Hot Damn! Every Time I Die to Play Penn State

On April 19, Every Time I Die will be performing at the HUB, all thanks to The Asylum, a club of music lovers who like to bring some killer national recording artists to State.

So far, not much is really known about this event, other than the event page on Facebook.

Founded in 1998 by brothers Keith and Jordan Buckley, the band has been around for quite some time, and has quite a distinct sound. The Buffalo-based metalcore band will bring a lot of energy and excitement to the HUB. They’re not your generic metalcore band either, and are able to differentiate themselves from other bands in the scene today.

Some of the bands that they have toured with include Norma Jean, Bleeding Through, Four Year Strong, New Found Glory, and Killswitch Engage. They also were headliners on the 2008 Take Action Tour alongside August Burns Red, From First to Last (in a post-Sonny Moore aka Skrillex era), The Bled, and The Human Abstract. They will also be playing the entire Vans Warped Tour this summer; the first time they have played the music fest since 2010, where they only played a few selected dates. They are currently on the Dead Throne tour with The Devil Wears Prada, letlive., and Oh, Sleeper. If you want to see the band before they come here, they’ll be playing at Croc Rock in Allentown on the 28th of this month.

While their song titles and lyrics might not seem pleasant, their style and live performances are something that can not be missed. Their blend of southern metal, metalcore, and heavy guitar riffs are not for the weak at heart.

On a lighter note (for those who are weak at heart), they did cover Guns ‘N Roses’ “I Used to Love Her,” for the 2004 compilation, Bring You To Your Knees – A Tribute to Guns ‘N Roses. It’s a pretty decent cover, especially since it is much different than their normal sound.

Perhaps you might be interested in one of their bigger hits, so here’s a video of them performing ‘Wanderlust,’ off of their 2009 release, New Junk Aesthetic, live from Brisbane, Australia.

Their latest release on Epitaph Records, Ex Lives, was released on March 6. Here’s the official video for their first single off of it, ‘Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space,’ directed by Keith Buckley. However, the video has some grotesque elements, and is a little strange in general, so watch at your own discretion. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
