Daniel Davison:


As some of you may have already heard, I am no longer playing drums in ETID. On the recent tour with TBS I let the guys know that it would be my last tour. It wasn't an easy decision, as I absolutely loved playing and creating music with them, however the amount of touring wasn't sustainable for me anymore. So after much consideration, I felt it was best that I move on. It was an extremely amicable exit – I'm happy for the future of ETID and I am excited about starting a new chapter for myself. I'll never forget the incredible experiences that made up my time in ETID. The shows were absolutely unbelievable, life giving. The time spent writing and recording LOW TEENS together was one of the most prolific, focused, and enjoyable experiences that I've ever had as a musician. I'm very grateful for my time spent with Andy, Jordan, Steve, and Keith – I love and respect them all very much as people and musicians and I wish them the best. Thank you so much to all of you who have supported ETID – past, present, and future – it truly doesn't go unnoticed. May the inimitable force that is Every Time I Die continue to move forward strong.
