Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley has spoken at length with Altpress.com regarding the bands newly-recorded, and as-yet untitled, next album. The group recently wrapped up tracking the effort with producer Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Tool) and are currently mixing it for an early 2012 release date.
When asked about what the album sounds like, Buckley replied:
“Everyone [in a band] is always saying the newest thing is their best work. No one is going to be like, “You know what, to be honest, [our new stuff] sounds like shit.” [But] this is the first record we’ve done with a new drummer [Ryan Leger]. You know, we’ve had our old drummer [Mike “Ratboy” Novak] from day one. When you make a new foundation for the band, it’s going to alter the way the things get built. It sounds like a different band; it sounds like it’s got a lot more energy to it, a lot more aggression. [Ryan’s] just a better drummer. You can tell there’s new vitality, which we haven’t had in a long time.”
On a related note, Trash Talk have been added as direct support on the bands forthcoming “Rock Sound Riot Tour” in the UK later this year. Defeater have also jumped on the bill as well.
