Last week we let you know that Dillinger cancelled their performance at Tuska Festival due to injury (with no elaboration) and promised an update, so here ya go! According to the official Tuska website, Tesseract will be replacing The Dillinger Escape Plan on Friday, June 28th.
“I’m heartbroken that we will miss these shows because we were all looking forward to them a great deal,” Weinman said. “Obviously nobody likes being injured. I’m looking forward to performing on Summer Slaughter at full capacity and we will be back in Europe this fall on our headlining tour.”
“Leaving for tour knowing that we would be performing without all members on stage isn’t something any of us are comfortable with,” added frontman Greg Puciato. “Ben is going to take the next month to heal and we’ll be ready to demolish Summer Slaughter and return to Europe in the fall with all systems loaded and ready to go.”
So it’s pretty shitty that I won’t be breaking my neck in the Tuska pit for Dillinger, but I am pretty excited about seeing Tesseract. Get well soon and get back to melting faces Ben!
