Ryan "Legs" Leger, former drummer for the Burlington, Ontario, Canada metalcore band DEAD AND DIVINE, has been tapped by Buffalo bruisers EVERY TIME I DIE for their upcoming tour, which is scheduled to kick off on September 8 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Leger made his live debut with EVERY TIME I DIE on Saturday, August 22 in Saginaw, Michigan According to the band, "'Legs' absolutely killed it."
Video footage of Leger playing along to the EVERY TIME I DIE songs "The Marvelous Slut" and "Ebolarama" can be viewed below.
EVERY TIME I DIE filmed a video for the track "Wanderlust" last month with director Chris Sims (PAPA ROACH, LAMB OF GOD, POISON THE WELL). The song comes off the band's new album, "New Junk Aesthetic", which is scheduled for release on September 15 via Epitaph Records.
"'New Junk Aesthetic' is not the next logical step in the progression of EVERY TIME I DIE," explained frontman Keith 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."
