Every Time I Die and The Ghost Inside will steam their concert from Grand Rapids, MI today.
Both bands record for Epitaph Records.
Every Time I Die
Buffalo hardcore band Every Time I Die is Keith Buckley (vocals), Jordan Buckley (guitar), Andy Williams (guitar), Stephen Micciche (bass), and Ryan “Legs” Leger (drums). They released their seventh album From Parts Unknown on Epitaph this year, which debuted No.32 on the ARIA charts, the highest chart of the bands career. It was produced by the legendary Kurt Ballou of Converge and it sees the band cementing their massive riffs, frantic rhythms, and brutal vocal work into the most awesomely devastating songs the band’s created so far. That says a lot for band who has been together for over sixteen years. In their 4 star review, The Music says From Parts Unknown “kicks like a mule from front to back, leaving you dazed by the end of it all, in need of a cigarette and a good lie down.”
The Ghost Inside
The Ghost Inside is Jonathan Vigil (vocals), Aaron Brooks (guitar), Zach Johnson (guitar), Jim Riley (bass) Andrew Tkaczyk (drums). They are a Los Angeles-based hardcore band signed to Epitaph. They began as a group of friends in El Segundo, CA united by their shared passion for bands in the hardcore scene. The group stands for authenticity, dedication, perseverance and the most literal adherence to the core values behind their craft. Sonically, the group places equal emphasis on deeply personal vocals, urgent riffing and pile-driving breakdowns within the framework of their heavily melodic modern hardcore. Dear Youth is the group’s fourth studio album and was co-produced by A Day To Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon – a long-time friend of the band and supporter. Dear Youth came in at No.16 on the ARIA albums chart, the bands highest chart debut in this country, or anywhere for that matter. According to Blunt Magazine “this is a band that keeps growing, with no sign of slowing down”. Previous releases from The Ghost Inside are their first full-length Fury and the Fallen Ones (2008), Returners (2010), and Get What You Give (2012).
