In news that has broken many hearts around the world and around the office this morning, Maniacs have learned that Buffalo hardcore punk legends, Every Time I Die have broken up.
Guitarists Andy Williams and Jordan Buckley confirmed the breakup via posts to their personal social media, which were then reposted by bass player Steve Micciche and drummer Clayton 'Goose' Holyoak. You can view Jordan's posts, and read a transcription of them, 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
Vocalist, Keith Buckley has yet to comment publicly.
One of the most heralded hardcore punk bands of their era, Every Time I Die leave behind a cult-like fanbase of 'ETIDiots', nine studio albums and a reputation as one of the most unfuckwithable live bands to ever grace the stage. Their final studio recording was last years critically acclaimed Radical.
R.I.P. Every Time I Die. 1998-2022.
