Dillinger Escape Plan Injury Forces Tour Cancelation

The Dillinger Escape Plan have canceled their upcoming European tour plans after guitarist Ben Weinman suffered an injury to his right hand and wrist.

Weinman will be spending the month of June recovering from his injury and the band plans to still take part in this year's Summer Slaughter festival tour with Animals As Leaders, Periphery, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Revocation, Aeon, Rings of Saturn and Thy Art Is Murder.

"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."

frontman Greg Puciato adds, "Leaving for tour knowing that we would be performing without all members on stage isn't something any of us are comfortable with. 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."

That will give him a little over a month to recover as the Summer Slaughter festival tour is set to kick off on July 19th in San Francisco, CA.
