's The Ocean, who will be doing their first ever U.S. tour. We've reviewed both of The Ocean's recent outings here at GMM, and we sure do love these super-smart Germans. Cephalic Carnage, grindcore's answer to Cypress Hill, will be opening the show on select dates. Speaking of dates, here's a few for ya, after the jump.

  1. Bulletstorm does look good, and I'll have to listen to BTBAM more. Can't see them when they come to Dallas in May though, I'll still be in east texas.

    I sent you mail with both my 1up and aol accounts, don't know if you got it. I don't remember my google email unfortunately...
