Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Queen, Killer Be Killed) has set October 23rd as the official street date for his debut full-length album, ‘Child Soldier: Creator of God’ (pre-order).
Today, Greg has unleashed his new song titled “A Pair of Questions” in music video form. Check out the Jesse Draxler-directed clip below.
“I’d been writing for so many different projects, Dillinger, then The Black Queen, and Killer Be Killed…and I just kept on writing,” says Puciato regarding the upcoming LP. “It felt as if I had more to say, but nothing that necessarily filled the script of those bands, so I ended up with something that I found to be intensely personal and super satisfying, but also confusing as far as what to do with it. When I realized that it was a solo release, it was sort of an ‘oh that’s interesting’ moment, both terrifying and exciting at once, and challenging, and new, and that combo is almost always a good sign, so I committed to it. It’s important to continue taking risks in order to grow both your creativity and your future possibilities, to create new avenues and freedoms for yourself, and it also felt like a good time for me to integrate and own everything that I am into one thing, without fragmentation or limitation. I needed to come out from telling myself that I always have to be ‘guy in a band,’ and to release this as my own name.”
‘Child Soldier: Creator of God’ was recorded in Los Angeles in 2019 through 2020. The album was produced by Nick Rowe (Vampire Weekend, Haim) and mixed by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Cure). The LP also features musicians Ben Koller, Chris Pennie and Chris Hornbrook.
