Andy Williams & Michael "Ratboy" Novak

Ex-Every Time I Die Members Andy Williams & Michael “Ratboy” Novak Have Been Jamming Together


The branching legacy of the already sorely missed Buffalo, NY metalcore outfit Every Time I Die has presented another interesting development. Earlier this year the band’s over twenty year reign came to an end amid a rift between vocalist Keith Buckley and the group’s remaining members: guitarist Jordan Buckley, guitarist Andy Williams, bassist Stephen Micciche and drummer Clayton “Goose” Holyoak.

Recent weeks have found Jordan in the studio with Micciche and Holyoak for a new project together. Likewise, Keith has also confirmed that he’s been in the studio with a new band as well.

One of the question marks surrounding the post-Every Time I Die activities of the aforementioned individuals has been the plans of Andy Williams. While Williams continues to pursue his professional wrestling career, appearing as ‘The Butcher‘ on the AEW roster, it has remained unclear if he has been involved with the recent sessions mentioned above.

While there’s no real clarity on that situation yet, Williams has at least seemingly confirmed that he has been jamming recently with at least one former member of Every Time I Die—just none of the ones mentioned above. In the below post shared by Williams on social media earlier today (December 07th), Williams can be seen playing with Michael “Ratboy” Novak, who handled the drums for Every Time I Die from 1998 through to 2009.
