The Dillinger Escape Plan have merely one prerogative: to go forward in ALL directions simultaneously. Following on from their ground-breaking 1999 debut full-length, ‘Calculating Infinity’ and the near-perfect pileup of craft and chaos on 2007’s “Ire Works”, The Dillinger Escape Plan have unveiled their latest masterpiece, ‘One of Us is the Killer’.
