As the band continues to work on their Epitaph Records debut, Every Time I Die drummer Mike Novak has announced his departure:

I have officially quit Every Time I Die due to personal conflicts. I feel like im getting myself out of an uncomfortable, unhealthy situation, and its for the best for everyone, and im ready to move on with my life. I still plan to play and be involved in music and am looking for a new project to persue. This is a new exciting chapter in my life and hope anyone who has enjoyed me as a person/drummer in this band for the last 11 years, sticks with me for whatever endeavor the future brings me.

The band's next record is titled New Junk Aesthetic and is due out September 15, 2009. A song from the album is available here.
