Former members of Every Time I Die; guitarist Jordan Buckley, bassist Stephen Micciche, and drummer Clayton “Goose” Holyoak have joined forces with former The Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato, and producer/musician Will Putney to form the new band called Better Lovers.
The first single from the supergroup has debuted and is called “30 Under 13“, and an Eric Richter-directed video can be found below.
“Looking back, I’m so happy everything got me to where I am. The pandemic and the last few years made me hungrier and more grateful. This isn’t a hobby. This isn’t temporary. This is the next evolution for each of us. Greg and Will rejuvenated me and made me even more confident. Now, everybody needs to know we’re a wild animal that just broke out of the zoo—there’s no trying to put it back in the cage.”
“Jordan sent me some already finished instrumental tracks, and they hit me at just the right time. Those tracks woke up a side of me that I thought was fully extinct but was merely evolving and changing. To my complete surprise there was still something left in that area to dig at, and the vessel for it made sense.”
“It’s a group of loaded weapons all firing at full power ready for the next chapter of our music careers, and I can confidently say our collective best work is ahead of us.”
