The Dillinger Escape Plan To Tour Well Into 2017


It’s no secret that The Dillinger Escape Plan will be calling it quits in the months to come, but it would appear that the touring cycle for their newly released farewell album “Dissociation” will extend well into next year. A new interview Blunt conducted with frontman Greg Puciato has word that the band hope to tour Australia around August or September of 2017. The months in-between should presumably be filled with plenty of touring before the band eventually play their final show—a date for which has yet to even be set. Puciato also told the site of calling it quits:

“I think it’s gonna be the end. We’re definitely winding down. That was the plan going into the album, and it’s still the plan now. Unless there’s a massive change in collective thought, that’s just the way things are. I think we’ve reached the point where, for the first time, it makes a little bit of sense.

I think we reached a point in our individual lives – musically, lyrically, and somatically – and we decided that if there was ever a time to take a break, now is it; now’s the time to see what happens to our lives in the absence of this giant thing that confines everything.

Every single day when we wake up, [the band] takes up all of our time and energy, and it’s been that way for seventeen, eighteen, nineteen years for some of us. What do you do when that thing isn’t there anymore? I don’t think we wanna leave it until we’re 60 to find out.”

For more from Puciato on that, head to Blunt. At present the band are touring the U.S. with O’Brother, Cult Leader on one of their final tours.
