Dillinger Escape Plan Cover Of Soundgarden's "Jesus Christ Pose" Posted Online

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.

their cover of NIN should be extremely interesting.


good production would help, of course. anything like their last albums would indeed do quite well.
