Better Lovers, who have been wrapping up work on their eagerly-awaited debut album, return to the road, anticipating a very busy year ahead, with numerous North American, and European tour dates and festival performances already confirmed.

In anticipation of the band’s back-to-back North American and European Spring treks, Better Lovers have released The Flowering, a three-minute track where the band, once again, demonstrates their explosive energy and the remarkable chemistry the fledgling band already possesses. The song is complemented by a Anthony Altamura-directed video that revels in its campiness, showcasing the five-piece outfit as they confront the less-than-friendly aspects of the natural world.

The Flowering is a song we’ve been playing live since day one,” Greg Puciato explains. “It came from the same batch as the God Made Me An Animal EP, so it’s nice to finally have it recorded and out there. It’s a perfect example of how Jordan, Mitch, Goose, and Will playing together sounds like an absolute freight train. Being able to play this live so many times before recording it really amplified that even more, really deepened the groove of it, the music swings so fucking hard. Not to mention the video is one of my favorite videos I’ve ever been a part of. The title and lyrics are an obvious metaphor for realizing that we are all more than what we’re conditioned to believe, and acknowledging the collective ‘waking up’ moment that we all seem to be going through right now.”

Better Lovers returned to the studio in January, recently wrapping up work on their debut full-length via SharpTone Records, with additional details to be revealed soon.

Better Lovers is Jordan Buckley, Clayton “Goose” Holyoak, Stephen Micciche, Greg Puciato and Will Putney. The band, which features former members of Every Time I Die, Fit For An Autopsy and The Dillinger Escape Plan, released their debut single 30 Under 13 in April of 2023, followed by the four-song God Made Me An Animal EP in July. In December they launched an annual holiday event, BLissmas, played annually in Buffalo, N.Y., with the inaugural event, spread over two nights, sold out upon on-sale. Consequence said the band “lives up to its billing,” Revolver instantly dubbed them as “your new favorite supergroup,” and Alternative Press described their initial offering as “ripping.”
