Automata II

Automata I is the eighth studio album by the American progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me. It was released on March 9, 2018 through Sumerian Records, their first release with the label. It is the first part of a two-piece album—the second, Automata II, was released on July 13, 2018.[1]

Between the Buried and Me began recording the album on July 31, 2017 and finished on September 6, 2017,[2] announcing it in January 2018 with 2018 tour dates set with The Dear Hunter and Leprous.[3][4] Longtime producer and collaborator Jamie King returned to produce the album.[5]

A music video for “Condemned to the Gallows" was released on January 19, 2018. On March 9, 2018, the band released the second music video from the album for the song, "Millions". The album was released later that same day.


About the album, guitarist Paul Waggoner added as well:[6]

We never want to repeat ourselves. We’re always trying to do something different, and this album fell right into that sort of pattern. We push ourselves into new places, while retaining our basic sound. Musically, we go somewhere that’s fun and challenging. We never know how it’s going to turn out. These are uncharted waters for us. We’ve never written an entire piece and presented it in separate parts like this.
