DILLINGER ESCAPE PLANS eagerly awaited follow-up to successful album Ire Works (2007) which sold close to 8000 copies in the UK
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN are a paradoxical phenomenon: fusing the raw punkish attitude of Hardcore with the mathematical precision of Progressive Extreme Metal and the conscious liberty of Free Jazz, their complex song structures are hardly a recipe for easy listening. Yet in the thirteen years of their existence the New Jersey outfit rose from a hyper-complicated underground Thrash band to shooting stars selling hundred thousands of copies and playing before sold out venues. Intelligent music with mass appeal is a rare combination and now THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN are returning with their most accessible album so far. Again produced by Steve Evetts (The Cure, Sepultura) Option Paralysis features all their trademark furious breaks and asymmetric rhythmical patterns, but comes with an uncanny knack for catchy melodies. Adding Greg Puciatos deeply emotional vocals to Ben Weinmans groundbreaking guitar work, the Americans emerge with a vision, which will take them to new dimensions. THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN boldly go where no band dared going before.
