Greg Puciato(The Dillinger Escape Plan, Kill or Be Killed, The Black Queen) has released his debut solo album, 11/11/22 Los Angeles, exclusively via Bandcamp, with pre-orders for the vinyl version of the 11-song album available. Puciato has also shared an additional video from the performance, “Lowered”, featuring guest vocalist Reba Meyers of Code Orange. A video for “Deep Set”, which was also directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera, arrived last week
Of the Don Quixote show on the album, Puciato says:
You don’t get many first shows. Having the ability to properly document one and get high quality audio and video…I didn’t wanna regret not doing that. It’s gonna be killer to look back at this 100 or even five shows from now and see how much further along the live versions of these songs are. When I hear these recordings, I instantly feel transported to that room, that night, with my bandmates onstage and friends and everyone there in attendance. A lot of love and support and passion and hard work and talent in the room. I hope it does the same for you if you were there, and resonates as strongly for people who weren’t able to attend. I can’t wait to do more of this and see everyone again and more of you in other places down the line.
11/11/22 Los Angeles is available on a number of limited (250 copies) vinyl variants: neon green splatter on clear, blood red over electric blue, neon magenta over milky clear, opaque black on clear with neon orange platter, and black splatter on transparent blood red. The album will arrive on additional streaming services following its vinyl release in the Spring.
Joining Puciato and Meyers for the live performance are Nick Rowe (guitar), Chris Hornbrook (drums), James Hammontree (guitar), and Jeff “Manwolf” Geiser (bass).
