It’s here! Hardcore supergroup Better Lovers have unleashed their “wildly fun” debut EP…

The band – Jordan Buckley, Clayton ‘Goose’ Holyoak, Stephen Micciche, Greg Puciato and Will Putney – have today (July 7) shared their highly-anticipated first proper effort together, entitled God Made Me An Animal.

“Surprise!” they announce. “Our debut EP, God Made Me An Animal, is out now. Four eclectic and wildly fun songs we’ve been kicking around for what feels like forever, it’s great to finally have these out in the world. Let it happen to you. Hear all this and more on tour all summer. The engine is turned on.”

Speaking about the journey to this point, Jordan reflects: “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.”
