You know what's better than one reunion show from The Dillinger Escape Plan? Three reunion shows! Yes, the The Dillinger Escape Plan has added June 22 and 23 shows also at the Brooklyn Paramount in Brooklyn, NY. The June 22 show features The Callous Daoboys and Deadguy, while the June 23 show features all the openers. The shows are now:
6/21 Brooklyn Paramount – Brooklyn, NY (w/ Car Bomb & Candy)
6/22 Brooklyn Paramount – Brooklyn, NY (w/ The Callous Daoboys & Deadguy)
6/23 Brooklyn Paramount – Brooklyn, NY (w/ Car Bomb, Candy, The Callous Daoboys & Deadguy)
The band will play Calculating Infinity in its entirety at both shows for the first time ever with co-founder and original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis. Backing Minakakis will be founding guitarist Ben Weinman, bassist Liam Wilson, drummer Billy Rymer. Openers include Car Bomb and Candy.
"It's been a long time coming for this opportunity to perform in a project I helped create over 25 years ago," said Minakakis. "Having the chance to celebrate 25 years of Calculating Infinity with my closest friends in life is just a dream turned real. I'm looking forward to seeing all the old faces, as well as all the new ones. The Dillinger Escape Plan has always been more than just a band. We were a force of nature. This reunion show is our way of thanking the fans who have stood by us and the album we made in a small basement in NJ all those years ago."
"Amped to go party like it’s 1999 again and give this album the birthday party it deserves!" added Wilson. "These songs are still unfuckwithable and as a musician, it’s rad to have the opportunity to get back under the hood of this album and revisit my salad days, this time with more seasoning. Dimitri always had such a menacing presence and venomous voice, it’s gonna be killer to rip these songs with him up there with us!"
"Dimitri has remained one of my longest and closest friends," added Weinman. "Even after leaving the band, his support and contributions through his work on our first albums have kept an everlasting spark in my heart for what we did together. I remember the first day we met. He was the new guy in school and I drove by him and gave him the finger. Then I reversed the car and asked him if he wanted to hang out and make a band. I said, you look like a singer dude. We could have never imagined what an impact that moment would have."
He continued: "While we are all very happy with the resolve of the band in 2017 with Greg, something still feels unsaid as far as the Dimitri era of the band and with so many people talking about the album and after performing a handful of first album performances with Suicidal Tendencies, it just all made sense. This needed to happen!"
