Buffalo, New York-based hardcore/metal outfit Every Time I Die are back into the studio to record the follow-up to 2012’s Ex-Lives, and they’ll do so in style.
As the band posted on its official Facebook page Monday morning, the new album will be produced by Kurt Ballou of the band Converge:
New York hardcore group Every Time I Die is currently recording new material at GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts with producer Kurt Ballou of Converge.
Keith Buckley, lyricist and vocalist, of Every Time I Die states:
“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.”
Immediately following the recording process, Every Time I Die hits the road for the entirety of Warped Tour 2014. Stay tuned for further album details.
Ex-Lives, released two years ago on Epitaph Records, was a dark, intense listen, as shown by the opening track Underwater Bimbos from Outer Space:
Buckley’s comments in the quote above indicate that this new material should really be something special. Stay tuned…
