THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Releases “Happiness Is A Smile” VideoFriday, 11th April 2014
New Jersey metallers THE DILLINGER ESCAPE plan have released the video for “Happiness is a Smile,” which can be viewed below.
“Happiness Is A Smile” was made available on limited-edition colored seven-inch vinyl via the band’s merchandise table and as a cassingle through the group’s VIP packages during THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN’s U.S. tour, which kicked off on April 3 in New York City.
The artwork for “Happiness Is A Smile” was created by BBC Radio One presenter and occult artist Daniel Carter.
Says THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN: “So we wrote a song. Rather than wait for a new album and try to figure out how to make it make sense as part of a group of other songs that would be written later, we recorded it instantly so it could be captured as its own statement. We pressed it on a limited-edition 7″ vinyl, in a quantity of 500 (never to be pressed again), and have it available on this current tour. It’s called ‘Happiness Is A Smile’. We’ve been playing it every night. Here it is.”
The band’s fifth full-length album, One Of Us Is The Killer, was released last year via Sumerian Records.
