Buffalo-based hardcore heroes Every Time I Die release their highly anticipated ninth studio album Radical via Epitaph. Produced by Will Putney (Acacia Strain, Body Count, The Amity Affliction), Radical is the follow-up to 2016’s acclaimed Low Teens.
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. Radical is 16 tracks of peak-ETID, alchemized by a swampy summoning of southern rock and coarse poetry, the music swirls beneath sardonic and clever wordplay, cementing the band as leaders, not followers.
