All good things must come to an end, and The Dillinger Escape Plan’s end is drawing ever nearer. Thankfully, Australia will receive one last tour from this intense, blistering New Jersey quintet in 2017, as they march further along to the grave.
As everyone and their dogs, cats, and all other household pets know or should know by now, The Dillinger Escape Plan is coming to an end soon.
For some out there, this is a highly emotional and potentially very bittersweet time, what with the band’s final and simply solid record, ‘Dissociation‘ dropping last year mere months after their lamented break-up announcement. Yet I think for most punters, peers and fans, right now is also a very exciting time at the bookend of the Dillinger’s incredible 20-year career, especially considering last night’s announcement that the musically chaotic and technical outfit will return to Australia once more to say their goodbyes.
There won’t so much be tissues in hands and shoulders to cry upon as there will drum kit pieces and bodies sprawled across stages as band members climb through crowds mid-song.
Presented by Destroy All Lines, Chugg Entertainment and triple j’s THE RACKET, come this October, TDEP will play five final, intimate shows in their highly anticipated yet emotional swansong run of our fine continent. And you had best fucking expect some of these shows to end up selling out! So, be sure to have your credit cards and Internet browsers ready come this Friday, April 21st at 9am local time when tickets go live via Destroy All Lines. Because you’d have to be Alex Jones levels of mental to miss a band like this, playing in venues like Melbourne’s Corner Hotel and Brisbane’s Max Watts, all for the final* time no less.
Check out the full list of TDEP’s Australian shows below and be sure to save the dates!

*Well, it says final, but that’s until a one-off or even a full-fledged reunion tour happens within a decade’s time.
