The Dillinger Escape Plan welcomes new guitarist

Posted by on June 20, 2015

The Dillinger Escape Plan are notorious for their lineup changes, so much that there is an entire Wikipedia page just for the multitude of members that they have had. With that in mind, it probably comes as no surprise to anyone that they have recently revealed the newest member of the band (right now): Kevin Antreassian.


So we’ve got this dude Kevin playing stage left guitar with us. We’re a hard bunch, and he’s hanging in there so far,…

A lot of people may be wondering just where the hell this mysterious bearded man came from but he’s actually got quite the resume. Antreassian is a former member of New Jersey progressive metal bands Knife the Glitter and Mothership, who had previously opened for The Dillinger Escape Plan. If neither of those sound familiar, its probably because Antreassian spends most of his time behind the scenes with his recording studio/rehearsal space Backroom Studios in Rockaway, New Jersey.

He first appeared on stage with Dillinger on May 15 for the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio and has been present for every date since. Whether we can expect Antreassian’s name to appear on the previously mentioned Wikipedia page, no one is entirely sure but for now, we can count on him for all of Dillinger’s upcoming tour dates, which are listed below.
