This may not come as a shock to those who were privy to the prelude, but Buffalo based seminal hardcore act, Every Time I Die, unceremoniously called it quits today after a nearly 25 year run. The band had only recently released their 10th studio album, “Radical,” back in October, to near universal critical acclaim.
Today all members with the exception of vocalist Keith Buckley released statements detailing their split.
Update: Keith Buckley has posted a cease and desist issued to him by the band that also seems to detail the band’s intent to separate with the vocalist.
Mathcore Index isn’t a tabloid, so I will spare detailing the events the precipitated this disbandment, but we have lost one of the greatest bands in the history of hardcore and metal if they are truly calling it quits.
Every Time I Die was formed 1998 in Buffalo, New York and quickly became one of the biggest bands in hardcore, playing notable performances at Hell Fest and Warped Tour, and touring relentlessly throughout the duration of their career, eventually forming their own annual hometown fest, ETIDmas. The band’s sound is inarguably one of the most seminal in modern extreme music and they leave behind a legacy of incredible live performances and one the most consistently good catalogs in their genre.
