“It sounds huge, and is about as welcome a return as anyone could have hoped.” Rock Sound
“Option Paralysis is a product of modern living, of anxiety, it is a work of contemporary friction from some of the most cranky, snotty, intelligent upstarts in the business” Terrorizer
“Dillinger Escape Plan are one of the best bands in the world’ The Line of Best Fit
“they're still the fittest butcher's dogs in the murky world of mathematical metal.” The Quietus
“A war of emotion rendered in it’s most extreme tones and is more rewarding on every listen” Rock Sound
“a visceral ride…” Mojo
“No easy routes, no compromises and nothing short of brilliant” NME
Having just played a totally mind blowing set at this year’s Download festival, DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN (Ben Weinman – guitar, Greg Puciato - vocals, Liam Wilson - bass, Jeff Tuttle – guitar and Billy Rymer – drums) have confirmed their first UK tour in years for October/ November 2010. the dates will see the band head across the country including a headline show at London’s Electric Ballroom on 5th November. Support on the tour comes from Rolo Tomassi.
The follow-up to 2007’s Ire Works, OPTION PARALYSIS was released earlier this year to considerable acclaim. It IS the beginning of another trajectory in the DEP mythology. Produced by Steve Evetts, Dillinger’s new music is positively abundant with possibilities. Drummer Billy Rymer, whom Weinman describes as “young and hungry,” now occupies the engine room that powers the band. Frontman, Puciato has always had a knack with a bellow that could make reciting a grocery list seem like an exhortation to open the mouth of Hell.
While there’s no shortage of DEP plasma-balls on Paralysis (“Room Full Of Eyes,” “Good Neighbor”), the band keep things fresh with the math-rock/free-jazz convergence of “I Wouldn’t If You Didn’t,” the electro-tweaked “Chinese Whispers” and the closing “Parasitic Twins.” The latter track sports lead vocals courtesy of guitarist Tuttle, as well as Beach Boys-styled harmonies and a major-key Weinman solo that’s more Clapton (ca. Derek And The Dominos) than calculus crush. Clearly, this is not your older brother’s Dillinger Escape Plan.
