Ex-Every Time I Die-gitarist Jordan Buckley, bassist Stephen Micciche en drummer Clayon “Goose” Holyoak hebben samen met voormalig The Dillinger Escape Plan-zanger Greg Puciato en muzikant/producer Will Putney (Fit for an Autopsy, End) de nieuwe band Better Lovers gestart. Greg zal de zang op zich nemen en Will speelt mee op gitaar. De eerste track, “30 Under 13”, is nu alvast te beluisteren.
Jordan Buckley zegt het volgende over de samenwerking:
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.
Greg Puciatio voegt eraan toe:
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.
En Will Putney zegt het volgende:
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.
