Are we getting a new Every Time I Die record in July?
A couple of months ago, Buffalo natives Every Time I Die revealed that they were entering the studio to record the follow-up to 2012′s Ex Lives. More specifically, they went to Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou’s Godcity Studio, which in itself is quite exciting, as his work is often a benchmark of quality. Combine the two, and you’ve got yourself some fun.
At the very end of last week, the unofficial word came regarding a few important details for the resultant record, including a name, artwork, and release date.
Whilst nothing has been confirmed by the band or label, if reports are to be believed then the album – the band’s seventh overall – will be called From Parts Unknown, and will feature something of a departure in terms of artwork, which is normally a bit more ‘punk’ – but this is quite trippy.
The date of release is apparently July 1st, which is tantalisingly close, and will come via the excellent Epitaph Records.
The band have a busy summer ahead of them, with their almost customary spot on Warped Tour, which begins next month and runs until late July. They’re also scheduled to play Reading/Leeds Festival in the UK in August along with the likes of Architects, Queens Of The Stone Age and Monolith favourites Baby Godzilla, which are shining lights on an otherwise dodgy cocktail of shit. With a new album to promote, however, chances are they’ll be booking a lot more shows before the end of the year.
UPDATE: about two hours after posting this, a new track hit the internet. Titled “Thirst“, it’s very reminiscent of Ex Lives‘ second track “Holy Book Of Dilemma“; it’s immediately frenzied and very short. Check it out:
