During our coverage of the 2013 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, we had the chance to catch up with Every Time I Die vocalist and lyrical mastermind Keith Buckley. Shortly after an incident where the band was forced to stop mid-performance at this year's JAMboree Festival due to gunfire, we got the inside scoop on what really happened that day, along with plenty more essential Every Time I Die knowledge.
Every Time I Die
Black Sabbath released 'God is Dead?' on April 18 as the band's first official single from the massively anticipated new album '13.' 'God is Dead?' was unleashed upon us all the day before the 2013 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival began, and to our surprise, most of the festival bands we interviewed hadn't actually heard the track yet. Thus, we busted out the iPod, attached some sweet Bose headphones and offered musicians from acts such as Anthrax, Hatebreed, Every Time I Die + others their first taste of '13.'
Hatebreed are really taking to the road in early 2013. The Connecticut hardcore outfit are about to finish a current string of dates with Shadows Fall, Dying Fetus and the Contortionist, but after only a small amount of time to relax along with a handful of international dates, Hatebreed will hit the U.S. highways once again beginning April 9.
We've got two open slates in this week's Death Match after Katatonia claimed their fourth and final victory over High on Fire, entering the Death Match Hall of Fame and earning the title of "immortal" for the song 'Dead Letters.' Now that Katatonia have taken their place in the Hall, we've got two new bands that are set to duke it out for their own potential Hall of Fame spot.
