The Dillinger Escape Plan are about to embark on an awesome tour with Mastodon and Red Fang. But that is not the only thing Dillinger related to get excited for. Recent, guitarist Ben Weinman revealed on Dillinger\’s blog that the members of the mathcore giants have other things in store for us!
1. You may remember hearing that Ben, Brent Hinds of Mastodon, Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction, and Thomas Pridgen of The Mars Volta are forming a new supergroup. Ben announced on the blog that he will be releasing song snippets of what he and Eric have been working on in the coming weeks. So be on the look out!
2. Vocalist Greg Puciato and Max Cavalera’s (Soulfly, Sepultura) project is in full effect. No big details have been revealed about the project yet except Greg posted a picture of a burnt copy of the band’s four song demo. Keep your eyes open for this one.
3. Guitarist/vocalist Jeff Tuttle has released new music with his band, Old Gods. Tuttle provides vocals to this project and it sounds great! Check it out!
4. Bassist Liam Wilson has been working on a project with Nanos Operetta (they provided some string arrangements for Ire Works). No big details have been revealed yet, but be sure to check out Liam’s website periodically for updates.
5. Ben and drummer Billy Rymer are working on a secret project together. Ben didn’t say much about it except to stay tuned in the next few weeks for a preview. But if it’s Dillinger related, I am sure it will be good.
6. Ben is also involved in ANOTHER project called “Cut Throat Tactics”. Ben will provided drums to this project and it will feature Don Devore, Joshua Brown, and Chris Tropea of Ink & Dagger as well as Geoff Rickly of Thursday. “Like” Cut Throat Tactics on Facebook to get updates on the coming madness.
7. Ben will be involved in a project creating and scoring film trailer music. Sounds very interesting.
All of these projects sound very promising and I can’t wait to hear some material from each. But until then, I will rock “Sunshine the Werewolf” repeatedly!
