THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN ENJOY LOBSTER, WANT YOU TO NAME THEIR NEW ALBUM

lobsterTwitter is the new Facebook is the new MySpace is the new black. At least in this nascent state of the Twitter explosion, we can be fairly certain the actual band members are behind their Twitter walls, happily tweeting away as they see fit and ignoring the rest. Take The Dillinger Escape Plan’s (@dillingerescpln) latest update:

Collins Pub in Morris plains, every Monday night Lobster for $11.95. Be there if you want to eat giant sea creatures with me and Billy.

Sounds fun. Gotta be Ben Weinman, right? Every good Jew loves lobster. If I lived in Jersey I’d totally hit that shit up! Mmmm, lobster. Interesting fact: the lobster pictured at left is 50 pounds and was named “Lemmy” by the man who caught it.

But more importantly (and really, very few things are more important than lobster), DEP solicited fan suggestions for naming their next album on a Tweet posted last week:

what should we call our next album?

I’m gunning for Lake Bukkake, and I told them such. If ever there was a fitting tribute to this legendary but mysterious NYC grindcore unit, a DEP album title would be it. Follow Dillinger Escape Plan on Twitter, and vote Lake Bukkake 2009! I’m completely serious. And if you haven’t already, follow us on Twitter too.
