After dropping off a current run of tour dates with August Burns Red and Stick To Your Guns to be with his wife and prematurely born daughter, Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley has revealed that letlive vocalist Jason Butler will be taking his place for the remainder of the tour.
To read Buckley’s statement thanking fans, Butler and Tyler Brand of Exalt – who recently filled in for a couple shows as well – be sure to look below.
Tickets to see Butler alongside Every Time I Die can be found here.
“I’m indebted to a lot of wonderful people for a lot of beautiful things lately but I need to take a moment to publicly thank Tyler Brand of Exalt and Jason Butler of Letlive for the sacrifices they are making in order to course correct ETID and keep them moving forward in my stead. My view from the outside this week has given me a new appreciation of the compassion inherent in the community where Every Time I Die has proudly built a home- one where the strong are selflessly motivated to compensate for the weak- and I am humbled to a sacred place outside of words. To all those who go to the shows and support Every Time I Die unflinchingly, your part in helping me keep my focus beyond the outermost limits of darkness is as fundamental as Tyler and Jason‘s. I am grateful for the things I have, particularly in the times when I have not. I hope to see you soon.”
