These guys are playing 10 minutes from my house a week from tonight in a small bar venue.  I don't know their music, but I am aware of their energetic live performances.  I might have to go to this one.

I'm a big fan of a lot of their music but am really wanting to see their live "performance". I think as you mentioned they focus much more on the energy and performance live.

Go! It'll be very... intimate.

By "intimate", he means that they will cause you physical harm.

Shh...  ;)

Last time I saw DEP, I got kicked in the face by one of the guitarists (Tuttle) as he was hanging from the rafters.

Hey guys check this out! New single from a group with Greg on vocals. Kinda ethereal and spacy and sounds nothing like DEP, but it's great and really shows Greg's diversity.

Cool! 2nd semester will be interesting - new Pixies, Lindsey Stirling, Opeth, and this!

I discovered the band through Rock-Sound samplers some 10-15 years ago - with the songs "The Running Board" and "Panasonic Youth". I liked them a lot, but unfortunately I couldn't find any albums around here. That's until 2014 when I ran into One Of Us Is The Killer.

I hope this new album gets released here.

That BBC show got both new Opeth and new Dillinger Escape Plan (at 2:00:30).

The new album has received a lot of positive reviews, it seems great even to me. It's more experimental than the last one and I still need time to judge it, but I'm certainly interested.

The second half of Wanting Not So Much To As To reminds me a lot Slint.

Only heard it once but like it's been said it seems more experimental than the last one, which works fine for me. Probably a grower. But their best works is still Irony Is a Dead Scene  ;D

Low Feels Blvd. and Honeysuckle are standout tracks for me. Along with the title track.

One of their best, great way to go out.

So I'm finally getting around to this band. I don't know how I have never listened to TDEP before.

I've been aware of them for forever but nothing has ever made me want to actually give them a go (which is weird as they are similar to bands I love). I guess part of it is that I don't know a single one of my friends (of which the majority are metalheads) who listens to this band.

Back when my main source of discovering new bands was music magazines, these guys were always featured every album cycle. Magazines raved about them and I guess I must've listened to a song or two and disliked them.

I think what got me wanting to listen to this band was digging the Killer Be Killed album. Greg's clean vocals on that album were just great so I added some of their albums to my Spotify playlist.

Calculating Infinity came up first a few days ago and I've binged the rest of their discography today (which is easy as their albums are pretty short). Definitely loved Ire Works and One of Us is the Killer. Just finishing up Dissociation now and I know that I'm going to enjoy getting into this band. Just a bit stupid of me to only get to them after they've called it a day  :lol

I'm a casual DEP listener, I enjoy them but they're so frantic, it's for special occasions. They're definitely the loudest band I've heard live. Earplugs didn't even seem to matter. Great show though, and I'm glad to have seen them at least just once before they're quitting.

Extraordinary band, imo. Dissociation has never clicked for Mr but Miss Machine, Ire Works and One Of Us Is The Killer are favourites of mine.

Much like Meshuggah, you can never understand all of what's going on so all listens are revelatory. (But that could just be me being dim.)

Big fan of the band and all its parts actually. My fav's are Ire Works, One of Us is the Killer, and probably Option Paralysis although there's lots of great stuff throughout their catalog.

I don't have a clear favourite album but they are for sure one of my 5 favourite bands ever. The energy of Sunshine The Werewolf and We Are The Storm, to name only the first two of their songs I love, are unmatched by anything in my musical library and when I start to listen to them I cannot change band or genre, I have to listen to another one of their songs or I stop for a moment.
The only album I overplayed and don't enjoy anymore is Option Paralysis. It seems that I could listen to the rest of their discography for the whole life without getting bored.

Greg has joined forces with members from Every time I die.

Gotta be one of the worst band names i've heard but the music kinda slaps.

Nice, I'll give it a listen.

Edit: Yea this was really good. This already sounds better than any of Greg's solo stuff he's put out. Guess I'll be looking forward to this album  :metal

I remember a lot of people mentioning Greg when ETID self-destructed last year. It's pretty good. I think (and hope) they'll do more, because Greg is a great screamer but he's also a pretty dynamic singer. I saw him live with Jerry Cantrell and he did really well singing his solo and AIC material.

They are also touring with the Ghost Inside and Underoath so I may check them out live.
