Better Lovers Premiere New Song “The Flowering”


Better Lovers have premiered their track “The Flowering” online. While only just meeting an official release now, it was apparently the first song the band ever wrote together, according to guitarist Jordan Buckley.

The latter musician also noted that the song, which has previously been performed live and first aired April 02nd on SiriusXM, is one of seventeen the group are currently sitting on. While much of that material is expected to make its way out via a debut album from the group, release plans for it have yet to be shared.

A music video directed by Stray From The Path‘s Anthony Altamura accompanies this track and can be seen below. Vocalist Greg Puciato commented:

“‘The Flowering‘ is a song we’ve been playing live since day one. 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.”

The group consist of ex-Every Time I Die members Jordan Buckley (guitars), Stephen Micciche (bass) & Clayton “Goose” Holyoak (drums), as well as ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc. vocalist Greg Puciato, and Fit For An Autopsy, etc. guitarist Will Putney.
