Dance Gavin Dance have dropped their new video for single ‘Three Wishes’ from their new album Afterburner, out on April 24th via Rise Records/BMG Australia! The band requested their fans to submit videos of themselves cleaning their houses, brushing their teeth, washing their dogs, anything they wanted to do in this realm. The result was over 1,500 submissions, both funny & creative. A video for the fans, made by the fans.
Pre-order the new record ‘Afterburner’ HERE. The LP was produced by the group’s frequent collaborator, Kris Crummett, (Issues, Sleeping With Sirens, Mayday Parade) and Drew Fulk a.k.a. WZRD BLD (Lil Wayne, Motionless in White, Bad Wolves). The album is a landmark mission statement that encompasses DGD energy past, present, and future. It is a killer and dynamic demonstration of what the quintet does best, and is equal parts aggressive, melodic, and unrestrained.
Rejecting tired formulas at every step, Dance Gavin Dance merge progressive rock and post-hardcore with thick groove, brilliantly combining experimental music with hooks and a warped sense of humor. 2018’s Artificial Selection crashed into the Billboard 200 Chart at No.13, on the strength of the love for fan-favorite predecessors like Acceptance Speech (2013), Instant Gratification (2015), and Mothership (2016), and just as importantly, the band’s mesmerizing and unforgettable live performances. Artificial Selection went on to sell over 112k copies and counting. In the U.S. alone, the group has amassed over 800 million streams, with 1 million album equivalent units sold across their catalog. With hundreds of thousands of rabid fans engaged with DGD on socials, it all amounts to a full force band facing a mainstream that has overlooked them for too long.
In the heady tradition of Frank Zappa and Nirvana – people who made serious art without ever seeming self-serious – DGD is a band that does what they want, how they want, confident that the audience will keep up.
Dance Gavin Dance’s ninth full-length studio album, Afterburner, will be released on Friday, 24th April via Rise Records and BMG Australia – and is available now for pre-order at https://riserecords.lnk.to/afterburner.
