The Dillinger Escape Plan Rip Through Brooklyn With Pummeling Performance
There’s no specific word or way to describe the intensity of seeing the Dillinger Escape Plan live, it’s the throbbing soreness your body tells the morning after going through the tornado of a Dillinger show. On Saturday night (April 20), Brooklyn got treated to a free show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, N.Y., with support from the Faceless, Royal Thunder and Primitive Weapon.
With blistering strobe lights, the New Jersians of Dillinger Escape Plan unleashed their new tune ‘Prancer.’ They also played another new track ‘When I Lost My Bet’ off of their upcoming album ‘One of Us is the Killer.’
Frontman Greg Puciato and guitarist Ben Weinman leaped into the crowd throughout the set as fans crowdsurfed their way to the stage to scream the lyrics they love back at Puciato. With Dillinger Escape Plan, it’s no holds barred and no separation between the band and fans.
Havoc ensued when Dillinger played favorites such as ‘Panasonic Youth,’ ‘Milk Lizzard,’ 'Sugar Coated Sour,’ 'Farewell, Mona Lisa’ and ‘Sunshine the Werewolf.’
All hell unleashed as they ended their set with ‘43% Burnt’ and 43 percent of fans hopped onstage due to Puciato’s invitation. As fans sung onstage with him, the frontman got on one of the speakers and proceeded to crowd surf onstage as a swarm of Dillinger fans held him up.
The Faceless also gave a forceful performance and got fans riled up as the first mosh pits of the night broke out during their set. Georgia rock outfit Royal Thunder also served as support and brought their own unique style to the line-up as they provided harmonious and soulful melodies which had gritty undertones and rocking riffs. Brooklyn natives Primitive Weapons got the blood pumping with an energetic performance to kick off the night.
