The group, formed in the mid-‘90s, has seen their members come and go, but they’ve stuck close to their avant garde blend of punk, metal and jazz. An unlikely combination, to be sure, but one that’s won the Dillinger Escape a pack of die-hard fans all over the globe.

Perhaps some of that fame can be put down to the fact that the band rarely stops touring. Already this year they’ve headlined their own outing in the spring and joined the Take Action Tour over the summer months.

In December they’ll blitz the U.K. for a handful of shows and then head back to North America for a super-packed couple of months playing the club circuit starting mid-January.

It looks like the Plan’s most recent album offering is 2002’s Mike Patton (of Faith No More fame)-fronted EP, Irony Is A Dead Scene.
