Hands up! How many of you Dillinger Escape Plan aficionados realised that, eighteen months prior to his discreet tip-toe out of the fold, guitarist Jeff Tuttle was fronting another band? Yes, they even released a self-titled EP in 2011 which largely went unnoticed to pretty much anyone outside of Detroit (well, anyone who doesn’t read Thrash Hits, at any rate).

Top 6: Reasons we’re not (too) sad that Jeff Tuttle has left The Dillinger Escape Plan

August 18th, 2012

Jeff Tuttle from The Dillinger Escape Plan by Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

Okay. That blog title is a massive piece of misdirection. When the news came in yesterday that Jeff Tuttle had decided to part ways with The Dillinger Escape Plan, we were really bummed out. We frickin’ love DEP, and we frickin’ love what Tuttle brought to the band. Although he didn’t appear on Ire Works, Tuttle had been in the band since they started touring that release, and his contributions to 2010’s Option Paralysis – which was Thrash Hits’ Album of 2010 – can’t be understated either.

However, rather than despair that a member of our favourite bands has decided to leave, we’re giving this one a positive spin. Which is why we’ve gone and put together….

If you’ve been reading Thrash Hits for any length of time now, you’ll know we’ve got a lot of time for The Armed. In case you’re new to these parts, The Armed are DIY-as-fuck, Detroit-based, DEP-associated badasses, who put out all of their releases for free download. Well, DIY is all good, and giving away ALL your music for free is even better, but it doesn’t exactly pay the bills when it comes to recording new material.

The Dillinger Escape Plan are coming back to London in April – and maybe a whole UK tour to boot

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….
