The versatility of the acclaimed frontman roams free once more.
Continuing his ever-growing range of musical talent, Greg Puciato has set a date for the arrival of his debut full-length Child Soldier: Creator of God. Arriving on October 23rd, the dynamic 15-track outing finds Puciato singing and performing on all instruments, minus the drums, of which were taken on by Ben Koller (CONVERGE, MUTOID MAN), Chris Pennie (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN) and Chris Hornbrook (POISON THE WELL). Sonically, Child Soldier: Creator of God is a varied beast that puts Puciato's versatility at the forefront, harnessing the rawness of DILLINGER with the vocal elegance of BLACK QUEEN weaved within.
Puciato comments on the record:
“I’d been writing for so many different projects, Dillinger, then The Black Queen, and Killer Be Killed...and I just kept on writing. 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.”
