The Dillinger Escape Plan

Despised Icon finish recording of upcoming new album!

despised_iconMontreal extreme metallers DESPISED ICON have finished tracking their much anticipated still untitled new album, which will surface later this year on
Century Media Records.

The band states:

“Guitar solos are done! Check out this week’s studio update to see the latest shred. This means we’re finally done recording our new record! The whole thing is being mixed right now by Zeuss (Hatebreed, The Acacia Strain, Whitechapel) in Massachusetts and the rough mixes sound killer so far! Mastering will be done in about a week by Alan Douches (Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Nile).
Get stoked guys!”
