Between the Buried and Me Drop Video for “The Future Is Behind Us”


Between the Buried and Me’s new album, Colors II, comes out today. I’ve yet to give it a full spin — I’ve only heard the singles as they’ve been released — but nothing’s wowed me so far. Which is just how I’ve felt about the past handful of BTBAM albums… perfectly fine, but didn’t stick, gave me little desire to go back and listen again, as much respect as I have for the band and their catalogue.

That said, I’m really digging “The Future is Behind Us,” which arrives today with a proper music video. I can’t point to any specific element of it as being somehow different or better than the band’s recent lukewarm output… I just like the song! The video is also very cool looking, with the band members playing in a stark white room; there’s something very striking about that (until it’s all flipped on its head at the end, which is also neat).

Give the video for “The Future is Behind Us” a watch below, and stream the entirety of Colors II below that (order it here). Feel free to tell me in the comments sections that I’m a dumb-dumb-head for not loving Automata or whatever.
