Every Time I Die's singer/lyricist Keith Buckley will be releasing his first book! It's a semi-autobiographical tale called 'SCALE'. Keep reading for the synopsis.

Rare Bird Books will publish Buckley's debut novel titled 'SCALE'.

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.

SCALE chronicles Ray Goldman’s journey downward through the adversarial trials that sometimes prove necessary in facilitating an eventual ascent into truth and happiness. The odd chapters of the novel find Ray, now a 31-year-old guitar player, seeking fulfillment in the wake of a life-altering tragedy while the even chapters see him reflecting on the depravity and selfishness that hastened his descent towards it. SCALE is about the relationship between instability and balance, death and resurrection, perception and reality, but ultimately it is about the endless war waged between our disquieted minds and our noble hearts.

If you've ever read Keith's lyrics, you know he comes up with some great stuff. Or if you've seen any of the Every Time I Die DVD's, you know they did some crazy stuff. Seeing that it's semi-autobiographical, I'm sure some of that stuff will make it in there. I'm real anxious to read this!

Rare Bird Books says that if you're a fan of 'pop culture, Americana, Punk Rock music, and Charles Bukowski’s HAM ON RYE...lookout!'

The novel is due out in late 2015 or early 2016.
