Last year, The Dillinger Escape Plan announced both their latest album, Dissociation, and the fact that they’d be breaking up at the completion of the tour cycle. Since then, they’ve triumphantly taken a victory lap not just around the country, but around the world. And they’ve just announced that the final show of their career will take place at the end of the year. The show will take place on December 29th at Terminal 5, with Code Orange and Daughters as support. Here’s what vocalist Greg Puciato says of the final show and the decision for the New Jersey quintet to end their career in New York City:
“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.”
Tickets will go on sale this Friday, August 11th, at 10am, and you’ll be able to get them here. The Dillinger Escape Plan last played NYC at the about-to-close Webster Hall. With a capacity of 3,000, T5 is twice the size of Webster, but given that this is their last show, it’ll probably sell out.
