Kurt Ballou had always intimidated the living shit out of me, so I was overjoyed when the decision was made to record our next record with him at GodCity and I mean that sincerely. I’ve been a fan of his work for over a decade. His records are terrifying and moving and they sound like they were written and recorded under great duress, which is exactly how this style of music should be made. This month we join the pantheon. I couldn’t be more excited to see what he helps us learn about our own band that we didn’t realize for the past 15 years.

The new material will follow their 2013 Epitaph Records full length, The Blackest Beautiful.

Every Time I Die - New Junk Aesthetic

2009 has seen Epitaph acquiring some pretty big established names.  First they welcomed veteran pop-punkers New Found Glory; then they extended an offering to former screamo group Thursday, followed by hardcore favourites Converge, and now most recently New York hardcore staple, Every Time I Die.  Every Time I Die have been pumping out their unique brand of hardcore since 1998, and amassed quite a following over the past decade.  They’re latest album, New Junk Aesthetic, serves as my introduction to the group, and after listening to their unique take on hardcore I can see what all the fuss is about.

Firstly, there’s no question that vocalist Keith Buckley has nailed the art of screaming.  Buckley screams in a style that preserves lyrical clarity without sacrificing hardcore’s ragged intensity.  Although not a chronologically accurate comparison, Buckley’s cries are quite comparable to those found in recently reviewed UK hardcore act Confide.  But Buckley isn’t a one trick pony.  For example, on tracks like “Wanderlust” and “Host Disorder” he pulls out some southern swagger.  The change is abrupt but natural, and plays a big part in giving It Dies Today an edge over their peers.

Furthermore, New Junk Aesthetic carries on Every Time I Die’s knack for creating unpredictable yet oddly appealing song structures and lyrics centered on vivid imagery.  Tracks like “White Smoke” may start with seemingly standard riff heavy breakdowns, but then the unconventional chord choices reveal themselves, as well as some dominant bass work and, pardon the comparison, surprisingly mellow System Of A Down-like moments.  The occasional use of clean-backing vocals on tracks like “Turtles All The Way Down” further helps tame the madness without watering down their sound.

Lyrically, tracks like the aforementioned “Wanderlust” demonstrate a keen understanding of lyrical purpose.  A tale of guilt and self-examination, the track doesn’t degrade into visceral imagery right off the bat, but takes almost the entire track to escalate from phrases like “lord only knows/I’m tied but won’t rest my head until I’m home/and if my hands find another body, well you can’t blame them for trying to keep warm,” to the deep anger and blunt imagery a couple minutes later: “And when they take my head and put it on a stake/I’ll know that guilt and disgrace keep the dead men awake.”  The band’s keen sense of development makes lyrics like these just as engaging as the music itself.

And before I end, a quick note about the artwork.  It’s fantastic. Each song contains an accompanying full-page illustration.  The images all communicate a very over exaggerated and abstract, “fleshy” style.  They’re morbid without being violent, and fascinatingly detailed.  The artwork alone more than justifies picking up the jewel case over the digital product.

New Junk Aesthetic is a great package physically, instrumentally, and lyrically.  If hardcore is your thing, then don’t let this one pass you by.

Everyone seems to be pretty much in agreement that Every Time I Die is the best thing going for metalcore.  And it’s true, against the tides of Rise Records imitators like Attack! Attack! or Of Mice & Men, no one holds a candle to the aggression, chaos, and passion commanded by front man Keith Buckley and his crew.  I jumped into the mix around the release of New Junk Aesthetic and I’ve never looked back.  The same applies to their sixth full length and second Epitaph release, Ex Lives, which finds the band taking more chances than ever with their biggest payoff to date.

The album gnashes its teeth and kicks up dirt from the get go with the malicious thrasher of an opener “Under Water Bimbos From Outer Space.”  The discordant riffs of Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams shred out steady skull splitters with Keith’s buzz saw vocals gnashing between volumous crunchy breakdowns and spastic mental breaks as per the seamless follow-up of “Holy Book of Dilemma.”  His vocal anguish remains second to none, with his expertly audible vocals coating lyrics like “there was whisky in the devil’s blood, and there was blood in my cup” as powerful in message as they are in meaning.

Of course there are plenty of other aspects unique to Every Time I Die that fans have come to expect.  Like the hint of Deep South fortitude with the hard rock swagger of the chorus line on “I Suck [Blood],” root’n toot’n power-banjo intro to “Partying Is Such Sweet Sorrow,” and experimental grandeur of “Indian Giver.”  The occasional clean segments, namely “Revival Mode,” pace the eleven tracks without ever sounding out of place or dilute.  The lyrics also offer plenty of thought provoking complexities worth discovering on their own, all tying back to the album’s overarching regretful themes.

It has been a while since I’ve checked in with Every Time I Die, and it has been an equally lengthy time since I’ve really received enjoyment from anything associated with metalcore.  And while I remain an outsider to the world of metalcore, at this point I consider myself at least a casual fan of Every Tie I Die, and can’t think a negative thought against the group.  Always approachable but forever on edge, Ex Lives ups the expectation once again for the Buffalo, NY quartet, marking their most well-envisioned masterpiece to date – and that’s saying something.

New Video: NPR.ORG Exclusive Premiere of Defeater’s Video for "Empty Glass"

Watch Defeater’s Video for “Empty Glass” at NPR.ORG

Set in a low-lit bar, this video premiere for “Empty Glass” from Empty Days and Sleepless Nights, shot by director Rob Soucy, captures the darker side of a seemingly victorious country still dealing with a lot of hurt. In beautifully-cast shadows, “Empty Glass” cuts from poker players and inconsolable drunks to a skeezy man looking for a one-night stand. Like the brooding song waiting to release, the impressionistic narrative coalesces into a bar-wide fight at the emotional climax in the video.

“Along with the conceptual work of our records, we wanted to make a music video that told a story within itself. The “Empty Glass” video shows the sometimes seedy underbelly of our story’s bar that the listener finds in the record instead of just seeing the bare-bones love story the song weaves. With our friend and director Rob Soucy, we wanted to take the viewer and fan to a different place than just the record” explains Defeater vocalist Derek Archambault.

Empty Days & Sleepless Nights is out now on Bridge 9 Records

Every Time I Die Viral Marketing Campaign On Twitter

Every Time I DieEvery Time I Die has been promoting their upcoming DVD, Shit Happens: The Series?, by retweeting fake tweets by a good many hollywood celebrities (Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Hillary Duff, Andy Dick, etc.) over on Twitter.  They don’t seem to be terribly amused, but it has made for some serious press and solid humour that money just can’t buy.

The DVD is set for an October 26, 2010 release via Epitaph Records.

Update [October 13th 3:30]: It appears that Every Time I Die were recently issued a cease and desist order, forcing them to stop creating fake tweets from various celebrities. While no official word on who it was that is behind the legal problems, piecing together information that Every Time I Die have posted on their Twitter account, it appears that Kanye West may be behind the band’s legal problems. This is, of course, simply a matter of piecing together clues and is not official by any means.
