Published Apr 11, 2014Dillinger Escape Plan just issued a tour-only 7-inch featuring new track "Happiness Is a Smile." If you can't quite make it out to any of the dates on their current North American trip, you can at least catch the track in a new live clip-loaded video.
Sonically, the track is a more modestly paced though still oppressive cut from the mathcore vets, gelling on a gigantic groove and less seizure-riffic guitar runs while still showcasing Greg Puciato's terrifying tough-guy howls. The video was shot in-concert and finds the band wrecking it across the stage and head-walking through the crowd. It's a primer for what upcoming audiences have in store for themselves this spring.
As previously reported, the Dillinger Escape Plan are currently out on the road with Trash Talk and Retox, and have Canadian dates lined up in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver next week. They'll be playing "Happiness Is a Smile" every night. You'll find the tour info current here.
