Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan) premieres new solo track 'Never Wanted That'

Greg Puciato, most well-known for fronting The Dillinger Escape Plan, has shared the second single from his forthcoming album, Mirrorcell (due out July 1). New song "Never Wanted That" and its accompanying video are available below.

"This vid was a nice exercise in making do with what you have available to you, or the creative benefits of limitation," says Puciato of the Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera directed video. "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."

It's fine, but a little more AiC sounding than I think is necessary. The first single with Reba made total sense as a down the middle rock ballad but this track makes me wonder what's going on with this album. Greg's first recording had some weirder tracks, and I hope there is some of that on this album too.

sadly..........no one f*cking cares+++++

bring back Dimitri !


anonymous 46 days ago

Oh, man. I saw Greg's face and read his name and thought he passed away too. Scared me for a second.


anonymous 46 days ago

this dude just tries far too hard. no one likes his music, hopefully he gets the message soon instead of wasting his time.


anonymous 46 days ago

I too never wanted this.


anonymous 46 days ago

I saw Greg at cvs getting his ninth booster wearing a fro mags shirt he said he hasn't heard from Ben in years and that Ben was trans now


anonymous 46 days ago

Greg was amazing in Dillinger. He is not good in anything else.


anonymous 46 days ago

greg was the downfall of dillinger, its not up for debate.


Xander 46 days ago

For a second I thought he died with the way the headline was written. Gladly he is not


anonymous 46 days ago

Dimitri was good but Greg was great and they were better and more popular than ever from miss machine on


anonymous 46 days ago

I'm kind of surprised that Greg hasn't become a full-time porn star like Evan Seinfeld.


anonymous 46 days ago

anonymous 19 minutes ago Dimitri was good but Greg was great and they were better and more popular than ever from miss machine on let everyone know you're a pussy with out saying "i'm a pussy"


anonymous 46 days ago

Even Dimitri said Greg was the better vocalist in Dillinger.


anonymous 46 days ago

Booooooooooooooooooooringggg.


anonymous 45 days ago

I wish Dillinger changed their name after he joined. They turned into a band that influenced legions of Hot Topic employees to start kooky metalcore bands that plagued this planet, and now plague our planet again for some awful reason.


anonymous 45 days ago

They had nothing to do with that. Come on


anonymous 45 days ago

Pretty homogenous


anonymous 45 days ago

Everyone who thinks Greg is a better vocalist than Dimitri are the same people who love Avenged Sevenfold and Motionless in White


anonymous 45 days ago

Got worried when I saw his photo, glad he's still alive.


anonymous 45 days ago

I am seconding that Greg was better for DEP than Dimitri. DEP would have never achieved what they did with Dimitri at the helm.


anonymous 45 days ago

And I hate Avenged Sevenfold and Motionless, so eat that dick, son.


anonymous 45 days ago

To those who are under the wrong opinion that Dimitri is better.... do your parents know you're trans?


anonymous 45 days ago

Aptly named song.


anonymous 45 days ago

how on earth was Dmitri better? because he just did one note monotone bellowing over and over again? Dmitri would have made that band a 2 or 3 album band at BEST if he stayed. Greg not only did Dmitri's stuff better but they did their best work with him. f*cking morons.


anonymous 45 days ago

calculating infinity was a good song. not sure about this mike patton stuff though it kinda sucks. hope they find a good vocalist soon


anonymous 45 days ago

I like old Dillinger better, but Greg definitely the better vocalist no doubt and took the band farther. I still liked them with Greg. But old Dillinger wins


anonymous 45 days ago

This guys as cuck. Cuckle doodle dooo


anonymous 45 days ago

Even the Mike Patton ep was good. Can understand why most don't care for it but its good


anonymous 45 days ago

The people who prefer Greg are the type of people who prefer Norma Jean after Josh left. And remember, you can't take those people seriously


anonymous 45 days ago

What happened to all the registards?


anonymous 45 days ago

Dillimger reunion is needed!!


anonymous 45 days ago

f*ck Sunny hate5six. All you do is point a camera you whiny ass pussy. You aren't a director. And your pontificating is annoying as f*ck

Dillinger Escape Plan: Most overrated NJ band ever.


anonymous 45 days ago

40 year olds w nose rings are stoked


anonymous 45 days ago

^ gets cucked by minorities and hates it.


anonymous 45 days ago

Thank God the people in Buffalo were vaxxed and boosted it could have been so much worse


anonymous 45 days ago

^ hope you see your parents die.


anonymous 45 days ago

This is actually good, i will listen to it on spotify.


anonymous 45 days ago

Is he still laying pipe to that C-List porn actress or she dumped him?


anonymous 45 days ago

NJ Bloodline was the worst NJ band in the history of NJ Bands. They make South Side Johnny look as genius as Ye.


anonymous 45 days ago

I'm kind of surprised that Greg hasn't become a full-time porn star like Evan Seinfeld. Would pay good money to see Greg being dominated...


anonymous 45 days ago

> NJ Bloodline was the worst NJ band in the history of NJ Bands. They make South Side Johnny look as genius as Ye.... f*ck you. shut your f*cking mouth. 'Take It Inside' is a great track


anonymous 45 days ago

Trash as always. This clown has needs to go home, no one gives a f*ck


anonymous 45 days ago

I wish Dillinger changed their name after he joined. They turned into a band that influenced legions of Hot Topic employees to start kooky metalcore bands that plagued this planet, and now plague our planet again for some awful reason. Dillinger didn't influence shit. No one under 30 even knows the name anymore. Good riddance.


anonymous 44 days ago

I jacked it to his gf more than a few times in my life


anonymous 44 days ago

How any self-respecting male can look at themselves in the mirror while dating a porn star is beyond my comprehension. You're literally kissing a chick who tongues random dudes butt-holes. Cuck Puciato.


anonymous 44 days ago

I heard he's bi.


anonymous 44 days ago

I don't hate it. Oh and Dillinger Escape Plan might go down, along with Converge, as one of the MOST OVERRATED bands of all time.


anonymous 44 days ago

Anyone got some NJ hardcore scene gossip? I'll go first… I heard about a Gangs of New York (movie) style brawl that was gonna go down at the Dillinger benefit show at the Manville Elks Lodge - the meatheads/thugs ie. Stickman/E-Town/FTLO/NJ Bloodline vs. Mouthpiece/Floorpunch/etc. In the end, whatever beef was squashed.


anonymous 44 days ago

Greg Cuckiato


anonymous 44 days ago

When wasn't there "beef" in Jersey? Fat Pat getting lumped up at a backyard show with E-Town, FTLO, and a few others. The vegan sxe kids vs. everyone else. Too much drama to keep up with.


anonymous 44 days ago

anonymous 16 hours ago I heard he's bi. permalink | report abuse He sure sounds like it when he sings.


anonymous 43 days ago

Dino here, you all have to stop calling Jenna Haze a C-list porn star. She is at worst a B-list. She is no Natasha Nice, but who is?


anonymous 43 days ago

he sounds like whitfield crane singing over AIC songs. not bad, but not there yet


anonymous 43 days ago

To those who are under the wrong opinion that Dimitri is better.... do your parents know you're trans? it sure beats sucking D*ck, just to pay my internet bill. -tough guy.
