Dillinger Escape Plan Issue Update

by | Jan 5, 2010

Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan recently checked in with a update on the band’s current happenings. Puciato commented:

“Since the last checkpoint, we finished recording our new album “Option Paralysis”, played a bunch of killer shows with Thursday, Fake Problems, and Endless Hallway, and then capped off the decade with two exceptional shows with our buddies Gogol Bordello, Glassjaw, Thursday, and United Nations. 2010 is gonna be a really big one for us. There’s no better way for us to start a decade then by releasing a new album in the first quarter(March 23) of the first year, and then by touring and playing everywhere that this big spinning rock will have us. Hopefully we’ll manage to avoid self destructing by 2011, cause as I’m sure you guys can tell we always have our finger hovering around the red button no matter how long we’re around. It’s the only way we know how to roll. Full speed or die. This shit ain’t fun when it’s safe, folks. Safety and comfort is boring, and leads to even more boring art. What I’m trying to tell you guys is to SABOTAGE YOUR LIFE NOW WHILE YOU CAN BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!! What I’m really trying to say is that things in The Dillinger Escape Plan are unbelievably great right now. We’re about to unleash what we and a lot of close longtime critical eared friends around us all feel is our best album to date, and we’re all healthy and playing furious shows lately, so lets embrace it all while it’s here ’cause given our track record who the hell knows how fast and how long we can keep the train runnin’ this time. Lets all kick ass and make 2010 the best it can be and try to start strong, and finish even stronger than we began it. We’re ready to do our part.”

“Our tourdates on the front page are about to get…oh…I dunno, around a hundred dates longer, so keep an eye out for that, cause chances are unless you live in Yemen or on a mountaintop in Tibet we’ll be heading your way this year. Only two months and some change left until our new album comes out, and we can’t wait. Presales will start soon, with all kinds of options(enough to paralyze you…we’re punbelievable OH!!!!) including a completely one of a kind box set that makes the Hellraiser box look like a happy meal box(I hear they’re bagged now? what a crime), and ruined the lives and crushed the souls of everyone we had working on it to try to make it a reality. Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all have a good one. Become a better version of you. Talk to you sooner than later…”
