Tampa instrumental rock band Tides Of Man have had quite the journey to get where they currently are now. Their new record Every Nothing, the band’s second record without any vocals at all, manages to convey a sense of epic and emotion that doesn’t need words to succeed.
Having been around for more than a decade, it’s difficult to find someone who hasn’t heard of Dance Gavin Dance. With a catalog boasting six full length albums, an EP, and a festival recording, this comes as no surprise; however, these post-hardcore juggernauts haven’t had the easiest ride. Three vocalists have contributed singing over eleven years. Their original vocalist, Jonny Craig, and his replacement, Kurt Travis, both appeared on two albums respectively, though not in a consistent order. Jonny departed in 2007, only to return in 2010 as his replacement’s replacement alongside co-founder, dual frontman, Jon Mess, who had left in 2008. Following Jonny’s second departure, the position has since been filled by ex-Tides Of Man singer, Tilian Pearson, and this one seems permanent.
