Radical, the highly anticipated ninth studio album from hardcore heroes Every Time I Die is out now via Epitaph Records.
In celebration of the release, the band has unleashed the music video for “Thing With Feathers.” Directed by Brandon Dermer, the video sees the disappearance of frontman Keith Buckley and an epic performance from the band among the Los Angeles skyline.
Produced and mixed by Will Putney, 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.
While inspired by the unrest and upheaval around the world over the past five years, Radical focuses on humanity, decency, self-worth, and even a bit of spirituality more so than politics.
“I’m dealing with difficult matters this time that isn’t only personal for me but are also universal and more communal experiences,” Keith explains. “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.”
