Dance Gavin Dance frontman, Tilian Pearson, is excited to share his new single, “Cocky,” out today via Rise Records. The track is an upbeat, infectious alt-pop anthem, bound to be a staple on summer playlists. The accompanying music video is also out today, which features Tilian and his love interest on a picturesque road trip throughout San Bernardino and Crestline, California. Watch it HERE.

Tilian is also pleased to announce that his third full-length studio album, The Skepticis due this fall, confirmed for release on Friday, September 28th. The record is rounded out at 10 tracks and complete with a solid mix of pop-punk and indie-pop offerings. Fans can pre-order it HERE.

“Musically and in my personal life, I kept thinking, ‘I’ve got to find and explore some new ground,’ ” says Tilian. “I’ve always been so much more questioning than most people around me are. I never really bought into things the way 90% of the crowd does. That sentiment communicated the idea of The Skeptic to me,” he adds.

After touring non-stop with DGD, Tilian will head back out on the road next week, kicking off his North American headline dates at San Francisco’s Brick & Mortar on Thursday, August 23rd. The stint hits notable stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Nashville, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Toronto, before wrapping in Denver on Sunday, September 23rd. Former DGD vocalist, Kurt Travis, will provide direct support with his new band, Royal Coda, along with Sunsleep and another special guest (TBA). Tickets and VIP packages can be purchased HERE, and a full itinerary is included below.
