Every Time I Die is an American metalcore band from Buffalo, New Yorkmarker, formed in 1998. Their musical style is a combination of metalcore and punk rock . The band announced on July 14, 2008 that they have left Ferret Music and have recently signed with Epitaph. Their fifth album, New Junk Aesthetic, was released on September 15, 2009.


The band was established by brothers Keith and Jordan Buckley, whose father, Michael Buckley, lectures Computer Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo. They added to the initial lineup with guitarist Andy Williams, bassist John McCarthy, and drummer Michael "Ratboy" Novak. In their first short tour covering the Buffalo, New Yorkmarker and Toronto, Canadamarker vicinities, the band met Goodfellow Records producer Chris Logan, who released the band's debut EP Burial Plot Bidding War in 2000. The following year, Aaron Ratajczak replaced McCarthy as bassist before the band released its debut full-length album Last Night In Town that year under Ferret Records, leading to a tour for that album in collaboration with Killswitch Engage the following year.

In 2003, Steven Micciche replaced Ratajczak as bassist for the band's second full-length Hot Damn! and the band's subsequent American tour supporting Jackass star Steve-O. However, Micciche resigned from his position in 2005, being replaced by Kevin Falk of Between the Buried and Me fame. However, three months after recording sessions for the band's third album Gutter Phenomenon, he was replaced by Chris Byrnes of NORA, who left the band after touring with them at the Warped Tour 2006.Their sixth bassist, Keller Harbin of The Chariot, replaced Byrnes and played with the band for its tour with Atreyu on the World Championship Tour along with From First to Last and Chiodos. The band was featured on the 2007 Sounds Of The Underground tour. Former Shiner guitarist and From Autumn To Ashes bassist, Josh Newton, was inducted in September 2007 as the band's seventh bassist for a tour with Underoath.

In 2006, their song "The New Black" (Music by Kevin Falk, lyrics by Keith Buckley) was featured as a bonus track in Guitar Hero 2 and also in the PlayStation 3 game MotorStorm. The band performed the song "We'rewolf" live on the ABC late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live on Halloween of 2007. From January-February 2008, Every Time I Die went on a tour with Killswitch Engage, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Parkway Drive. They also headlined the Take Action Tour, playing alongside From First to Last, August Burns Red, The Bled, and The Human Abstract. The band played the entire Warped Tour 2008.

On an episode of Steven's Untitled Rock Show, the band stated that their fifth full-length album would most likely be released during the summer of 2009.

At their 4th Annual Christmas Show in Buffalo, NY, Keith announced that the band had signed to Epitaph Records, stating that, "I haven't said anything yet, but we have, in fact, signed to Epitaph."

According to Keith, they "have a propensity to screw up interviews" by joking around with the interviewer.

At their February 2009 show with Underoath and Poison The Well in Auckland, New Zealand, Keith announced on stage that we can expect a new album this year.

During the 2009 UK tour with Gallows, a song titled "Buffalo 666" from the upcoming album New Junk Aesthetic was played for the first time. Also, two other tracks titled "The Marvelous Slut" and "The Sweet Life" are going to be on the new album. The upcoming album will also include guest vocals by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, Matt Caughthran of The Bronx and Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan. At the end of June it was announced that drummer Mike "Ratboy" Novak had left the band due to "personal conflicts".

A new song, "The Marvelous Slut," was released on July 8 as a free download.

On August 18, Every Time I Die released a second new song entitled "Wanderlust" on their MySpace.

On September 8, new Drummer Ryan "Legs" Leger will start touring with the band. Legs is from Cornwall/Toronto Canada and is known in Canada for his former touring gigs in bands The Salads, Kiki's Wonderland Adventures, Skye Sweetnam, Dead and Divine, Gone Hollywood and the hardcore group Oh The Humanity.

The band will be part of the European Taste of Chaos Tour at the end of 2009, supporting headliners Killswitch Engage and In Flames.
