Every Time I Die Buckley's novel out next month

Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley’s debut novel will be published next month.

Scale is issued via Rare Bird Books on November 19 in the UK and December 15 elsewhere.

Buckley revealed the project last year and said it was a semi-autobiographical story about a musician who’s struggling after a life-changing tragedy.

Rare Bird say: “Ray Goldman will outdrink you, out-party you and, unfortunately for him, probably outlive you. As a hopeless and struggling indie rock musician, Ray’s best chance of discovering any beauty and purpose in his dysfunctional life will come only when he ceases to struggle against life itself. These are his memoirs.”

ETID tour the UK next month, before a show in Iceland is followed by a North American trek.
