Dance Gavin Dance Release New Track From Forthcoming Album, “Artificial Selection”

Rise Records and American rock quintet Dance Gavin Dance are excited to present “Son Of Robot,” the second song to be released from the band’s highly anticipated, forthcoming studio album titled Artificial Selection (pre-order). Produced by the band, Kris CrummettErik Ron and Dryw OwensArtificial Selection is the strongest and most wondrously diverse showcase yet for the lauded post-hardcore experimentalists, equal parts intense, melodic, and unbound. Dance Gavin Dance fully indulges in the extremes of creativity, mining the outer reaches of the rock music landscape with thrilling abandon. It’s all anchored in an ambitious blend of heady progressive rock and post-hardcore uniquely their own that clearly shines through on the album’s stunning opening track. Check out “Son Of Robot” on Spotify and YouTube, and watch the futuristic music video for “Midnight Crusade” HERE.

Additionally, the band recently announced its upcoming spring U.S. headlining tour with supports I See StarsErra and Sianvar. The tour, which will begin after a number of appearances on Underoath’s “No Fix” Tour, will kick off on Saturday, May 26 in San Antonio, TX and visit markets such as Richmond, VA, Philadelphia, PA, Toronto, ON, Cleveland, OH, Detroit, MI, Englewood, CO and many more. A full listing of dates can be found below with information on tickets, and album bundles, HERE.

Where most bands erroneously claim wholly distinct identities, Dance Gavin Dance truly defies categorization. The Sacramento based outfit possess the kind of artistic compass shared with broadminded but metal and punk-rooted iconoclasts like The Mars Volta and Coheed and Cambria, but use it to diverge wildly, charting a new course that incorporates the melodic post-hardcore of Thursday or Taking Back Sunday with a taste of earnest pop melancholy.
