Dillinger Escape Plan
recently began the writing process for their follow-up to 2010's Option Paralysis (Season of Mist). Earlier this month, guitarist and DEP songwriter Benjamin Weinman began working on new material with drummer Billy Rymer. At the time, frontman Greg Puciato had the following to say:
"Ben and Billy working on new DEP in the dressing room. After ten years it still makes my heartrate go up to hear new DEP ideas forming. I know it's time to write a new album when it feels like this. After 'Option' I couldn't even imagine writing anymore. So draining. Time now. That said, we have no intention of writing a 'better' Option Paralysis. We're gonna unleash a whole 'nother beast that lives on its own."
Fast forward several weeks and Blabbermouth
has now posted the following update from Weinman:
"Billy and I have been locked up in the Dillinger compound and things are starting to boil. There is nothing like that feeling when you realize... Yep, just when I thought I was drained, the juices are back in full force! The neighbors are definitely getting pissed, but we couldn't be more excited."
