THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Frontman Issues Update On MAX CAVALERA Collaboration

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN frontman Greg Puciato and Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, SEPULTURA) recently took part in another songwriting session for their collaborative album in Cavalera's home base in Phoenix, Arizona.

Puciato, who returned home with a demo CD of four tracks, wrote on his Facebook page over the weekend, "[We were] demoing heavy music the best way possibleat blistering volumes, no headphones, guitars and mics everywhere, all plugged in at all times, sweating and uncomfortable like we're fifteen in a garage again. Maybe haven't heard Max sound this pissed since [SEPULTURA's] 'Chaos A.D.'"

In a recent interview with Sweden's Metalshrine, Max stated about his collaboration with Puciato, "Greg loves NAILBOMB and he's trying to get me to do a NAILBOMB kind of project. He's saying we can do something very similar to NAILBOMB where the both of us sing, like me and Alex [Newport of FUDGE TUNNEL did in NAILBOMB] and what we had and it will be what me and Greg have. We're gonna share the vocals and I think the drummer from MARS VOLTA might be the drummer and the bass player from CONVERGE might be playing bass and we're looking for a guitar player right now. But it's gonna be like a project, not a band like CAVALERA CONSPIRACY or SOULFLY. It's gonna be just a one-off album, something heavy to put out there. Something that me and Greg like to do. I had a great experience with him working on 'Rise Of The Fallen' [song from the latest SOULFLY album] and we became good friends and he started calling me about this 'NAILBOMB part 2' idea and I couldn't say no. I just thought it would be great and I'm really looking forward to it. I'd like to do as much music as possible, so he came with a new project for me."

Puciato joined SOULFLY on stage at the 14th annual "D-Low Memorial" on August 28, 2010 at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Arizona to perform the song "Rise Of The Fallen". Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be viewed below.
