Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley To Release New Novel “Scale”

Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley past life as an English major no doubt came to aid him in his latest venture. Buckley has penned a semi-autobiographical novel titled “Scale“. It will mark his first venture as a published author. Publisher Rare Bird Books provided the following synopsis:

“Ray Goldman will outdrink you, out-party you and, unfortunately for him, probably outlive you. As a hopeless and struggling indie rock musician, Ray’s best chance of discovering any beauty and purpose in his dysfunctional life will come only when he ceases to struggle against life itself. These are his memoirs.

Scale chronicles Ray Goldman’s journey downward through the adversarial trials that sometimes prove necessary in facilitating an eventual ascent into truth and happiness. The odd chapters of the novel find Ray, now a 31-year-old guitar player, seeking fulfillment in the wake of a life-altering tragedy while the even chapters see him reflecting on the depravity and selfishness that hastened his descent towards it.

Scale is about the relationship between instability and balance, death and resurrection, perception and reality, but ultimately it is about the endless war waged between our disquieted minds and our noble hearts.”

Expect to find it in stores some time next year.

Faith No More have released the following stream of their first new single since 1997, “Motherfucker“. The track appeared today via Rolling Stone and will precede the groups new studio album, due in April on their own Reclamation Records. A limited edition 7″ will be issued for the track on November 28th (aka Black Friday’s ‘Record Store Day‘.) A digital single will be made available on December 09th. Faith No More keyboardist Roddy Bottum said of “Motherfucker

“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherfucker,’ a song about accountability.” Basically we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage… y’know, stuff like that.”
