The Dillinger Escape Plan Launch NFT Series
Today marks five years since the release of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s final album, Dissociation, which came out on October 14, 2016. On one hand it feels like ‘how the hell has it been five years already??’ and on the other I think about everything that’s happened between then and now and wonder how all that took place in only five years. So, ya know, typical “wtf passage of time” stuff.
To mark the anniversary, The Dillinger Escape Plan will be releasing a series of “enhanced artwork NFTs” in collaboration with artist Oleg Rooz. There will be 12 visuals in total, one for all 11 songs on the album and two for “Surrogate.” The NFTs are either brand new, never-before-released, or reimagined animated visuals from the album campaign. 10 are remakes, while there are two entirely new visuals for “Surrogate” and “Dissociation.”
The NFT for “Limerent Death,” an 18-second looping animated clip, is the first to be placed up for auction right here. There have been two bids so far with the current highest bid standing at 0.70 ETH (Etherium), equivalent to roughly $2,644.97. Try and wrap your head around that one. Yeah, I don’t get it either. But you’ve got a little over 9 hours left if you want to get in on the action.
The rest of the NFTs will be revealed in due time. Meanwhile, you can jam “Limerent Death” below.
