On the Eve of Afterburner

We all know and love Dance Gavin Dance. Their album release tomorrow is going to further demonstrate their relevance in the post hardcore or “swancore” (conveniently named after DGD guitarist Will Swan) scene. Dare I say they are beginning to go more mainstream? The charts shall show us in the next couple of weeks. I am stoked to hear all of the musical ramblings that they always seem to provide, creating major juxtaposition in cleans, screams, and intricate instrumental prowess. Their sound has constantly changed throughout their incredible 14 year tenure as a band, with so many lineup changes throughout the years. This of course includes the three powerful front men Jonny Craig, Kurt Travis, and Tilian Pearson, who have all implanted their sound permanently on the band.
