The Press Release:

The Dillinger Escape Plan Announce 3rd and Final NYC Show

If you’ve been following our reports closely, you probably remember that it was only about a week ago that I shared the news and the poster for the Dillinger Escape Plans “second to last show” which was being referred to as “The Day Before The End” in terms of appearances by the legendary musical chaos that this band is. You see, the DEP had recently announced their own personal ending of the musical book that they had created and crushed us with for many years. I shared the press release from their team on THIS LINK in case you didn’t see it for some reason.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since this is the third announcement for the bands last go-round, I don’t have much more to add on the matter. I do hope to get to the final show as a member of the regions music press because that is the show to document on the website. Let’s see what happens. It’s safe to say that the Dillinger Escape Plan will leave a mark on our Metal selves with these now three final appearances. Over the years I’ve only ever been a casual fan who would see them when the means and time allowed me to do so. How many shows have you took part in over the years? That’s some crazy stuff live isn’t it? I joked in one of the other posts about checking on your insurance policy before heading to one of their gigs and as I cited then I was only half-kidding about this. That’s all I have for this one and unless the band adds a fourth show to the mix I will not be back about them unless I end up reviewing one of the performances or anything else that they might be involved in before the end times. See you soon I am sure.

The Dillinger Escape Plan Adds “Day Before” The End Show In NYC

I guess it was about a week ago that I shared the press release that lined out how The Dillinger Escape Plan was calling it a career and hosting one final show in NYC at Terminal 5. If you missed that posting please click HERE to be up to speed on the matter. Now, as you can see by the poster graphic below, the band has added a second show to the mix but this one will take place BEFORE the Final Show. I have heard that the last show sold out rather quickly so you better get on point if you want to see them ever again.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’m not really going to add all that much here besides stressing that if you really want to see this band one more time then you best get on the ticket selling stuff so you secure your spot. Let’s not find the scalpers getting all of them and costing the true fans an arm and a leg. I am glad that the band added a second night, which on the calendar plays as the first show because their fans are going to want to let loose with reckless abandon one more time and then again for the final show. That’s all I have to say about the matter. Unless the band adds a third show to the mix. Who knows, perhaps a full-scale tour will be worked out and lead up to this grand finale in NYC. Only time will tell and since music is as unpredictable as the weather, you never know. See you next time.

The Dillinger Escape Plan Announce Final Show Ever!

They’ve said that “all good things must come to an end” and now this all too common phrase comes for the lads in the DEP or Dillinger Escape Plan. Yeah, they are calling it a career with a single show in our own Metal Metropolis and you can indulge in the full press release down below. Don’t worry, I’ll close out with some additional thoughts as usual.

The Press Release:
The end of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN may be nigh, but the progressive metal pioneers are going out in a blaze of glory. Their final show has been set for December 29th at New York City’s Terminal 5 and it is sure to be a night to remember. Supporting the band at this show will be Code Orange and Daughters.

Dubbed in recent days ‘Among The Greatest Of All Time’ by Metalsucks and one of ‘10 Best Live Bands in Metal Right Now’ by LA Weekly, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN’s innovative sound and unpredictable, edgy live show, has enabled the band to make a lasting mark in the heavy music world. Greg Puciato (vocals), Ben Weinman (guitar), Liam Wilson (bass), Billy Rymer (drums) and Kevin Antreassian (guitar) are going out on a real high note 20 years after the band’s journey began.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This convention intrigues me because as many readers of our site know, we have been attending both NY Comic Con and Toy Fair for a few years now and each of these massive events showcases things for the gamer at large. Now I should admit that I am not the biggest gamer because I am generally one of those who loses his weapon or lives way too fast in all the games that I try my hands at. With things like “Doom” I will wander off into the wrong room or in “Resident Evil” I will ALWAYS run into the worst of the worst with limited energy or a terrible weapon and so on. It’s horrible when you are trying to vie against those friends who can play for an hour before it’s your next turn. I was fair to decent on my old Colecovision console and that makes me more of an interested observer to the goings on nowadays when it comes to gaming. This convention sounds fascinating and seems to run at the same time as the Liberty City Anime Con which we are already attending as representatives of the media. If I can work out some sort of brief exploration at T5 for this event, you can guarantee that I will post up my images for your perusal along with any other coolness I should see. So tell me players, is this something you are interested in at all? Does PiercingMetal need to include more stuff for the gaming society in our ToyBox category of posts? Please let me know down in the comments below.
