Following the enormous success of the physical release of their latest, chart topping album, Afterburner, Sacramento five-piece, Dance Gavin Dance have released the brand new music video for One In A Million. The animated video is directed by Rob Shaw (Portlandia, At The Drive In) and takes viewers on a weird and wonderful psychedelic
adventure. Watch the video here or by clicking on the image below and find the album on your streaming platform of choice here.
The band also recently announced that they will be celebrating the July 10th physical release of their chart topping new album, Afterburner with a very special, full production, multi-camera broadcast of their Album Release Show. The streamed show, in association with Sound Rink Live, will give fans all around the world the very first opportunity to see Dance Gavin Dance play new songs from Afterburner during the full live set. This special event will take place on Friday July 17th at 6pm PST/9pm EST. Tickets are available now from DanceGavinDance.Live
Dance Gavin Dance were faced with a difficult choice back in April when the release date for their 9th studio album was set. They could either push back the release date altogether in order to allow for the COVID-19 induced manufacturing shut-down and release the album both digitally and physically or, give fans the album they had been waiting patiently to hear and go ahead with a digital only release on the agreed date, forfeiting the sizeable physical pre-order sales contribution to their week 1 chart positions. The band chose their fans over a chart position and released the digital-only version of the album on April 24th.
In a hugely impressive turn of events, Dance Gavin Dance once again proved their undeniable popularity as Afterburner (Rise Records) soared straight to the top of the charts hitting #1 across the Current Album, Alternative, Digital, Rock and Heavy Rock charts and #14 on the Billboard Top 200.
The long-awaited physical release of ‘Afterburner‘ finally dropped last Friday (July 10th) and comes an exclusive double disc CD with instrumental versions of all songs from the album available only from Target and exclusive vinyl variants from both Urban Outfitters and FYE. A full variety of merch bundles are available here.
Dance Gavin Dance‘s ninth studio album, Afterburner, which has already clocked up 47.5 million streams since release, 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, and has been met with high critical acclaim.
The band, who celebrate a massive 1 million album sales worldwide from their catalogue and over 970 million streams, have released 4 videos from ‘Afterburner’ to date – ‘Prisoner’, ‘Strawberry’s Wake‘, ‘Lyrics Lie‘ and ‘Three Wishes’. Combined, they have clocked up an impressive 5.4 million YouTube views and 15.7 million Spotify streams. Watch the video for ‘Strawberry’s Wake’ below:
Dance Gavin Dance were set to play their biggest venues to date on their massive North American headline tour when the Covid-19 pandemic broke out. These dates have been rescheduled for 2021. This follows the band’s entirely sold out North American headliner in 2019, where they sold over 90k tickets in one year alone. The remaining tickets for the current headline tour can be purchased HERE. Full list of tour dates below.
On April 24th, 2021 Dance Gavin Dance will return home to Sacramento for Swanfest, the one-day festival headlined and curated by the band at Papa Murphy’s Park. Labelmates Crown The Empire and Issues, along with Animals As Leaders, Knocked Loose, Movements, Fall Of Troy, I See Stars, Veil Of Maya, Hail The Sun, Covet, Tillie, Royal Coda, Eidola, and Wolf & Bear will join DGD on this year’s lineup. The first ever Swanfest took place last year at the City National Grove of Anaheim, CA, which proved to be a phenomenal sell-out success, a rare feat for a festival in its first year.
