THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN werden sich ab dem 7. September im Studio verschanzen, um mit Produzent Steve Evetts (EVERY TIME I DIE, SEPULTURA) mit den Aufnahmen zum vierten Album zu beginnen. Das mit "Option Paralysis" betitelte Werk soll Anfang 2010 via Season Of Mist Records in den Läden stehen.
Sänger Greg Puciato sagt: "I feel like I'm missing something. I probably am and it's probably because I've been listening to these insane songs and parts on a loop for months now and it's basically starting to feel like I'm being dropped down a long flight of steep stairs over and over again. I'm telling you... every time we make a record, I think we all go gradually more and more insane from it, and we haven't even started real recording yet.
"We wrap on October 30... hopefully we won't all need lobotomies by then. Why do you think we go through members so fast?
"I can't believe that we start actual tracking in less than two weeks! This time two years ago we were mixing 'Ire Works'. Time flies, and things are way different than they were back then. Two years is a relatively short period of time, but things were literally on the brink of destruction at that time and now they are stronger than ever. Crazy.
"Wait 'til you hear what we've got for you now. The vibe when we recorded 'Ire Works' was defined by a feeling of struggle and hope and just staying alive in the face of almost falling apart, feeling triumphant in making it through the previous couple of years, and now the vibe is OK, now we're just gonna fuck everyone up.'"
