Published Nov 18, 2008The Dillinger Escape Plan have clearly been doing some navel gazing and reflecting on their history as of late. As we previously reported, last month the band reissued Under The Running Board, their debut EP from 1998. Now theyve announced that theyll be releasing a documentary that chronicles their early years as a band.
On their MySpace blog, the band detailed the release with their typical sense of humour, stating, "We're wrapping up a DVD, a documentary on the early years Dillinger, from the beginning, all the way through the end of the Calculating Infinity cycle, which is gonna be really cool for the ten of you out there who weren't in elementary school when this band started. For everyone else, it'll be a history lesson well worth watching, to see how this beast got started.
Perhaps all this looking back is meant to provide the band with some direction for the future, as they've have also announced that theyre working on new material, stating, "Were writing new songs. They will be here soon. When I say soon, I mean DEP time, but soon nevertheless even factoring in DEP time and I promise you, these songs are gonna make each and every one of you make THE FACE. To understand "THE FACE, youll have to consult the blog for a pictorial description.
