Earlier this month, Every Time I Die embarked on a full US tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary. In an era where reunion tours are plentiful, 20 years of Every Time I Die felt long overdue, but at the same time, just right.
Every Time I Die are one of the few bands that have stood the test of time. From Ferret Records (remember Boys Night Out?), through the mid-2000’s Warped Tour emo/screamo craze, these guys have aged like fine wine and have never surrendered to one genre of music (similarly to the Deftones). In fact, they’ve only gotten better throughout the years. Not to mention, how do you pick a record (or two) to play every night from their near flawless discography?
The “20 Years of Bullshit” tour hit Los Angeles at The Regent Theatre this past Saturday, ending the California run. The stacked bill features three of hardcore’s biggest acts; Vein, Angel Dust, and Turnstile. While those three alone can draw a sold-out crowd, opening for one of the biggest bands of the past two decades doesn’t hurt either.
