Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley Explains Why Glassjaw Are “God Status” To Him


0

Every Time I Die, etc. vocalist Keith Buckley has chatted with Revolver on the impact the band Glassjaw has had on him over the years. The piece was published around Glassjaw just having launched a new 20+ anniversary vinyl collection. When Buckley was asked what Glassjaw‘s debut album “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence” and its 2002 follow-up “Worship And Tribute” mean to him, he replied:

“Almost everything. “Almost” because I had known forever that music was about taking daring artistic/creative chances, but Glassjaw showed me you didn’t have to be David Bowie to push boundaries. You could do cool, weird shit and push boundaries and discover or explore a sound and it didn’t have to be a gimmick. It just had to be honest and unapologetic. Glassjaw set a bar for me in that sense. I began trying to find the least ‘expected’ melody or cadence and chip away at it until it finally vibrated with me. And that’s my instinct shortcut now. It tells me I’m onto something. It tells me, ‘Daryl would approve.’ [Laughs]”

Speaking about his first time hearing early demos of “Worship And Tribute” and “Ape Dos Mil” in particular, he offered:

“I remember thinking, “What the fuck are they doing? Hardcore bands can’t write songs like this.” I wanted to sing it. I wanted to be responsible for it, to say that I was in the band that had written it. The melody was so fucking cool. I was so insanely jealous. That song alone — let alone the whole album — elevated them to god status in my mind.”
