Dance Gavin Dance are back with a bang. After weeks of teasing, the Sacramento post-hardcore juggernaut has returned with the first single (and music video) from their eighth studio album Artificial Selection, due out June 8th on Rise Records. The new track is called “Midnight Crusade”, and is sure to thrill longtime fans and new converts alike, as the group’s signature brand of quirky intensity is present in full force.
This past Friday, Silent Planet brought an incredibly cathartic musical experience to a packed audience at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, California. With direct support from Strawberry Girls and Night Verses, the diverse lineup put on a show spanning from metalcore to post-rock to progressive, with the consistent through-line being maximum emotional impact. TNF’s own Deniz Davenport was at the show capturing every moment, and we’re thrilled to share her excellent photos.
Fresh off of releasing their fifth (and likely final) studio album Science Fiction, Brand New headlined this year’s High & Low Festival on Saturday, performing to a packed audience at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California. Containing seven tracks off of Science Fiction which the band performed for the very first time, in addition to many fan favorites, Brand New’s set was nothing short of electrifying. If you were not fortunate enough to attend, you can experience the entire set through the fan-shot video below. Thanks to Deniz Davenport for live streaming the whole set!
Riding high off the success of their sophomore record A Reintroduction: The Essence of All That Surrounds Me, California’s Capsize are not strangers to either the studio or the road, touring and playing shows whenever and wherever they can. The band always seems to be writing and recording new tunes, as evidenced by the band’s recently released Youtube video, entitled WRITING SESSIONS 001. The 6 minute video below shows the band demoing material, goofing off, and lots more, so check out the video below and see what Capsize is up to currently. It’s a video that shows how the band writes their music, so hopefully we see continuations of this series.
