The Dillinger Escape Plan was an American metalcore band. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_0

The band was formed in 1997 in Morris Plains, New Jersey by guitarist Ben Weinman, bassist Adam Doll, vocalist Dimitri Minakakis, and drummer Chris Pennie. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_1

The band's use of odd time signatures, polyrhythms and unconventional drum patterns became a staple of their sound, although later albums incorporated more melody, and influences from a range of genres. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_2

The Dillinger Escape Plan's final lineup consists of founding member Weinman, longtime bassist Liam Wilson, vocalist Greg Puciato and drummer Billy Rymer, alongside rhythm guitarist Kevin Antreassian. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_3

The Dillinger Escape Plan achieved critical success, releasing six studio albums during its existence, the first being Calculating Infinity (1999), which has been noted by critics as a landmark release in hardcore punk and heavy metal music. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_4

The album has achieved a cult status selling well over 100,000 copies, which made the band the highest-selling artist on Relapse at the time. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_5

The Dillinger Escape Plan has won various nominations from award shows and publications such as the PLUG Independent Music Awards, Kerrang! The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_6 , Revolver and Metal Hammer. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_7

In 2017, the band won an AIM Award for "Outstanding Contribution to Music". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_8

Prior to the release of their final album, Dissociation (2016), The Dillinger Escape Plan announced that they would be disbanding at the end of the album's touring cycle. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_9

Their final shows took place at Terminal 5 in New York City from December 27–29, 2017. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_10

History The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_0

As Arcane (1996) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_1

The Dillinger Escape Plan evolved from the hardcore punk band Arcane. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_11

Arcane was an aggressive, political-oriented act formed in 1996 by vocalists Dimitri Minakakis and Brad McMahon, guitarist Ben Weinman, bassist Bruce Fulton and drummer Chris Pennie. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_12

Arcane played for a few months but eventually disbanded because they "were kinda sick of trying to become part of a clique and to write music that would fit into a theme", according to Weinman. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_13

Encouraged by him, they turned around their sound and aesthetic, with bassist Adam Doll, who was Pennie's bandmate in the bands Samsara and Malfactor, becoming interested in their new direction and hence joining the band. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_14

Guitarist Derek Brantley also joined the band following the departure of McMahon and Fulton. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_15

Early years and Calculating Infinity (1997–1999) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_2

Their first live performance, which they also considered the last of Arcane, was as a support act for Overcast and organized by long time friend Matt Backerman. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_16

Backerman had just decided to form Now or Never records and asked the band to record what would be their self titled six-track EP. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_17

Their second show was supporting Earth Crisis in Moosic, Pennsylvania. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_18

They were nameless for many months until, without much thought, friend Matt Makowski suggested the name “The Dillinger Escape Plan” while watching a documentary on John Dillinger, a 1930s bank robber notorious for his multiple escapes from jail. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_19

Weinman telephoned Steve Evetts to produce their album because he was a big fan of his work. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_20

After their first two shows, Brantley lost contact with the band and did not show up when they were recording the six song self-titled effort, causing them to record as a quartet. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_21

The six-track EP was released in April 1997, and set them off on a small club tour around northeast America. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_22

Shortly before their first tour as The Dillinger Escape Plan, the group was joined by guitarist John Fulton, who previously played in the bands Samsara and Malfactor with Pennie and Doll. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_23

In 1998 the band wrote and recorded their second EP titled Under the Running Board. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_24

During this time period, The Dillinger Escape Plan gained notoriety in the hardcore punk scene for the intensity of their performances which were increasingly wild, and often violent. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_25

These features, as well as the creative, technical approach of their music led a record executive of Relapse Records to offer the band a multi-record contract. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_26

Shortly before signing, the Under the Running Board demo was shown to some friends, one of whom was Jesuit vocalist and guitarist Nate Newton who was impressed with their musical proficiency and invited The Dillinger Escape Plan to an American and Canadian tour with them and Botch. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_27

Shortly after their second EP, John Fulton left the band to focus on his computer programming studies. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_28

Before the recording of Calculating Infinity, bassist Adam Doll was involved in a car accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_29

The accident was a minor fender bender, but because Doll had leaned over to pick up a CD beneath the stereo, the accident caused a small fracture in his spine, inducing paralysis. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_30

Guitarist Weinman played both guitar and bass on the album, though liner notes credited Doll as providing a great deal of help. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_31

Calculating Infinity was released on September 28, 1999, through Relapse and was met with critical acclaim. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_32

Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton, one of the first people to hear the album, asked the Dillinger Escape Plan to tour for two months with his band Mr. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_33 Bungle. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_34

Shortly before touring began for the new album, former Jesuit guitarist Brian Benoit auditioned for the band, taking the place of the departed Fulton in November 1998 and Jeff Wood, former M.O.D. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_35

bassist and a childhood friend of Weinman, took the place of the injured bassist Doll. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_36

Search for a new vocalist and Irony Is a Dead Scene (2000–2002) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_3

After several months of touring, including appearances on the Warped Tour and March Metal Meltdown, the band and Wood parted ways, with Wood moving on to his own project, Shat, and Liam Wilson took his place. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_37

Later that same year, the band parted ways with Minakakis. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_38

Minakakis credited his departure from the band to the rigorous touring schedule. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_39

Without a vocalist, The Dillinger Escape Plan began a nationwide search for a replacement via their website, releasing an instrumental version of "43 % Burnt" from Calculating Infinity and inviting prospective vocalists to record and send their own vocal tracks. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_40

They received many submissions, including one with rapping and one with death growls. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_41

While the search was underway, the band had already composed some songs and decided to record an instrumental EP, eventually asking Mike Patton to sing on it. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_42

In the meantime, they played some shows as an instrumental act and invited Sean Ingram of Coalesce to join them at the Krazyfest in July 2001. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_43

In late 2001, Dillinger Escape Plan met Greg Puciato, one of the people who submitted a recording to the band. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_44

Puciato included two versions of "43% Burnt", one in the style of Calculating Infinity and one with his own personal spin. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_45

The band offered him the job after two practice sessions. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_46

He accepted, first appearing at the CMJ Music Festival in New York City in October. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_47

Soon after, Puciato and the band covered "Damaged I" and "Damaged II" by Black Flag for the tribute compilation Black on Black. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_48

The plan to record with Patton was in place before a replacement vocalist had been found, but by the time Patton had recorded vocals and the EP was released, the band had been touring with Puciato for nearly a year. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_49

Epitaph Records offered to release the album and, although the band was doubtful at first, they finally accepted due to the label's enthusiasm. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_50

The EP titled Irony Is a Dead Scene was released on August 27, 2002. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_51

The EP features Weinman, Pennie, Benoit, Wilson, Patton on vocals, and ex-bassist Adam Doll assisting with keyboards and sample effects. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_52

Miss Machine (2003–2005) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_4

In 2003, the band appeared on the soundtrack for Underworld with the song "Baby's First Coffin", their first original song with Puciato on vocals. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_53

The band's second studio album (their first album with Puciato), Miss Machine was released on July 20, 2004, through Relapse. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_54

The album polarized The Dillinger Escape Plan audience; some fans were critical of the band's increasing artistic and musical departures from their earlier efforts, while others preferred them. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_55

Following the release, The Dillinger Escape Plan began a two-year touring cycle, headlining tours of their own or occasionally providing support for acts such as Slipknot, System of a Down, and Megadeth. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_56

These tours were replete with injuries; in late 2004, guitarist Benoit suffered nerve damage (brachial plexus neuritis) in his left hand, and other than a short return to the stage in 2005, he has not played with the band since. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_57

Former Fenix*TX guitarist James Love ended up playing most shows in the late 2004–2006 period. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_58

In 2005, the band was forced to drop out of Dave Mustaine's "Gigantour" slightly early due to a rotator cuff injury and fractured vertebrae Weinman had sustained performing in Anaheim, California at all-ages venue Chain Reaction. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_59

Ire Works (2006–2008) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_5

In 2006, Weinman finally underwent surgery for his shoulder but chose not to treat his neck because of the risks involved. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_60

In June 2006, the band released both the digital EP Plagiarism, a cover album, and Miss Machine: The DVD, which featured live footage of its world tour. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_61

Simultaneously, The Dillinger Escape Plan opened for AFI on tour after being invited by vocalist Davey Havok. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_62

Shortly thereafter, the band toured with label mates Dysrhythmia and later with progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_63

Four shows before the end of the Coheed tour, Weinman flew home for "undisclosed personal reasons", which were later revealed to be compounding medical and financial problems, as well as frictions with Pennie. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_64

The group played four dates as a four-piece. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_65

In a 2008 interview, Greg Puciato said that the relationship between Weinman and Pennie had been acrimonious for several years, involving heated arguments, and the other members had already foreseen a dissolution. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_66

While resting his arm, the guitarist stated he began to compose and experiment with sound design and electronics for the upcoming album. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_67

During the time he was apart, Chris Pennie received a call from Coheed and Cambria guitarist Travis Stever who offered him to join the band when their former drummer, Josh Eppard, left them. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_68

Pennie left The Dillinger Escape Plan amidst writing Ire Works in 2007. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_69

In a 2017 interview, the drummer pointed out two defining incidents for his departure: before releasing Miss Machine, a member of the band turned down a tour slot with a "really big" band without clearing it with the other members, straining his relationship with Weinman, and legal issues of the guitarist in 2006 which put the band on hold. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_70

Other reasons were his priorities in composing and studying music over touring and contractual commitments. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_71

According to The Dillinger Escape Plan members and Relapse Records's Matt Jacobson, Pennie did not inform them until late, despite contractual obligations for the new Dillinger album. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_72

Weinman started to program drums daily for two months out of desperation. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_73

On June 15, the band announced the title of the album as well as confirming the departure of Pennie. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_74

Among the drummers considered to handle drum duties were Morgan Ågren and Sean Reinert, but the band decided to choose the relatively unknown Gil Sharone of Stolen Babies by the suggestion of Chris Hornbrook. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_75

Eventually, The Dillinger Escape Plan completed their follow-up album to Miss Machine in 2004, titled Ire Works. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_76

Ire Works was released on November 13, 2007, through Relapse. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_77

Despite the inner turmoil, when the record was finished the band was more satisfied with it than with any of the previous ones, calling it a "turning point". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_78

The album debuted on the Billboard 200 at number 142 with 7,000 copies scanned, but was later corrected when it was revealed that Relapse did not account for album pre-release sales, increasing the number of total copies sold to 11,000. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_79

Ire Works had been a critical and commercial success, with the album being on many critics' top ten lists, making it the band's most critically successful album. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_80

Jason Lymangrover of AllMusic stated that "[if] DEP aren't careful and continue down this innovative path, they could easily be labeled the Radiohead of metalcore." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_81

On February 6, 2008, the band had two songs from Ire Works broadcast on two television programs in the United States. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_82

The song "Milk Lizard" was featured on the CSI: NY episode "Playing With Matches", and the band performed live the song "Black Bubblegum" on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_83

Missing from the new line up was Benoit, who had left the band because of injury. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_84

Although assured his place in the band is secure should he ever be able to perform again, Jeff Tuttle formerly of Heads Will Roll and Capture the Flag took his place on stage. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_85

Tuttle, however, does not make an appearance on the record. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_86

Party Smasher Inc. and Option Paralysis (2009–2011) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_6

In January 2009, Sharone left the band and was replaced by Billy Rymer. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_87

The Dillinger Escape Plan played in Australia, where they joined Nine Inch Nails onstage during the Soundwave 2009 festival, helping them perform the songs "Wish" and "Mr. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_88 Self Destruct" as part of the last encore song of Nine Inch Nails' live show at the event. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_89

The Dillinger Escape Plan announced their departure from Relapse Records on May 27, 2009. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_90

The band had become dissatisfied with the music industry and music media, and Weinman decided to create the independent record label Party Smasher Inc. to release their fourth studio album. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_91

Since June 2009, they began to release several demo snippets on their YouTube channel of songs from their upcoming album. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_92

Furthermore, a website for the record was set up, linking to all of the studio update videos and demo snippets. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_93

During their North American East Coast tour with Thursday in December 2009, the band sold download cards at their shows that entitled the customer to a download of the 10 song album upon its release with 3 additional exclusive bonus tracks. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_94

The song "Farewell, Mona Lisa", debuted on Liquid Metal SXM on Christmas Day, 2009; it became available for download on January 19, 2010. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_95

"Chinese Whispers" was debuted on Full Metal Jackie’s syndicated radio show broadcast on 29 stations throughout the USA on the March 5, 2010, and was subsequently played on the next two days. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_96

On March 9, the blog MetalSucks featured the online debut of the song. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_97

The band released their fourth studio album, Option Paralysis on March 22, 2010, through Party Smasher in partnership with Season of Mist Option Paralysis was confirmed as the title of the new album in a press release by Season of Mist. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_98

Puciato has noted that Option Paralysis was the toughest album the group and himself have ever written. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_99

In an interview in The Aquarian Weekly, Weinman stated that it was the most organic and less forced than previous works. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_100

The Dillinger Escape Plan started the Option Paralysis touring cycle with a short North American tour with Thursday in December 2009, followed by a headlining run in Feb/March 2010 with Darkest Hour, Animals as Leaders, and Iwrestledabearonce. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_101

While on the tour, the band received a Golden God Award from Revolver magazine, for "Best Underground Band", which Weinman and Puciato accepted. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_102

After a short trip to Europe, they participated in Warped Tour 2010, playing June 24 through August 15. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_103

During a January 12, 2011 interview on the Metal Injection Livecast, Puciato announced that the band was currently in the process of writing new music which would either surface as an EP later in the year or else a full-length album the following year. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_104

However, in 2011 The Dillinger Escape Plan continued to tour, accompanying Deftones for a nine-week-long North American trek from April to June. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_105

Touring continued with former labelmates Mastodon, both in the US in late 2011 and the UK in early 2012, followed by their second appearance at Soundwave Festival in Australia, as well as dates with System of a Down in New Zealand and Australia. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_106

The group also played its first shows in Malaysia and Bangkok, as well as their first South American performance, headlining the second stage on the first night of the prestigious Rock al Parque festival in Bogota, Colombia. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_107

One of Us Is the Killer (2012–2014) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_7

On August 17, 2012, the band announced via their Facebook page that Tuttle had left the band to pursue other projects in music and film. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_108

On November 24, the band played at the California Metalfest alongside bands such as Killswitch Engage and As I Lay Dying. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_109

While playing this show, a mystery guitar player was noticed filling in for former rhythm guitarist Jeff Tuttle, who had left the band in August. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_110

A couple of weeks later, during a phone interview (on the Metal Injection Livecast) while in the studio recording their new album, Weinman announced that this mystery guitar player was James Love, who had played with the band briefly while they toured in support for their album Miss Machine. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_111

On February 18, 2013, the band announced the title of their new album, One of Us Is the Killer, On March 12, they released the first single from the album. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_112

On April 23, The Dillinger Escape Plan released the music video for "When I Lost My Bet", the first from the upcoming album. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_113

It was directed by Mitch Massie and was posted on the band's Facebook page and Sumerian Records' YouTube account. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_114

Subsequent videos released from the album were "One of Us Is the Killer", "Hero of the Soviet Union", and "Paranoia Shields". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_115

The band released their fifth studio album, One of Us Is the Killer on May 14, 2013 through Party Smasher in partnership with various labels around the world, including BMG for Europe, Grind House for Japan, Remote Control for Australia and Sumerian Records for North America. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_116

While touring North American in April 2014, the band released the non-album single, "Happiness Is a Smile". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_117

The single was only released as a seven-inch vinyl and a cassette and was only available the buy on this tour. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_118

On July 14, 2014, it was announced that the band would be playing for two weeks as the opening slot on the Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden North American tour. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_119

This decision was announced following the supposed disbandment of Death Grips, who was originally scheduled to appear as the opening act. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_120

Dissociation and disbandment (2015–2017) The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_8

In May 2015, Kevin Antreassian, a former member of New Jersey progressive metal band Knife the Glitter and former guitar student of Ben Weinman, became the new rhythm guitarist of the band replacing James Love. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_121

In July, Weinman announced during an Australian interview that the band would return to the studio in November to record the follow-up to One of Us Is the Killer. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_122

In the following year, BBC Radio 1 premiered the band's new single "Limerent Death", which would be featured on their sixth studio record Dissociation. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_123

In an interview with Noisey, Weinman said the Dillinger Escape Plan would stop performing, with Puciato later saying "we're breaking up." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_124

Puciato was quoted saying that the band still enjoyed writing, recording and performing together but "we started to reach what felt like a thematic conclusion to our band", comparing the decision to a filmmaker who enjoys the current film he is creating but cannot continue the process indefinitely. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_125

Weinman said, "we are going to do the cycle for this album and that's it." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_126

Dissociation was released on October 14, 2016, through Party Smasher in partnership with Cooking Vinyl. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_127

Revolver reported that they "narrowly survived" the incident. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_132

In April 2018, Antreassian revealed he had two fractured vertebrae and, as a consequence, played with a back brace for a month. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_133

Puciato tore a quadriceps, which he did not treat immediately, and later revealed that he began to suffer from serious mental health issues during this tour, including panic disorder and hypochondria, but following the accident his symptoms became "almost unlivable" and had to receive treatment. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_134

Fans raised over $20,000 in a week to the band following the crash. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_135

It was written during the last Dillinger tour and released through Federal Prisoner. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_154

Musical style The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_10

The Dillinger Escape Plan's music is rooted in extreme metal, metalcore and post-hardcore, and draws heavily from progressive rock, electronic music and jazz fusion. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_155

They have been characterized as mathcore, metalcore, progressive metal, experimental metal, noise metal, noisecore, and jazzcore. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_156

Several reviewers have described their early albums as grindcore performed from a technical approach. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_157

John Adamian of the Hartford Courant classified Dillinger as "a kind of knotted, complex, abrasive math rock", as well as "prog metal that embraces an avant-garde level of coiled and meshed intricacies. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_158

"AllMusic writer Ryan Downey describes the group as "maniacally intense", "crushingly metallic", "displaying rigorous physical endurance," while at the same time notes their "precise musicianship" and "meticulously thought-out" compositions. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_159

John Adamian commented: "Listening to [The Dillinger Escape Plan] sometimes feels like being ground between a system of elaborate gears. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_160

Chromatic turns and cycling patterns notch all the pieces together. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_161

The guitars are often dissonant, shifting into double and triple time, with vocals that deliver a blow-torch scorch." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_162

After Calculating Infinity, they constantly incorporated new sounds and other styles, "even commercial ones", as Andrew Earles of Spin said, and their albums became "packed with the sometimes brutal, sometimes beautiful music only they play" that "skids from grindcore to progressive jazz and beyond". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_163

Some reviewers have compared them with jazz-grindcore project Naked City and progressive metal band Meshuggah. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_164

When asked to define The Dillinger Escape Plan's music, bassist Liam Wilson said: "I usually tell my parents' generation that we sound like what might happen if you took the sophistication of King Crimson and cross-bred us with the snottiness of the Sex Pistols... or 'punk jazz' which is how Jaco Pastorius once described his sound." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_165

In the words of lead guitarist Ben Weinman, the prime mover of The Dillinger Escape Plan, the band's first albums intended to "stir things up", "really try things new", and "challenge people" within the 1990s hardcore punk scene. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_166

He felt that many of its bands were trying to sound like their predecessors from the previous decade rather than "encompass the[ir] attitude", which influenced him deeply, and others were more interested in "joining into cliques" such as straight edge, religious or political groups, instead of prioritizing their music. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_167

At the start of the group, Weinman considered The Dillinger Escape Plan an electronic-infused metal band as both he and Pennie were inspired by IDM music. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_168

However, the members were still knowing each other and "[figuring] out what it was that we wanted to do". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_169

After their debut EP, the band was joined by guitar shredder John Fulton and, prior to composing the Under the Running Board EP, all the members became interested in technical extreme metal and shortly afterward progressive music and jazz fusion. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_170

They tried to adapt the use of odd time signatures and polyrhythms of these artists to a punk context, thus starting to compose pieces with these characteristics and repeat them until they could play it as fast as they could. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_171

From then until their first studio album, Calculating Infinity, they explored more unconventional drum patterns, such as taking notes away to expand their rhythms, or Pennie playing as hard as he could and using china cymbals excessively instead of splashes. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_172

While Pennie composed from a more academic approach, working on theory books for days, Weinman had a more intuitive approach. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_173

They attribute the "tug and pull of" both personalities as a key element in The Dillinger Escape Plan development, but also as the reason for the drummer's eventual departure from it. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_174

The groundbreaking 1999 debut created a huge hype, but the band members gained an interest on melodic songwriting and production along the way, and also wanted to fully explore their electronic influences. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_175

Hence, following the departure of Dimitri Minakakis, they did this on the Irony Is a Dead Scene EP with Mike Patton, which "opened the doors" for the band's experimentation. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_176

Looking to cover all their musical influences and both Minakakis and Patton's ranges, the band hired Greg Puciato, whose vocal delivery spans styles from screaming to crooning, and he was encouraged to sing by the other members. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_177

While maintaining their original style, on 2004's Miss Machine they incorporated more melody, industrial influences and strings, as well as two songs that were not initially composed for Dillinger nor in their usual style to "not be pigeonholed". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_178

Their next release, Ire Works, featured more sounds ranging from "glitchy electropop" to Latin jazz, an increasing use of programming and instruments such as horns and piano. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_179

2010's Option Paralysis has more piano, vocal harmonies and on this album the band "learned how to merge [all these new] elements" within the songs rather than separating them from song to song, as Puciato stated. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_180

He referred to its follow-up, One of Us Is the Killer, as a continuation of this and it was the first since Calculating Infinity were they composed all the music during its songwriting process. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_181

Scott A. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_182

Gray of Exclaim! The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_183

stated: "The tightness, the focus of [One of Us Is the Killer], was ludicrous, seemingly taken as far as it could go". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_184

On the contrary, Dissociation drew from all their different inspirations but mostly from song to song, including, for example, long instrumental sections of IDM and jazz fusion, and some parts were composed many years before its recording. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_185

Influences The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_11

The background of the early Dillinger Escape Plan members was diverse. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_186

Some, including bassist Adam Doll, guitarist John Fulton and drummer Chris Pennie, were mostly influenced by technical players, as well as heavy extreme metal bands such as Death, Morbid Angel, Carcass and Meshuggah, whereas guitarist Ben Weinman and vocalist Dimitri Minakakis by metalcore and post-hardcore bands of the 1990s, particularly Deadguy, Dazzling Killmen, Today Is the Day, Coalesce, Fugazi and Drive Like Jehu. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_187

While Weinman still appreciated heavy metal, he became "desensitized" to most of it because "there weren't new bands or old bands creating new albums that were pushing anything [new]" and felt it had become "formulaic". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_188

He and Pennie were also heavily inspired by IDM artists, especially Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and Autechre. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_189

What tied all the band members together was their admiration for progressive and jazz fusion artists such as King Crimson, Cynic, Meshuggah and Mahavishnu Orchestra, particularly their albums Discipline, Focus, Destroy Erase Improve and Apocalypse respectively. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_190

They credit these artists for their choice of complex time signatures and unconventional beat accenting. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_191

The guitarist also cited IDM music for his use of chaotic riffs, stating that, in some ways, they did "the guitar version of [intelligent dance music], using certain rhythms and frequencies" that sound "so random, but the more you listened to it, the more it made sense, and actually had intention." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_192

They learned how to blend all their initial influences on the Under the Running Board EP, and, for this album, the joining of Fulton had a major impact on Weinman's guitar playing through the incorporation of more technical types of guitar work. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_193

The group, however, did not fully display their electronic influences until the Irony Is a Dead Scene EP because of the lack of equipment and time restraints. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_194

Between the period of writing and promoting Calculating Infinity, 1997's OK Computer by Radiohead had an important effect on Ben Weinman, whereas 1998's Psyence Fiction by Unkle and 1999's The Fragile by Nine Inch Nails influenced Chris Pennie. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_195

These records led the band to focus more on songwriting, production and experimentation on their next album, Miss Machine, instead of just "rip everything as fast as we can". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_196

Former drummer Chris Pennie went to jazz school and was especially inspired by Cynic's Sean Reinert, Vinnie Colaiuta, Terry Bozzio, Meshuggah's Tomas Haake and DJ Shadow, whereas Liam Wilson cited Jaco Pastorius and James Jamerson as his biggest bass inspirations. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_197

Among the main guitar influences of The Dillinger Escape Plan were Mahavishnu Orchestra's John McLaughlin, King Crimson's Robert Fripp and Steve Vai. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_198

For his part, vocalist Greg Puciato cited Mike Patton of Faith No More and H.R. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_199

of Bad Brains as his biggest influences when growing up, stating that he learned to sing by emulating them, and on the other hand Death's Chuck Schuldiner for screaming. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_200

He said of the former: "[they] opened my eyes a lot to what could be done with the voice overtop of heavy music". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_201

Songwriting The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_12

The songwriting process of The Dillinger Escape Plan usually started with Weinman's guitar ideas and, especially since Ire Works, software' rhythms or sound design that he presented to the drummer. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_202

Until the recording sessions, the two could barely perform some of these pieces in an accurate way because of their complexity. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_203

Both wrote and focused on approximately ten seconds of music every day, developing them through jam sessions and afterward joining several parts that "could go cohesively" together. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_204

They send these demos to Greg Puciato and Liam Wilson: the first joined different pieces together and worked over them, making "a picture that means something to" him. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_205

Puciato stated that he could spend days to just compose a fifteen seconds part the way he wanted. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_206

Usually, Liam Wilson was the last member to compose due to the suggestion of producer Steve Evetts, who is also a bassist, in order that he could counterpoint with any instrument, including Puciato's vocals and the electronics. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_207

Weinman and Puciato consider themselves to be songwriters instead of a guitarist and a vocalist, and, over time, they added diverse instruments and samples on some songs, focusing on what would fit best into them rather than their live instrumentation. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_208

Recording The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_13

Since their inception, Steve Evetts was the producer, sound engineer and mixer of almost all The Dillinger Escape Plan's releases. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_209

His close involvement in these roles led him to be considered as another member of the band. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_210

The recording sessions were often described as exhausting because the members tracked sections in a way they thought were fine as the final take, but Evetts made them repeat some of these a large number of times until it sounded "like a Pro Tools copy-paste", yet without the use of audio effects. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_211

The producer nitpicked details such as Wilson's type of plectrum and its angle of playing. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_212

Puciato, Weinman and Evetts rarely worked all together in the studio; while two of them were recording, the other was absent to "[stay] fresh" so that, later on, "he can make comments and it’s easy enough to be objective" for making adjustments. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_213

From Option Paralysis on, Puciato and Weinman became largely involved in the recording process, working on it to the point of "obsession", and postponed their recording deadlines for months in order to redo their album mixes numerous times. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_214

Stage performances The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_14

The Dillinger Escape Plan was noted for their reckless, chaotic live shows. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_215

While playing, some band members would climb up and leap off of parts of the stage, bounce off walls, dive into moshpits and destroy their own gear. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_216

Over time they incorporated samples, a light show and other elements. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_217

In their early performances, Ben Weinman threw his guitar across the rooms in which they played and, shortly afterward, Dimitri Minakakis started to breathe fire. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_218

The band's turning point came in 2001 with the new vocalist Greg Puciato, whose imposing body and destructive antics, coupled with his vocal expertise, made him "the perfect physical embodiment of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s music." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_219

The singer kept blowing fire continuously until The Station nightclub fire happened (an incident unrelated to the band which restricted the use of pyrotechnics) and began to run violently from the stage on top of the crowd. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_220

Initially, the band had a "pirate-ship mentality" which involved several destructive acts, but they stopped performing some of these after receiving various lawsuits. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_221

The concerts caused the band members both direct and cumulative injuries. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_222

Their physical performances were improvised and, despite the aggressive nature of their shows, they "just want[ed] to be as pure and in the moment as possible vocally and physically", rather than performing acts that can cause harm to others. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_223

Weinman said their live shows were initially influenced by him "hating people" and he used them as "a way for after school, or work, after a long week, to play a show and just vent". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_224

According to him, these were also inspired by bands such as Deadguy and Coalesce, while his ethic to always make performances their priority came from Fugazi. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_225

Reading controversy The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_15

At the 2002 edition of the prestigious Reading Festival, the Dillinger Escape Plan's performance made national United Kingdom headlines because vocalist Greg Puciato defecated in full view onstage, put it into a bag, and threw it into the crowd before smearing the rest onto himself, proclaiming "This is a bag of shit, I just wanted to show you this so you'll recognize it later on throughout the day" referring to the quality of some bands he felt were appearing that day of the festival, particularly Puddle of Mudd. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_226

The act nearly got the band banned from the UK for violation of public-decency laws, despite this the band's set was one of the highest reviewed of the entire festival that year, and was later included in a list of the top one hundred Reading or Leeds performances of the decade. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_227

Upon returning to Reading in 2016, Puciato played the opening song "Prancer" sitting on an onstage couch reading a newspaper and drinking tea. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_228

Puciato later commented on the act saying; The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_229

Business practices and ethics The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_16

Throughout most of their career, The Dillinger Escape Plan led a steadfast DIY ethic. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_230

In the beginning, they were managed by long time friend of the band Tom Apostolopoulos, who acted as a tour manager, along with Ben Weinman, and, since the Miss Machine's touring cycle, only by the last. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_231

During the first years, both were in charge of the financial affairs of the band, scheduled tours by calling all their phone contacts, rented and booked transport, and placed flyers printed by Weinman on the walls of New Jersey. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_232

Until 2011, Greg Puciato was in charge of merchandising, clothing design and mailing. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_233

Their road crew was not expanded substantially over the years and the band members kept contributing to the technical and traveling tasks until their last tour. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_234

Their work ethic was directly inspired by the 1990s American hardcore punk scene. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_235

They also cited Mike Patton as both an artistic and business "mentor". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_236

The singer's influence on The Dillinger Escape Plan began on their 1999 tour supporting Patton's Mr. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_237 Bungle, particularly by seeing how he decided to travel in a van, carry and set up his own gear, and not hire a technician, despite having "had recently been playing stadiums with Faith No More", but simultaneously he had a perfectionist standard on their live shows and did not open the venues at which they played until the sound was ideal. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_238

In 2009, Weinman founded the independent record label Party Smasher Inc. for all things related to The Dillinger Escape Plan, as well as hosting diverse independent artists and contributors. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_239

Weinman stated that, rather than creating a record label as such, this was intended to give them total freedom to explore all the possibilities of the music industry in the Information Age instead of being restricted by a traditional record deal. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_240

They released their last three albums on the label. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_241

Although never having had an agenda on their lyrics, the band members were outspoken and usually controversial in interviews. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_242

In 2016, Puciato said: "We give a lot of fucks about not giving a fuck, if that makes sense. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_243

We have a really high level of quality control about not putting parameters and cages around ourselves creatively. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_244

That's kind of been the only motivation I've ever had". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_245

On Miss Machine, they included the songs "Unretrofied" and "Phone Home" that were not initially composed for Dillinger nor in their usual style in order to not "be confined into a specific space". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_246

2006's cover album Plagiarism was intended "to tell the close-minded metal community that it's OK to listen to other music". The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_247

After their first albums, they toured with bands from diverse genres outside of the metalcore scene to prevent being "pigeonholed into" it. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_248

They were vocal about their dislike for styles such as nu metal and mainstream metalcore of the early to mid-2000s, as well as mocked musicians such as Jared Leto, Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Atreyu, and Linkin Park. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_249

At different line-ups, all of them were straight edge and, as of mid-2005, most had only vegetarian catering while touring. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_250

Bassist Liam Wilson, who was a vegan, appeared in several pro-vegan advertisements for PETA since the mid-2000s and the whole band did it in 2008 against dog fighting. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_251

While touring, the band placed a voter registration booth for the 2004 United States presidential election. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_252

The Dillinger Escape Plan did several charity concerts and sold merchandise with a portion of their profit's toward philanthropic organizations, including Music for Relief, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The Trevor Project, among others. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_253

On one occasion, The Dillinger Escape Plan rejected a tour slot with thrash metal group Slayer in spite of being fans of them, because their lyrics and imagery regarding Nazism were "questionable" and "never ... sufficiently explained" to Weinman, who had relatives that were murdered in the Holocaust. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_254

Legacy The Dillinger Escape Plan_section_17

The Dillinger Escape Plan is often considered one of the most influential bands in extreme music circles since the late 1990s. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_255

The impact of their idiosyncratic style has been compared to the ones of My Bloody Valentine on shoegaze and Refused on post-hardcore. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_256

Alex Lynham of MusicRadar states that "Dillinger Escape Plan are one of the few guitar bands of the past 25 years to make a total and radical break with the music of the past and forge a unique sound", spawning "countless imitators, iterations and acolytes." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_257

Maximus Frank of MetalSucks has remarked "The Dillinger Escape Plan will be remembered as one of the greatest bands of all time – and possibly, the greatest punk band ever. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_258

Full stop." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_259

Drowned in Sound's Ben Patashnik declared in 2007 that Dillinger is one of the few bands to have "emerged from small, insular, resolutely non-mainstream scenes" and at the same time "managed to reach well further than one might reasonably think possible." The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_260

The Dillinger Escape Plan were honored at the 2017 Association of Independent Music Awards. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_261

The band received the "Outstanding Contribution to Music" prize at the ceremony at The Brewery, Clerkenwell. The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_262

The AIM Awards judge and Metal Hammer editor Merlin Alderslade said: The Dillinger Escape Plan_sentence_263
