The Dillinger Escape Plan told fans that their 2016 album Dissociation is their final one, and that this year’s tour will also be their last. Dissociation is the band’s sixth studio album. With the release of the album, guitarist and founding member Ben Weinman said the band wanted to “go out while we're still on top." The band has now announced the plans for the final show.
It will take place on December 29 at New York’s Terminal 5, and the band is definitely going out with a bang. Code Orange and Daughters are opening, and Dillinger is set to close the night with a final epic performance.
The group is well known for their killer live shows. “Leaving it all on the stage” has become the catch-phrase for their energetic and chaotic performances, and the final show is likely to be described in the same way.
Frontman Greg Putiato explained the location choice for the last show saying, “For me, in terms of shows, New York has always been one city on a short list of them, where every Dillinger show felt like a homecoming. Maybe it’s the proximity to New Jersey, maybe because we’re all east coast natives, maybe for me it’s largely because it was the location of my first show with the band back in 2001, and maybe a lot of it is just the overall energy of the city itself.”
The band is currently on tour in Europe. They will also be traveling to Australia, New Zealand, and Japan in October. Check out dates here.
