A few nice Escape Plan images I found:

Inspirations, influences and illustrative facets lifted from a variety of places for a variety of reasons. I've just begun to love The Dillinger Escape Plan, but not until very recently. In high school when I first heard of them, I was still going through my hard rock/screamo phase and didn't really like the extreme discord and dissonant anger Dillinger offered. The music is just brutal, in-your-face, wall-to-wall noise, chaos and unbridled sonic fury at breakneck speed. So I wrestled for a time with how best to convey that brutality. I was stuck for a time until I remembered their song "Sunshine the Werewolf," re-watched The Devil's Rejects and came to the conclusion that Dillinger were dog (wolf) people (even before seeing their PETA interview). Add a bit of exploratory research on John Dillinger (spearheaded by my excitement for Public Enemies), and the the design just fell together beautifully. So this is how I realize The Dillinger Escape Plan's entity: a pissed off werewolf in a tattered suit, getting ready to unload a second volley of Tommy gun bullets into the faces of whatever unsuspecting unfortunates cross his path, parting the fur exploding from his collar to unleash a brutal, violent scream. I think it's safe to say this is one of my favorite posters so far. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The Dillinger Escape Plan are fucking beasts. They never stop moving on stage, they are incredibly tight despite having some of the most chaotic, fast-paced songs I've ever heard and they tickle that little spot in your heart that makes you want to reach out to the equally insane show-goers convulsing beside you and either give them a big, sweaty hug or kick the living shit out of them. And so it was. For an hour and a half The Basement turned from a small, humble music venue to a pulsing, breathing, tumultuous Ohio hell. All spearheaded by this crazy (but, as I found out after the show, strangely down-to-eath and chill) guy. Fresh from the enormous Bonnaroo, Dillinger played to a small club of probably less than a hundred people. Humble and completely unlike what I expected from a guy who half the time looks like he's about to explode onstage, Ben told me he enjoys playing smaller places because it gets them closer to people. Even if small stages like The Basement's make him feel like a bit of a caged rat. Which is understandable, as he took as many opportunities as possible to jump or lean offstage as possible. I can't even begin to describe how awesome this show was. So I'll just stop now and say it was. Go see Dillinger if they are playing in your area. Even if you don't know their music, their live shows is a machine; a raging ball of anger so technically proficient at what it does, you'd probably be an idiot to pass up seeing it in motion for only .
