We’re about a month and a half away from The Dillinger Escape Plan’s last show ever. It’s been in the works since right before Dissociation was released, last year, and on December 29th, they’ll be playing Terminal 5 for the last time ever. While that show sold out quickly, they added another the day before, which also sold out. A third show, on December 27th, was very close to selling out as well, and as of right now, we’d be surprised if it isn’t already. That’s because Mike Patton is going to join DEP to perform their breakthrough EP and collaboration Irony is a Dead Scene.
It’s not surprise that Patton and Faith No More are in the band’s DNA, but it was surprising when Patton lent his voice to the 2002 EP in between Dimitri Minakakis and Greg Puciato. The four-song EP features three originals and a cover of Aphex Twin’s “Come to Daddy,” and it really elevated the band to a place beyond the math metal fans that it had at the time, and served as a turning point to both their popularity and their sound in general. Ipecac signing Godmother will be opening.
