Ben Weinman, guitarist of Dillinger Escape Plan has been quite the blogger, as he posted the following on the band's Myspace page:
Over the past year and a half, the most chaotic time of our career, many have speculated on our possible demise, including ourselves at times.
Now after everything, we have what we feel is easily the best album we have ever created, and the feeling in the air has never been more exciting.
We are proud to announce that "Ire Works" will be coming out on November 13th, and that we will be embarking on our first North American headlining tour since Dec 2005 in October. All dates will be posted as they are confirmed, some are up now. Support will come from A Life Once Lost, Genghis Tron, and Behold…The Arctopus.
More album updates, including tracklisting and maaaaaybe a new song in our player, tour dates, and video blogs, coming soon. Stay tuned. We're fucking back. A little something we like to call "kicking everyone's ass" is about to happen. Thank you all for waiting. Can't wait to see you all.
