Greg Puciato (The Black Queen/Dillinger Escape Plan) Releases Debut Book, “Separate The Dawn,” on Feb. 12

Greg Puciato, singer and songwriter for The Black Queen and The Dillinger Escape Plan, releases his first book, “Separate The Dawn”, a collection of poetry and photography largely written and taken during The Dillinger Escape Plan’s final year and a half, on Feb. 12 via Federal Prisoner. This is the second release for the label/publishing house, following The Black Queen’s 2018 album, Infinite Games.

“This is the heaviest and most brutal, but ultimately positive and necessary piece, in a series of thematically connected output for me, during what I now see as a long transitional arc, of realization, processing, shedding, accepting, and then finally coming out of the other side into a different place. A walk through a broken mirror. Chronologically this goes after Dissociation, and before Infinite Games. It’s also a surprising and welcome reconnection with a medium that was my first creative love, even before music, and an equally surprising fascination with a new one. I guess it’s essentially my fist (and maybe only) solo release. Thanks to everyone who picks this up, for continuing to encourage me to keep creating with zero regard for parameters of gene or medium. Also, Lebron James is not greater than Michael Jordan,” says Puciato, who discusses his decision to publish his first book in an interview with Revolver (https://www.revolvermag.com/music/greg-puciato-new-book-separate-dawn).

A limited edition hardcover version is available now via federalprisoner.net with digital pre-orders available via Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MRHXK3K) and Apple (https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/separate-the-dawn/id1448322243?mt=11).
