Less than 24 hours after announcing a "final" tour, The Dillinger Escape Plan was already backpedaling on just how "final" that would really be.

In an interview with Altpress.com, Greg Puciato commented that "No one in this band is dumb enough to say something’s ever really done" and "So the only thing you can do to make yourself not look like an idiot and not have to eat your own words is to leave it open for possibilities, because that’s reality. People are done when they’re dead."

He also goes on to mention that there are still "hundreds" of shows before the planned breakup even initaties. Excerpts from the interview can be read below.

Altpress: Do you have plans for life post-Dillinger?

Possibly, but who knows how we’re going to feel after the 200 more shows we still have to play. That’s what I mean: We’re about to announce our breakup, and I’m not even thinking about it. The only thing I care about is that the record is being announced and the release date is being announced and we’re finally going to have the fucking first song off the record for people to listen to properly, instead of a radio stream. I’m not thinking about a breakup that’s not going to initiate until hundreds of shows from now. And definitely, creatively, I don’t know what the fuck I’m gonna be thinking two years from now when we finally play our last show.

Altpress: So you’re leaving things open?

Well, yeah, because no one in this band is dumb enough to say something’s ever really done. If you’re smart and you look at every other band that’s done this, I mean, Guns ‘N Roses are fucking back, for Christ’s sake. Van Halen already came back. So the only thing you can do to make yourself not look like an idiot and not have to eat your own words is to leave it open for possibilities, because that’s reality. People are done when they’re dead.

The band will release new album "Disassociation" on October 14th, 2016 and first new track "Limerent Death" can be heard below.
