"Farewell, Mona Lisa", a brand new track from critically acclaimed rockers THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, was premiered this Christmas exclusively on Sirius XM's Liquid Metal. A low-quality recording of the song can now be heard in the YouTube clip below."Farewell, Mona Lisa" will be made available as a digital single on January 19. The song comes off THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN's new album, "Option Paralysis", which will be released on March 23, 2010. The opus, recorded in Orange County, California with longtime collaborator/producer Steve Evetts (THE USED, GLASSJAW, EVERY TIME I DIE), will be the debut release for the band's brand new label Party Smasher Inc./Season Of Mist. Other tracks set to appear on the CD include "Good Neighbor", "Gold Teeth On A Bum", "Crystal Morning", "I Wouldn't if You Didn't" and "A Room Full of Eyes". According to guitarist Ben Weinman, "I Wouldn't if You Didn't" was one of the last songs written for the album, "taking DILLINGER to places [we] have never gone before." Meanwhile, "A Room Full of Eyes", which Ben dubs as a favorite on the album, is "one of the most intense songs we have ever written." U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine recently reported that "Option Paralysis" will feature a guest appearance by 70-year-old Mike Garson, who has previously contributed to DAVID BOWIE's "Aladdin Sane" and NINE INCH NAILS' "The Fragile" albums. Puciato previously stated about the band's new songs, "Wait 'til you hear what we've got for you now. The vibe when we recorded 'Ire Works' was defined by a feeling of struggle and hope and just staying alive in the face of almost falling apart, feeling triumphant in making it through the previous couple of years, and now the vibe is OK, now we're just gonna fuck everyone up.'"
