Between The Buried And Me’s frontman Tommy Rodgers has just signed with Sumerian Records under his solo project, “Thomas Giles”. His new album, “Velcro_Kid”, will be released November 4th and a single, “Strangers in a Paranoid Mind”, has been released to promote it.
Based off the single it seems like the project will have an industrial electronic sound, very similar to Nine Inch Nails. The single itself also had some similar aspects to Marilyn Manson, however I believe that will only be seen on this single and that the album itself will keep this NIN theme as a main inspiration throughout the project. The single itself sounded odd in a good way. It was very experimental, and at some points, keyboard sections and vocal parts even sounded as if they were taken off “Colors” or “The Parallax II”. Overall the single is very interesting and I am definitely looking forward to the release of this new album! Check out the new track below:
