Buffalo, New York-based band EVERY TIME I DIE has reportedly inked a deal with Epitaph Records.
In a July 2008 interview with U.K.'s Rock Sound magazine, EVERY TIME I DIE frontman Keith Buckley stated about the band's label situation, "Our latest album was the last thing we had to deliver for Ferret so we are in limbo. We are talking to some labels right now, I think people will be very pleased to know that it looks like we will not be signing with a major. Some were interested but I don't think we even got down to discussing deals, I know I would have signed a Shakira-esque 100 million dollar 360 deal but it never seemed to come up in conversation."
Chuck Stark of TheMetalUnion.com conducted an interview with Keith Buckley on August 9, 2008 at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts on the Vans Warped Tour. Watch the five-minute chat below.
EVERY TIME I DIE sold almost 14,000 copies of its last album, "The Big Dirty" (Ferret Music), in the United States in its first week of release in September 2007 to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart.
"The Big Dirty" was produced by Steve Evetts and was described by the band as "the CD you would compile if asked to make a mix of the best EVERY TIME I DIE songs you haven't heard yet. Ten-plus tracks that tore from our filthy hands like the creature that jumped out of that dude's stomach in 'Alien'."
