There’s been some chatter about The Dillinger Escape Plan’s new song “Happiness Is a Smile,” mainly because the only official way to get it is on a 7″ or cassette. We got to hear the song via a video taken at a show last week, but now the band has gone a step further and released a music video for the song. The band posted the video to their Facebook with the following statement:
So we wrote a song. Rather than wait for a new album, and try to figure out how to make it make sense as part of a group of other songs that would be written later, we recorded it instantly, so it could be captured as it’s own statement. We pressed it on a limited edition 7″ vinyl, in a quantity of 500(never to be pressed again), and have it available on this current tour. It’s called “Happiness Is A Smile”. We’ve been playing it every night.
We haven’t said this, but we’ve been filming every show, for something to be released in the future. Come out and be a part.
The future release being teased could very well be a live DVD featuring all the footage being shot. Until we get more news on that, enjoy the new song.
