Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley Says The Band Are Being Sued By A Fan Over An Amputated Toe

During a recent interview with Kerrang!, Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley revealed that the band are being sued by a fan, who claims they had to have a toe amputated after getting injured by a monitor that was allegedly kicked over at one of their shows. According to the frontman, the group are “currently in court disputing this.”

Buckley said the following:

“One of the craziest stories I know of right now is that there’s a girl who says that we kicked a monitor over on her foot and that it broke her toe, and that she had to get her toe amputated. We’re currently in court disputing this.”

He continued:

“…One, it never fucking happened. Two, how long are you responsible for a hurt toe? Like, even if the thing fell on her toe—which it absolutely didn’t—and she hurt her toe, but she didn’t clean it, she didn’t take care of it, she didn’t set it, and then it had to get amputated, like how long are we babysitting this fucking toe? I’m so pissed off when I think about that. That’s what’s currently on the top of my list.”

He also added the following when asked which toe it was:

“I think it’s a big toe. They tried to show us pictures, and I’m like, ‘I’m not fucking looking at these pictures.’ It didn’t happen. It’s not my responsibility. I’m not responsible for that fucking toe. It’d be like if I broke my arm when I was in fucking seventh grade playing baseball. If my arm hurts, I’m not going to fucking call my coach and be like, ‘Dude, come on, man. Help me out here.’ He’s not responsible for that anymore.”

In other news, Buckley also offered an update on the band’s new album, which is still in early stages:

“There’s just been riffs going around. This is a strange time in Every Time I Die’s history, because we used to be like a very greased-gear sort of band where the record cycle would be done and we’d get back in the studio. Andy’s been doing wrestling, and he’s going off on this second phase in his life.

It’s really inspiring to watch. Dude’s 40 years old and been in a hardcore band for 20 years, and all of the sudden he finds this new life as a wrestler. Nobody wants to stop him from doing it. We’re like, ‘Dude, just do what you have to fucking do because this is really fucking cool.’”

He continued when asked if things will be similar to the three-year gap between “New Junk Aesthetic” and “Ex Lives“:

“Yes, I do think it’ll be exactly like that. Like, we’re not being lazy at all. We’re still touring. It’s just so many people are into so many different new things. Jordan and I are new dads.

We have these new inspirations in our lives, and I think that this band owes it to its members to sort of let them absorb this phase change and see what happens and see what music comes out of that. You can’t rush something like that.”
