The Dillinger Escape Plan will be entering the world of recording this week. The New Jersey mathcore legends will be buckling down with Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Poison The Well) at the mixing board.
Option Paralysis was the last time we heard from the band, well, Paralysing Effect to be more specific (the re-release of the album which dropped last year). The next instalment of their super-technical stylings has the pretty relaxed arrival date of sometime in 2013, according to Blabbermouth. This album will see the group working without rhythm guitarist Jeff Tuttle, who recently left the band.
Speaking on the release, guitarist Ben Weinman explained: “This new material is very punk, very hardcore-influenced. Maybe it’s all the amazing bands reuniting from my youth that is inspiring this. Billy [Rymer, drums] and I have just been listening to old hardcore records blasting through my house and then going down to the dungeon and just bashing. Greg [Puciato, vocals] also seems to be in a very dark place lyrically. I think it’s going to be pretty creepy. If these songs don’t put some holes in the wall, I don’t know what will.”
Speaking of which, we also know that Dillinger will be working with our very own Kimbra in one capacity or another, so stay tuned for that also.
