Dance Gavin Dance have just released a brand new track titled ‘Son of Robot’. The track is the second single off their upcoming album, “Artificial Selection”, which is set to drop June 8, 2018. The album will be their 8th studio album, both as a band, and on the Rise Records label.
‘Son of Robot’ showcases exactly what we expect from a new Dance Gavin Dance song. Will Swann’s guitars are melodic and technical, filled with hooks that will make you hum along. Matt Mingus’ drums are as fast and aggressive as they’ve ever been, yet still filled with groove. Jon Mess will leave you scratching your head with lines such as: “His son’s a girl named baby swirl that loves to swang his blade”. But once again, it is clean vocalist Tilian Pearson who steals the show. His vocals soar above the rest, and are hauntingly beautiful. His prowess at singing both, laid back, and upbeat styles of music are definitely a perfect fit for Dance Gavin Dance.
I for one cannot wait for this album to drop, and am hoping we will get to hear more before June comes around.
