Dillinger Escape Plan Guitarist Breaks Hand
Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman has broken his hand, forcing him to sit at the side of the stage at their Orion Music festival performance at the weekend.

Now they've been forced to cancel their summer European tour because of the damage to his hand and wrist.

Discussing their wild live shows with the Inside the Circle Pit radio show (via Blabbermouth), Weinman said: "We just like t have complete free expression and try not to go too far and kill anybody or ourselves. But we think there needs to be bands out there who consider the live performance as part of their art and their expression."

In a statement after his accident, Weinman said: "I'm heartbroken that we will miss these shows because we were all looking forward to them a great deal," Weinman said. "Obviously nobody likes being injured. I'm looking forward to performing on Summer Slaughter at full capacity and we will be back in Europe this fall on our headlining tour."
