Greg Puciato Announces “Fuck Content” Streaming Event

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) has announced a special streaming event, which he is calling “Fuck Content.” The show will take place on December 11 and it will feature a combination of visual art, audio, live performance, and studio footage.

Puciato commented:

“‘Fuck Content‘ is just another creative release, but in a different medium, marrying visual art, audio, live performance, studio footage….a lot of different elements together. I wanted to make the modern equivalent of a VHS release you would have bought from a band decades ago, but with more of an arthouse sensibility.

Like any other thing I’ve released, and that we’ve released with Federal Prisoner, it was born from excitement, and flamed up really quickly from the initial spark into what it became. Jesse (Draxler, Federal Prisoner label-partner and acclaimed visual artist) and I were having a conversation about making a visual release, to tie into my record, that would include live performance but also much more, and got to talking about the idea of ‘content,’ how dumb and revolting the idea of, and emphasis on, ‘content’ is overall, and how the opposite of content is substance, that we needed to make sure whatever we made had real substance.

We were both ranting about it and at one point I said, ‘fuck content,’ and that was the spark we needed to build up the fire to start putting this together. As we were making it, it took twists and turns, and new ideas formed, just like making a record, and we just followed them to their natural end points.

This for me is a release, as much as any other, it’s not a livestream, it’s not some way to placate people who aren’t seeing shows, or to keep me busy. It’s something we sank our teeth into creatively, as much as a record, and I’m excited for everyone to see and hear what we’ve got to show them.”

Tickets for the event can be found HERE.

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Etc.) To Appear In New Horror Short Film “Metavision”

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) will be featured in an upcoming horror short film called “Megavision.” The clip, which will also include an appearance from David Yow (The Jesus Lizard), was directed by Jai Love (“Dead Hands Dig Deep”) and it will debut on October 15 as part of the “Screamfest” in Van Nuys, CA. Puciato commented:

“I had actually just seen Jai’s film, ‘Dead Hands Dig Deep,’ when he reached out to me. Life is full of synchronicities. This is the second time I’ve been asked to kill someone in a video of some sort, the first time being in a music video. I dunno what that says about me. This time it was like ‘Can you kill someone, while cackling with laughter, with David Yow?’ Uh yeah, I think I’m exactly your guy. Tell me when and where.”

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Etc.) Releases New Album “Child Soldier: Creator Of God” Three Weeks Early

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) has digitally released his new album “Child Soldier: Creator Of God“ via Bandcamp. The effort will also hit other digital outlets on October 9. The record was supposed to come out on October 23, but Puciato was forced to move up the release after it was leaked online.

Puciato commented:

“I can’t believe this is a thing someone thought would be cool to do to an independent artist in 2020, but some dipshit reviewer(we know who it was, they’re individually watermarked, he’s already being dealt with etc) leaked my record two days ago. Pretty cool dude, I hope you feel like the cool kid in school now. Younger me would’ve put his name out there for everyone to see, but hey guy…it’s all good. You do you.

What we ARE doing is using it as an example of how to be adaptable and flexible and roll with the punches, so we’re releasing the high quality digital version of the record now on Bandcamp, and the streaming sites(Spotify, Apple, etc) will get the record on Friday, October 9th.

Shit happens and you gotta move quick to adapt. I don’t mind a little chaos. Would I like everyone to go grab a high quality digital copy or check it out next Friday streaming? Yeah, that’d be cool.

I’d much prefer what I’ve been working on creating, recording, and readying for the last 18 months to be heard in an actual high quality format from front to back rather than some low quality rip from some goober’s leak. Either way, happy October, the record’s out three weeks early.

Vinyl will still be shipping around the original release date of October 23rd. We still have some copies of the European variant and the Australian variant left…feel free to check ’em out, along with various pieces of merch. You can find those links at the Federal Prisoner website… That’s the important part for me right now. I just want everyone to hear the record the way it was intended to be heard.

We’re also cooking up something cool and related….I can’t really spill the beans on that yet….but will do so very very soon.

So to recap: fuck piracy, fuck that dude that leaked my record, support independent arts and culture(more now than ever), the album’s out now, some other shit is gonna be announced soon, hope you’re all staying sane and safe, keep your wits about you and have some empathy and tolerance for one another, and stay intolerant of being turned against each other.

Greg Puciato & Jesse Draxler Premiere “Everyone Dies And Nothing Goes On” Video

Jesse Draxler and Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) have shared a video for their new collaborative track “Everyone Dies And Nothing Goes On.” This song is from Draxler’s new album “Reigning Cement,“ which is available now. That effort was put together after Draxler challenged various musicians “to create sound collages/songs using only 34 sonic assets [he] supplied.”

Draxler told Brooklyn Vegan of the following:

“To accompany Greg‘s track I wanted to split the video into two halves mirroring the song itself. Building chaos crashing into a psychedelic afterlife. Death and the subsequent soul leaving the body. Pre and post extinction. All of the footage was shot by myself and again Rizz (of Vowws) crushed the edit, who I also worked with for the past three ‘Reigning Cement‘ videos.”

Puciato added:

“My whole life I’ve heard people say that ‘all DEP is is screaming over noise.’ So when it came time to actually scream over noise I felt right at home.”
