Friday May 31st 2019 - Dance Gavin Dance have released 'Artificial Selection Instrumental' today. Available from all streaming platforms now.
Artificial Selection, Dance Gavin Dance's eighth studio album, was released June 2018 via Rise Records to huge acclaim from fans and critics alike. It has already clocked up 48 million streams on Spotify and was critically lauded by the press.
Since their inception in 2005, Dance Gavin Dance has steadily built a phenomenally loyal, cult following. Blending complex instrumentation and time signatures with huge poppy choruses and raw, aggressive screams, Dance Gavin Dance have fathered an entire genre of their own 'Swancore' characterized by their signature combination of elements of math-rock, progressive-rock, and post-rock and aptly named after the band's phenomenal guitarist, Will Swan and his record label Blue Swan Records.
This was the inspiration for the band's inaugural Swanfest, a 1 day festival event that took place earlier this year in Anaheim, CA and saw a sell-out crowd of 7,500 fans descend up City National Grove of Anaheim. The band then hit the road on a their 'Artificial Selection' US headline tour which was a huge success and culminated in two sold out shows at the El Rey in Los Angeles. Over the past year, Dance Gavin Dance have played to over 130,000 fans. They will be performing at Rock USA in Oshkosh, WI on July 29th and will be performing at Vans Warped Tour in Mountain View, CA on July 20/21. Tickets from dancegavindanceband.com
