This was an incredibly cool interview for me to host. On the day legendary metal band The Dillinger Escape Plan 1) performed their second sold-out show in a row in Toronto and 2) announced they were going on an extended hiatus, I had the pleasure interviewing TDEP’s founder and guitarist Ben Weinman and drummer Billy Rymer. Being a fan of this band for years, I was like everyone else when I read a headline that morning saying “Dillinger Escape Plan is bowing out” — alike most fans, I was wondering “is this the last time I’ll see them live?” and “will Dissociation be their last record?” With all of these questions in mind, I couldn’t wait to get some answers. Learn more about the band as we discuss their break-up, owning goats, crazy gigs, speeding on golf carts, losing shirts, only being good at music, and more in this exclusive interview. Dissociation is available for pre-order via iTunes here.
