Artists and Bands

The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato offers up one of the most interesting and truthful interviews to ever hit The Rock and Roll Report. Really.

The Dillinger Escape Plan has been wreaking havoc on the music scene since 1997, which is a lot longer than most bands could (or should) persevere. Heck, they’ve been active longer than The Beatles.

Longevity is never without its ups and down however and DEP has certainly experienced its fair share; from numerous lineup changes to, most recently, label drama. But thanks to their ever-evolving nature and standout extremism, the band has proven that they really are unstoppable. March saw the release of their fourth full-length studio album, Option Paralysis, which is (arguably, I suppose) their best record to date.

In June, DEP hit the road as part of this year’s Vans Warped Tour and, following their Montreal date, singer Greg Puciato took time to talk about his personal attachment to Option Paralysis, on-stage injuries, and oh so much more.

Q: You’re currently on the Warped Tour, how’s it been treating you so far?

A: It’s been great. Anyone that complains on any tour when they make their living playing rock n’ roll is an asshole, so the only acceptable answer to this question EVER is “great.”
