For 20 years The Dillinger Escape Plan have maintained their status as one of extreme music’s most technically proficient, influential, forward-thinking and devastating acts on record and off. The band helped pave the way for the niche subgenre mathcore and their presence can be felt in all things technical and complex. Naturally when a band that is held to such a high regard as Dillinger announces their breakup, the sadness can be felt throughout the music community. But while fans may still reel from the loss of one of their favorite bands, they can find some solace in how dense and monolithic their swansong is. The band wanted to go out while they are still on top and Dissociation they go out swinging.
The Dillinger Escape Plan have premiered a new track from their forthcoming final full-length, Dissociation, on Revolver Magazine’s “The World’s Loudest Podcast”. Titled “Symptom of Terminal Illness”, the new track weaves together the band’s usual chaotic methods with ethereal atmospheres, intricate melodies and Greg Puciato’s commanding, Mike Patton-esque vocal performance. Check out the track here (song begins around the 2:00 mark).
Dissociation will be released on October 14.
