The Dillinger Escape Plan has posted footage online of the band performing live with Mike Patton, which can be viewed below. The band also issued the following road report:
“Wow this tour is really good. Red Fang are killing it and Mastodon is better than ever. It’s only been a week and a half and we already have had so many tour highlights. Rocking with Patton in San Fran was obviously one of them. Check out this video for a glimpse of that.
“Hanging out with our old friend Jello Biafra was stimulating as usual. We must have sat in our back lounge with our driver Tal for 2 hours at least talking about Wesley Willis. For those of you who don’t know who that is please educate yourself. Before becoming our baby sitter, Tal handled Wesley until his unfortunate death from leukemia in 2003. Jello released all his music on his label Alternative Tentacles. I have his bowling ball. The finger holes are so big I can probably fit my entire hand in one of them but it’s still an honor to possess it.
“It was also great meeting up with the Cavalera boys. We all hope to see Greg’s project with Max surface someday soon. We will surely keep you updated.
“So about G.T.O (Giraffe Tongue Orchestra), Brent and I have already got new material. The guy just spits out riffs like a riff machine. Day off tomorrow in Colorado and we shall be working all day on sweet sweet melodies sure to make the young girls cry and the old one scream (not necessarily in that order).
“Thanks again for coming out to these shows and representing. This isn’t exactly a typical Dillinger crowd but you guys are really helping to make these shows amazing. Just about out of these Dillinger/Botch Calculating Infinity European posters but we are holding on to a few limited edition Option Paralysis boxes sets for this tour. Just a few per show if you are interested. Shit, Jello has one.”
