The Dismemberment Plan have been back together for a few years, even to the point of testing out new songs live. That’s great and all, but that’s not going to stop Travis Morrison from starting another band. Last year, the Dismemberment Plan frontman emerged with a new group, The Burlies. According to Brooklyn Vegan, they made their live debut with a few shows last year. Unfortunately, though, Hurricane Sandy prevented them from playing any shows in their hometown of New York. Well, Hurricane Sandy is thankfully long gone, giving the band a chance to play a pair of New York shows later this month. They’ll be playing Union Hall on June 14 with Noveller and Drunk Tigers, then hitting up Shea Stadium on June 20.
All well and good and all, but look, the world wants a little more Dismemberment Plan. Great news: the world’s getting just that, a little more Dismemberment Plan! The band has two festival dates announced for the year: Riot Fest in Chicago and St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival in Detroit. Both festivals take place during the weekend of September 13-15, so the year’s supply of The Dismemberment Plan will be limited to a very specific area at a very specific time. Hey, Travis Morrison! Spread some more of your bands around! Some of us live in, oh, let’s say, Texas.
