The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato: “Ironically, I Think Singers Ruin Songs 90 Percent Of The Time”
In a discussion about the groups forthcoming new studio album and more, The Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato candidly revealed that he isn’t the biggest fan of vocals in music. He had the following to say to ARTISTdirect.com on what has been inspiring him lately, seemingly with his tongue firmly in his cheek:
“…I like to write lyrics to weird abstract instrumental music so the vocals don’t get that way. I’ll put on some weird trance-y, ambient noise type thing and let it roll for hours. I’ll write imaginary lyrics to that while it’s playing.
That kind of music tends to put your brain in a trance unencumbered by some guy yelling at you or trying to tell you what the song is about. Ironically, I think singers ruin songs 90 percent of the time [Laughs].
They sing inappropriately over parts, feel like they’ve got to be everywhere all the time, and they’re always late! They’re unreliable. I’m aware of how much we suck [Laughs].”
A new studio album from The Dillinger Escape Plan is expected to receive a release later this year on Sumerian Records.
