Every Time I Die release C++ (Love Will Get You Killed)

Every Time I Die

Every Time I Die have released their track C++ (Love Will Get You Killed), taken from upcoming album Low Teens.

The follow-up to 2014’s From Parts Unknown arrives on September 23 via Epitaph.

Frontman Keith Buckley was inspired to write the song by the experience of rushing to his wife in intensive care as she gave birth prematurely to their daughter last year – and nearly died in the process.

Buckley tells Billboard: “They took me to see her, but she was unconscious and hooked up to a bunch of machines. None of the doctors knew what happened. All they could do was monitor her vitals.

“She couldn’t talk because of the tubes so she just wrote words with her fingers on my arm. ‘Scary’ was what she wrote first.”

He continues: “I had never felt so helpless. I could do nothing for her. I couldn’t tell her it was going to be okay. I couldn’t even tell her that death wouldn’t be better – because I had no idea yet if our daughter had even made it.

“I kept asking doctors what the machines meant, and eventually I could tell they were sick of me asking so many questions. I realised that if I could understand what their beeps meant I might have some hope. I might have some answers.”

His wife and daughter both came through the trauma, but the situation has left deep marks throughout Low Teens. Buckley reports that most of the album is about the night his child was born, adding: “Writing lyrics at night, and feeling like I had made sense of some of my confusion, gave me hope. I would take that hope into the hospital rooms.

“We would get more good news. I would go back to writing lyrics with confidence. Confidence made me hopeful.”

The record features guest appearances from Panic! At The Disco’s Brendan Urie and Deadguy’s Tim Singer. Every Time I Die tour North America, Europe and Australia from October until January – full dates below.
