To all our Aussie fans, It may come as no surprise to you that the Viva The Underdogs Australian Revolution Tour will need to be postponed. Given the current situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) and the various restrictions state and federal governments have put in place, it is literally impossible for the tour to go ahead in June 2020. We have rescheduled the shows for July 2021 and are stoked that both Hatebreed and Every Time I Die will still be joining us then. Thank you for your patience in these testing times and we promise it will be worth the wait when this tour gets back up and running next year. Stay safe, Winston, Luke, Jeff, Ben and Jia
Every Time I Die have posted another teaser for one of the songs off their upcoming album. You can check that out below:
During an interview with Alternative Press, Keith Buckley opened up about the lyrical inspiration for the new Every Time I Die album. According to him, the effort is inspired by the Trump administration and “universal uncertainty.”
Buckley said the following when asked what inspired the lyrics on the new record:
“The Trump administration coming into power. And I know some people prefer to keep politics out of music, but in one way or another, politics inform everything we value. It’s not a cat you can put outside for the day.
Its arms reach into art, music, literature, our careers, our neighborhoods, our family structures, our access to essential goods and services, everything.
But OK, let’s pretend it is possible to set aside the political implications of the current Trump administration. Take away all policy-making ability and media coverage. What you have now is a demographic of human Americans forging an identity from the absolute worst and most dangerous resources they possess because they saw one evil man’s rise as validation of the idea that “evil” can take what “good” cannot earn.
To people rightfully tired of being shit on by those in charge—bosses, wives, husbands, “the coastal elite,” whatever—the idea of a sudden and newly “acceptable” power grab seemed too good to be true.
So they built an identity around their darkest parts, the ones they’ve had to repress as part of our social contract but no longer need to. I imagine it felt like taking your bra off after a long day of work.
With this now in play, the game is on as to who can be the worst in the shortest amount of time, which is why the internet blossomed like a corpse plant. Innumerable grifters raced to the bottom by pandering to hate, jealousy, bitterness, fear and confusion through self-destructive contrarianism.
Intentionally duplicitous bullies operating in abject bad faith who use not instinct or courage to guide them through their lonely, miserable lives but the outrage they revel in when they conflate “bravery” with “shamelessness” and “the righteous anger of the marginalized” with “arbitrary violence” because they delight in pain and cruelty and cannot even comprehend how empathy functions.
You don’t need to hang out in political circles or listen to political podcasts to know that supporting the Trump administration is a question of human decency, of morality. Seeing how such brazen stupidity and heartlessness affects people who just want to follow their own bliss and love whoever they want to love and provide a better life for their families, it disgusts and angers me.
But I’m not so blinded by that anger that I can’t recognize a symptom of helplessness when I see it. This spoiled, delusional preteen of a country has failed the people it was supposed to protect and made us feel so worthless that there are actually those of us who don’t believe that we deserve things like Medicare For All. And even if they do, it’s not enough to have. Others must have not.
The short version: I didn’t think I’d ever be able to write better or more charged lyrics than what I wrote for Low Teens, but that record was about personal uncertainty. This one is about universal uncertainty.”

Days 35, 36 and 37. You know how in movies about musicians from the 50s, the whole band has to crowd around 1 microphone in the studio and they all have to play everything perfectly from beginning to end? That’s what watching @MitchBHavin record is like. But with shittier snacks. #TheirBonesAreTheirMoney
