EVERY TIME I DIE Being Sued Over Fan's Amputated Toe
Good news! Every Time I Die is currently writing a new album. Vocalist Keith Buckley tells Kerrang! that there's "just been riffs going around" and that while they're taking their time, there will be another Every Time I Die record.
Weird news! According to Buckley in that very same chat, the band is also being sued by a fan for their amputated toe. The fan claims Buckley kicked a monitor off stage, which fell on her toe and broke it, causing it to be eventually amputated. Buckley says it never happened.
“One of the craziest stories I know of right now is that there’s a girl who says that we kicked a monitor over on her foot and that it broke her toe, and that she had to get her toe amputated. We’re currently in court disputing this.”
“…One, it never fucking happened. Two, how long are you responsible for a hurt toe? Like, even if the thing fell on her toe—which it absolutely didn’t—and she hurt her toe, but she didn’t clean it, she didn’t take care of it, she didn’t set it, and then it had to get amputated, like how long are we babysitting this fucking toe? I’m so pissed off when I think about that. That’s what’s currently on the top of my list.”
“I think it’s a big toe. They tried to show us pictures, and I’m like, ‘I’m not fucking looking at these pictures.’ It didn’t happen. It’s not my responsibility. I’m not responsible for that fucking toe. It’d be like if I broke my arm when I was in fucking seventh grade playing baseball. If my arm hurts, I’m not going to fucking call my coach and be like, ‘Dude, come on, man. Help me out here.’ He’s not responsible for that anymore.”
While the legalities aren't currently clear, having your toe amputated certainly seems like a very immediate lawsuit. Every Time I Die is currently out on the road with Coheed & Cambria and Mastodon.
