Published Nov 19, 2014While Every Time I Die's Keith Buckley has been doling out songs From Parts Unknown for over 15 years now, the metalcore vocalist will be flexing his writing skills anew with the release of his first novel, Scale.
The fledgling author's debut project has been given a winter 2015/2016 release through Rare Bird Books, who described the book in a press release as being about "the endless war waged between our disquieted minds and our noble heart."
A synopsis explains that the protagonist of Buckley's book is Ray Goldman, "a hopeless and struggling indie rock musician" who is "seeking fulfillment in the wake of a life-altering tragedy while the even chapters see him reflecting on the depravity and selfishness that hastened his descent towards it."
Scale acts as Goldman's memoirs, with the tome dealing with themes of "instability and balance, death and resurrection, perception and reality."
While excerpts from the novel have yet to be unveiled, Scale is apparently recommended to fans of Charles Bukowski's Ham on Rye, punk rock and pop culture.
Earlier this year, Every Time I Die issued their seventh studio full-length, From Parts Unknown, and recently hit up Canada with a batch of fall tour dates. His travelling with the band this year also led to a series of journal entries for Bring the Noise.
Every Time I Die are currently still out on the road in the U.S., and you can see all their dates here.
