Brian Benoit is a former guitarist for The Dillinger Escape Plan. Before playing in Dillinger, Brian played in Jesuit with eventual Converge bassist Nate Newton. He was also an early live-only member in Virginia youth crew revival band Time Flies. Brian joined Dillinger Escape Plan prior to recording Calculating Infinity and performed on the EP Irony Is a Dead Scene and LP Miss Machine.
In late 2004, just after the release of Miss Machine, Brian developed nerve damage in his left hand, which has kept him from performing live with the band since. He returned to the stage with them in 2005 as Keyboardist/Electronics, but only for a few months. He has been replaced on tour by James Love, and recently Jeff Tuttle. Ben Weinman has been the only guitar player on subsequent releases, however; frontman Greg Puciato has said that he still has a place in the band should he be able to return.
In late 2010 it was announced that Brian would play a reunion show with Jesuit. It is not known whether it will be a one off, or whether his hand has fully recovered.
