American metalcore stalwarts Every Time I Die have unfortunately made the decision to cancel their upcoming UK tour due to COVID-19 concerns. The band has stated that refunds will be available at the point of purchase for fans.
Due to the ongoing restrictions and financial liability for a tour of this size we have no option but to cancel the UK tour. Our apologies to our UK friends. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.

The Buffalo, NY band were originally going to embark on a nine-date tour with The Bronx, Jesus Piece and sanction, which was set to commence at Chalk in Brighton on January 27th, and conclude at London’s Roundhouse on February 5th. The band said in a statement: “Due to the ongoing restrictions and financial liability for a tour of this size we have no option but to cancel the UK tour.”
On a more positive note, frontman Keith Buckley has not changed his plans to embark on his Q&A tour “An Evening with Keith Buckley”, which will commence on February 7th in London, and will run for six dates, with other stops in Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Belfast and Dublin. Tickets for this Q&A tour can be found on Every Time I Die’s website. The band are also still scheduled to return to the UK for Manchester’s Outbreak Festival this June, performing alongside Knocked Loose, Turnstile, Touché Amore and Basement. Tickets and more information for the festival can be found here.
Last year, Every Time I Die released their highly anticipated ninth full-length studio album, entitled Radical. The album is the first since 2016’s acclaimed Low Teens, and proves that the group is showing no signs of slowing down musically. The riffs are sinister and frantic, complimenting vocalist Keith Buckley’s iconic, howling voice as he spits out bitter, scathing poetry about the world around him. The album is available via all streaming services, and physical media can be purchased here.
Every Time I Die was formed in 1998 in Buffalo, New York, with founding members Jordan Buckley and Andy Williams and Keith Buckley still remaining constant in the band to this day. The band enjoyed moderate success in their early years as a band, touring with Killswitch Engage after releasing their debut album Last Night In Town in 2001. The group would later go on to experience growing success with the release of their later albums, playing the now fan favourite “We’rewolf” from 2007’s The Big Dirty on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
