THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have posted the following update:
"Because there have been numerous people wondering what the fuck is going on, and because we haven't said anything yet, I feel as though we need to address what people who have been to the last two shows already know. Ben Weinman had to fly home the morning of August 4th to deal with some personal issues, and could not play the final four shows of this tour. Ben has played through injuries too numerous to count, and severe enough that most people wouldn't have even gotten out of bed, let alone play intense and physically demanding shows. He has played through sickness and ignored family emergencies to never ever miss a show, so when he tells me that he has to go home I know that he has to go home. So just a heads up, tonight and tomorrow night, he will not be there, but in the word's of Chris Farley in Billy Madison, "you can imagine what it would be like if he were." Except Farley was talking about banging Billy Madison's hot teacher and we're talking about a dude running around onstage like a pissed off rabid chimpanzee."
The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, The Black Dahlia Murder, Fear Before The March Of Flames, Daughters and many more will be appearing at this years "Dirt Fest", which will take place on August 19th in Birch Run, MI. More details on that can be found at www.dirtfest.com.
The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced that following the completion of their current touring schedule, they plan to disappear and finish writing new material for their next album which will likely see a release next year. More on that can be found here. In addition, if you've yet to hear it, you can check out the bands cover of Massive Attack's "Angel" online here. The track was taken from the groups recently released iTunes only EP, "Plagiarism".
The drummers from Lamb Of God, Shadows Fall, Candiria, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Killswitch Engage, Unearth, As I Lay Dying and more will all be featured on the upcoming third installment of the "Drum Nation" series. Dubbed "Drum Nation Volume 3", The effort will see a release on August 15th through Magna Carta and along with audio, will also feature various off-color video footage from the participants. More on it can be found here.
New Jersey-bred maniacal metallers DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have posted their cover of SOUNDGARDEN's classic "Jesus Christ Pose" on their official MySpace page. The track comes off the band's upcoming iTunes-exclusive digital download EP, "Plagiarism", due on June 13.
Commented the band: "SOUNDGARDEN, man. I'm talking about glory days glass shattering Chris Cornell, not this easy listening slop he's got going on now. Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron, Chris Cornell, Ben Shepherd.... whew! Remember that shit?! That time period was the jam. Shit like that is hard to find now. Anyhow, this is our little homage if you will to a great band from a great time that was influential to all of us."
Other tracks featured on the EP include new versions of DILLINGER classics "Unretrofied" (radio edit) and "The Perfect Design" (live), plus "Wish" (NINE INCH NAILS), "Angel" (MASSIVE ATTACK), and "Like I Love You" (JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE), all recorded and mixed by guitarist Benjamin Weinman on his laptop in his bedroom.
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN are currently writing material for the group's fourth studio LP, the follow-up to 2004's "Miss Machine". The writing process has been stymied, as Weinman's been sidelined for several months due to surgery on his arm. The band are also preparing for the release of their "Miss Machine" DVD. The disc will reportedly contain all "Miss Machine"-related material, including all the music videos made for the record, behind-the-scenes footage and a live video from the "Miss Machine" touring cycle.
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN will will be supporting AFI during their inaugural North American tour for their new record beginning on June 13 in Montreal, Quebec. This summer tour will also include NIGHTMARE OF YOU and be making stops in major cities across the country. In addition to their dates with AFI, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN will be doing several headlining shows with label mates DYSRHYTHMIA in tow.
A beef between Avenged Sevenfoldand the Dillinger Escape Plan is taking shape. According to Dillinger's MySpace page, a feud had been festering for several months when Avenged frontman M. Shadows turned up the heat during a recent interview, saying Dillinger "make sh---y noises and try to pass it off as music." "What about bands that make sh---y noise and try to pass it off as Guns N' Roses?" a Dillinger MySpace post read in response. "This guy and his merry band of musical clowns get more hilarious by the minute. M. Shadows' real name is Matt Sanders or some sh--." With that in mind, Dillinger say they've decided to change their stage names in derision. "So, in his honor, our new names are officially as follows: G. Piranha, Blaster Master Weinman, Bullwhip Benoit, Corpsef---er Pennie [and] Leafeater Wilson. Those are going to be the names on our new CD — 100 percent serious."
Dillinger Escape Plan will issue an iTunes-exclusive EP on June 13. The release will feature new versions of "Unretrofied" and "The Perfect Design," along with four covers: Nine Inch Nails' "Wish," Massive Attack's "Angel," Soundgarden's "Jesus Christ Pose" and Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You."

Think heavy metal started with KORN? Confused about why people smash into each other at a concert? Know who originally spawned the sign of Satan? Well ask yourselves these questions no more. Fuse TV's "Uranium" is bringing you all of the answers to the questions you're too afraid to ask.
