Check out the official BURY YOUR DEAD website HERE!

The Massachusetts band, featuring drummer Mark Castillo, vocalist Mat Bruso, guitarists Slim and Eric Ellis, and bassist Bubble, have broken up, gotten back together, gone through 14 band members and 9 tour vehicles (including buckets of bolts like a Hyundai Accent and a Kia Sefia), but theyre still together and their stronger than ever on their new album, Beauty And The Breakdown, which is easily their most focused effort to date. In the Bury Your Dead tradition, the music is heavier than granite, but the bands approach and collective attitude is light, fun and carefree. Thats what sets BYD apart from their peers, the fact that they do things you dont expect. They keep you guessing at every turn, either making you bob your head to their catchy melodies or making you mosh your brains out to their ferocious, infectious breakdowns. As Slim says, Its always down and dirty, hustle and bustle with Bury Your Dead. And that equals a damn good time.

While 2004s Cover Your Tracks featured song titles named after Tom Cruise movies, Beauty And The Breakdown doesnt name its song titles after Nicole Kidman movies, nor does it sound like its predecessor. Here, BYD named all their songs after fairytales, like Mirror, Mirror, House Of Brick, and House Of Straw. The albums artwork is laid out like a storybook, as well. Despite having such light, fun titles, the music contained on the moshable Beauty And The Breakdown is pummeling, vivid, and fast, and itll knock the wind out of you. But its also smart and tightly written. The drums sound like drums, and the guitar tone is ridiculous, says drummer Mark Castillo, who founded the band with Slim. Mat stepped up vocally and put everything he had into it...READ MORE HERE.
