Last week we saw The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman appear in a crypic video along side original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis teasing some nostalgic announcement. Today we know what that was all about.

The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced a celebration of the 1999 debut album Calculating Infinity and they will be joined by the original vocalist on the album, Minakakis. The show is to take place on June 21, 2024 in Brooklyn, NY at the Brooklyn paramount and will feature a the band performing the album in full for the first time ever.

Sharing the stage with Weinman and Minakakis will be bassist Liam Wilson and drummer Billy Rymer. Support for the event will be handled by Car Bomb and Candy.

Tickets will go on sale Wednesday December 13th at 10 AM EST, here.

A few of the members shared their excitement for the announcement.

Guitarist Ben Weinman shared:

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!

Minikakis spoke about his return:

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.

Bassist Liam Wilson also added:

Amped to go party like it's 1999 again and give this album the birthday party it deserves! These songs are still unfuckwithable and as a musician, it's rad to have the opportunity to get back under the hood of this album and revisit my salad days, this time with more seasoning. Dimitri always had such a menacing presence and venomous voice, it's gonna be killer to rip these songs with him up there with us!
