THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN: Touring Plans Announced

Relapse Records recording artists THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN have announced forthcoming tour dates in support of their highly anticipated new album, "Miss Machine". "Miss Machine" will be released on July, 20 in the U.S. and August 2 in Europe.

THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN will kick off a five-week European headlining tour beginning June 5 with an appearance at the U.K.'s Download Festival, where the band will share the main stage alongside hard music giants LINKIN PARK, THE STOOGES, THE HIVES and DISTILLERS. In addition to DILLINGER's European headlining dates, the band will also make high-profile performances as part of Finland's Provinssirock Festival (alongside DAVID BOWIE, BLACK EYED PEAS, etc), Belgium's Graspop Festival (alongside IRON MAIDEN, MASTODON, MINISTRY) and France's Fury Festival (alongside SLIPKNOT, MESHUGGAH) among others. The 26-city tour will conclude on July 10 in Moutier, Switzerland.

Immediately following their European dates, DILLINGER will launch a month-long U.S. headlining tour. Titled the "F$#king With The Lights On" tour, the four-week trek will kick off on July 18h in Baltimore, Maryland and is scheduled to conclude August 17 in New York City with additional dates pending. Support on the DILLINGER tour will be provided by a host of up-and-coming acts including THE BRONX, PLANES MISTAKEN FOR STARS, DECEHEDRON, READ YELLOW, DAUGHTERS and others.

At the conclusion of the North American tour, DILLINGER will head back to Europe to perform amongst the headliners of Belgium's Pukkelpop and the United Kingdom's heralded Reading and Leeds Festivals (alongside THE WHITE STRIPES, MORRISSEY, THURSDAY) respectively.
