The Dillinger Escape Plan’s plans seemed to have escaped them (Ha!). Due to guitarist Ben Weinman’s recent hand and wrist injury, the band has canceled its upcoming summer dates in Europe, but hopes to have him return for the fall. Read the full band statement after the jump.
The Dillinger Escape Plan regretfully must cancel their upcoming summer European festival and club appearances due to an injury sustained by guitarist and co-founder Ben Weinman on his right hand and wrist. He will spend June recovering.
“I’m heartbroken that we will miss these shows because we were all looking forward to them a great deal,” Weinman said. “Obviously nobody likes being injured. I’m looking forward to performing on Summer Slaughter at full capacity and we will be back in Europe this fall on our headlining tour.”
“Leaving for tour knowing that we would be performing without all members on stage isn’t something any of us are comfortable with,” added frontman Greg Puciato. “Ben is going to take the next month to heal and we’ll be ready to demolish Summer Slaughter and return to Europe in the fall with all systems loaded and ready to go.
