Billy Rymer (born December 10, 1984) is an American musician, most notable for being the drummer for the band The Dillinger Escape Plan. He is the second newest and youngest member of the band.

When Rymer had heard from a teacher that the band was auditioning drummers, he promptly made cover videos and posted them to YouTube, which got the attention of bassist Liam Wilson (Rymer claims to have learned the songs in three-second increments, writing out each part and subsequently piecing them together). After a trial of auditions, guitarist Ben Weinman invited him to Australia to play Soundwave Music Festival, and in early 2009 it was revealed that Rymer would officially replace Gil Sharone as the new drummer.
Later on in 2010, Rymer began playing with NK (then known as North Korea), featuring members of Envy on the Coast and The Rivalry. NK has released two efforts, an EP Basement Tapes Vol. 1 and a full-length record Nothing To Be Gained Here.
In April 2014, Rymer had begun involvement in a new project, titled No Machine. To date, they have released one EP, Volume One.
