Greg Puciato, the longtime frontman of The Dillinger Escape Plan, has announced his first full-scale North American solo tour.
Since the breakup of The Dillinger Escape Plan in 2017, Puciato has remained quite busy, releasing two solo albums, along with new LPs from his bands The Black Queen and Killer Be Killed. He has also toured extensively as part of Jerry Cantrell’s backing band.
The solo outing kicks off May 3rd in Roseville, California, and runs through a June 7th show in Los Angeles. A Live Nation pre-sale for select dates begins either on Wednesday (March 22nd) or Thursday (March 23rd) at 10 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster using the code OPENER, with a general sale starting Friday.
Support on the trek will come from Escuela Grind (minus May 18th-27th), Deaf Club (featuring Justin Pearson of The Locust and Dead Cross), and Trace Amount.
“Gonna take a big ol’ North American road trip with some friends, booked some shows along the way to justify it to myself, and pay for gas,” said Puciato in a press release. “I’d love to see as many of you as possible, old fans and new, and everyone in between. Let’s make some memorable nights together. This is the first time I’ve gone on tour for the records that I started releasing under my own name back in 2020, and it’ll possibly be the only tour under my own name for the foreseeable future. Come on down!”
Puciato released his debut solo album, Child Soldier: Creator of God, in 2020, followed by his sophomore effort, Mirrorcell, in 2022.
During his run in The Dillinger Escape Plan, he was known for being one of the most dynamic live performers in heavy music, often beating up his body and engaging in death-defying stunts onstage.
