For once, I'm really glad I actually got woken up by your twitter haha.

How do I grow up to be awesome as you are?

In all seriousness, has your full vision of Dillinger come to fruition yet or are we just hitting the tip of the iceberg?

Also, what's going on with the label thing? Are you guys still on relapse or you doing some NIN type shit now?

Are you sticking with Steve Evetts?

Are you going to do an internet only release, or will there be a tangible copy for the new album?

Have you written any new material that will be played in the upcoming tour?

Favorite band at the moment?

Steve is scheduled to do the record unless he cant for some reason then I will prob just do it myself. AT the moment not everyone has heard the new songs so not sure if we can get them going fast enough to play but maybe.
fav band is the new dillinger songs because thats all i hear all day. but we prob suck

I heard the dudes from Meshuggah taught you to program drums with DFH and Cubase. Are you writing the drum parts for the new stuff yourself, or are you letting Rymer do it?

you got a lot of questions haha. Well for one I'm not grown up. I am a dude who actually has hurt his asshole because he was trying to make a fart as loud as I possibly could in a public place and pushed too hard.

I take dillinger day by day. I'm pretty happy with what we have done. NOt every song has always come out exactly the way I wanted and we have not always made the right decisions along the way but i can say that we have pretty much maintained an overall ethic that im very proud of.

We are off relapse and will be doing things all kinds of ways now that we have 100% control of the business side of things. Trent has def been an inspiration on that front.

I am not a hairy man. More like a man boy actually. All our bass players have been very hairy. Adam actually could look like a werewolf if he didnt shave and painted his nose black. Sometimes I think Liam is wearing a fur coat when he has his shirt off but then I realize he is vegan. Me... I'm just too busy to shave.

Haven't really gotten to that point yet. I always have a lot of that stuff already written in my head and then its just a matter of whether we use it or not. AT the moment everything sounds the very opposite of Catchy.

tons of questions.

What direction is DEP going, in terms of songwriting, and what do you plan to accomplish with this album? Can you describe the feel of the songs so far?

Also, when will we know the name of the album?!

Yeah Kevin from KTG is a good friend and we are psyched to take him to Europe with us. He runs Backroom studios though so prob couldn't do that much touring in the future. When you say replace Asian steve do you mean get a new guitar tech or get another dude that we give a name, make famous, and then goes and techs for a band that plays to a dat and doesn't plug in? Anyway, we wish him luck and a lot of teen poon. We are not really worried about filling the position for now as we will not be full time touring until fall.

remix ep

hey Ben- I saw you've been doing some remixing (weezy, word.) and obviously you are sick at programming drums- what's the word with that remix EP you guys hinted at?? will you be doing some, if not many? also- how about providing the "stems" so to speak...

also- did you guys attempt to contact the peeps behind that badass-looking johnny depp Dillinger movie? seeing as how you were already on underworld, that movie could only be better by having a chase/tommy gun scene scored to Running Board....

I will prob do one. It's going to be pretty rad I think. We will prob put some stems up of the new record. Also have midi drums for ire works I would like to give to some peeps who are into that stuff. Never contacted the dillinger movie peeps. WE dont really aggressively try and do anything other then make music and play shows. Prob why we will never be a huge band. hummm any of you want to make some calls for us?

Any plans for more side projects/contributions to albums like the recent Ephel Duath album?

Any stand out elements in the new album such as the more electronic feel of Ire Works, also anything on the release similar to the When Acting/Nong Eye Gong set of songs?

Faith No More and DEP tour make it happen brah!

Can I have a job? I work for cheap.

Are we to excpect a new Direction musicly speaking?
Are you the type of band that tries to "reinvent" themselfs?
And are you going to tour South America anytime?
Are planning to kill some kitties on the new album and record it?

I can't really answer the direction question. We just try and make jams that at least we think kicks the shit out of every other band doing anything remotely similar to us and then actually write a few songs we would actually listen too haha. OF course that is just our opinion.
