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.
Recently the post-hardcore band Too Close To Touch has released yet another single titled “Burn.” Following their previous single, “Before I Cave In” that was released in late November, we are pretty sure you’re going to like this single just as much as the others.
With a melodic instrumental piece that carries vocalist Keaton Pierce’s emotion-filled vocals, you will find yourself wanting to head-bang and scream the lyrics but also cry at the same time. My favorite lyrics from the song personally are “Deep in the cracks you left in me, I bury a belief that keeps me sane. More than a phase I’m done pretending, why try to hide this fragile state?”
The post-hardcore quintet Too Close To Touch has released another new single titled, “Before I Cave In” via Epitaph Records. The song features emotion-filled vocals by Keaton Pierce, mixed with an instrumental piece similar to the lead single “Sympathy” off of their second full-length album Haven’t Been Myself.
You can listen to the song on Spotify here.
A year after releasing their sophomore album Repeating History, Amarionette are back with the phenomenal new single “Modern Disco.” The infectious, funky jam puts the spotlight squarely on the band’s superb pop songcraft, channeling Michael Jackson and The 1975 within the framework of a groovy instrumental that retains the band’s technicality. However, the real star of the track is lead singer Quin White, who channels vintage MJ and flawlessly delivers some of the catchiest earworms you’re likely to hear all year. Don’t sleep on this one.
