Members of Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die form new band, Better Lovers
Members of Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die and Fit for An Autopsy have announced a new band, Better Lovers. The group comprises Greg Puciato, Jordan Buckley, Clayton “Goose” Holyoak, Stephen Micciche, and Will Putney, and today they’ve shared their debut single, “30 Under 13,” via SharpTone Records. The sub-two-minute track is just as intense and punishing as you might expect, given the pedigrees of the musicians involved. Hear it below.
“Looking back, I’m so happy everything got me to where I am,” explains Buckley. “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,” adds Puciato. “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.”
