The new full-length album from US progressive metallers Between The Buried And Me will be entitled The Parallax II: Future Sequence and will be released through Metal Blade Records on October 9th. The album will pick up where the EP The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues left off. The artwork created by artist and designer Chandler Owen (Underoath, Shai Hulud, and Hopesfall) can be seen below.

Guitarist Paul Waggoner commented: "The two main characters of the story take on a journey through space and time with the unenviable task of having to cure the flaws of humanity by any means necessary. While the EP served mostly as an introduction to the characters, Future Sequence contains the action of the story. The lyrics are written in the stream of consciousness style, which really helps to capture the perspective and emotion of the characters. We really enjoyed the challenge of writing this record, and I think we were all pleasantly surprised with how well the music and lyrics jived with one another. I couldn't be happier with how Future Sequence turned out."

Vocalist and keyboardist Tommy Rogers adds his thoughts on the musical direction of the new album: "This album is Between The Buried And Me on steroids. I feel like we have created an album that perfectly mirrors the band we've been trying to create since day one. An album that has sounds that will stimulate many genres and music fans alike. A conceptual journey that takes the listener to worlds that seem familiar and worlds that make you scratch your head. From start to finish this is music we want to create, not music we think people want us to create. We create songs that keep us (and hopefully you) excited about heavy music. Keep listening... something new will be there each time. Enjoy the music... we enjoyed writing it."

True, but still excited for this one!

I hope it will have pronounced fucking metalcore elements. Which is unlikely.

But very excited still

Hmmm, didn't like the artwork, but I'm expecting outstanding music underneath that cover. The EP was lovely.

Oh, yes.

It will definitely be worth the wait! My favorite band is gonna do it again, only this time on steroids!

I am definitely looking forward to this. Love the artwork too btw. It pleases my optical bias toward the shades of blue.

I dig the artwork.

I don't like this band, but that is some nice artwork.

They have really made me want to listen to this album. The cover isn't that bad. I'm pretty excited.

Never listened to this band, but I guess I'm the only one who doesn't like the artwork
