Interview: Ben Wienman from Dillinger Escape Plan on

08 Apr

The written version of my interview with founder member and guitarist Ben Weinman from The Dillinger Escape Plan is up online now at

In a scene where many bands tend to follow the latest musical trend and the industry doesn’t know which way is up, The Dillinger Escape Plan stand clearly out from the crowd. Formed in the late 1990s, the group has gone from strength to strength thanks to an unwavering self-reliance and unique ability to churn out some of the most twisted, ugly riffs available. Founder member and guitarist of the New Jersey band Ben Weinman talks to LifeMusicMedia’s Ben Hosking about band dynamics, society’s relationship with technology, illegal downloading and their new album ‘Option Paralysis’.
