BURY YOUR DEAD recently parted ways with vocalist Myke Terry and replaced him with the group’s previous frontman, Mat Bruso.
“I’m so glad this song is finally out, so I’m not the only one who knows the words anymore,” commented Bruso. “I’m excited as hell to play shows this summer and see kids injure somebody to this one. I hope everyone is practicing the part they want the mic for ’cause I’m out of shape now, I can’t do it all on my own.”
The “Over The Limit II Tour” will feature support from EVERGREEN TERRACE, FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS, IN THE MIDST OF LIONS, THICK AS BLOOD, HUNDREDTH, BETRAYAL, and MURDER DEATH KILL.
Following the “Over The Limit II Tour”, BURY YOUR DEAD will head overseas for a European run with FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS and BETRAYAL.
BURY YOUR DEAD‘s last album, “It’s Nothing Personal”, landed at position No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
