One of my favorite songs on the new Every Time I Die album Radical is their song, “Planet Shit.” The sense of urgency in the vocals and lyrics along with the hard charging riffs and rhythms makes this one hell of a song. The lyrical content is a commentary on the society we are living in these days as well as the political climate. Keith Buckley truly delivers the goods on this song. His passion is uncanny and the way he directs his anger at certain groups and individuals speaks for so many of us who feel the same way. I can’t wait to see ETID live and sing/scream along to this song! Thank you Keith and ETID for the anthem!
Every Time I Die- Planet Shit:
Planet Shit Lyrics:
Our only hope was in a murdered kid The one god we had went off the gridNo future with a racist past Oh, but we can’t acknowledge that So we burn a cross and pray to a flag (Hey!) We’ll wave it high (Hey!) We’ll wave it high (Hey!) We’ll wave it high Those pigs are fat with “pride”The karma wheel is flat Even the ten commandments cracked There’s no law when the outlaw wears a badge So throw a brick Throw a brick Throw a brick The tool becomes an instrumentWhose fucking side are you on? Whose fucking side are you on? When all the lines that were drawn Are washed away in the blood Whose fucking side are you on?What kind of heaven awaits someone so cruel and afraid? But they gated hell You could be living well in your private hellSo give ’em rope Lets give ’em rope Yeah, give ’em rope Or the guillotine Better yet, the guillotine Oh yeah, the guillotineHonesty’s not a virtue when you’re a lying piece of shit You’re a soulless hypocrite What kind of heaven awaits someone so cruel and afraid? Love is not a virtue when you’re a heartless piece of shit You’re a soulless hypocriteMonsters We stand no chance without your heads You fucking monsters We stand no chance without your heads I want heads What kind of death can you buy that’s any different than mine?So give ’em rope Lets give ’em rope Yeah, give ’em rope Or the guillotine Better yet, the guillotine Oh yeah, the guillotineFuck you, die Fuck you, die Fuck you, die DieYou’re already dead inside You’re already dead inside We’re all trapped on planet shit Our only hope was in a murdered kid The one god we had went off the grid (Hey!) Your suicide (Hey!) Your suicide (Hey!) Your suicide Is our only chance at lifeWhose fucking side are you on? Whose fucking side are you on? When all the lines that were drawn Are washed away in the bloodThe blade that cuts through their spine Has good people on both sides
It’s been a while since I did one of these and this one is pretty damn awesome. Earlier this year, this dream tour came to me when Two Minutes To Late Night started their series where 2 bands cover each other. The first one was Every Time I Die taking on a Cave In song (Youth Overrided from Antenna) and Cave In taking on an Every Time I Die song (Moor from From Parts Unknown). When that was announced it got me thinking that those two bands should tour together. Then I started seeing comments from other bands and Riley Breckenridge from Thrice was super stoked on these covers and that’s when I had the idea. Dream Tour and Set List featuring Thrice, Every Time I Die and Cave In. Imagine the possibilities of these three awesome bands on one bill for a whole tour! So much awesomeness happening with this line up. Now the set lists are where it gets interesting and tricky. And as always I set up some parameters to make it more fun.

Radical is one hell of a way to describe the new Every Time I Die album of the same name. Throughout their career, Every Time I Die have continued to get better and better with each release. Like a fine wine or scotch, the older these guys get, the more ferocious and unrelenting they get. This being the band’s ninth studio album, the absolute urgency felt throughout the album is unparalleled. To top it all off too, there are 16 blistering tracks on this one and the moment it ends, you are compelled to start it over.
Tracks 1-16 are phenomenal. The riffs, beats, bass lines, vocals, lyrics, and melodies are some of the best ETID have come up with. There are moments throughout the album that hark back to previous albums like The Big Dirty and Hot Damn but, there is no denying that these new songs push through what they’ve done in the past. I could go through the album track by track but as I’ve said many times before, that would just ruin it for you, the listener. Instead what I will do is say that there isn’t one track on this album that doesn’t belong or feels out of place. The poetic nature and introspective lyrics of singer Keith Buckley are striking and vulnerable in a different way than on Low Teens. His ability to tell stories and make you think while at the same time rocking out is something that not many people can do. Then you put that together with the crushing riffs of Andy Williams and Jordan Buckley plus the pummeling rhythm section of Steve Micciche and Clayton “Goose” Holyoak and you have the recipe for one of the best bands of the century. Radical also features guest appearances by Josh Scogin from ’68 and Andy Hull from Manchester Orchestra, adding another color to these songs. To top it all off is the stunning production from Will Putney (who also helmed Low Teens).
This album is one that will hold up for years to come. Their ability to expand their sound and take risks only make this album stronger. There is a polarizing sensibility to the record but also a delicate tinge that allows the listener to really soak it all in. You’d think that after over 20 years of being a band and all the miles on the road that they’d slow down but, you’re totally wrong. There is no stopping Every Time I Die and Radical proves that!
The day is getting closer and closer to when the new Every Time I Die album, Radical arrives on October 22. Already a handful of tracks have been released and they are awesome. Now, they’ve dropped yet another banger of a song with “Planet Shit.” Enjoy this one!!!
Today is one of the days I’ve been waiting for all year. The NEW EVERY TIME I DIE album, Radical, will be finally be released on October 22nd via Epitaph Records!!! The band has already released a few songs from the album and today they unleashed the beast that is “Post-Boredom.” This album was once again produced by Will Putney who also did the absolute masterpiece that is Low Teens. Radical is 16 tracks of peak-ETID, and it’s a culmination of everything you love about Every Time I Die. Speaking on the album’s lyrical content, vocalist Keith Buckley said “I’m dealing with difficult matters this time that isn’t only personal for me but are also universal and more communal experiences,” Keith explains. “The songs are realistic in that they acknowledge that things require a lot of work. But it’s ultimately a very hopeful and uplifting record.” I personally, can’t wait for this album to be released. Every Time I Die have been one of my favorite bands for a long time and they only keep getting better with each record.
Recently, the very awesome show Two Minutes To Late Night started doing something quite fun and cool. They call it Splitsville and they have two bands cover each other. The first one was Every Time I Die and Cave In. Cave In chose the ETID song “Moor” from their album From Parts Unknown. Every Time I Die chose “Youth Overrided” from Cave In’s album Antenna. While Cave In did a great job on “Moor,” I have to say that Every Time I Die absolutely killed their cover. Ever since I heard it, I’ve been listening to it like crazy. It’s so damn good. I also have to put this out in the universe, we are in need of a Cave In & Every Time I Die tour in 2022!!!
Every Time I Die have released a new song from their upcoming albums. “AWOL” is now out for all of our listening pleasures. This track is definitely going to be a live staple for years to come. There’s also a bit of an At The Drive- In vibe to the song. This new album, which still doesn’t have a release date yet, is sure shaping up to be one hell of a good one. If you missed out on the other two songs released (“A Colossal Wreck” and “Desperate Pleasures”), you can check those out below as well!
Every Time I Die released not one but two new songs today and both are absolutely killer. For a band that’s been together for over 20 years, they’ve always been able to grow and evolve in such a way that shows maturity and depth on levels that most bands can only dream of. These two songs are just the tip of the iceberg of what’s to come. “A Colossal Wreck” is classic Every Time I Die, while “Desperate Pleasures” is a more experimental turn but, still the same band you love through and through.
The Damned Things Are Back!!! The group featuring Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die, Scott Ian from Anthrax, Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley of Fall Out Boy have returned with their first new music in 9 (yes 9) years!!! Joining them this time around is Dan Andriano the bassist from Alkaline Trio. This first song released, “Cells” is from their upcoming new album, High Crimes, which will be out April 26 (via Nuclear Blast Records). I loved their debut record when it came out and saw them live and it was truly a blast to see. I’m really looking forward to the rest of this album! Check out “Cells” below!!!
