Published Aug 12, 2016Though the Dillinger Escape Plan won't be heading on their extended hiatus for a while, guitarist Ben Weinman is already focusing his attention on outside projects. Ahead of the release of supergroup Giraffe Tongue Orchestra's debut LP, they've issued a video behind its full-throttle first single, "Crucifixion."
The song had been teased earlier in the year, introducing listeners to the prog-punk blend of busy beats, seething six-string sounds from Weinman and Mastodon member Brent Hinds, and the '90s alt-croon of Alice in Chains' William DuVall. Video-wise, the clip presents simply stated footage of the band jamming with jarring clips of POW camps, atomic bomb tests and dictatorial speeches.
