In light of the recentissues surrounding Every Time I Die, I spoke to lead singer Keith Buckley exclusively about the whole ordeal and how this whole mess got started. You can read his answers in the replies. Remember, the DVD that started all this, Shit Happens The Series?, hits stores October 26th.
After our decade "best of" lists, there's certainly a disagreement and a consensus amongst staff members and users alike. Let us not forget the discussion that the site received for the Absolute Classics column either.
I introduce to you the "New Classics." Once in a while, we'll write why we think a certain album, given time, will go down as that band's monument, or most significant release, and the impact it seemed to have musically and socially.
Outside the box of the obvious choices, I'm going to pick one from my decade list to start this thing off. Jump to the replies to see my thoughts on why Every Time I Die's Hot Damn! has the potential to go down as a "New Classic."
Update: The chat is now over. Big thanks to Keith, Jordan, Andy, and Josh for spending a couple of hours chatting with fans.
Every Time I Die will be chatting in this thread at approximately 9 p.m. ET. Come in to discuss their new album, New Junk Aesthetic, which is currently in stores, your favorite live experience, or just say hello.
