The Dillinger Escape Plan played their final show at Terminal 5 in New York City on December 29, 2017. The band's members have all since gone on to do other projects and that's been that. Now in an interview with Brooklyn Vegan, vocalist Greg Puciato can't stress enough how little a chance there is for a Dillinger Escape Plan reunion.
Puciato said the band's final tour was a "miserable process," saying the whole thing felt like a puneral parade and that "our audiences were sad and making us question if we were doing the right thing." He added that after the final show, he felt excited about making music again and didn't want to spend so much time in the future on one singular project.
"I didn't want to spend so much time on one thing anymore, and I think all my activity post-Dillinger is proof of that. I've put out books, solo music, Killer Be Killed put out a new record, as did The Black Queen. None of this would happen if I was out there playing 'Panasonic Youth' 200 nights in a row again. We don't talk beyond catching up nowadays, but everyone's moving and doing something. Not necessarily musically, but they're all becoming who they're supposed to be. We've grown more in the last 4 years than in the previous 15, at least on a psychological level.
"There has been zero conversation about reuniting Dillinger. If that were to happen, however, it would not be on a full-time basis. We have our lives that are more developed without it. We have a billion fucking other components to our life. When we initially walked off stage, I and everyone else was happy to be over with it.
"Now, I can perceive a possible situation where it would be sustainable for us, but I cannot stress enough that there has been zero conversation between any of us about reuniting or doing anything. I don't think, legally, there even is an entity known as The Dillinger Escape Plan anymore, so we are currently as dissolved as you can be."
