NJ’s leading sons of math-riddled punk metal, Dillinger Escape Plan, including founding member and guitarist Ben Weinman, have issued a new statement regarding the forthcoming full-length, as the band wraps up writing and pre-production. Producer Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, Deadguy, Lifetime) will once again be turning knobs behind the board with recording scheduled to start in November.
“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 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] 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.”
We caught up with Dillinger Escape Plan bass guitarist Liam Wilson for an exclusive interview last November, be sure to check it out if you missed it.
