“Ex Lives”, the highly anticipated new album from magnificently brutal rockers EVERY TIME I DIE, can be streamed in its entirety at this location. The CD is set for release on March 6 via Epitaph Records.
“Ex Lives” was helmed by renowned heavy rock producer Joe Barresi (THE MELVINS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, PARKWAY DRIVE) and offers an unrelenting onslaught of ingeniously composed and furiously executed cathartic hardcore. This is the band’s highly anticipated follow up to their 2009’s raging masterwork “New Junk Aesthetic”, which Absolute Punk heralded as a musical “weapon of mass destruction.”

Commented EVERY TIME I DIE singer Keith Buckley: “We worked with director Robert Schober who has done incredible work for MASTODON, DEFTONES, METALLICA and now, us. The clip has a very ambiguously creepy David Lynch vibe to it and might be the first time we’ve never included a single one of our instruments in lieu of a story line that exists outside of us as members of a band. It’s dark and weird and while not completely adhering thematically to the lyrics, it sets a larger, broader mood which marries the song perfectly.”
Director Robert “Robo” Schober adds,”The video is a surrealist crime drama set on a lost highway…the story loosely interprets key phrases from the song…the guys were awesome and put up with many hours of freezing temperatures in the middle of the desert.”
EVERY TIME I DIE is currently on tour and will spend the summer adding their patented punk-infused metal to the annual Vans Warped Tour.
