The Dismemberment Plan (nervously) play "The City" and "What Do You Want Me to Say?" on Fallon, expand reunion tour to Japan, get rich

In July 2009, The Dismemberment Plan’s principal songwriter Travis Morrison posted on his website: “RETIRED! No shows, no records, no band. Just relaxing in Brooklyn.” By the end of 2010, however, The Dismemberment Plan had officially reformed, announced the vinyl reissue of Emergency & I, booked an East Coast tour, manufactured some wares (see above), “got with it” (1, 2, 3), and even landed themselves a spot on the I-guess-it’s-maybe-sorta-kinda-indie Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

In fact, their nationally televised performance on Fallon just aired! Performing E&I tracks “The City” and “What Do You Want Me to Say?” (the latter of which being a web-only performance), The Dismemberment Plan are now officially all up in our grills again. Check out the nerve-wracked performance of “The City” and then “What Do You Want Me to Say?” below. And word has it that the group performed a second bonus song, which will likely come sometime tomorrow.

Meanwhile, peep D-Plan’s newly expanded reunion dates below, which now sees the group bringing their cute little tunes to Japan, Chicago, and Seattle.
