I’ve been banned from speaking to the Dillinger Escape Plan by their lame-ass publicist. Yeah, I know — kinda sucks. I love those dudes, I love their music, and I love seeing them live. It is a thing of wonderment. But alas, I called their publicist a “weasel” for going behind my back about something, and I’m the dick?
She may have stopped me from speaking to them on the record in interview form, but she can’t stop me from reporting on DEP news or being friendly with the dudes on Facebook. Good thing, too; otherwise, I would have missed the band’s recent status update. The band is hinting something major was on the horizon for 2011; it is believed frontman Greg Puciato maintains the band’s Facebook page. The tease after the jump.
Speaking of tease, I learned a new phrase last night at the Triptykon tour kick-off in New York from a girl who was born to rule: Taco tease. She asked me if I was a taco tease…the opposite of a cock tease. I’ve kind of fallen in love with that phrase now.
“We’re plotting massive N. American shit for early 2011, & we’re tossin’ around plans for S. America, Mexico, and Japan,” the Facebook update reads. “The DEP pirate ship is coming, be patient. Not enough days in the year & not enough years in life that’s for sure.”
Tour, tour, and tour. And that’s awesome, because DEP are awesome. And they are awesome live. I can’t wait for 2011 already.
