Puciato said the following about releasing the album early:

“I got word yesterday that the record leaked, so at that point I just wanted people to be able to have it in a legit way; especially people who paid or are paying for it. Plus I’m happy to get it out there anyway, it’s sorta been burning a hole in my pocket anyway. The leak doesn’t bum me. Shit happens.”

He also added the following about the upcoming concert:

“This has been a long time coming. I wasn’t able to play any of my own stuff live around the release of the first album, because of covid, and the only shows I’ve played since then have been with Cantrell (I’m in Germany with that tour as we speak ). But ya know what? The timing feels right. So this is gonna be a special moment for me…first solo show ever. It’ll be one to remember.”

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan) Premieres “Never Wanted That” Music Video

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Queen, etc.) has premiered a new video for his new song “Never Wanted That.” This track is from his new album “Mirrorcell,” which will be released on July 1. Puciato commented:

“This vid was a nice exercise in making do with what you have available to you, or the creative benefits of limitation. We filmed this in Baltimore, which was special to me, at like 3 a.m., while on the Cantrell tour. It was really the only time I had. We did multiple whole takes and this was the one. Jim and Tony, as usual, did an excellent job. At one point you can see me fuck up the words. I had to learn so many Cantrell songs that I forgot my own goddamned lyrics.”

Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan) Premieres Music Video For New Song “Lowered” Featuring Reba Meyers (Code Orange)

“When [Reba] came to the studio, we had, like, zero vocals for that song. I had been a little unusually stuck with that one lyrically and as far as vocal phrasings and melodies,” Puciato explains. “Reba and I had such an explosion of musical and personal chemistry right away, and we ended up writing and recording all of the vocals in about six hours. It was one of the purest collaborations I’ve ever done, in terms of feeling, just really natural and explosive. She really blew me away overall. The combined energy was instant. That song turned into something really special because of that energy.”

01. “In This Hell You Find Yourself”
02 “Reality Spiral”
03. “No More Lives To Go”
04. “Never Wanted That”

Saudade (Team Sleep, Etc.) Share Video For New Song “Chill Of Death” Featuring A.A. Williams, The Late Lee “Scratch” Perry, Etc.

Saudade, the collective featuring Chuck Doom (Team Sleep) and Gil Sharone (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan), have premiered a new video for their new song “Chill Of Death.” This track features a number of collaborators including: John Medeski (Medeski, Martin & Wood), David Torn (Sun Of Goldfinger, David Bowie), Dr. Know (Bad Brains), A.A. Williams, and the late Lee “Scratch” Perry.

Doom commented:

“Literally minutes after hearing ‘Songs From Isolation‘ I was reaching out to A.A. Williams about collaborating on a Saudade track. Her musicianship and vocals really spoke to me. We connected and an early bounce of ‘Chill Of Death‘ was sent over to London. I was stoked A.A. replied that the song felt right and agreed to collaborate.

When A.A. sent me her vocal demo of ‘Chill Of Death‘ I was elated and kind of shocked at how beautifully she melodically and lyrically interpreted the music and the working title. The contribution to the song’s bridge by the GIANT musical force of nature Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry along with the talents of Dr. Know, John Medeski, David Torn, Gil, and RIZZ’s beautiful video makes this song special to me.”

Sharone continued:

“‘Chill Of Death‘ is a vibe. I was drawn in as soon as Chuck played me the rough sketch. Like all of the other tracks we do, this song came together in a very organic way. The grooves, dynamics and textures of sounds created a perfect bed for the amazing vocal performance that AA Williams put down. Having Dr. Know and Lee “Scratch” Perry contribute parts made it even more special.”

Williams added:

“I was delighted when Chuck approached me to work with the Saudade collective on ‘Chill Of Death.’ The group’s wide-ranging musical style really excited me and I was honored that they’d asked me to collaborate. The instrumental track I was initially sent was very inspiring so I found that the text and vocals came naturally, and later finding out that the late Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry would also be contributing made the process even more special.”
