Every Time I Die may sadly be broken up, but we’ve now got two active bands from former ETID members and both put new music out this week. We just got a new Better Lovers song yesterday, and now vocalist Keith Buckley has released the second single by his new band Many Eyes, following “Revelation.” Like “Revelation,” new single “Mystic Cord” finds Keith and his bandmates Nick & Charlie Bellmore fusing ETID-style metalcore with their love of ’90s grunge, and the results are pretty awesome.
“Lyrically, the song is about untangling ourselves from the traditions that bind us to past trauma. I hoped to express the idea that it’s not enough to just put up a boundary, there has to be the deeper, more difficult work of separating one’s entire life path from the path of those who harm us,” Keith says via press release.
Check out the song and its visual (by Jake Johnston and Matthew Collamore) below.
Many Eyes’ first tour will be alongside headliners Thursday (playing War All The Time for its 20th anniversary) and the reunited Rival Schools. The final stop is at NYC’s Irving Plaza on February 24. All dates are listed below.
