Published Oct 27, 2015Close to a year after Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley announced he'd prepped his first novel, the metalcore singer's Scale has now been given a proper release date. You can pick up Buckley's book in North America on December 15 via Rare Bird Books, while the UK edition lands November 19.
We'd previously learned that Scale acts as the fictional memoirs for Ray Goldman, "a hopeless and struggling indie rock musician." It's added in a synopsis that the "31-year-old guitar player" spends the book "seeking fulfillment in the wake of a life-altering tragedy," though it also has him "reflecting on the depravity and selfishness that hastened his descent towards it."
Themes said to be explored in Scale include "instability and balance, death and resurrection, perception and reality." The tome is being promoted to fans of punk rock and Charles Bukowski.

As for Buckley's duties with Every Time I Die, he and the rest of the band continue to promote their 2014 offering From Parts Unknown. They're currently handling UK crowds, but will be back in North America next month for a tour with August Burns Red. That trek hits Montreal and Toronto. You'll find the tour route over here.
