During one of their farewell shows, The Dillinger Escape Plan will be performing their “Irony Is A Dead Scene” EP live with Mike Patton (Faith No More, Dead Cross, etc.). That set will take place at the December 27 show at Terminal 5 in New York City, NY. God Mother will serve as support. The band’s other farewell concerts will be held at the same venue on December 28 and 29. Code Orange and Daughters will open on those dates.
The Dillinger Escape Plan have premiered a new video for “Limerent Death,“ via Revolver. This song is from the band’s final album “Dissociation.”

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.”
Young musicians from the School Of Rock in Easton, PA, played a cover of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s “Setting Fire To Sleeping Giants,“ and caught the attention of the band. The group shared a video of the performance, along with a statement. You can find both of those below:
The Dillinger Escape Plan said the following:
“There’s a lot of covers out there, sometimes a friend or someone we know texts something to us to check out. Always an honor, and definitely always surreal. Today we’ve spent more time than normal talking about this one that came our way. Something about it.
Remembering the feeling of just getting started…on our own before we even knew each other…being thirteen and sweating out Nirvana covers in a hot air condition-less basement with the whole world in front of you and all of the fire and attitude inside of you, and even afterwards early on just having fun with a Billy Idol or Guns N Roses cover(anyone remember those?) now and then. But yeah….for lots of reasons…this is cool to see.
Edit: That jacket and those windmills though A++
Edit 2: Actually can someone please be so kind and track the singer down and have her post in the comments so we can get in touch and bring her onstage at one of the NYC shows?”

Greg Puciato commented:
“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.
So many incredible shows, unforgettable memories on and offstage, and familiar faces both backstage and in the crowd. Add to that the fact that geographically its the one city that makes the most sense for anyone traveling from the east or west, or up the coast, and this was kind of a no brainer from the beginning.”
