Metal community responds to Every Time I Die calling it quits

Posted by on January 18, 2022

 

Every Time I Die have sadly called it quits. Last night (17th), Jordan Buckley broke the news on Twitter with the following statement:

 

“Andy, Jordan, Steve and Goose‘s last show with Every Time I Die was on Dec 11, 2021. 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 chances. 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 back 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.

See you soon.

Forever grateful,

Andy, Jordan, Steve & Goose“

To add more salt to the wounds, it appears Every Time I Die have since deleted their Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Issues surrounding the group went public last month despite the band making it for their annual ‘Tid’ The Season performance in their hometown, Buffalo, NY. Keith Buckley issued a statement around this time addressing a needed break to prioritize on his mental health:

 

Every Time I Die released one of the best albums of 2021 with Radical, just two months before the public turmoil, in October via Epitaph Records. The record has landed on several year-end lists, also made it to Metal Insider’s combined best 2021 albums list at #2. ETID have also been listed (more than once) on Metal Insider’s Top 225 albums of the decade (2010-2019).
