Between The Buried And Me frontman Tommy Rogers will be releasing a new solo record, ‘Pulse,’ under the name Thomas Giles.
“Creating this album was a very unique experience for me,” comments Rogers. “I honestly never thought I would get a lot of this music recorded. This record was a way for me to step back, focus on simplified song structures and really build off of melodies. Even though I love fucking my throat up by screaming, it was very nice to sit back and chill out a bit. I named the record “Pulse” because it is a collection of thoughts and experiences I’ve had through the years. It’s a very personal record and I hope the songs help people evaluate their lives and make the best of their time here. Find your pulse.”
‘Pulse,’ which was recorded with Jamie King at The Basement Studios in Winston-Salem, NC, is set for release on February 1, 2011 via Metal Blade Records.
“I hope everyone enjoys this record, as I feel there is something for everyone on it,” added Rogers. “And don’t you all worry; BTBAM is writing new material as I type. We have a very busy year 2011 planned which includes lots of new music and touring. Stay tuned.”
