It would usually be right around this time of year that Every Time I Die announced their annual 'Tid The Season holiday performance, but with the band breaking up to open 2022, that is clearly off the table. However, ex-frontman Keith Buckley has teased that we'll be hearing from him in 2023.

Months after footage emerged of his ex-bandmates in the studio at work, Buckley hopped on Twitter today to tease some forthcoming material of his own.

"It's heartbreaking not having TIDmas to look forward to, but looking beyond the Holidays I can promise you'll see me again in 2023," he shared. "I've been recording songs with a new band since September and the new music has never been heavier. See you in the pit." Buckley's new band could potentially include Quicksand (and ex-Deftones) bassist Sergio Vega, who revealed he was working with the ETID vocalist and Spotlight drummer Chris Enriquez back in April. 

Weeks into January, Every Time I Die announced their dissolution with a statement signed by all members save for vocalist Buckley, who later issued a respective statement on the metalcore outfit's "inevitable" breakup. After those members expressed the desire to form a "different band" in the aftermath, bassist Stephen Micciche shared a detailed account of the fallout that centred on a rift between the brothers Buckley.
