Every Time I Die Biography
Apocalyptic meteor showers. Merciless and indiscriminant retro-viral transmission. Political espionage. Systematic elimination of multi-cultural nation-states, Every Time I Die and rampant corporate funded ecocide.
Only one of these phrases is exempt from the nightmarish mural that American culture has fashioned with its pitiless hands and titled “Reality”, which we display indefinitely in the halls of our nations consciousness. That phrase is “apocalyptic meteor showers”, as it is actually part of a piece we call “The Future” which will be publicly showcased at a later date. The rest are insisting the attention of our population every minute of every waking hour, whether it be through subjective media coverage, unashamed domination of our city landscapes, full U.S tours with other metal/hardcore acts or corrupt lobbying geared towards steel industry tycoons by self-righteous right wing tyrants. Yet, there is hope of eliminating a majority of these pestilences with the advent of a broader social consciousness and a communal willingness to accept the responsibilities that come with utopian freedom. Every Time I Die, however, is not included in this aforementioned majority of curable social ailments, as the awareness which will hopefully one day eradicate most of these foes is the very fodder upon which Every Time I Die thrives.
Born in the winter of 1998, Every Time I Die quickly garnered local acclaim by releasing a four song self titled demo. Playing shows with friends in Victory Records own Buried Alive, vocalist Keith Buckley, guitarists Andy Williams and Jordan Buckley, drummer Michael Novak and bassist John McCarthy set off through New York State and parts of Canada on a short tour, where they were scouted by Chris Logan of Goodfellow Records and offered an opportunity to put out the five song E.P entitled “The Burial Plot Bidding War”. Though a somewhat inexperienced and coarsely recorded release, it established the foundation of gritty, unrequitedly heartfelt and chaotic music that Every Time I Die would build upon with architectural precision.
After replacing John McCarthy with fellow Buffalonian Aaron Radaczyk, Every Time I Die signed with Ferret Records and, following a fluctuating and often brief routine of touring, recorded Last Night In Town at Zing Studios with Adam D- drummer and now guitarist of the renown metal act Killswitch Engage. Drawing inspiration from a spectrum of musical predecessors, the band found itself producing a compendium of musical tastes and talents, fusing a genuine and infectious rock n’ roll attitude with meticulously crafted guitar work, defined and punishing drums, intricately woven bass lines and darkly sarcastic and unorthodox lyrics. What they were in the midst of producing would later be hailed as “one of the top five best cd’s of 2001” by the online hardcore dignitaries at Lambgoat and acclaimed in magazines such as Revolver and Alternative Press for its refreshing interpretation of what hardcore music has become and would hopefully evolve into.
Once the C.D was released in March of 2001, Every Time I Die immediately enlisted in an East Coast tour with headliners Killswitch Engage and whetted their appetite for a touring schedule that would commit them to the relentless roads of North America for over two years. Joining forces with bands like Trustkills Poison The Well, Eighteen Visions and American Nightmare, Every Time I Die had done almost everything within the first year of their freshmen release that such a young band could hope to accomplish. In the summer of 2002, after once again replacing their bassist with current member Steve Micciche, they were part of a brief Warp Tour stint, two full U.S tours with Bleeding Through, Norma Jean and Hopesfall, and helped to promote the artwork of the much acclaimed Derek Hess by co-headlining one of two stages at a yearly festival in Cleveland known as HessFest. Since then they have played Hellfest in Syracuse N.Y for three years in a row, South by Southwest in Austin, Texas and Furnace Fest in Birmingham, Alabama. In fact, it was their performance at New York’s CMJ fest, which earned them the opening spot for the traveling road show of Jackass’s Steve-O. Recently, they have toured Canada and some of the East Coast with two of the biggest hardcore/metal bands in the world, Converge and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
Their admirable work ethic, their unique blend of southern rock and technical “noise core” and their contagious personalities which are teeming with cynical humor and a refreshing lightheartedness have helped Every Time I Die amass a fan base of all ages across the country. Their indefinable musical compositions cater to enthusiasts of emo, metal, hardcore and rock n’ roll alike without compromising its sincerity or energy. Their live performances are an emotional catharsis as well as an inspiring interaction between the band and their audience. But more so, it is an undeniably memorable exemplification of what happens when a group of five individuals dedicate their lives to their craft in the hopes of inscribing a timeless quote written with the universal language of music.
