The Dillinger Escape Plan have officially announced "One Of Us Is A Killer" as the title of their forthcoming fifth studio album. With an included album cover, the band has cited May as the release month via their own Party Smasher Inc. label, in partnership with Sumerian Records.

The album was recorded in Southern California with Steve Evetts (The Cure, Suicide Silence, Glassjaw) at the helm of production. The band is also preparing for a global tour set to start in the US this April.

"The album represents a new holistic pinnacle of the band's constantly evolving and engaging dynamics. One Of Us Is The Killer finds Weinman, Puciato, longtime bassist Liam Wilson and drummer Billy Rymer in top form, emphasizing Dillinger Escape Plan's fierce independence, staunch individualism and loyalty to their unique vision which has long followed them on-stage and off", states the announcement on the official website.

The group's latest studio effort, "Option Paralysis", was released back in March 2010 via Party Smasher Inc, receiving widespread acclaim from both the fans and the critics. It debuted at number 78 on the Billboard 200 list with 7,100 units sold in the first week of release.

    STOKED. Whatever they do, it will be totally unexpected. I can't wait for the tour either, I've seen them twice but both times in opening slots.
