Concert video lovers beware! The video “Shit Happens” was filmed over a two-year period in the life of the band Every Time I Die and as a result, it is not your typical concert film or band focus feature. You don’t get the aspect of being at a full show from start to finish on this one. The video serves up to the viewers a “tour film” and from this you get to enjoy the ridiculous goings on that this band seems to get involved in on a daily basis. You can immediately notice that ETID is a band that really seems to have fun doing what they do and the film shows just how tight the bonds are between all of the members. The fact that the film has been shot in such a candid manner really brings you into their world and how grueling the aspects of touring on a day-to-day basis actually is. When you find yourself in such a confined amount of space and under such demanding schedules of the road you WILL get on peoples nerves. You will fight, you will drink and most definite you will bust each other’s chops often to the point of being downright cruel just for the sake of some laughs. There does not seem to be a dull moment anywhere in their lives and ETID shows a true side of them by using this candid footage. It’s the kind of footage that is a treat for those viewers who enjoy a large amount of behind the scenes stuff more than just performance clips or a straight concert from song one to the end rundown. Some of it is very, very gross at points and while I could have done without one or two vomiting scenes there are those who find this hilarious.
