Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley Exits Tour Early To Focus On His Mental Health, ’68 Drop Off Remaining Shows Due To Positive COVID-19 Test

There has been some new developments regarding Every Time I Die, ’68, and Candy’s current tour. Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley has exited the trek to focus on his mental health, while ’68 have dropped off the remaining shows due to a positive COVID-19 case.

Buckley commented:

“Caring for my own mental health has taken priority over EVERYTHING else in my life. the Love it has brought to everything I do has been clear to everyone that has seen me and I value my progress way too much to allow a setback. I am taking a hiatus from ETID to prepare for TTS”

The group added:

“Mental Health is a real issue and when not treated has an impact on so many people. Keith needs to take this time to rest and prepare for the holiday shows and we wish him a quick recovery. We also understand that so many of you have been looking forward to these last few shows on our tour. We don’t want to let you down so we’ll be playing these last three shows without a vocalist.

Like Keith always says ’this mic is your mic’. So come and help us finish up this tour. Anyone that no longer wants to attend will be given refunds at point of purchase.”

’68 also issued a statement:

“Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control we will not be at the next 3 shows on this wonderful @everytimeidie tour. Apparently, the COVID finally caught up to us… we both feel fine enough but for obvious reasons we must do the right thing. So…..we love you all. And will see you very soon. 🤘😷

12/03/21 – Huntington, WV @ The Loud
12/04/21 – Richmond, VA @ The Broadberry
12/05/21 – Virginia Beach, VA @ Elevation 27”

’68 Premiere Animated Video For New Song “Bad Bite”

’68 have premiered an animated video for their new song “Bad Bite.” This track is from the band’s new album “Give One Take One,” which will be released on March 26.

The following was said about the clip:

“This music video was created over the entirety of 2020, and a little bit into 2021. Enjoy”

Josh Scogin added:

“The ‘subliminal’ messages are actually what became kind of like a journal for me. A bit of a ‘dear diary’ during the 2020 year of lemons. My computer is old and slow so I had to work on this video in small little, 3 second chunks each so, there was one moment that I assumed it would never actually be released to the public, but I had to finish it because I made a promise to myself a few years back that if I start something, I have to finish it.

So anyway, I just started writing whatever I felt at the time (I think at one point I have some Star Wars references because I was making my way through each of those movies), and I also started writing the date on it somewhere each time I worked on it. Once I was basically done with the animation, I put it all together for the first time and bounced it down (it took an entire 24 hours to render it down) and I was so stoked. I knew I wanted it raw, and I wanted my “mistakes” to shine through (to rebuttal how perfect, pristine, and fake everything seems to be these days.). I wanted it to be HUMAN but before I actually placed it all together, I just thought it wasn’t going to actually work. Once I was able to see it all it blew me away. I love it.”

’68 Premiere “The Knife, The Knife, The Knife” Music Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Give One Take One”

“Give One Take One” Track Listing:

01. “The Knife, The Knife, The Knife”
02. “Bad Bite”
03. “Nickels And Diamonds”

Josh Scogin said the following about the new record:

“Of all the music I’ve created over the years, this album holds some of my very favorite moments, lyrically, musically, and even mentally; I travel down several roads that are equal parts therapeutic to get off my chest and terrifying to share with the world. I believe you can feel the tangible joy that music gives each of us in this album; Nick captured the explosive and implosive nature that keeps ’68 moving forward.

You can hear the passion and the sincerity that Nick, Nikko, and I have for the art of creating sounds. I’m so proud of this album and humbled by the journey that it took to get here. And if I’m honest, the vast majority of my thoughts are circled around the hope that we will be able to perform these songs live one day soon.”
