Dillinger Escape Plan signs with Sumerian Records

Thursday, November 22, 2012 6:40 AM PT


In a bit of a surprise move, Dillinger Escape Plan has signed a deal with Sumerian Records. Said deal means that the band's own imprint, Party Smasher Inc., will now be under the Sumerian Records umbrella. DEP had the following to say:

"The video below is to announce that Sumerian Records is now the official home for our label 'Party Smasher Inc.' Look for the new Dillinger Escape Plan release this spring followed by some other exciting projects and releases! Get ready. 2013 belongs to us."

they should not have signed with sumerian. instead of signing with sumerian, they should have signed with a different label.

^ somebody is a big boy now, making statements that are bland and redundant. sounds like they worked out a distro deal, money is neat-o. taking my dog outside now

At least Sumerian can claim to have one good band on their roster now.

Sumerian is gay as fck. Maybe DEP will start with a groundbreaking sceneCore dance pop album or whatever the fck gay shit you homos are into. Gay on all fronts, I hope they only sing this album and dress like nikki sixx. Douche-Tropolis.

Dillinger Escape Plan are the intelligent Jews. They're not like that piece of shit Tragic Hero Records.

No care since Miss Machine. Bring back Dmitri.

anonymous
11/22/2012 9:37:39 AM
I 2nd Dimitri's return, although Miss Machine was fcking horrible. How much ya bench?

11/22/2012 9:39:53 AM
Yeah this drastically reduces the chances of them ever releasing an album as good as Calculating Infinity again.

11/22/2012 9:40:32 AM
Do these guys even lift?

Dillinger. No. Dillinger. Stahp.

11/22/2012 12:22:53 PM
Dillinger Escape Plan are, quite possibly, the worst band ever. Like, actually. Genuinely the worst band *ever*

LOL. This is hilarious.

anonymous

P.S. Miss Machine was better than Calculating Infinity. At least a few of the tracks actually resembled proper songs, and not just some gay shrieking over free jazz played on top of gay blastbeats

anonymous

At least they are relevant again by signing with Sumerian

anonymous
11/22/2012 3:04:10 PM
^ is the epitome of a gay. Scened out to the max, bro-proper, trend setting, the whole nine yards.

Calculating Infinity is why DEP is still a band, so was Under the Runningboard and the first ep, singing it what made them gay. Dillinger was an escape artist, the music was sneaky escapey and sweet. Now it L.A. Glam with a sideorder of Scene. Its sad.

Sumerian Records is a globalist/illuminati plot to kill metal and further dumb-down civilization.

Anybody posting about Defonce is retarded. Although I appreciate your efforts to point out how big of a douche that guy is, DEP is wayyy too big to be fcking around with anything defonce tier

Kind of shows the direction DEP is headed in (and has been headed in for the 10 years or so). Haven't heard anything worth listening to from them since Miss Machine (and even that wasn't that great). Guys should have given it up a long time ago. Ash probably is more stoked on having a big name band like Dillinger on his roster than about them actually releasing decent music.

11/22/2012 7:03:02 PM
Liked 'em more when they sounded like Deadguy.

Adurrrrrrr Sumerian is distributing all the records on their label, including theirs. Guess what you idiots, it's a business. DEP probably worked out a sweet deal with Ash, that's going to generate money for the both of them. It's like Goodfight being affiliated with E1.

^^^^

That's why I've never seen a physical copy of the ABACABB album, because Sumerian is so good at distribution.

11/23/2012 9:42:18 AM
They left Season of Mist because Complete Failure got signed.

John Zorn called to tell me these guys ruled. The Caller ID was from a gay bar.

Jenna Haze should be on this.

anonymous
11/24/2012 1:57:40 AM
If you believe that this band is by any means better than Naked City you're simply fcking stupid and probably have some shit like King Conqueror playing in your Prius gaymobile.

anonymous
11/24/2012 5:32:49 AM
Jenna haze should absolutely be on this

anonymous
11/24/2012 6:58:13 AM
Most definitely Dillinger was influenced By John Zorn and Naked City, and I bet if you asked JZ he would probably agree, He really likes Dillinger. But I am surprised Zorn is even being mentioned in of all places on Lambgoat..Zorn would most likely laugh real hard or be disgusted at the sheer ignorance displayed here. I met him in 1995 and very introspective intelligent and kind.. and the gay comments lend credence to what I just said

Compelling argument, Im sold.

I don't know if I'd trust the musical taste of someone that uses the term "jocking." gay.

they are an ok band that will now have autotuned clean vocals and djent breakdowns

Option Paralysis was great, none of you could ever write a record that good. If you ever said anything dumb and hateful on Lambgoat you instantly qualify for a douschebag hat.

good you to do all type of helpful things, from allowing 3d stereoscopic displays https://kodidownloadtv.com to altering your resolution, stretching the media, and even allowing nice.
