Farewell to ETID by 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.

Podcast - StrangeHouse by daniel davison

Seeing how I am very awful at keeping this blog updated with anything, you can hear a little about what I've been up to as of late via the StrangeHouse Podcast.  I recently sat down and chatted with them in a little courtyard on a very beautiful February afternoon in St. Louis.  We had a nice talk.

You can listen here if you are interested.

Summer is here // New ETID Record // Short film screenings by daniel davison

Been a very busy last couple of months.  I finished up recording the new Every Time I Die record in Buffalo.  Last month the Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 2 premiered at Facets Cinema in Chicago, which was amazing!  More screening dates can be seen below.  Also did a quick tour in the UK a few weeks back.  Then just left with ETID to play a few shows on the way to Warped Tour, which we'll be on for the next two months.  

The new ETID record "LOW TEENS" was announced yesterday, alongside our first song/video release from the record, "The Coin Has A Say".  The video premiered on RollingStone.com and can been seen here.  The video was shot by our good friend Joshua Halling


Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 2 - More screening dates!

Full Spectrum Features Chicagoland Shorts, Vol. 2 by daniel davison

I am extremely excited to announce that my short film "Edison" will be featured in Full Spectrum Features second annual Chicagoland Shorts, Vol. 2.  

The Chicagoland Shorts series will feature 10 filmmakers from Chicago, and celebrates the often-overlooked form of the short film, while bringing together the best of the so-called "niche" cinemas - experimental, short documentary, dance, and films by queer filmmakers, women, and people of color. The program intends to join those niches into one expansive, rich evening of cinema - helping general audiences experience cinematic versions of Chicago they may have never thought to access. 

The Chicago premiere is set for May.  I will have more information on that as well as other screening, soon.  Stay tuned!
