blabbermouth.net, The Dillinger Escape Plan are writing a follow-up to their 2010 album Option Paralysis for release sometime in 2012. Founding guitarist Ben Weinman and drummer Billy Rymer began writing new material earlier in December. Weiman had the following to say about the writing process:
"Billy and I have been locked up in the Dillinger compound and things are starting to boil. There is nothing like that feeling when you realize... Yep, just when I thought I was drained, the juices are back in full force! The neighbors are definitely getting pissed, but we couldn't be more excited."
