Sumerian Records proudly welcomes THOMAS GILES (aka Tommy Rogers, the visionary vocalist and keyboardist of Between The Buried and Me) and his new album VELCRO_KID is out November_04_2016.
The music was co-produced and mixed by Navene Koperweis and additional mixing by Jamie King. This new record also features guest vocals by Devin Townsend and Jake Troth.
The deluxe edition (available on CD, digitally, and on vinyl coming soon) includes both the full album and instrumental versions. Exclusive pre-order bundles are now online at www.sumerianmerch.com.

Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen says, “Tommy is a very unique, creative mind in heavy music and I think his versatility as an artist is brilliant. I’m excited for Sumerian to help bring the world another side of his art that’s a much different dimension than BTBAM.”
With Velcro Kid I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and channel a part of me that I haven’t explored yet. Taking a more electronic stance was a very natural evolution for me at this moment. The outcome was something I never would have imagined and I’m very excited for the world to hear what’s been in my head for the last couple of years. I’m more than fortunate to have Navene work with me on this music and have some amazing collaborations on a few of the tracks. This is my next chapter, and I’m already looking forward to where my music will go in the future. As always, thanks for listening.
