THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Guitarist’s Broken Hand Forces European Show Cancelations

New Jersey-based “mathcore” act THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN has canceled its previously announced summer European tour dates due to a broken hand suffered by the band’s guitarist, Ben Weinman.

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN performed as a four-piece at this past weekend’s Orion Music + More festival in Detroit, Michigan, with Weinman watching the show from the side of the stage in a chair (see photo below).

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN‘s fifth full-length album, “One Of Us Is The Killer”, sold around 15,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 25 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on May 14 through the band’s own Party Smasher Inc., in partnership with Sumerian Records in North America. Party Smasher‘s partnership with BMG covers the rest of the world, including licensing deals with Grind House for Japan and Remote Control in Australia.

“One Of Us Is The Killer” was recorded in Southern California with longtime producer Steve Evetts (GLASSJAW, THE CURE, SUICIDE SILENCE), with additional production at guitarist/co-founder Ben Weinman‘s studio. Mastering was handled by Tom Baker (DEFTONES, NINE INCH NAILS, BEASTIE BOYS).
