Quick Bits: DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN teaser, DOWN tour dates, New band featuring Vinnie Paul and much more...
> DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have posted the following teaser for their upcoming album. As we previously reported, guitarist Ben Weinman was quoted as saying "This record will molest you"
> GENGHIS TRON have announced a full U.S. tour with KYLESA from March 8th to April 12th. Venues and other details will be announced shortly.
> CLUTCH have announced their first set of tour dates in anticipation for their upcoming release "From Beale Street to Oblivion."
> SHAT, which in my opinion has the best name in music, has announced a slew of new dates on their Myspace page.
> BYZANTINE has set Oblivion Beckons as the title of their third full-length, tentatively due out in July through Prosthetic Records. The disc will contain 12 brand new tracks and will also contain complete note-for-note guitar transcriptions, in both standard musical notation and guitar tablature notation. "We had such a great response from the tablature on the last album, we decided to keep that level of expectation high upon us and tab this album out as well," explains vocalist/guitarist Chris "OJ" Ojeda. "Nothing less for our true fans and friends."
> DOWN have posted dates on their official MySpace page for their upcoming tour where they are expected to be opening for HEAVEN AND HELL, the band featuring Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler.
> Venues for the previously announced Jagermeister Music Tour which will feature STONE SOUR, LACUNA COIL, and SHADOWS FALL have been released. Full dates after the jump…
