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 On The Possibility Of The Dillinger Escape Plan Returning One Day: “At Some Point Five Or Six Years From Now, Maybe There Will Be Room In All Our Lives Where This Thing Can Live”

During a recent interview with Revolver, Greg Puciato talked a bit about his former band The Dillinger Escape Plan. While discussing a possible reunion, the frontman said “at some point five or six years from now, maybe there will be room in all [their] lives where this thing can live.” However, he went on to say that the “time does not exist right now.”

Puciato said the following when asked if he missed anything about The Dillinger Escape Plan:

“I don’t miss the expectation that you have to make a record and go on tour for two or three years. It’s like a time warp, dude. You make a record when you’re 30, and when you finish touring it, you’re 33. But you didn’t grow — you only played a bunch of shows.

So you end up becoming psychologically trapped at age 24 when you’re really 38 because all your life has been in this bubble with these other people who are trapped in there with you and no one’s able to grow outside of the bubble.

No matter who I meet from other bands, that’s what happens. You only grow as a person when you’re not on tour or in the studio, and that’s not that much time. You’re trying to cram all this growth into the four months you’re home, and it’s unrealistic.

You meet other people your age who have had all this life experience and all you’ve done is play ‘Panasonic Youth‘ 2,000 times. [Laughs] You have all these sick memories, but it’s a different reality. So I feel like we’ve all grown more in the last two years than we have in the previous 10.

But I do miss the intensity of the shows, when we were all in synch and we could all objectively say, ‘That was sick.’ And there weren’t that many of them that all of us would say that about. But I don’t miss being in an active band that takes up 200 percent of my life.

And I don’t miss the expectation of, ‘This is your full time thing, and everything else is a side project.’ Because right now, nothing’s a side project and nothing’s a full-time thing. So when the inevitable question comes up, ‘Would you guys ever get back together?’ the first thing I say is, ‘If you knew me, you wouldn’t ask that.’”

He also added:

“But the other answer is: If it were to happen, it would be in such a drastically different context than what a fan would be thinking of. It wouldn’t be about turning a full-time thing on and off.

At some point five or six years from now, maybe there will be room in all our lives where this thing can live and we can all be happy with where it’s living, but that time does not exist right now.

I’d never make one thing the main thing for me ever again. What’s exciting to me now is not doing the same thing over and over again. I want to see how I can grow and learn and make myself uncomfortable.”
