Earlier in March, former Dillinger Escape Plan/current the Black Queen frontman Greg Puciato dropped his first solo song, “Fire for Water.” The intense, gnarly Nine Inch Nails-vibe cut backed up his desire to return to his aggressive side after DEP’s 2017 breakup and TBQ’s electro-rock digs. Today, he offers another dose — hear “Deep Set” and watch its accompanying eerie music video below.
Like the first single, Puciato played all of the instruments on the song with the exception of drums, which were done by Chris Hornbrook (Dhani Harrison, Poison the Well, Big Black Delta). “Deep Set” was produced by Nick Rowe (Vampire Weekend, Haim) and mixed by longtime collaborator Steve Evetts (the Dillinger Escape Plan, the Cure).
Both tracks offer up a peek into what the singer’s first-ever solo album, Child Soldier: Creator of God, might hold. It’s due later this summer via his own record label, Federal Prisoner —which was co-founded by fine artist Jesse Draxler, known in the heavy-music world for his work with Nine Inch Nails, Deafheaven, Chelsea Wolfe, Daughters, the Black Queen and more.
In addition, “Deep Set” is available both digitally and as a hyper-limited — 250 copies — 12-inch single. The label also has simultaneously unveiled a collection of exclusive limited-edition apparel available for 24 hours. Visit FederalPrisoner to snag some.
