Dillinger Escape Plan Guitarist Given All Clear By Doctors To Play Summer Slaughter

Dillinger Escape Plan (2007) Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman has been given the all clear by doctors to return to the daily grind of touring. Weinman suffered a broken hand last month and was sidelined for a couple of dates but will be able to play Summer Slaughter.

Weiman stated "When the Doctor told me I broke my wrist and that this particular bone doesn’t typically heal my heart sunk. Our record had just come out and we were just getting started with its promotional cycle. I would not let this stop me. I immediately set up an appointment with the best hand surgeon in NY.

"I told him I had to play guitar again in a month. He said, 'ok' I'll put a screw in your wrist.' Two weeks after surgery they took my stitches and cast off and I started playing guitar again. Definitely not the most pleasant experience, but now I almost feel back to myself.

"I have to say that I have a new found appreciation for playing and I can't wait to see you all this summer. Now, back to my rehab."

Summer Slaughter starts next week, dates below.
