Every Time I Die have broken up

“We wouldn’t be where we are today without every single person that’s backed the band in any and all ways…”

Every Time I Die have broken up

Only a few months on from releasing the best album of 2021, Radical, beloved Buffalo bruisers Every Time I Die have called it a day.

Overnight, four out of five members of the band – Andy Williams, Jordan Buckley, Stephen Micciche and Clayton 'Goose' Holyoak – shared that they had played their last show with ETID on December 11, 2021 and would not be continuing.

Remaining member, vocalist Keith Buckley, then uploaded a legal document about this split from his former bandmates, dated December 20, which had ordered him to "immediately cease and desist all usage of the Band name, logo, or other intellectual property until there is a formal signed separation agreement between the parties which authorizes you to do so".

Read Andy, Jordan, Stephen and Goose's full statement below:

"Andy, Jordan, Steve and Goose's last show with Every Time I Die was on Dec 11, 2021. While we hoped to come to an agreed upon legal statement that outlined the truth, we were informed today of something planned to be released not mutually agreed upon that consists of inaccuracies and controls a narrative to benefit one.

"There has been no direct communication with Keith, because it's either impossible for direct communication with him solely or we've been cut off to any and all communication by him himself.

"Every Time I Die was these 5 members, and we were never budging or accepting any changes. Simply, there is zero truth about the band continuing on with a new singer.

"Lastly, we wouldn't be where we are today without every single person that's backed the band in any & all ways. While we're extremely disappointed in how this was played out online in front of you, your support and the memories we have because of you all will always be cherished.

"See you soon.

"Forever grateful,

"Andy, Jordan, Steve & Goose"

The band's Twitter and Instagram accounts look like they have now been deactivated.
