Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan) Recruited Poison The Well & Converge Members To Drum On His New Album

During an interview with Kerrang!, Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, etc.) talked a bit about his upcoming solo album “Child Soldier: Creator Of God.“ The frontman recruited a number of people to record drums on the effort including: producer Nick Rowe, his ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan bandmate Chris Pennie, Poison The Well’s Chris Hornbrook, and Converge’s Ben Koller.

Puciato said the following about the recording process, most of which he did himself:

“Everything except for the drums. Some of it is electronic and doesn’t have drums – in which case I’ve programmed them or had Nick Rowe help me. But I’ve known Chris Hornbrook since we were 23. He knows how to hit a drum. For a lot of the songs on this record, I knew he was the guy. And then Ben Koller – who drums in Killer Be Killed, Converge and All Pigs Must Die – is on a track. Chris Pennie, the original Dillinger drummer, is on a track, too. He’s also done some orchestration and additional instrumentation on a few tracks as well.”

He also talked about the lyrics:

“…This record is post-Black Queen, but it’s hard to tell. When I read these lyrics they do feel a little bit like Dillinger, but they also feel like Black Queen, too. Those two bands are almost like two different aspects of my personality.

I think this record has merged them in a way that they don’t feel like either band, but they do have hints of both. There are songs that sound like nothing people have ever heard me do. And that’s saying a lot, because Dillinger did a lot of different stuff.

But the whole record is sort of celebrating integration, which is something I had a really hard time with in the past, and celebrating owning every aspect of your personality. There’s a lot of newness on this record. It’s not Black Queen meets Dillinger.”

In other news, Puciato also talked a bit about Killer Be Killed’s next album:

“We’ve done a lot, man (laughs). That’s its own thing, and I don’t want to muddy the waters, because we’ve all made a pact that none of us are going to be the person who fucks up and says more than we should say. I will tell you this: it’s not done. And until a record is done, it’s like counting the cheque before it’s cashed.

All of us have been burned by this before. We are significantly further along than we were back then. But we’ve definitely said we’re not going to make any claims as to when it’ll come out or when it’s gonna be done.”

Chris Hornbrook Exits Senses Fail

Drummer Chris Hornbrook has exited Senses Fail. He issued the following statement:

“So after close to three and a half years of working with Senses Fail my time has came to move on with the next chapter in my life. I’m very grateful for the time spent with band and crew traveling the world and playing music. I’ve gain a lot of insight touring with SF that I’ve realized recently reflecting back is pretty paramount. Anyway, I want to thank Buddy and company for everything and wish them the best of luck with finding a new drummer. I’m sure whomever they get will kick ass. ❤️”
