The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced a US tour which will take place in October and November.

They’ll hit the road in support of their upcoming sixth album Dissociation, which is due out on October 14. The shows will come after their previously announced appearance at Chicago’s Douglas Park on September 16. The new tour dates can be seen in bold below.

The New Jersey outfit recently announced they’ll go on indefinite hiatus following the tour cycle for the follow-up to 2013’s One Of Us Is The Killer though vocalist Greg Puciato recently referred to it as a “breakup.”

He said: “There’s literally nothing on the record referencing our breakup. It’s not even something I was thinking about when I was writing.

“The band have been the most important thing in my life for the 15 years I’ve been a part of it. We all live in different states, but it’s always there, every single day. I’m always thinking about it. I’m always communicating with people about it.”

Speaking of the decision, he said: “No big, calamitous thing happened. It’s just a natural part of the trajectory of individuals’ personal lives and goals not lining up with the lifestyle of doing this. Shit happens.”

The Dillinger Escape Plan recently enlisted the help of a saxophonist and an audience member to fill in for Puciato when he missed their appearance at the 7th annual Gwar-BQ festival in Richmond, Virginia last weekend.

They’ve also announced an intimate warm-up show at London’s Old Blue Last tomorrow (August 24) ahead of this weekend’s Reading and Leeds festivals. Tickets are sold out.

Dissociation can be pre-ordered via SRC Records and iTunes.
