I've written some words on two shows I attended on Saturday. You can read my thoughts here. After reading, I want to discuss this question of longevity: When did punk rock become safe? Is it still safe? Do you think less chances are taken to expand what the idea of punk could or should be, or do you think there continues to be an expansion of the undefinable term? What bands do you feel will be remembered for their music and not their actions and/or vice versa ten years from now? 20? Who will your kids look back and see as influential?
A fan made video for the Dillinger Escape Plan song "Dead As History" can be seen in the replies. It caught the attention of DEP's bassist Liam and the producer of their upcoming Option Paralysis, Steve Evetts.
According to singer Greg Puciato's personal blog, Dillinger Escape Plan is writing for a new album to be recorded in 2009, and is organizing worldwide tour dates for next year as well. The blog also details some new information on the band's side projects.
