The Dillinger Escape Plan – Ire Works – CD


Ire Works is the third album by American mathcore band The Dillinger Escape Plan. The album was released on November 5 in the UK and on November 13, 2007 through Relapse Records in the U.S.[3] The album is Gil Sharone’s first and last album with the band. The album continues the more experimental sound introduced on Miss Machine, as well as somewhat returning to the sound heard on their debut in many of the songs. This is their first album since 2004’s Miss Machine, and their first without founding drummer Chris Pennie. Guitarist Ben Weinman plays all the guitar parts on the record, due to Brian Benoit’s injury. According to an interview in Terrorizer magazine, this is their last album on the Relapse Records label.[4] The album is also their most critically and commercially successful, debuting on the Billboard 200 at #142 with 7,000 copies scanned,[5] but was later corrected when it was revealed that Relapse somehow forgot to scan the pre-release album sales, which made the first week total actually around 11,000. The album features guest vocals by band’s former vocalist Dimitri Minakakis (on “Fix Your Face”) and Mastodon’s Brent Hinds (on “Horse Hunter”).
