Following their appearance at No Values in Pomona, CA, The Dillinger Escape Plan's first show since their 2017 hiatus and their first performance with original vocalist Dimitri Minakakis since 2001, guitarist Ben Weinman took to Instagram to reflect on the experience and express gratitude to the band's former members.

Weinman shared the following:

My lady put some fun footage together from our weekend, and all i can say is Wow! There are no words that can express how grateful I am for the opportunity to play these special throwback shows with some of my former @dillingerescapeplan alumni besties, and still have the opportunity to get #cyco with @suicidaltendencies

I really need to thank @dminakakis, @liam_wilson, @billyrymer, #Jameslove, for having me. I'm also super grateful for Greg Puciato and the other Dillinger family members for their dedication in helping build this band into what it is for so many years following #calculatinginfinity. If it were not for him and the other people in the DEP fam, I would have never been able to see my friend Dimitri play in front of this many people. It's super cool to experience after all these years.

Thanks to my heros Mike Muir and Jello Biafra for joining us on stage. Definitely a pinch myself moment.

Special thank you to our crew, who we share with ST, for being serious warriors. We were stuck in fest traffic and literally jumped on stage, and I can't believe how these bad asses made it happen under the circumstances. Thank you @deathtotravis @melisssawalton @chris.waiau @coreykoniz and more thank yous in the comments below.
