THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN guitarist Ben Weinman has denied online rumors that drummer Gil Sharone has quit the band."He didn't leave and we didn't kick him out," Weinman tells Kerrang! magazine. "He will be busy, though, working with his other band (STOLEN BABIES) a lot over the next year, so I am talking to other dudes both for DILLINGER possibilities and just for me to play with on other creative projects. We still may be touring and writing with Gil, though. Kinda in the air. No big drama though or anything." Although nothing has been confirmed, drummer Marco Minneman (NECROPHAGIST, EPHEL DUATH) has reportedly indicated that he plans to work with THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN during the coming months. Raanen Bozzio, son of drumming legend Terry Bozzio, is also said to be a candidate for the job. Fresh off the 2008 Warped Tour and a cross-country tour with CAVALERA CONSPIRACY, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN is currently home in the early stages of writing for its follow-up album to "Ire Works".
