Every Time I Die have announced they are breaking up.

Four members of the group—Andy Williams, Jordan Buckley, Stephen Micciche and Clayton Holyoak—confirmed the split with a joint statement revealing that their final performances with the band took place on December 11, 2021.

It's understood that the break-up follows discussions about the tensions between members of the band and frontman Keith Buckley, who at the end of last year announced he was taking a brief hiatus from performing to work on his mental health. The full statement reads:

"Andy, Jordan, Steve and Goose’s last show with Every Time I Die was on Dec 11, 2021. While we hoped to come to an agreed upon legal statement that outlined the truth, we were informed today of something planned to be released not mutually agreed upon that consists of inaccuracies and controls a narrative to benefit one.

There has been no direct communication with Keith, because it’s either impossible for direct communication with him solely or we’ve been cut off to any and all communication by him himself.

Every Time I Die was these 5 members, and we were never budging or accepting any changes. Simply, there is zero truth about the band continuing on with a new singer.

Lastly, we wouldn’t be where we are today without every single person that’s backed the band in any & all ways. While we’re extremely disappointed in how this was played out online in front of you, your support and the memories we have because of you all will always be cherished.

See you soon.

Forever grateful,

Andy, Jordan, Steve & Goose"

Buckley has responded by sharing a letter he received from law firm Savur Law, dated December 20, 2021. It requests that Buckley "immediately cease and desist all usage of the band name, logo, or other intellectual property until there is a formal signed separation agreement between the parties."

The social media accounts of the band have been deactivated following the news. Every Time I Die put out their ninth studio album, 'Radical', in October 2021.
