Every Time I Die : Game Of Thrones = pipi de chat

Le mélodrame du week-end passé, vous ne l’avez peut-être pas vu, nous a été offert par Every Time I Die. Et oui, vendredi la sphère musicale s’affolait puisque l’on apprenait qu’il y avait plus de rififi chez Every Time I Die que chez les Lannister ! Jugez donc, tout est parti d’un communiqué de Keith Buckley expliquant qu’il devait se retirer du groupe pour gérer son bien-être mental mais qu’il reviendrait pour le festival de fin d’année organisé par le groupe ;

« “Caring for my own mental health has taken priority over EVERYTHING else in my life. the Love it has brought to everything I do has been clear to everyone that has seen me and I value my progress way too much to allow a setback. I am taking a hiatus from ETID to prepare for TTS”

Ce sur quoi, le groupe a annoncé (puis retiré) :

“Mental Health is a real issue and when not treated has an impact on so many people. Keith needs to take this time to rest and prepare for the holiday shows and we wish him a quick recovery. We also understand that so many of you have been looking forward to these last few shows on our tour. We don’t want to let you down so we’ll be playing these last three shows without a vocalist.

Like Keith always says ’this mic is your mic’. So come and help us finish up this tour. Anyone that no longer wants to attend will be given refunds at point of purchase.”

Le groupe s’est donc empressé donc de confirmer la fin de la tournée sans vocaliste en mode « open mic » comme ils l’avaient fait au Hellfest il y a quelques années. OUI MAIS VOILÀ !

Et oui !!! On apprend alors par un communiqué de Keith dans sa baignoire (si, si) que c’était un stratagème visant à confirmer des propos entendus backstage de la bouche même de son guitariste de frère qui aurait souhaité évincé Keith.

“now that I have seen the “official statement” indicating that ETID is finishing the tour without their singer, I think I’m ready to tell you all a little bit about exactly WHY my mental health has had to become a priority over ETID. and trust I have receipts while meditating in a side room yesterday I overheard my own brother tell an outsider that ETID had been in talks to replace me this entire time. I thought they were my biggest supporters. but Jordan had lied. his concern was a cruel trick. their statement is proof.

traveling separately, away from alcohol and the behaviors of those who choose to drink, has brought me peace of mind and has made me the best performer I have ever been. I love the ETID community and finally felt like I was giving back in a meaningful way. and I will continue

to being ostracized from a band I have built for 20 years because I made a decision to do whatever it took to be a good Human Being hurts me deeply, but trust me when I say I am the most mentally fit I have ever been. this decision was made to protect myself from my own sibling”

Apparemment, depuis que le Keith est sobre, il est moins drôle et le reste du groupe, lui, il aime bien rigoler, jouer au beer pong, faire des trous dans les slips des copains… Du coup, ils ont voulu le virer ! Mais comme dans tout bon épisode de Game Of Thrones, c’était sans compter sur un retournement de situation et des fans ayant vite comprendre que Every Time I Die sans Keith, c’est MORT ! Du coup, rétropédalage en mode love to love :

“We apologize to the fans this weekend for the cancelation of the remaining 3 shows of the Radical tour.

Keith Buckley is a crucial member of Every Time I Die and we apologize if our previous statement made it seem as if he was in recovery or came off as insensitive to the issues at hand. We are working on things privately now.

Please give us a moment.

And we will all see you at Tid The Season.”

Depuis le reste de ETID et le frontman ont prévu de régler ça en off et maintenir les shows de fin de saison avec un Keith décidément au-dessus de la mêlée et ne souhaitant de mal à personne :

“Hey guys, I’m very OK, despite how things were framed online by the band’s statement; I did not have a relapse, didn’t have a breakdown. If I’m recovering from anything, it’s fucking heartbreak, but that’s a process that I’m used to getting through, so… I want to do ‘‘Tid The Season‘—obviously there’s gonna have to be some changes made—I wish no one any harm. I just want to lovingly disconnect, psychically, emotionally, mentally for a little bit and re-establish the boundaries that were broken repeatedly over the past 20 years. So you’ll see me soon, I’ll see ya soon, it’ll be great, we’re great.”

Espérons donc que cela se règle tranquillement, même si nous, pauvres européens n’auront pas la chance de voir le festival prévu à Buffalo par le groupe, jugez plutôt :
