Join the Cleveland Scene Press Club. Because No News is Bad News.

Bury Your Dead has had a hell of a year so far. Singer Mat Bruso left the Massachusetts metalcore band back in December to return to school. The group quickly rebounded, recruiting former I Killed the Prom Queen screamer Michael Crafter and hitting the road. A few weeks ago, Crafter quit, citing homesickness for Australia. Still, the group trudges forward. The tour comes to town tonight with another new singer, Myke Terry, who used to be in Cassius. Fans will get a chance to see if he can tear through the tracks on last year’s Beauty and the Breakdown the same way Bruso and Crafter did. The record’s pummeling sound rubs against the songs’ fairy-tale titles (“Mirror, Mirror,” “House of Straw”) for a sly and sometimes brutal connection.
