Sweetening the deal, the “We Own The Night” singers are bringing some heavy-hitters in the hardcore and metal world. Math-metal giants Animals as Leaders, metalcore stalwarts Veil Of Maya and fellow post-hardcore outfits Royal Coda and Issues round out the package tour.
Though the world of post-hardcore is full of bands that sound exactly the fucking same, Dance Gavin Dance managed to rise above thanks a distinct musical approach. The Sacramento-based outfit pairs jazzy and technical riffs with emotive singing vocals and anguish-filled screams to produce real art.
Indeed, Dance Gavin Dance has held its own through this decade, and —alongside bands like Circa Survive — has helped push post-hardcore into progressive and experimental territories. Its latest release is 2019's Acceptance Speech 2.0.
