Every Time I Die Recording New Album

Every Time I Die has issued the following update about recording a new album:

"we start recording today with steve evetts. you know that name is a palindrome? like that they might be giants record "I Palindrome I" which wasnt really a palindrome but it was clever in the same way that evetts isnt his real last name but it is steve pronounced backwards. is it clear i drove 21 hours? we got in last night from buffalo. 47 hours straight shot to orange county to start the new record today with evetts steve in anaheim. i listened to the same 5 howard sterns because the music on my ipod sucks and i would rather hear richard christie prank tradio than make the band suffer through the entire counting crows catalogue because while they're one of my favorite bands, the rest of the guys dont agree.

"i dont want to give away too much about this record in terms of the direction we're moving with it, but someone on absolutepunk.net said i could shit into a mic and they'd listen so they kind of ruined our big surprise. its basically just going to be one session of me "dropping the kids off at the pool" with 8 remixes. 6 of them dance versions using pro tools, vocoders and pitch shifters. another one with guest vocals by someone from a band that has neon slime merchandise at hot topic and then of course the original. whatever sells. we will be videotaping basically the entire process, posting portions on here and portions on our modlife site which will be open shortly. also, rather than trashing un-used lyrics like i normally do, ive held onto them. as i go through and rewrite and revise while here, ill be posting some of them so you guys can see the process rather than just the product. is that pretentious? maybe it is. fuck it maybe i wont do that. i dont know yet. its like "hey hobo's, did you find a nice crouton in my trash? thats cool, i dont need it. i got a box of croutons". yea i think im gonna scratch that idea.

"i know i easily could have just erased the last few hundred words, but theres some tasty ass croutons in there i just couldnt part with. maybe at the end of the recording session ill just post them all at once. everything unused. yea thats a way better idea because then if i start doing little entries, itll seem way too disingenuous, too crafted, as if i was writing for the garage sale. the behavior of the observed changed drastically when it knows its being observed, know what i mean? thats why we turned down an offer by doctor pepper to write this record in a plastic bubble on mtv. so keep an eye out- but not too keen an eye- for more updates and such. bye"

ETID is one of my favorite bands! Kinda hoping they go back towards Hot Damn though that album is their best.
