The Dillinger Escape Plan Comment On Their Newly Announced ‘No Values’ Reunion Show


As it currently stands The Dillinger Escape Plan haven’t performed live since officially hanging it up back in 2017. While the celebrated mathcore outfit announced a round of “Calculating Infinity” 25th anniversary shows for this summer, those shows will be taking place with that album’s original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis returning to the fold.

Today, February 20th saw the group announced for a sole West Coast reunion show, which also led to some questions on who and what will be performed. If you’ve been closely following the band then you you’re likely aware of the strained relations between guitarist Ben Weinman and vocalist Greg Puciato.

As such, if you were hoping for Puciato to miraculously return for this new West Coast performance, it currently doesn’t seem likely. As clarified today by the band themselves, their appearance at the first-ever ‘No Values‘ festival will also not be a ‘Calculating Infinity‘ 25th anniversary set either. Instead, the band expect to perform an altered early setlist with Minakakis.

Their statement reads as follows:

“Dear West Coast DEP fans….

We have been getting a lot of messages from people on the West Coast who are unable to make it to our Calculating 25 shows. So here you go, guys! When first asked to play the new @goldenvoice #novalues festival, we initially said no. But then we realized what an amazing opportunity this was to not only do a really special warm-up show for our West Coast family, but also to be part of one of the most epic lineups of all time. Truly historical.

We did, however, want to announce that we will not be doing our full calculating infinity anniversary set, nor will we have the limited merch, and rare #Dillingerescapeplan memorabilia available until the Brooklyn Paramount shows.

This will, however, be an opportunity to see us shake off the rust and maybe even perform a few early tracks we won’t be playing in NY.
Any requests?”
