Every Time I Die Recording New Material With Kurt Ballou (Converge)

Every Time I Die Promo

Metalcore veterans and UTG favorites Every Time I Die have announced plans to record new music in 2014. In a Facebook post, the band confirmed that they’re currently at GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts with Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou behind the soundboard, working on a follow-up to 2012’s fantastic Ex-Lives.

The band recently finished up a European tour with A Day To Remember and has announced plans to play the entirety of Vans Warped Tour 2014, so the timing of new music is perfect. With a member of Converge producing the new songs, it’s safe to assume that Every Time I Die isn’t slowing down the chaotic brand of hardcore they’ve come to perfect. You can read a statement from frontman Keith Buckley on working with Ballou after the jump.

Kurt Ballou had always intimidated the living shit out of me, so I was overjoyed when the decision was made to record our next record with him at GodCity and I mean that sincerely. I’ve been a fan of his work for over a decade. His records are terrifying and moving and they sound like they were written and recorded under great duress, which is exactly how this style of music should be made. This month we join the pantheon. I couldn’t be more excited to see what he helps us learn about our own band that we didn’t realize for the past 15 years.
