As a vinyl collector and a massive fan of The Dillinger Escape Plan, I was pretty bummed that the group’s new single ‘Happiness Is A Smile’ was going to be released exclusively on vinyl through the band’s merch table during their latest run of dates with Trash Talk, Retox, and SHINING. The tour was coming nowhere close to home, so I just assumed it wasn’t meant to be.
Thankfully, Dillinger are remaining open and accessible and have published a music video of the track featuring footage of the band’s notoriously “involved” live act. The track itself is relatively slower than your standard Dillinger fare, but ‘Happiness is a Smile’ is massively heavy. Check it out below.
