Expect the unexpected from The Dillinger Escape Plan at HPX. Or don't?

"Audiences should expect nothing like all the YouTube videos of us out there," says singer Greg Puciato. "Those are all fake live videos we disseminate ourselves to throw people off from the reality that it's kinda like a boy's choir." Dillinger's first visit to Halifax will precede a show in Austin, Texas the following evening. "Sounds crazy, but we do well with crazy," says Puciato. And, really, ignore the fandom and critical acclaim: "I'd like for people to expect to loathe us—that way even if we end up slightly above that, it's a treat."
