We knew that they’d wrapped up recording their new album, but now it looks like The Dillinger Escape Plan have come up with an album title and release date for their fifth album. One of Us is the Killer will be coming out in May on Sumerian Records via the band’s Party Smasher imprint. It will be available in the rest of the world via Party Smasher’s partnership with BMG.
The album was once again recorded with producer Steve Evetts along with guitarist Ben Weinman.
