Every Time I Die guitarist Jordan Buckley knows that his band’s latest full-length, the aptly-titled Radical, is a force to be reckoned with. The multi-faceted, 16-song wrecking ball is rife with savage, yet tech-y breakdowns (Dark Distance), defiantly discordant American D-beat blitzes (Colossal Wreck), and, with the lead lick to latest single Planet Shit, a hickory BBQ sauce-slicked pull-off motif that nevertheless remains more hardcore than Hee-Haw.

While fans in the pit will no doubt go ape over the veteran act’s more familiar, ground-fracking grooves, he and co-guitarist Andy Williams are also excited to see how people will react to Radical’s wildest pivot – the dramatic, yet gently strummed intro to Thing With Feathers.
