Dance Gavin Dance has today released ‘Lyrics Lie’, their third single from their highly-anticipated ninth full-length studio album, Afterburner. The video for ‘Lyrics Lie’ features a timelapse of their album art mural in their hometown of Sacramento.
Dance Gavin Dance had just launched their massive North American headline tour, set to play their biggest venues to date when the Covid-19 pandemic broke out. These dates have been rescheduled for August & September 2020. This follows the band’s entirely sold out North American headliner in 2019, where they sold over 90k tickets in one year alone.
Dance Gavin Dance, who already celebrate a massive 868 thousand sales in the US alone from their catalogue and over 650 million streams will release ‘Afterburner’ on Friday, April 24 via Rise Records. The LP 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.
