Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley issues lengthy statement: 'this is my truth'
The acrimonious saga that is the implosion of Every Time I Die continues to play out on social media as frontman Keith Buckley has now issued an extensive statement detailing what he refers to as "my truth."
According to Buckley, despite assertions to the contrary, there were no attempts from his bandmates to contact or converse with him between the band's December 3rd statement — the one announcing Buckley's exit from tour for 'mental health' reasons — and Buckley's receipt of "a legal document stating that I was no longer a member of Every Time I Die, but the other four members were."
Buckley goes on to state that "the pandemic changed me," but his ensuing attempts to forge a more healthful relationship with his bandmates was not warmly received. "My mental health was thrown into question when it suited them," says Buckley. "Or instead, it was used as a weapon against me when my boundaries offended the consciences of those repeatedly trying to cross them."
He also reveals that the band's demise "was inevitable," stating, "Our problems with each other go back decades. We should have broken up in 2014 to be honest. But we didn't, for our own reasons."
Keith Buckley's entire statement can be read via Instagram below.
For their part, the other members of Every Time I Die appear to be considering the formation of a new band with a new vocalist.

What makes you think everything in this world that you have can't be taken away? In a world this day its kill or be killed, I live each day like it might be my last.
"Firm spiritual and political stance"? The neo-liberal metalcore yogi has spoken.
Sunny singh here, I am on my way to buffalo to film a new bathtub video. sign up on my patreon for the underwater ballcam
This is gonna get worse before it gets better. Also Trump lost
Pretty telling that the other guys in the band have lots of peers/other band members offering words and encouragement on their posts. Haven't seen any on the Buckster's yet. There must be more to the story we don't know. But I would be annoyed too if my vocalist went full SJWtard and injected it into my band's music
Scott Ian gave Keith some love on instagram. He really wants that Damned Things reunion
Marty from Zao here. Sucks when the bassist gets to stay in the band but the singer - the face of the whole machine - gets kicked out. Lol.
this band finally broke up and now they won't go away. i wish they would get back together so i didn't have to hear about them anymore
once you go wokebrain you never go back. good riddance l1btard
anonymous 6 minutes ago Dino Cazares here, I was up at 3 am jerking off to lynn pleasant on pornhub and was interrupted by the twitter alert of this bullshit. ruined a perfectly good anal Hahahah. All I can picture is cheeseburgers.
brandan schieppati here, if you want The Truth you should listen to my critically acclaimed Trustkill records smash hit album. All proceeds benefit Rise Above fitness
Oh you know I'm no good You know I'm no good at court ordered goodbyes
chewed off my very own head to get me out of this trap
"What makes you think everything in this world that you have can't be taken away? In a world this day its kill or be killed, I live each day like it might be my last." Yep, old Hatebreed rules. Keith was broken by politics. It's evident in their newest album where half of the lyrics contradict the other half. It's got to be tough trying to be liberal when your political party is a pawn of huge corporations and went from "live and let live" to you're canceled if you don't believe exactly what the party tells you, no questions asked. I'm being serious too, I can't stand repbulicans and politics in general but at least dems used to pretend to believe in individual thought and expression. Now, I'm only worried about voting for who won't lock me in my house and will just let me live my life. Crazy world these days.
I dunno man. I think I'm team Keith. Sounds like some shit went awry behind his back. I know he got sober and probably went on a Jesus rant, but I dunno. It's like half baked when Scarface asks the guy on the couch if he killed killer and he says "I believe him yo, I don't know why, but I do".
Keith Buckley workin' the deli counter @ the UB Wegman's - someone make it happen. Heahz ya baloney pal! Fresh as monkey's breath brotha! What movie are those two lines from?
Y'all are a bunch of dink-riders posting hatebreed lyrics, crying about politics, imagining Sunny's balls and Dino jerkin it... there's no understanding it. It's a mystery. Get bent over and plowed.
Lol at these idiots complaining about "Wokeism" and SJW's when metal and hardcore has always been political.
Perfect love perfect truth? My blessed life? And this booze bag claims to be a writer. Wording of a shallow lost person. Booze kills brain cells, why i laugh?
oh man my lyrics are so deep. let's use RAD in the title and make it look like a trapper keeper and then get upset that people don't take our mental breakdowns seriously
Libtard throws a tantrum and his band abandons his insufferable a$$. More at 11.
This will never happen to btbam because they are not a bunch of sleaze bucket ape men partying in a van. Youre from buffalo. Go drink yourself to death
Every hardcore partyboys favorite hero shows the natural end to that lifestyle. Clinging to a fat chick. Shpuld have put down the bukowski and learned a skill keithy baby. Karmas a bitch partyboy
Aaron 'Big C*ck" Bedard here from influential positive hardcore band Bane. There seems to be some mix up, again this is our final European tour, so last chance to dance kids before we return next year with our reunion tour package.

the most devastating aspect of all of this is the lack of income for the alimony payments to fund qanon
"Whatever is going on with the guys from now on is between them and their God" This guy STOPPED doing drugs??
This is Brent Hinds from Mastodon, who here says that I sound like Snagglepuss when I sing? Lots of people sing nasally, not just me.
Keith the wokester Buckley! Flush him down the toilet!
Easyhateoven here, one of these funny comments has to be Spaceghost, i hate him.
I mean I'm all for Keith being happy and finding his truth or whatever the hell he's rambling on about here, and I'm all for ETID thinking that they can just keep making music with someone else - more power to all of these people. They're all going to find out that no one really cares about either group that much.
Jon Parkin here, the old singer of Gaza, do you care where you go when you die?

They're all going to find out that no one really cares about either group that much. ___ I mean seriously - they're each going to make a few albums with whatever their "next" stuff is, and you know the "next" stuff will just be more dumb fast atonal riffs from Jordan and big dumb slow riffs from Andy with whatever "big scene name" they can get to do vocals. And Keith's stuff will be that morose, brooding Radiohead-lite stuff that it catnip to him. Everyone knows that in 4 or 5 years they're going to get back together (probably with Ratboy) and do the whole "We're bringin' it back to basics with the people who made the thing in the first place. The city of Buffalo needs us blah blah blah" vibe. ZZZZZZZZZZZ
Chris Barnes here, from the Cannibal Corpse fame, Keith could always start a shittier band and get really big ear gauges.
This is right in line with a band from a city where people are still slitting their wrists over "wide right"
Thanks Keith, but I am not reading a novel about why a shit band broke up. Stop being a chode.
Joe Hardcore here, all of this division is really hurting the scene. I am really worried this is going to hurt the 2022 installment of This is Hardcore. Tickets onsale this friday. come early for a preshow at kung fu necktie with jesus piece and 100 demons
Shelf life of a hardcore band has typically been 5-7 years with 2 of those years being spent establishing themselves. ETID peaked around 2005.
Seth Putnam here, I sent a thank you card to Keith Buckley for destroying this band.
🤡 is talking way more than the others and scrambling. say less. other dude in band has always been sober and doesn't seem to have a problem with the rest ever.
Keith at least you can get four free rapid Covid-19 test through the federal government
Louis CK here, has anyone scene my private hotel show?
Why did they want to continue without you though? Why were 4 guys on one side and you on the other? What did you do to make this happen, Keith
this band was so dumb for so long (good thing) and at one point they tried to make it serious (bad thing) nobody wanted deep philosophical SJW ramblings. it was dead after hot damn
god damn this is so embarrassing. each time he posts something he makes himself look even worse. More!!!
Dude has been singing about how terrible of a person he is for the last four albums at least. I never thought he was exaggerating. These things will happen.
I always loved ETID but Keith was always a stuck-up douche bag. All the shows I met him at he was a prick
lol The Locust. Good musicians but annoying ass band and members
This is right in line with a band from a city where people are still slitting their wrists over "wide right" ^^^ You don't know what are pain feels like. That being said…this is our year baby!!! Go Bills!!!!
1. Justin would never post here. 2. This band has been writing the same heavy blues rock record for 15 years. If you want a new ETID album then put an older one down for 6 months then come back to it. If that doesn't work make a mix on Spotify of the last 5 albums.
I dont care if you got a Morrisey tattoo, you are just mad that I know about it.
With the way Keith is behaving/talking, he was over ETID and just couldn't find a way to be a normal human being and get out of it without causing a huge scene and making it all about himself. This is some true narcissism sh*t.
There is NO SUCH THING as my truth. There is "The Truth" and then everything else. The truth isn't what you want it to be. The truth is that which is! Cut this woke BS
how much money did this band make if they had two tour buses? Buckley had his own?
Brandan Schieppati here, i told you all before the only real The Truth is our groundbreaking Rob Caggiano produced piece of shit released on Trustkill records. buy it. all proceeds go to rise above fitness
Alexis Marshall here, formerly of Daughters, I used to sing like a pterodactyl, then I sang like a shitty Elvis, but I have always had a frick-eye.
Seth Putnam here, I sent a thank you card to Keith Buckley for destroying this band.<-------------------->Bullshit homie,you're dead. you couldnt even afford a stamp, if you were still alive.
I love seeing all of the f*ckin' clown "conservatives" on Lambgoat circlejerk. I sit here, making insane money in a liberal city, while you f*cking clowns haul sheetrock and think you're owning the libs with woke puns. I could literally buy you, pussies.
"Firm political stance" is so sad. His politics are as empty and meaningless as any dipshit conservative or Hamilton-loving lib. Cringey as f*ck. He doesn't do anything!! He just f*cking streams and charges a ton of money for access to his shit. What a f*cking asshole. So spiritual, such conviction in his political opinions wow Keith! He'll be releasing an autobiography within the next two years and I'm sure it'll be dogshit manic ramblings.

Isn't the guitar player married to a weirdo Q anon supporter?
I cant believe the guitar player was a professional wrestler, no wonder Keith had to take a break.
There is a lot of differing opinions here, but can we all agree that people who say "full stop" in any context ever should probably be murdered?
^ Tim Lambesis here, from the As I Lay Dying fame, I agree with you.
Welcome to Mighty Taco, this is Keith can I take your order
What a complete tool, your band always sucked and now you can go work at Arby's full-time. See ya…
For the past week or two, the comment section on this website has been banging. Lots of classic content.
Kat Katz formerly from Agoraphobic Nosebleed, even though I identify as a "they" now, I would let Keith and his handsome face call me a she any day.
" I love seeing all of the f*ckin' clown "conservatives" on Lambgoat circlejerk.

LOL possibly funniest post in goat history! Final line is amazing!!!
Serj Tomk SoD fme here, why don't you ask the kids at Tiananmen Square if Keith was the reason why they were there?
Get that Damned Things going again. Scott Eaton and Joe Throatman are waiting at the dial.
Scott 'Moneybags' Vogel here, I'm back in Buffalo and ready to lay down some vocals for these guys. Need the money up front, thanks in advance.
the last time I was this sad about a band breaking up is when that dude who sang the Humpty Hump died.
Hey Keith, Cory Brandan here, "blah blah blah". Sucker. See you on the tour circuit. Oh wait, nevermind.
I am pretty sure I am the only black person that frequents these boards and I gotta say, you honkies are cracking me up.
Can't wait for the autobiography full of run-on sentences where he blames everyone and everything but himself for this lmao
What's the over/under in years before Keith comes out and says that whoever this person is who is the center of his life now was actually a toxic person and causing all of his problems?
I really hope the morons in this band are shitfaced and trashed reading the comments here late at night by themselves. Waiting for the next new post to be 'Touring Drummer of ETID for 2 weeks in 2012, Dead of Suicide'
"Start over, this time no gods unless they're women" This dipshit actually had a lyric like this on their latest record. Waiting for the next Keith post here to be that he now identifies as gender pronoun X, Y, Z and now sits down when he pees
Bedard from Bane here, not sure why lambgoat deleted my earlier comment.
Keith erroneously capitalizes words like "Truth" just like Trump. Sorry you had to leave your Band, bro, but it's what's best for our Country.
Keith here… just want to thank you all for getting involved here. I was the one who had the War on Women comments blocked. You heard the new album, I call the shots for the incels admins of Lambgoat. They come to me the SJW god of metalcore.
Keith's new MGR here, he will singing a cappella at a Baptist church near you under 'EVERY TIME I'. We are in the process of modify the I logo to resemble a cross with Keith hanging from it like Christ. No hate he has Jesus in his heart. We will only be playing in cities of all black lives.
I am pretty sure I am the only black person that frequents these boards and I gotta say, you honkies are cracking me up. ^ Hi Russ!
both him and his brother were always pretentious douche bags whenever i met them, which seems to be echoed. think they are way more important than they really are. not quite as underground and good as starkweather, deadguy, colasce, integrity, etc or whoever else they worship for cred. and then lapped by tons of other early to mid 00s metalcore bands since. should of deaded it after burial plot
Deranged lefty nitwit clown. Of all the people that goofyball Andy Williams could bodyslam he never bodyslammed Keith.
There is no "my truth," there's only THE truth. He has way too much soy in his diet.
anyone who uses the phrase "my truth" is delusional. There is no such thing. You can have your SIDE of the story, or your OPINION about certain things, but there are always facts and the facts are what spell out the absolute truth.
anonymous 10 hours ago Deranged lefty nitwit clown. Of all the people that goofyball Andy Williams could bodyslam he never bodyslammed Keith. This. Coulda done everyone a favor and slammed the commie right out of him.

You can have your SIDE of the story, or your OPINION about certain things, but there are always facts and the facts are what spell out the absolute truth. U can't explain this to a lefty, as they've created an entire world and existence that centres around their emotional state; using fantasy and imagination to try and come to terms with reality.

Dude my job is hiring put me down as a reference and I'll get an extra 300 bucks. The pay starts at 18.50 with benefits! Don't worth Keithy everyone I work with is insufferable, you'll fit right in.
the bass players rant got more views. this is a good sign for the inevitable Audioslave style supergroup featuring the one and only Hardcore Superstar Danny Diablo aka Lord Ezec aka Queens #1 Puero Rican Jew
Bout time Buckley bucks up and starts a bible book-reading OnlyFans to compensate for lost wages
