Greg Puciato (The Black Queen/ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan) has released his first book, ‘Separate The Dawn‘. It compiles photos, free writing, poetry and more that he created during the final days of The Dillinger Escape Plan back in September 2016 through to December 2017. Speaking of the project previously with Revolver, Puciato stated:
“Around the time of the last Dillinger album, I just couldn’t stop writing. I found myself staying in kind of the same vein of topics and things I was dealing with on ‘Dissociation‘, but without having a record to write that was thematically appropriate to put it in.
It wasn’t for a product, it was for me. So I kept doing it to get this stuff out of me, and I knew it wasn’t going to be appropriate for Black Queen, but I didn’t know what I was doing it for. I was doing it on tour, I was doing it in the notepad of my phone constantly, and a lot of it wasn’t just poems and things like that.
A lot of it was journal entries very literally describing what was happening and going on around me, not with the band so much, but with me, internally. I was going through a lot at the same time internally that had nothing to do with the band. It was a really intense time for me and I just needed to get stuff out.”
