The atmosphere crackled with anticipation as See You Space Cowboy took the stage as one of the opening acts for Better Lovers. Hailing from the hardcore and screamo scene, See You Space Cowboy unleashed a blistering set that ignited the venue with raw energy and cathartic intensity. Their chaotic yet precise performance served as the perfect precursor to the main event, setting the stage for an unforgettable night of music. As they left the stage to thunderous applause, the crowd buzzed with excitement, eager for what was to come from Better Lovers.


When Better Lovers first announced their formation just over a year ago with some of the most prolific musicians in the metalcore scene (ex-Every Time I Die and Dillinger Escape Plan), it did not seem real. The anticipation and excitement carried through to the stage where each member was clearly very pleased to be back on the road with brand new energy. Jordan Buckley on the lead guitar burst out of the darkness running around stage right creating his own circle pit whilst shredding the technical riff of ‘Become So Small’. Lead singer Greg Puciato reached out to the crowd several times engaging in crazed screams as the fans yelled back to him.

Better Lovers-8

Despite only having only one EP out, this did not stop the band from filling an hour with an electrifying performance and a solid cover of ‘Rusty Cage’ by Soundgarden. This very much is just the beginning to a bigger and longer career for Better Lovers.
