Yeah, it’s that tour. The one the US had last year and we were all really jealous about. Oh well. We got it too. Mastodon and The Dillinger Escape Plan released the Thrash Hits Album of the Year of 2011 and 2010 respectively. Red Fang released an album last year but it went largely unnoticed. Shit happens. The good news is that we went to Brixton (and Manchester) to see this tour. Is that good news? It is. It definitely is.

Six things we learnt when we saw Mastodon/TDEP/Red Fang at Brixton

They might’ve only just finished touring the UK in support of Mastodon, but it seems The Dillinger Escape Plan already look set to be making a return to our shores sooner rather than later. We’ve just spied this date – 26 April 2012 – as a scheduled Dillinger Escape Plan show over on The Highbury Garage’s website, even though there’s not been an official announcement anywhere else yet.

Tickets go on sale on 15 February, i.e., on Wednesday. You better believe we’re going to be at the head of queue. We’ll have more dates and details for you when we get ’em. Although thinking about other bands’ album release schedules, it’d make sense (and be a frickin’ KILLER line-up) if this turned out to be a dual-headliner jaunt with either Cancer Bats or Every Time I Die as opposed to just a Groezrock warm-up show….

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – as far as touring line-ups go, the combination of Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Red Fang has set the bar for 2012. Given that Mastodon put out the Thrash Hits Album of 2011, The Dillinger Escape Plan put out the Thrash Hits album of 2010, and Red Fang are one of our favourite up’n’coming crushers, it’s gonna take one heck of a tour to top this.

Yep, The Dillinger Escape Plan released our favourite album of 2010 with Option Paralysis. Now they’ve made a video for ‘Gold Teeth On A Bum’. Woo hoo!

In other DEP news, singer Greg Puciato wrote 1,752 words about file sharing in response to a Belfast student’s question. You can read some choice quotes down below but we strongly suggest you read Greg’s response in its entirety because he is a clever man who dislikes Jared Leto as much as we do.
