Jeff Tuttle leaves Dillinger Escape Plan

It looks like The Dillinger Escape Plan is down a guitarist. Jeff Tuttle announced he is leaving the band to attend film school and focus on other projects. Both he and the band released statements:

From the band:

Jeff Tuttle has been a valuable member of The Dillinger Escape Plan since the beginning of the Ire Works cycle. He started his time with us in mid 2006 in a period of turmoil, and his positivity and team player mentality, his enthusiasm, and his fire onstage, will always be appreciated and will never be forgotten. That being said, for now, as you will read, his future with us is uncertain, but whatever the future holds for our relationship with him, we love him and wish him well and success as a brother who has gone into battle with us for six years, and we hope he enjoys and finds creative fulfillment in film school and his future endeavors. Check out his other bands, and read his official statement below.

From Tuttle:

To the fans of Dillinger, and to the multitude of people I’ve met, kicked, guitar-smashed, face riffed, or otherwise touched, I’m writing this to formally announce that as of today I will be taking my departure from The Dillinger Escape Plan. The years I’ve spent with this band have been some of the greatest in my life. I’ve seen and done so many things I never thought possible and I will forever be grateful to these memories and to the band that made them possible. I’d like to thank everyone who has given me support and encouragement along the way and to express all the gratitude that fills my bones. Dillinger is a beast that cannot be contained and I have no doubts that the band will continue on the road of destruction. I wish them nothing but the best in the years to come.
Music is in my blood and I will continue making it with Old Gods and my solo effort, Malo Konjche. I will also be taking the opportunity to study film and film production in the fall; something I’ve been deeply passionate about for many years.
Life may lead me back to the Dillinger fold in the future, but for now I’ve decided to pursue these creative paths. The past six years have been amazing and I’m lucky to have made it out alive. I’ll never forget the time we shared on stage… the scars won’t let me.

The band has been working on a follow-up to their 2010 release “Option Paralysis.”



The Dillinger Escape Plan post an update on what’s next

The Dillinger Escape Plan have posted an update on their blog page saying that they have finished the last album “cycle” and are deciding what’s next for them. Here’s what they had to say:

“Don’t worry about us and our relative quiet compared to our normal presence. The creative process needs some detachment and isolation….we don’t feel the need….or want for that matter…to constantly update, or on the flip side to hear/read too much feedback…so like I said don’t think anything of it if it seems like long stretches of radio silence are going by on our various web outlets. When we fully emerge from our self imposed isolation we’ll be carrying a big assed pitcher of juice from the tree of eternal life that’s hidden deep in the forbidden jungle, and you’ll all be like “shit yeah thats what’s up gimmesummadat”.”

Of course, the last album we’re referring to is Option Paralysis, which came out two years ago. The rest of the blog can be read here.

Meanwhile, The Dillinger Escape Plan have been pretty busy writing and recording a new album, which will likely be released later this year.

Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan) has epic psychadelic freakout

Apparently Greg Puciato isn’t old enough to have lived through Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” disaster campaign in the 1980s.

It seems the Dillinger Escape Plan frontman took a few too many “magic mushrooms” recently and proceeded to embark on a psychadelic freakout of epic proportions. Like “someone call 911” epic. Here’s what happened in Puciato’s own words…

I would like to thank the six police officers, fully staffed fire truck, and the several EMTs(thanks Brian Vanina for writing to me afterwards) that showed up over the weekend…to witness/enjoy what surely must have been a beyond hysterical/bizarre/confusing sight to them.Without going into too much detail…let me just say that it was ENTIRELY worthwhile to eat enough(way too much) of something(I won’t go into what but I’m sure your assumptions are probably accurate) to induce a total near death experience, have full blown entirely realistic hallucinations(including fake people that I had conversations with), have no ability to tell what time/age period of my life I was in(12, 17, 22, 29….all seemed simultaneous) and run around almost naked both in and outside singing, screaming, and asking the police if I was dead and whether or not Ben Weinman, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Liam, and various other people in my personal life, were in fact real people or part of a dream that I had while part of a separate larger reality. When I look back on being on a stretcher outside at 3am, frantically telling police that I was already dead and insisting that they tell me the truth, while accusing them of not being real either, and my girlfriend crying and being terrified that I had gone “too far” and would be permanently insane from that point forward…..it all seems obvious what you should tell kids about drugs. “Just say…maybe.”

The Dillinger Escape Plan’s last album was 2010’s “Option Paralysis.” They are currently writing and recording a new album, which hopefully doesn’t sound like Phish…

Dillinger Escape Plan writing new album

New Jersey mathcore band Dillinger Escape Plan have confirmed via Twitter that they are indeed beginning the process of putting out a brand new album. Singer Greg Puciato elaborated just a bit on the project’s status:

“Ben and Billy working on new DEP in the dressing room. After ten years it still makes my heartrate go up to hear new DEP ideas forming.”

“I know it’s time to write a new album when it feels like this. After “Option” I couldn’t even imagine writing anymore. So draining. Time now.”

“That said, we have no intention of writing a “better” Option Paralysis. We’re gonna unleash a whole ‘nother (sic) beast that lives on it’s own.”

Tour: The Dillinger Escape Plan hits the road with The Deftones

The Dillinger Escape Plan will be on tour this spring with The Deftones. I’d love to tell you how long the tour will be or even most of the cities it will visit, or really even if there are any other bands on the tour. But I can’t, because they haven’t really announced the tour yet. All we know so far is that these three dates have been announced. From the looks of that information (over a month apart, in Wisconsin and then on the East Coast) you can imply that there will be a larger, national or even international tour involved. But for now, it’s just speculation.

2010 was a big year for both bands, with The Deftones releasing Diamond Eyes and The Dillinger Escape Plan releasing Option Paralysis and headlining the Vans Warped Tour.
