Jennifer of Swigged! conducted an interview with vocalist Keith Buckley of Buffalo, New York's EVERY TIME I DIE before the band hit the stage in Atlanta, Georgia on September 29 as part of the Epitaph Tour 2009. Watch the five-minute chat below.
"New Junk Aesthetic", the new album from EVERY TIME I DIE, sold around 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 46 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"New Junk Aesthetic" was released on September 15 via Epitaph Records.
"'New Junk Aesthetic' is not the next logical step in the progression of EVERY TIME I DIE," explained Buckley. "It is an evolutionary leap. It's as if we have morphed from a single-celled bacteria straight to the guy with the dirt bike that will let you watch his older sister suntan if you steal him a smoke from your parents. Certainly you may acknowledge similarities, but on a grand scale, they stand light years apart."
"Wanderlust", the new video from EVERY TIME I DIE, was helmed by visionary director Chris Sims (STAIND, NORMA JEAN, LAMB OF GOD) and is described in a press release as "a mind trip set in a dimly lit hotel, where Buckley walks along an eerie corridor, opening doorways only to discover the band's grotesque album artwork, drawn by guitarist Jordan Buckley, has it come to life."
As previously reported, EVERY TIME I DIE has tapped former DEAD AND DIVINE drummer for the band's current tour, which kicked off on September 8 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Leger made his live debut with EVERY TIME I DIE on August 22 in Saginaw, Michigan.
