RIP Every Time I Die

2022-01-18 by daysofthunder | 288 Comments
It appears American metalcorers Every Time I Die are no more.

After recently canceling some UK tour dates and vocalist Keith Buckley announcing a hiatus from the band, remaining members Jordan Buckley, Andy Williams, Stephen Micciche and Clayton Holyoak released the following joint statement on social media late Monday:

"While we hoped to come to an agreed upon legal statement that outlined the truth, we were informed today of something planned to be released not mutually agreed upon that consists of inaccuracies and controls a narrative to benefit one.

There has been no direct communication with Keith, because it's either impossible for direct communication with him solely or we've been cut off to any and all communication by him himself.

Every Time I Die was these 5 members, and we were never budging or accepting any changes. Simply, there is zero truth about the band continuing on with a new singer. Lastly, we wouldn't be where we are today without every single person that's backed the band in any & all ways.

While we're extremely disappointed in how this was played out online in front of you, your support and the memories we have because of you all will always be cherished."

Keith Buckley has not provided a statement as of this writing.

ETID had just released their ninth album Radical last October.

^^looks like evidence that ETID was trying to kick Keith out, but there's still a lot of unknowns.

It could mean a) they were going to replace him and continue on with another singer, or b) they had no plans to continue as a band, but wanted him legally disconnected from any future business decisions (merch, licensing, etc).

Either way, looks like these guys are done and honestly I wish they would just deal with this behind close doors, it's embarrassing

After reading Keith's post I feel like Keith wanted his brother out of the band and the rest of the dudes weren't having it and decided to legally kill the band. They got the tip Keith was gonna post the legal document they sent to do so, so they made the post and burned all the socials. Idk im reading too much into it but they were my favorite band and I thought they'd be around forever. Fucking sucks man

Bummer to see these guys call it quits. I haven't exactly kept up with them in recent years but all of the newer stuff I have heard is dope. Their earlier material up until The Big Dirty played a big role in my journey going down the rabbit hole of extreme music and I always loved their oddball way of incorporating those southern fried riffs into their coregisbord jams.

It does seem a little strange for things to end on legal terms beyond just a simple statement so it does seem like there is some fishy behind the scenes legal ramifications but eh who knows.
At least they left behind a string of classic to near classic metalcore albums. Most bands would be happy with just one. Hope the dust settles peacefully enough.

This is from October and it gives some decent insight, most shocking thing is learning that Jordan pretty much wrote all the guitar riffs over two to three years with the goal of one riff written a day, because Andy didn’t have time to write because of other job.

I hope this gives Keith the opportunity to get the help he so clearly needs, if you look at interviews and Twitter the man hasn't been in a good space for at least a year. One of the greatest legacies of any hardcore band and it had to end with a cease and desist. Gutted I won't be able to see them again, had my tickets for next month and everything. Still, I have some amazing memories seeing them and the music isn't going anywhere.

yes agreed, it is a real shame, and def not an ending befitting such a group of legends however, perusing the twitter of Keith and the other band members, it's becoming clear to me that something is not adding up.

Either one or both of the parties isn't revealing everything truly going on behind the scenes. I hope they can shelve the drama and resolve it like og friends again but it's seeming that that's a pipe dream

however they feel, hope theyre alright, in particular Keith, i agree that he seems to have been acting odd lately

Nah, it's been like that for as long as I can remember (so minimum 3/4 years, maybe also before I was here, idk). It references their uncanny ability to get averages of 4/5 (here) for most of their material, nothing to do with the number of members. It definitely looks dodgy now though, haha.

I'm gonna say something weird but has anyone looked at Keith's eyes in any of the recent press interviews or band pictures? Dude looks super out of it. I even thought that in the music video for "Post-Boredom" he looked a bit off. I know the dude has found sobriety and is trying to get his life back on the rails, but there seem to be some serious mental health things going on with him. I wish him the best.

I put off watching all the Keith interviews from the Radical release cycle because I got David Koresh vibes and after watching them now, the guy indeed seems like an MKUltra'd shell of himself. Sad that the last song in the ETID canon is the abomination that is "We Go Together", easily the weakest ETID closing track since Pretty Dirty off of Gutter Phenomenon. Low Teens was their opus and creative peak.

That is true, but Keith used to be pretty witty and fun about it, almost as if he was telling an eloquent story about uneloquent things - bad people, feelings, or a type of sin, like on Ebolaroma or Decayin’ with the Boys.

Here there are some good songs lyrically like “Thing With Feathers”, but then the political songs are basically like, “Republicans are bad, so we are fucked forever and there is hell on earth, let’s kill the Republicans, burn down the US, and also fuck you die”

Now I have no issue with him taking a left-wing stance, it’s just on Radical it’s very one-note and tiresome, maybe radical means radical left-wing, idk, but to me he’s just done a lot better in the past lyrically.

Vox are still great though which is insane for being 42 in this style
