The Dillinger Escape Plan brought their career to an end on December 29th, 2017 with a farewell show at Terminal 5 in NYC. Live footage of the entire set filmed has been uploaded below:
The setlist for The Dillinger Escape Plan's farewell performance ran as follows: More...
Back in August of 2016, The Dillinger Escape Plan announced a planned breakup following the release of the "Disassociation" album and a bout of final U.S. touring. Although the band walked back that breakup talk and has been active for the full year since then, this week a trio of NYC shows have been revealed that are billed as Dillinger's final performances.
Originally just one show, two more were added when each subsequent show sold out immediately. It's unclear if any additional appearances will be announced, but it seems like a distinct possibility if this one sells out as well. Details on the remaining DEP shows can be found at the band's Facebook profile here. More...
A bunch of new bands have been announced for the 22nd edition of Brutal Assault, which takes place this year in Fortress Josefov near Jaromer in the Czech Republic on August 9-12. Returning once more are heavy-weights Hatebreed, who last graced the fortress stages in 2012 and 2013. This is reportedly in response to festival-goers requests for more hardcore in the line-up.
The Dillinger Escape Plan will be including the festival in their series of farewell dates. It looks like the band's appearance here won't be affected by the bus crash that caused some European tour dates to be cancelled last month. Dillinger last played Brutal Assault in 2015.
Thrash veterans Overkill, touring in support of their recently released 18th studio album, "The Grinding Wheel", have also been added. No stranger to the fortress stage, Overkill last appeared at the festival in 2013.
Helsinki's Wintersun are newcomers to Brutal Assault, appearing for the first time. Can we assume they will be playing material from their long-awaited third album? There's no official word as yet. More...

After a serious bus crash in Poland over the weekend, The Dillinger Escape Plan has now issued this update about the situation:
"By now I'm sure many of you have already heard the news, but we wanted to communicate to you all directly. Not just to express the fact that nobody is in critical condition, but to express our gratitude to the fans who have seen us or who were going to see us on this tour, the crew who was also in the accident with us and part of why things have been going so smoothly, the various promoters and venue staff, Live Nation Poland who have been so helpful in the last 38 hours, the many police and medics and emergency workers who came to the scene, the hospital workers, and the friends and family who have reached out to us personally since yesterday morning.
"We were in the middle of playing some of our favorite shows we've ever played, and having a better time on and off stage than we have in a long time.
"We were ripped out of sleep at 8:25AM to what still feels like a lucid nightmare. The cacophony of metal bending and things breaking and people screaming and what felt like being hit by a missile. Without going into detail, not everyone is out of the hospital yet, some of us are hurt worse than others.
"Questions like why did this happen, why are we alive and others not, why are the people from the Bay Area fire dead, why at all is anyone here or not. What the hell is all of this. Remember how valuable life is. We are all lucky to be alive. To just have any time at all.
"Anyway, thanks to you all for caring. We were truly having an amazing time and we're blessed to have you all, such a high caliber group of people. It's been an honor to play these shows, but we unfortunately have to cancel the remainder of them. We will reschedule every one that we can, and we'll update more when we can." More...
While touring across Europe in support of latest album "Dissociation" (reviewed here), The Dillinger Escape Plan has been involved with a major accident. According to ITV.com the band's vehicle crashed while traveling to Krakow. ITV reported:
Aneta Wlazlowska, a spokeswoman for Radomsko police, said the band members were not seriously hurt but were taken to hospital for further tests. She said the most injured person in the crash was the driver of the lorry that hit the band's tour bus, which was parked partly on the road and hard shoulder. The New Jersey band were due to play in Krakow on Sunday, but the gig has been cancelled.
Following the initial news, Metal Injection issued this statement after speaking with DEP's Ben Weinman:
I spoke with Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman about the current situation, and he said "Everyone is alive, a few injuries, but it could be much worse." He explained that the bus was hit from the back, with the truck smashing through their gear before continuing to plow into the bus itself. The impact was serious and banged them up pretty good. The whole situation sounds horrific.
Unfortunately, it seems as though the fate of the band's gear was not as lucky as the members, as you can see from the phone photo Ben had sent. Needless to say, the show in Krakow has been canceled. No word yet on what will happen with the rest of the tour. The next scheduled show is this Tuesday in Germany. We're just happy everyone in the band is alive, and wish them a speedy recovery!
We'll update you with more info when a statement is officially released from any of the Dillinger Escape Plan channels. More...
