Buffalo, New York-based metal/hardcore veterans Every Time I Die have big plans for the end of 2021 — namely, a new record, Radical, set for release on Oct. 22 via Epitaph Records.

The album was officially announced on Tuesday, and came with the premiere of a roaring track titled “Post-Boredom”:

Part and parcel to the musical oeuvre of Every Time I Die is pummeling guitar riffs and relentless energy paired with vocalist Keith Buckley’s pointed lyrics, usually heavy on themes and inventive wordplay. As he said in a statement regarding “Post-Boredom”:

“’Post-Boredom’ was the first song I ever wrote that gave me the feeling of real Truth. I wasn’t hiding any secret confessions in metaphors, I was very much fed up with living an unfulfilling life and felt that I needed a death (either figuratively or literally) in order to have a fighting chance at finding new meaning. I see this song from a distance. It’s reflective but also, finally, detached. not a full ego death, but indicative that the process needed to start immediately in my own life. If you read the lyrics and it resonates with you, then you also need to recognize that you might be feeling unseen in your current form. So, what are YOU going to do about it if given the gift of death?”

The album also features the two standalone singles the band debuted in December 2020 — crushingly heavy tunes titled “Colossal Wreck” and “Desperate Pleasures.”

Radical will be Every Time I Die’s ninth full-length album, and as you might suspect its subject matter was shaped in part by the state of the world over the not-too-distant past, but with a slight twist. Per a news release, the record’s 16 tracks tackle humanity, decency, self-worth, and even a bit of spirituality more so than politics.

“I’m dealing with difficult matters this time that isn’t only personal for me but are also universal and more communal experiences,” said Buckley. “The songs are realistic in that they acknowledge that things require a lot of work. But it’s ultimately a very hopeful and uplifting record.”

The band will join Underoath for a big early 2022 tour also featuring Spiritbox — which promises to be a special tour for the hard rock/metal scene. The band’s dates:

8/28 Worcester, MA The Palladium*
9/23 Memphis, TN Growlers
