Former Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley has announced his new band Many Eyes. The band features Buckley on vocals alongside Charlie and Nick Bellmore, the instrumentalists behind solo albums from vocalists like Dee Snider and Jamey Jasta.
"Dear you, sup. It's me, Keith," wrote Buckley about the new band. "Just wanted to let you know that I have a new band. It's called Many Eyes. Two brothers named Charlie and Nick Bellmore play guitar and drums respectively. They also write, produce & record all the songs. I think they're brilliant and I'm confident that you will too.
"Jamey Jasta introduced me to them over a year ago and the three of us have not stopped writing since. Shout out to Jamey Jasta. He is, and always has been the realest.
"Many Eyes marks the beginning of a new chapter in my story. One that promises to be significantly different from the ones that preceded it. It'll be better… I'm better. I look forward to proving it, both on stage and off. See you out there. Love, me… Keith."
Many Eyes is expected to release their first new single this Friday, October 13, as well as a limited edition merch drop via their website. In the meantime, the band has their debut tour for 2024 supporting Thursday on their War All The Time anniversary trek. Get those dates below and get your tickets here.

For those unaware of how things ended, Buckley originally announced that he would be taking a mental health break from the band and then later clarified that since getting sober, he felt ostracized from some members of the band. Every Time I Die then released a statement the day after saying they are resolving things "privately" with Keith, and that they would all perform their 'TID The Season show on December 11. Obviously that never happened and the band broke up.
After the end of the band, Buckley said Every Time I Die should've broken up in 2014 while Micciche made note of how hurtful it was that the band ended at all. Buckley would later surface with his side of the story once again, adding that maybe it wasn't really the end of the band. And now we're here, with Many Eyes.
