It really, really sucked the way that metalcore maniacs Every Time I Die ended. After two decades of releasing killer record after killer record, the Buffalo, New York crew ended in a clusterfuck that seemingly pitted singer Keith Buckley against his bandmates via a “he said, she said” public feud. Fortunately, the other members of Every Time I Die are still on good terms and we now have more info about that new band they were talking about earlier this year, when guitarist Jordan Buckley said they’d been jamming at an Air BNB:
“Yo how fuckin dope is it that the only person who knows what our new parts sound like is the dude that was staying at our Air BNB this week?! ???? Thanks for letting us practice Connor! You fuckin rule!”
Jordan Buckley and second guitarist Andy Williams, bassist Stephen Micciche and drummer Clayton “Goose” Holyoak all appear to be moving further along with that new band, based on a series of tweets from Buckley, Jordan (just “Buckley” from here on out).
An Instagram post from Holyoak shows that producer Jay Zubricky, who worked on 2016’s Low Teens with Every Time I Die, is involved with the new project. Clips posted to Twitter by Buckley show the band him rehearsing with Holyoak on August 3 and with the full band on August 7. On August 8, Buckley tweeted a brief clip of a recording being played inside the studio with the caption “There’s that word again”.
Buckley confirmed in a tweet last night that these are just demos and that Williams didn’t record on those because he’s busy as a professional wrestler for All Elite Wrestling, but that “he’s always with us in spirit.”
Despite all of the information that Buckley shared so far, there’s still no disclosed timeline about when we can expect to hear actual, full songs from his new outfit or what it will be called, but you know that MetalSucks will obsessively—errr, faithfully—cover every new development with the quartet.
Goose is back! And we’re shit riffing for birthdays, anniversaries, pick me ups, Labor Day, a dude got one to scare a snake out of his house, or just treat yourself. You’ve been through a lot. You deserve it. We’re keepin this one tho cuz it’s sick. https://t.co/GbDMDq1sjn ???????????? pic.twitter.com/pkdyNjKM1r— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) August 4, 2022
We’re saving Andy’s spot while he wisely tends to all the success that pro wrestling has brought him! But he’s always with us in spirit— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) August 8, 2022
