Last week, Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley abruptly left the tour he was on to be with his wife. It turned out that she was pregnant and needed an emergency Cesarean section. Thankfully, he got home in time, the operation went fine and now the world has been graced with Zuzana London Buckley. Tyler Brand from Exalt filled in on vocals for the band for several shows, and for the rest of the tour, which wraps up on December 19th, Jason Butler of letlive, who’s toured with Every Time I Die before, will fill in. Here’s what Buckley said:
I’m indebted to a lot of wonderful people for a lot of beautiful things lately but I need to take a moment to publicly thank Tyler Brand of Exalt and Jason Butler of Letlive for the sacrifices they are making in order to course correct ETID and keep them moving forward in my stead. my view from the outside this week has given me a new appreciation of the compassion inherent in the community where every time I die has proudly built a home- one where the strong are selflessly motivated to compensate for the weak- and I am humbled to a sacred place outside of words. to all those who go to the shows and support every time I die unflinchingly, your part in helping me keep my focus beyond the outermost limits of darkness is as fundamental as Tyler and Jason’s. I am grateful for the things I have, particularly in the times when I have not. I hope to see you soon.
