Dillinger Escape Plan, the New Jersey mathcore band (that's mathrock-meets-hardcore for those who were wondering) stops by the all ages venue Chain Reaction this Monday night, giving hoards of angsty teenage boys something to yell and thrash and freak out about. A Dillinger Escape Plan live show is an entirely different, wild animal—the five-piece group expels a volatile energy akin to releasing years of pent up rage. But this is how they've stayed strong for the last 15 years amid an ever-changing music scene, giving everything they've got, every single time. Fans who can't get enough Dillinger love the band's new album, One of Us is the Killer, which continues to showcase their trademark maniacal intensity.
