As well as the bands on the line-up, Outbreak has announced that next year’s festival will include a skate ramp, art and photography exhibition, record and zine fair, independent market and more. Reviewing Outbreak Fest in 2018, NME called the event “a visceral, thrilling celebration of the last true subculture.”

Every Time I Die released their ninth album, ‘Radical’, on October 22 via Epitaph, marking their first album in five years. It featured the singles ‘AWOL’, ‘Post-Boredom’ and ‘Planet Shit’, as well as the double A-side ‘A Colossal Wreck’/‘Desperate Pleasures’.

Meanwhile, following frontman Keith Buckley’s recent announcement of his impromptu touring hiatus, the band said in a statement on social media that they’re working on their issues with Buckley “privately”.

“Now that I have seen the ‘official statement’ indicating that ETID is finishing the tour without their singer, I think I’m ready to tell you all a little bit about exactly WHY my mental health has had to become a priority over ETID,” Buckley initially tweeted.

After cancelling the last three shows of their tour, the band tweeted an apology to fans, writing: “Please give us a moment. And we will all see you at Tid The Season.”
