Keith Buckley (born November 19, 1979) is an American singer and musician, best known as the lyricist and vocalist for the metalcore band Every Time I Die and the heavy metal supergroup The Damned Things.

Early life and education

Buckley was born in Buffalo, New York. He attended Virginia Tech and then the University at Buffalo before doing music full-time. Keith Buckley was also an English teacher previously.[1]


Every Time I Die

In 1998 Keith established the band Every Time I Die with his brother Jordan Buckley in Buffalo, NY.[2] He describes ETID as a "Buffalo Bills tailgate party and a high school kegger".[3] During tours, they enjoy setting their hair on fire and drinking. One of Keith's writing tactics is to get incoherently drunk and see what comes out.[4]

On January 4, 2006, Keith and Every Time I Die were in a van accident but escaped unharmed.[5]

Keith also has a tattoo of Spock's head on a lawn chair, day dreaming about what he (Spock) would look like with a moustache. Spock has a tear coming out of his eye because he cannot grow a moustache.[6]

Side projects

He once joined Dillard Raymer and members of Fall Out Boy live to play a cover of Pantera's "Walk".

Buckley is a member of Finale, his side project.[7] The two-piece plays indie and acoustic music. Keith lent his vocal talents to an R&B hook in Chae Hawk's track "PBS"[8] and also "Stockholm Sindrome," a track with Philly/Pittsburgh electro-clash artist Pfunkt. He is also featured with Corey Letson on Four Year Strong's 90s cover album Explains It All covering the song "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" by The Smashing Pumpkins.

He is also a member of supergroup The Damned Things, founded in 2009, alongside members of Fall Out Boy and Anthrax.[9] The band released its debut album Ironiclast in 2010, but is on indefinite hiatus since 2012.


He has a younger brother, Jordan Buckley, who is a guitarist in the same band, and a younger sister named Jaclyn. Hot dogs are his favorite food.[10] He married his high school sweetheart, Lindsay on Halloween day 2009.[11]
