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. Miss Juliya, along with guest lecturers including GOD FORBID, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, DARKEST HOUR, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and more, school you on all things metal — from throwing down in the pit to the penalties for misusing the horns to how to tell the difference between death metal and pirate-core. Get ready to throw spitballs during the premiere on Friday, September 9 at 9:00 p.m. EST on Fuse.
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN will appear as special guests on the Fuse network's acclaimed program "Steven's Untitled Rock Show". The much-publicized quintet will be guests on the program's Wednesday, September 7 edition at 10:00 p.m. EST. The program will air again on Thursday, September 8 at 4:00 p.m.
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN are breaking new ground with the release of their latest music video, "Unretrofied". The hyper-advanced clip is taken from the band's forward-thinking release, "Miss Machine". The DILLINGER video was written and directed by Josh Graham (ENON, NO DOUBT, JURASSIC 5) and features the band "assembled as retro 'Westworld'-style robots."

Guitarist/producer extraordinaire James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY) has issued the following update:
"Hi everyone. I'm sorry for dropping out. I've been dealing with my grandmother's illness and passing. Several weeks ago she was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, quite large and inoperable. She has always been a major part of our family life and an 'anchor,' if you will, always there for me with a place to stay and a meal throughout the ups and downs of my career, not to mention her unconditional love.
"Dealing with the emotional side and logistics of always having at least one family member in the hospital with her... And now with the family handling all her final business... It's been overwhelming and ongoing. Her funeral was last week and I have begun to see the light of day again finally.
"Even with these issues I managed to get more recording for the DEATH tribute [album] done. On the day of my grandmother's funeral, after the services, I made the trip to Tampa to record the singer of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN... And only two days before (one day after she passed) I traveled to Orlando to record the bassist of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN. It was hard for me to focus but I couldn't lose the opportunity to have these two great musicians on 'Within The Mind'. Their performances for Chuck's [Schuldiner] memory transcend the difficult circumstances I recorded them under.
"I also want to take a moment to express my sadness about the passing of Piggy [of VOIVOD]. I have no words that haven't already been spoken more eloquently than I can manage at this moment. I was given the first two albums as a gift and when number three, 'Killing Technology', came out I was at the store the day it was released. Some months later I stood outside at Janis Landing in St. Petersburg to see the tour and buy the T-shirt. Piggy was, and is, an inspiration."
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have been forced to pull out of their remaining Gigantour live dates because of an injury to guitarist Ben Weinman. Weinman severely re-injured his arm Sunday night (having originally injured it several months ago) during the tour's stop in Atlantic City, NJ and was told by a specialist yesterday that he will be unable to perform until further notice.
Weinman commented, "We were enjoying playing every night as part of Gigantour, and to not be able to finish the tour is an enormous disappointment to us."
Gigantour is the traveling hard rock festival founded by MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine. Mustaine — who suffered a nearly career-ending arm injury several years ago — said, "We really respect and enjoyed THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN — and will miss them. Meanwhile, I personally hope that Ben has a successful and speedy recovery."
Dream Theater has announced on their website that the Montreal, Canada Gigantour concert at the Bell Centre on September 2nd will be filmed and recorded for an upcoming Gigantour DVD and Gigantour CD.
