When we announced we inked a deal with THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, we hinted the band's upcoming album would be released on Season of Mist in collaboration with DEP's own new label.
Let guitarist Ben Weinman announce the name of the band's own structure: "We are proud to announce the official creative umbrella for all things Dillinger Escape Plan: Party Smasher inc. After over a decade of touring and making music we have realized that there is the right way of doing things, the wrong way of doing things, and then the Dillinger way of doing things. Party Smasher inc. will represent our collected efforts on all things Dillinger related."
Last week-end, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN performed at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN. This American festival is famous for being not only metal, since artists as diverse as BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, THE BEASTIE BOYS, PUBLIC ENEMY, PHISH and NINE INCH NAILS were also featured on the bill. Read a report on the festival in the New York Times.
The night before, DEP played with NINE INCH NAILS and the performance was pretty epic! We will provide you soon with video footage of both that performance and the Bonnaroo one, but in the meantime we invite you to take a look at DEP's previous guest appearance at a NINE INCH NAILS gig, which took place last March 2nd at the Soundwave Festival in Australia!
