Ben Weinman Reflects On The Dillinger Escape Plan Following The Band’s End

The Dillinger Escape Plan came to an end following three farewell shows at Terminal 5 in New York City, NY in December 2017. Now that the band is officially gone, guitarist Ben Weinman has taken some time to reflect on his time in the group. You can read what he had to say in the below Instagram post:

The amygdala is a tiny, almond shaped structure deep inside the emotional part of your brain. It is visceral and autonomous Nature gave it to us for survival in a time when well thought out decisions would often have deadly consequences. Playing in @dillingerescapeplan would often put me in an extended state of fight or flight which enabled me to react almost exclusively on emotional impulse. The speed and intensity of our music and live shows were a catalyst for pure free expession with very little opportunity to reflect on my other daily stresses or even feel pain or fear. Thanks to all the people out there who contributed to allowing me this periodic meditation for the past 20 years. I will certainly miss this. Photo: @steveoshoots

The Dillinger Escape Plan Premiere New Video For “Limerent Death”

Greg Puciato commented:

“So… we could’ve gone the normal route and put a video out before our record came out, but the truth is we were so wiped out from the writing and the recording and the weight of the breakup that we just couldn’t give a shit at the time. Besides, we knew that nothing more conceptual than live footage ever felt right for this song anyway, and at the time, after being off tour for a while… well… there just wasn’t any.

So here’s a little something, directed by Oleg Rooz, who lived with us for our last European tour and shot endlessly. It’s only a year after our album came out and about a dozen shows away from the band finale, but hey… fashionably late.”
