Dillinger Escape Plan Reschedule European Tour Dates

The Dillinger Escape Plan Dillinger Escape Plan Reschedule European Tour Dates

It’s been two weeks since The Dillinger Escape Plan were involved in a horrific accident during their European tour, when a truck crashed into their tour bus. The incident left 13 people injured and destroyed the band’s gear.

The remainder of the tour dates were canceled, but the band has made good effort to reschedule the rest of the run fro some time during the Summer, with the tour kick-off in Belfast on June 8th.

The band themselves suffered undisclosed injuries, although fortunately no one had any critical injuries.

Dillinger released a detailed statement regarding the accident, stating, in part, “We were ripped out of sleep at 8:25AM to what still feels like a lucid nightmare. The cacophony of metal bending and things breaking and people screaming and what felt like being hit by a missile. Without going into detail, not everyone is out of the hospital yet and some of us are hurt worse than others.”

The band further stated: “Questions like why did this happen, why are we alive and others not, why are the people from the Bay Area fire dead, why at all is anyone here or not. What the hell is all of this. Remember how valuable life is. We are all lucky to be alive. To just have any time at all.”
