Better Lovers

About the Artist

A group of tried-and-true musicians got together and found the sort of camaraderie and kinship you typically only see once in a lifetime. They didn’t overthink it. They didn’t waste a second. They simply left their blood, sweat, and tears on tape—like they’ve always done. For as much as Better Lovers represents the union of Every Time I Die members Jordan Buckley [guitar], Steve Micciche [bass], and Greg “Goose” Holyoak [drums] with The Dillinger Escape Plan and Killer Be Killed frontman Greg Puciato [vocals] and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Will Putney [guitar], it cements the bond of five friends around a shared vision. That vision is as uncompromising, unapologetic, and undeniable as anything they’ve individually done, yet it’s refined by experience and a commitment to a future together. They’re in it for the long haul…

“To me, this band is refreshing,” exclaims Jordan. “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 fucking zoo—there’s no trying to put it back in the cage.”

“Better Lovers feels like its own thing,” states Greg. “I’m in so many lanes right now, so one lane needed not to step on another. However, nothing I’m doing is this vicious. This is full-on scathing. It’s been enjoyable. I forgot how much I liked that.”
