Since then, three of Buckley's former ETID bandmates — his brother Jordan, Steve Micciche and Clayton "Goose" Holyoak — launched their new band Better Lovers, featuring ex-Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato on the mic.
Now, Buckley has put a name to his own post-ETID project. In a handwritten note posted on social media, the singer introduced his new band Many Eyes, and shared that the group is rounded out by two brothers: guitarist Charlie and drummer Nick Bellmore.
Buckley said that he was introduced to the Bellmore brothers by Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta, and that the three of them have been writing nonstop for over a year. Nick is a former drummer of Portland thrashers Toxic Holocaust, and both siblings currently play in Twisted Sister vocalist Dee Snider's solo band.
There's still no music to be heard from Many Eyes, but it sounds like things are well underway. Read Buckley's letter below.
"Dear you... Sup. It's me, Keith. Just wanted to let you know that I have a new band. It's called Many Eyes. Two brothers named Charlie and Nick Bellmore play guitar and drums, respectively.
"They also write, produce and record all the songs. I think they're brilliant and I'm confident that you will too.
"Jamey Jasta introduced me to them over a year ago and the three of us have not stopped writing since. Shoutout to Jamey Jasta, he is and always has been the realest.
"Many Eyes marks the beginning of a new chapter in my story. One that promises to be significantly different from the ones that preceded it.
"It'll be better. I'm better. I look forward to proving it, both onstage and off. See you out there. Love, me, Keith."
