It’s been more than a decade since the DC pop-punk outfit the Dismemberment Plan has released any new music — that is, until last weekend. The Plan has come together for a handful or reunion shows over the past few years though had not played any new material until last weekend’s show at Eyeclopes in Fredericksburg, VA, where the band played a total of eight new tunes.
Luckily for the band’s cult-like fanbase who couldn’t make it at a tiny show in the District’s exoburbs, the DCist was there to capture some of the new material. Fans will find much to appreciate here, with many of the new songs featuring the hyperactive energy and pop sensibilities that won the band fame a decade ago. Check out “Daddy Was a Real Good Dancer,” a song frontman Travis Morrison introduced as his “Ben Folds moment,” below before heading over to the DCist to check out the rest.
