Every Time I Die - Ex Lives

Question: Is 'Ex Lives' any good?
Answer: What the fuck do you think?

After what feels like an eternity in the relative wilderness, it comes as somewhat of a relief that Every Time I Die are back doing what they do best. Following nearly three years away, the band’s sixth album sees the Buffalo mob picking up where they left off, churning out huge, filthy slabs of hardcore punk and whiskey-soaked rock ‘n’ roll with an energy and swagger matched by few. From the chaotic opening of ‘Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space’ to the surprisingly slow-paced stagger of ‘Revival Mode’, this is a deafening, destructive and devilishly diverse affair, serving as a firm and timely reminder that when it comes to this particular game, nobody does it quite like this.

Well we knew it would be good, but we didn't know it would be this good. Saturday night saw Architects roll into the capital with Every Time I Die, Blessthefall and Counterparts in tow. If you were there, you know.
