The DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN was formed in March ’97 in North New Jersey by guitarist Ben Weinman, bassist Adam Doll, and drummer Chris Pennie. Armed only with a simple desire to correct the musical misdeeds of their former bands, the trio added vocalist Dimitri Minakakis (who left the band and was replaced by Puciato in 2002) and set about writing material with the aim of pleasing their harshest critics: themselves.

A creation merging new-school hardcore, progressive metal, and free-jazz, the furious din of The DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN is the perfect embodiment of intensity, cathartic rage, urgency, and forward thinking. Given their abilities and relative youth, it’s not out of the question to believe that something this intricate and focused could develop into a paradigm to be followed, a yardstick by which other bands are measured.

Since their inception, the band¹s uncompromising mix of brutal precision, febrile imagination and frankly unsafe time signature changes, have made
them one of the most exciting and challenging acts in rock around, with fans in high places including Mike Patton and System of a Down.

Having built a reputation for fearsome, not to mention “memorable”, performances ­ DILLINGER have again upped the ante on their recent 8 week US tour where they continue to set the precedent in their performance, as well as selling out venues across the US with THE LOCUST in tow.
