The Dillinger Escape Plan has confirmed that Stolen Babies drummer, Gil Sharone will be playing on their new album. This was confirmed in an update on the bands site and is as follows:

"Know that what we are in the process of recording will be everything we have ever been capable of, and now more. This last year, and how we have gotten through it and to the place we are now, will define all of our lives for a long time. You will hear it in the music and words when you hear this album, and when you see us play live you will see the newfound energy that we now have from making it through all this together. Some of you are new, some of you have been with us for a long time. Regardless, we have a long way left to go, and the thing that we share together besides the music is making it through obstacles in our lives. We have overcome everything from multiple member changes in the early years, members suffering physical impairment or injury that has made it impossible to continue playing, and financial, physical, personal, and internal problems that many bands would never make it through. We take forever to put out records, and put everything we have into them. This band goes beyond just writing music and lyrics for us, it exists in every aspect of our lives 24 hours a day, and everything we experience and go through ends up going into this band in some way. When we see familiar faces on tour, we know that in the time since we have seen you last, you have had to deal with a lot in your own life just to get there again. Life is not easy, but it is the overcoming of obstacles and the amount of fight we have inside of us that will define us. We are going through all this together in some way or another. Please welcome this new time for us. The past was great, but the future will be greater I promise, if every day we didn’t know for a fact that it would be, we wouldn’t continue. We love you all for sticking though us through all of this. You’ll hear it and see us soon.

The album is called ‘Ire Works‘ and is being produced by Steve Evetts for a fall release. Recording members of The Dillinger Escape Plan are now:

Ben Weinman
Liam Wilson
Greg Puciato
Gil Sharone“

That WAS really difficult to read.
I suspect they're sleep deprived and neck deep in the recording process (possibly in Alaska?). The drum performance and how they manage their second guitar sound will mean absolutely everything to this next record.

yea they string together thoughts in a sentence, like their notes on a page: random, and complex. Much like their music. They suck now. But agreed: this is a pivotal album for them. I don't expect much.
