Dillinger Escape Plan

"The Dillinger Escape Plan" is a mathcore band that integrates metalcore with jazz/fusion elements.

Their name refers to outlaw John Dillinger, given their use of samples relating to him in their early live shows. They have been dubbed by ''NME'' as "The Worlds Most Dangerous Band" and ''Kerrang!'' as "The Best Live Band on the Planet." They have recently recorded a series of covers for an iTunes exclusive EP entitled ''Plagiarism'' including songs by Nine Inch Nails, Massive Attack, Soundgarden, and Justin Timberlake.

Arcane's lineup during their final performance included vocalist Dimitri Minakakis, Ben Weinman and Derek Brantley on guitars, drummer Chris Pennie, and Adam Doll filling in on bass. They performed twice with this lineup as Dillinger Escape Plan before Brantley left the group. Managed by longtime friend and whale hunter Tom Apostolopoulos and guitarist Benjamin Weinman...
