The Dillinger Escape Plan are becoming very proficient on promoting their upcoming, yet-to-be-titled album by giving us hints as of what to expect from it. It started with guitarist Ben Weinman describing the mood of the album by saying it would be weirder and darker than their latest work; then by sharing some images of them in the studio working on that album; and now Weinman is saying the album will sound like 2002’s Irony Is A Dead Scene.
During an interview with BBC, Weinman made an allegory to what the album’s direction is going to be by hinting that it will sound similar to the 14 year old EP, stating:
“This one’s definitely… I mean it’s Dillinger, there’s always like a potpourri of textures that go on. It’s all over the spectrum. I haven’t even heard what Greg‘s doing on it yet. He’s out in California just working on it on his own. But musically it’s been written over a span of like two years. And I’d say there’s some wierder moments on it.
I feel like it’s a little bit more in the realm of the Irony Is A Dead Scene EP or maybe Ire Works. I think we’re probably going to release it in a more interesting way than we have in the past, we’re not sure, probably try to do it not too traditionally.”
We definitely like the sound of that and this makes us wonder if maybe there might be some guests in the new record, like, some guy named Mike Patton, as he was the one who did the vocals for Irony and added some of that distinct sound and because, well, who wouldn’t want to have Mike Patton on their record?
