Every Time I Die’s Keith Buckley Leaves Tour After Pregnant Wife Develops Life Threatening Ailment
Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley has been forced to leave the band’s tour due to an emergency with his wife and newborn child. Buckley revealed via Facebook that his wife had developed a life threatening complication while seven months pregnant, which required the immediate removal of the couple’s daughter.
ETID are currently on the road with August Burns Red, touring right up until the holidays. Luckily, when Keith’s wife, Lindsay, was rushed to the hospital, Every Time I Die were in Toronto, only two hours away from their hometown of Buffalo, N.Y. Keith was able to quickly get to his wife and newborn daughter and now awaits for both their conditions to hopefully stabilize.
Keith posted about the ordeal on Every Time I Die’s Facebook page:
last night as I was preparing for my book release party at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, I received an urgent call that my wife Lindsay- who was at the time only 7 months pregnant- had developed a rare and life threatening complication which required immediate removal of our child in order to save both her life and Lindsay’s. Andy Williams and our tech Kevin White raced me to the hospital in Buffalo where I saw sights that no man, father or husband should ever have to see. It is here that I now wait as their conditions stabilize. ETID has allowed me all the time I need in order to handle this extremely delicate situation but they will- with my blessing- continue the tour without me, enlisting the help of very close friends to handle vocal duties. I apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause and will do all I can to make it up to you. For the moment, however, all of my being is focused on the recovery of my lionhearted wife and my frail but beautiful new daughter. thank you for your understanding. give my bandmates my love when you see them.
We’d like to send all our positive thoughts to Keith Buckley and his new family.
