Dance Gavin Dance fully indulges the extremes of creativity. They mine the outer reaches of the rock music landscape with thrilling abandon. Their ambitious blend of heady progressive rock and post-hardcore became something uniquely their own. Dance Gavin Dance fans have streamed "We Own the Night" nearly 12 million times on Spotify alone, with staple catalog anthems "Chucky vs. the Giant Tortoise," "Young Robot," "Inspire the Liars," and "Deception" accounting for another 30 million streams on top of that. Their albums regularly chart in the Billboard 200, each of the last three progressively higher than the last, from Top 40 to the Top 15. An international touring act for over a decade, Dance Gavin Dance has done Vans Warped Tour three times, toured with the likes of Underoath, A Day To Remember and Pierce The Veil, performed at major festivals, and headlined sold out club tours. Where most bands erroneously claim wholly distinct identities, Dance Gavin Dance truly defies categorization. The Sacramento based outfit possess the kind of artistic compass shared with broadminded but heavy metal and hardcore-punk rooted iconoclasts like The Mars Volta and Coheed & Cambria, but use it to diverge wildly, charting a new course that incorporates the melodic screamo of Thursday or Taking Back Sunday, with a taste of the earnest pop melancholy of Death Cab For Cutie. The current and most definitive incarnation of Dance Gavin Dance is responsible for half of the band's albums, including their most recent effort, Artificial Selection. The new record is the strongest and most wondrously diverse showcase yet for the lauded post-hardcore experimentalists, equal parts intense, melodic, and unbound. There's the angelic and R&B infused highs of the sweet voiced Tilian Pearson; the unhinged guttural growls and chaotic screams of cofounder Jon Mess; the dizzyingly unpredictable arpeggio-led guitar crunch of cofounder Will Swan; the soulful poly-rhythmic backbone of longtime bassist Tim Feerick; and the mind-blowingly powerful nuanced foundation laid by drummer and cofounder Matt Mingus. It's all even bigger than ever on Artificial Selection, brought to life by close collaborator and producer Kris Crummett (Sleeping With Sirens, Crown The Empire, Issues). Dance Gavin Dance's ambitious adventurousness and experimental spirit continues to differentiate them from the pack, from the funkier slow jam of "Count Bassy" to the heavy screamo of "The Rattler." There's a throwback to the Death Star era of the band's sophomore album, "Shelf Life," complete with former singer Kurt Travis. "Midnight Crusade" and "Bloodsucker" are guaranteed crowd pleasers. "Son of Robot" goes on an epic musical journey, from mournful to vengeful full stop. As the Boston Globe astutely observed, "Dance Gavin Dance resists pigeonholing... heavy, ambitious, and sometimes witty rock that seizes on the past few decades of edge-dwelling music, places it all in a blender, and puts the speed on high." (There's even Motown, funk, pop, dance, and heaping helpings of indie rock in that blender.) Now more than a dozen years on from their inception, Dance Gavin Dance celebrates an insurgent career, in the tradition of iconoclastic artists from Frank Zappa to Nirvana who did what they wanted, how they wanted, confident that an audience would catch-up. Eight studio albums deep, a thriving fanbase champions the band's irreverent diversity and propulsive power. Animals As Leaders Animals as Leaders is: Tosin Abasi - Javier Reyes - Matt Garstka "Don't believe everything you hear." This is sound advice in the age of spin-especially when the source is Washington, D.C. Enter progressive metal outfit Animals As Leaders. The band's name itself is perfectly suggestive of its impossible sound, which often must be seen to be believed. Acrobatic guitars and surgical polymetric drumming are frequently accompanied by otherworldly soundscapes in an unmatched marriage of technicality and groove. Their statement is bold, and they've made it without a (human) voice. In the decade since its inception, the trio-guitarists Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes are joined by drummer Matt Garstka-have not only redefined the scope of instrumental music, but the limitations of their instruments themselves. In 2008, Tosin Abasi began his initial work on a musical endeavor that would encapsulate the mindset and techniques he had developed in his recently-completed musical studies. His eventual collaboration with producer/engineer Misha Mansoor would culminate in April 2009 with the eponymous release of twelve instrumental tracks embodying a sound previously unheard, and seemingly unimagined-a blend of energetic, anxious metal with a flair for the cosmic. The record garnered (demanded) the immediate attention of listeners and musicians alike... the world was listening. In the years following the addition of Reyes-classical guitarist/audio engineer-and Berklee-educated drummer Matt Garstka, Animals As Leaders has cemented its reputation as the face of modern progressive music, having earned Billboard chart positions for each of its three subsequent studio releases. In addition to headlining extensive tours spanning the globe, they have has supported mainstays across the musical spectrum including Deftones, Thrice, Circa Survive, Underoath and Meshuggah. Their ambitious approach has earned them various accolades, including a cover issue of Guitar World magazine, and has spawned a range of signature-series musical instruments and instructional material hosted by members of the band. The November 2016 release of their fourth studio effort, The Madness of Many, was followed with a lengthy world tour during which the band produced its first live concert recording. In May 2018, more than nine years after their self-titled debut set the wheels in motion, the band again lent its name to an album. Animals As Leaders - Live 2017 shows the group hard at work-effortlessly though it may seem-in their relentless pursuit of musical innovation. The beast certainly shows no signs of slowing.
