Is Converge’s Kurt Ballou Working on the New Dillinger Escape Plan Album?

So, Converge guitarist and producer Kurt Ballou posted the below photo to his Instagram account. At a glance, it looks like he’s just having fun with the numbers 666… but The PRP points out that the name of the file on which he’s working is “DEP 2016.” Since we know that The Dillinger Escape Plan is working on a new album, it seems entirely plausible that Ballou is involved in some capacity.

I don’t know what it is, but compression ratios of 6.66 just feel right to me for drums. #fabfilter #666 #compression

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you about Ballou’s talents as a producer, engineer, and mixer — at this point, everyone in the extreme music community knows he’s the bomb. Really, I just hope this somehow results in a DEP/Converge tour.
