The Dillinger Escape Plan
Too mathy and precise for a lot of hardcore fans and too weird and noisy for a lot of metalheads, the Dillinger Escape Plan has nonetheless carved a niche for itself in both realms. Starting in Morris Plains, New Jersey, the Plan quickly made a name for itself with frenetically intense live shows, which ultimately caught the attention of Mike Patton, who invited the band to open for a late-era Mr. Bungle tour. Despite what appears to be a string of momentum-breaking injuries to group members since its inception, the Plan has endured, and it has consistently pushed itself to newer heights of experimentation with its sound on every new release, including the recently issued Option Paralysis. Currently on the Warped Tour, these guys will undoubtedly be the kids that aren't like the others.
