The Dillinger Escape Plan Reunite with Original Vocalist to Mark 25th Anniversary of 'Calculating Infinity'

- By Ramon Gonzales

What was initially only a one night event has now swelled to a three-night engagement set for June in Brooklyn, NY will see a full performance of the band's 1999 debut.

UPDATE: Due to incredible demand, The Dillinger Escape Plan have added two additional shows to their run at Brooklyn Paramount in Brooklyn, NY. The original line-up will also be performing on 6/22 with The Callous Daoboys and Deadguy as well as 6/23 with Deadguy, Candy, Car Bomb & The Callous Daoboys. 

Beloved mathcore unit The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced plans to commemorate the 25th anniversary of their seminal 1999 debut, Calculating Infinity, with a special one-night only event set for June 21st, 2024 at the Brooklyn Paramount in Brooklyn, NY. 

Reuniting with original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis, the line-up rounded out by guitarist Ben Weinman, bassist Liam Wilson and drummer Billy Rymer will convene for what is being billed as Calculating 25. The show will feature a performance, in full, of the mathcore masterclass and will feature support from Car Bomb and Candy. 

Minakakis shared of the announcement, "It’s been a long time coming for this opportunity to perform in a project I helped create over 25 years ago. Having the chance to celebrate 25 years of Calculating Infinity with my closest friends in life is just a dream turned real. I’m looking forward to seeing all the old faces, as well as all the new ones. The Dillinger Escape Plan has always been more than just a band. We were a force of nature. This reunion show is our way of thanking the fans who have stood by us and the album we made in a small basement in NJ all those years ago.”

Guitarist Ben Weinman also weighed in and explained how his time with Suicidal Tendencies ultimately made an impact on his decision to move forward with the 25th anniversary celebration of the album. 

“Dimitri has remained one of my longest and closest friends. Even after leaving the band, his support and contributions through his work on our first albums have kept an everlasting spark in my heart for what we did together. I remember the first day we met. He was the new guy in school and I drove by him and gave him the finger. Then I reversed the car and asked him if he wanted to hang out and make a band. I said, ‘you look like a singer dude.’ We could have never imagined what an impact that moment would have.”

“While we are all very happy with the resolve of the band in 2017 with Greg, something still feels unsaid as far as the Dimitri era of the band and with so many people talking about the album and after performing a handful of first album performances with Suicidal Tendencies, it just all made sense. This needed to happen!”

The. anniversary event marks the first shows of any iteration of Dillinger Escape Plan since the band's farewell in 2017. Tickets go on sale December 15th at 10am ET. Get tickets - HERE
