The fifth offering from the band’s forthcoming Radical, provides social commentary for a world gone to well… shit.
The Buffalo hardcore behemoths of Every Time I Die continue their charged towards the October 22nd release date of their highly-anticipated ninth album, Radical, with yet another serving of slam in the biting single, “Planet Shit”.
The track showcases the band’s signature brand of hostility and horsepower, combined with vocalist Keith Buckley’s no-bulshit assessment of the social upheaval that has been that has defined the last couple of years. Watching people take to the streets and voice their discontent with the status quo of inequity, Buckley took things a step further and put pen to paper for the latest track. The frontman defines the aim of the track simply, “I was just calling it like I was seeing it.”
Following suit from previously released showings from the album, “Planet Shit” echos the same nuanced aggression that have anchored tracks like “Post-Boredom,” “AWOL,” and the album’s introductory one-two punch of “A Colossal Wreck” and “Desperate Pleasures”.
Though Buckley is not oblivious to the world around him, he explains that the genesis of the record’s angst is more of a personal journey rather than overly political record. “I’m dealing with difficult matters this time that isn’t only personal for me but are also universal and more communal experiences,” Buckley 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.”
