THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN NAMES 2 TRACKS OFF UPCOMING RELEASE

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN‘s previous work has been praised nearly universally by press worldwide. “If you really want to know (their) songs,” says The New York Times “…you have to listen repeatedly and concentrate” calling them “extreme musical craft.” Names of the latest examples of their craft – tracks off the upcoming OPTION PARALYSIS – is something the band intends to reveal in waves.

“Farewell, Mona Lisa” and “Good Neighbor” are the first two officially announced off the highly anticipated OPTION PARALYSIS, due March 23, 2010.

The critically acclaimed rockers recently finished recording OPTION PARALYSIS, which will be the debut release for their brand new label PARTY SMASHER INC / SEASON OF MIST. The opus was recorded in Orange County, CA with longtime collaborator / producer Steve Evetts (The Used, Glassjaw, Every Time I Die).

Known worldwide for their outrageous live shows, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN will kick off a tour with THURSDAY this Friday, December 4th in New York. “Call them insane, call them suicidal, call them out of control, but don’t call The Dillinger Escape Plan lazy. The band’s members put 100 percent into every performance,” says Guitar World.

NEW SIGNING

Topshelf Records has set out to conquer 2010 with its newest addition to the family, Pianos Become The Teeth. The label – whose roster also includes bands such as Defeater and My Heart To Joy – will release Baltimore, Maryland hardcore outfit’s sophomore album, Old Pride, in January of 2010.

Pianos Become The Teeth has a melodic yet uncompromising sound that brings to mind such diverse and influential bands as Thursday, Envy and City of Caterpillar. Breathing with sincerity and brandishing an experimental ambiance, the band is pushing beyond the boundaries of a stale genre. Mixing elements of screamo, hardcore as well as post rock, Old Pride breathes new life into a once decaying scene.
