Cave In And Every Time I Die Hope To Do A Collaborative Tour Someday

In January, Cave In and Every Time I Die covered each other’s songs as part of a new “Two Minutes To Late Night” livestream series called “Splitsville.” At the time, an interview was also conducted with Cave In’s Adam McGrath and Every Time I Die’s Andy Williams, who touched on a number of topics including the possibility of a collaborative tour featuring both bands.

Williams said the following while discussing the “Splitsville” livestream:

“Me and Nate [Newton, Cave In, etc. bassist] were texting after the show, like ‘Yo, after this there has to be an Every Time I Die/Cave In tour, where like we’re all on-stage with two drums and everything and play both songs’, it would just be the best.”

McGrath added:

“That would be the best, it really would. It would be cool, full circle, doing all these things later together, it really would.”

In other news, McGrath also offered an update on the new Cave In album:

“We are writing a record. We did a session with Kurt [Ballou, producer/Converge guitarist], we have five songs recorded right now. We hope to have an hour and a half of music recorded by the spring, we’ve been truckin’ away with that. I see Steve [Brodsky, Cave In, etc. vocalist/guitarist] every two weeks, we do three-day hauls, then he goes back to New York. So we practice like three days in a row and then he goes back.

So we have another session Valentine’s Day weekend for three days and then we have another session scheduled in March, so we’re chipping away at a new record. I feel locked in with Cave In, more than since “Perfect Pitch Black“—that’s how locked in we are right now as far as like doing the band again, 100% locked in and focused, the most we’ve been in years. And it feels really good.”

Every Time I Die Premiere New Songs “A Colossal Wreck” And “Desperate Pleasures”

Every Time I Die have premiered two new songs, “A Colossal Wreck” and “Desperate Pleasures.” Keith Buckley said the following about those:

“[The tracks are] two sides of the same reactionary coin. While ‘A Colossal Wreck’ looks around at the current state of the world and says ‘life is a punishment and only the worst of us thrive,’ ‘Desperate Pleasures’ takes a more optimistic approach and renounces the nihilistic/accelerationist attitude of the voice that came before. It says that without hope, even in the face of such universal anguish, only death is certain and to give up now when those around us need it most is a treacherous act of pure cowardice. That said, I’m not sure which is worse, being a coward or being a cynic. Probably a coward. At least cynics have a sense of humor.”

Every Time I Die Announce “Online Telethon Extravaganza”

Every Time I Die will be hosting a special “Online Telethon Extravaganza” on December 19. Tickets for the virtual event can be found HERE. Steve Micciche commented:

“Alllmost forgot what fun was til we put this together. We play, we laugh, we laugh cause we’re broke. We play a new song. We got celeb’s. We got @BillyGeeee killing it on this Christmas Carol vibe. Have fun with us & put this year behind us. December 19th. https://tidathon.com

Keith Buckley Says Every Time I Die’s New Album Is A Return To “Lighthearted, Jovial Lyrical Content”

During a recent appearance on The Peer Pleasure Podcast, Keith Buckley talked a bit about the new Every Time I Die album. According to him, fans “that got into ETID because of the lighthearted, jovial lyrical content” will “get that back in spades now.”

Buckley said the following:

“…We actually have a new record recorded. We wrote and recorded it, and then two weeks later, the pandemic hit. So, we’re just sitting on it, but we’re not going to do anything with it until we can tour again, because it deserves… You know, I mean everyone’s everyone’s music deserves to be toured on, if they put everything into it that they, you know, hold sacred which is what you try to do when you’re in a recording studio.

So we we don’t want to just like throw it into the into the furnace of online content that gets absorbed and quickly shit out while people are binge watching shows and, you know, trying to find ways to distract themselves from the truth that the you know the world is, you know, pretty much dilapidating around us.

But uh yeah, so were hoping that the band start touring again soon. But I will say that, like, the writing for this album. And I was very, very, very fucking excited about touring on this album, because it’s just such a different album as far as like the attitude of it. I was very excited to realize that I kind of got back to the playfulness of old ETID, you know. So I do feel like this is this is on par.

I mean I honestly, I honestly honestly feel like this is the best record and after we did ‘Low Teens‘, I was like, ‘okay, there’s no chance I’m ever going to write like this again’ and I feel like ‘Low Teens‘ was the first time anyone really took me seriously as a writer, because there was no, you know, no like cheap humor in it, you know none of those like devices that I use, because they were fun.

It was just very serious and I found a way to to appropriately translate what I was thinking and going through. And a lot of people recognized that. And it was, as far as what I saw about like reviews and things it was, you know, this is his…. these are his best lyrics.

So I knew that I was never going to top that and I was like if I know I’m not going to do that, then why why would I even do another record? Like I just I can’t imagine having an experience that’s going to inspire lyrics that could be more of what that is, you know? And I don’t I don’t think I want to. So I don’t know if there’s a point to doing it.

So I kind of argued, you know with myself, about that as an internal conflict, but I was like okay fuck it. I’m in a band, bands make make records, well let’s fucking make a record. So I did and, you know, sat down to start writing and found out that I was having fun with it again, music was fun to me again.

So, I think that anybody that got into ETID because of the lighthearted, jovial lyrical content or anything that miss that from ‘Low Teens‘, get that back in spades now.

I think it’s just so much better than any of our other records and it feels like a new band again. Which is wild, because the last record was about a birth and, you know, it was very much a rebirth of us too and this is our first. This is our first offering after that rebirth, so it feels like a brand new band to me. I’m really excited to get back out there.”
