The Dillinger Escape Plan will release their sixth full-length album, Dissociation, October 14 via their label Party Smasher. It’s been over three years since Dillinger wet our ears with 2013’s One of Us Is the Killer.
They’ve shared a teaser (see below) which involves a classical tune and some distorted electronics creating quite a bazaar sound, but in a good way. They’ve also got a tour coming up and hopefully will drop the full single soon.
Dillinger Escape Plan members have recently tried to pinpoint the crazy sound of this new album. Guitarist Ben Weinman expanded on his perception of Dissociation during a recent visit with Loudwire.
“I’m never objective enough to actually say anything about the music, especially at this part of the process because I’m too close to it,” Weinman said. “It’s like asking someone if they’re crazy. If they’re crazy, they’re gonna say they’re not crazy. I will say, though, that there’s elements of the process that remind me of the Calculating Infinity time. This record, we had our hands on every single thing. There’s also something different about the sound of it. It doesn’t sound like anything in our catalogue production-wise. Calculating didn’t sound like any record I had ever heard, it sounded cold and weird. In that respect, it’s kind of a bookend to Calculating.”
