There’s a good chance you’ve heard Nic Newsham’s voice if you’re into post-hardcore. He featured on arguably Dance Gavin Dance’s most popular track “Uneasy Hearts Weigh the Most,” and sung for the massively-underrated Gatsby’s American Dream in the 2000s.
Thankfully, he still dabbles in music, as he’s featured on some Strawberry Girls tracks on each of their albums. First with “Transparent Sea” off French Ghetto, “Thank God” off Italian Ghosts, and now “Mini Ripper” from Tasmanian Glow, his voice complements the otherwise-instrumental band well.
The band has released a new version of “Mini Ripper”, with Nic being the center focus in an out-of-this-world presentation. He gets to dance around and deliver his lyrics emphatically over a filter that showcases some gorgeous color schemes, creating a psychedelic vibe.

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.
Eternity Forever (the new supergroup featuring members of Dance Gavin Dance, CHON, and Strawberry Girls) have released the second track off of their upcoming Fantasy EP, out April 20. The track, “Letting Go”, is another funky blend of soulful vocals and math rock technicality, this time with a more emotional twist. Stream the track from the group’s Bandcamp below, and be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
