THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN
THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN has been a juggernaut since their inception in 1997. With their appeal to music lovers of many varieties and tastes, their unparalleled live performances, their awards and accolades and their ultra-loyal legion of fans, they have made an indelible mark on the world of rock music. The band has put out five studio albums, four EPs that included a #1 on Billboard Heatseekers chart and a #4 on Billboard Indie charts. They have been winners of The Golden Gods’ Best Underground Band, Kerrang!’s Inspiration Award and Relentless Award as well as a VH1 Most Influential Guitarist award
Their sound is unlike that of any other band, but that has been the inspiration for many that have followed. The New York Times described it best when they said, “If you really want to know these songs — metal through the jazz-rock filter of Allan Holdsworth and Mahavishnu Orchestra — you have to listen repeatedly and concentrate. Increasingly it’s a composer’s music…a haywire, acrobatic combustion that occurs in almost every song.”
In 2016, The Dillinger Escape Plan released their sixth full-length album, Dissociation, announcing it to be their final full-length album before an ‘extended hiatus’.
