Metalcore Veterans Every Time I Die, Vein + More Coming to San Antonio


  • Every Time I Die
Forming in 1998 and becoming one of the pillars in early to mid-aughts metalcore explosion, Buffalo’s Every Time I Die sort of came out of left field.

While their metalcore counterparts like Norma Jean and Fear Before the March of Flames (now known as just Fear Before) were exploring the experimental noise part of the spectrum, Every Time I Die threw in these bluesy southern rock riffs that added a little spice to the whole sound.

The band recently announced that they’re embarking on the 20 Years of Bullshit tour, which kicks off November 12 in Chicago and wraps up December 12 in Pittsburgh, but not before gracing the Alamo City on Tuesday, November 27 at Paper Tiger.

What’s also dope about this tour is that they’re bringing along arguably one of the most insane supporting lineups of new school hardcore and metalcore, which ironically is sounding more like the genre did back in the '80s and '90s. With the groove-centric embellishments of Turnstile, the old-school charm of Angel Du$t, and the youthful carnage of Vein, this bill easily might be one of our favorites of the year.
