DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN drop off SUICIDE SILENCE tour; to start recording new material
Oh noes…The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced that they had to drop off their upcoming tour with Suicide Silence. A post on their MySpace page reads:
Some of you may have seen October tour dates posted for a tour we were to take part in. Due to circumstances beyond our control(no we're not breaking up so don't believe anything that might start floating around on the internet) we will not be taking part in that tour. We wish every other band on the tour well, and hope that it is a great success for them and for the people behind the scenes working hard to make it a great tour.
e have a lot of exciting things happening. The best of which is writing for the next album, which we'll record sometime next year. We have a good amount of ideas in the initial testing stages, and we're about to really dive in. We also have a DVD of early years Dillinger in the works for all you old heads or people interested in a history lesson.
After a little bit of investigative journalism, we can report that the reason the band had to drop off is because drummer Gil Sharone's other band Stolen Babies just announced a slew of gigs in October which I'm assuming took precedence. The entire blog post is worth a read. In related news, we just reuploaded the band's entire January 2005 performance at the Virgin Megastore. Definitely worth a watch. Also worth the watch, is their latest video diary:
