The Dillinger Escape Plan are breaking up after three final shows at NYC's Terminal 5 on 12/27, 12/28, and 12/29. The first show will have DEP and Mike Patton performing their 2002 collaborative EP together, with God Mother opening, and the second two have Code Orange and Daughters opening. All three shows sold out a while back, but tickets are back on sale for all three. Act quick!

DEP also gave what they're saying is their "final" interview, on Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich's Beats 1 show. The interview was transcribed for Revolver, and here's an excerpt:

WEINMAN: No one will ever be able to say, "Dillinger was ..." No one's going to say, "Oh, that band's still making albums? I remember when ..." It's never going to be, "I remember when they were this ..." It's always going to be, like, "This band was this thing."

PUCIATO: You can show them the band as if the band is a body of work.

WEINMAN: It's this thing. You can look at it. It was this album to this album. It's a piece of work — boom, there it is.

PUCIATO: We decided that [the decision to break up] changed the way [Dissociation] flowed, the way we sequenced it. Because you're no longer sequencing the end of the album, you're sequencing the end of the band. But the incredible thing that I think has happened is that we've all gone through rapid personal growths around the time of making the decision because your body or your brain can no longer rely on the band for so much of its sense of identity, so you instantly start to grow so rapidly in different areas. We've all become a lot more mature.
