Dance Gavin Dance

     Hey! This is my first post to all you music hungry people out there and I thought I'd start off with a band that is easy for me to talk about. Dance Gavin Dance is a mixture of genres, but people tend not to like them because the band does include some screaming ("screamo"). The bands main genre is post hardcore, but also features some soul and funk creating a unique genre all together. Ex-vocalist Jonny Craig add the soul portion of this. In my opinion, Dance Gavin Dance was a much better band when Jonny Craig was the lead singer, though the band still rocks. Dance Gavin Dance is also noted for their original and unique instrumentals, which has always been the point of the band, not the lead singer which is a fresh concept all on it's own. Dance Gavin Dance is signed by Rise Records. Current members of the band are as followed:
Clean Vocals: Tilian Pearson, Will Swan
Unclean Vocals: Jon Mess
Drums/Percussion: Matt Mingus
Guitarist: Will Swan, Josh Benton
Bass Guitarist: Tim Feerick
Rapping: Will Swan

    1. Interesting post! I like that you included some of their music. Maybe you could include a little more information on the band. Such as where they are from or how many records they have released.

  2. I'm not a really big fan of anything that could be considered 'screamo' but it sounds like this group could be one that I would enjoy. I like the name of the group though because it's really easy to remember and it's really catchy! Since you mentioned that Johnny Craig was a better vocalist why did he end up leaving? Did he join another band or did he just leave the music career as a whole?

  3. Not a huge fan of "scremo" music, however that being said, I did like some of the songs you posted attached to this post! I agree with Sam - I'd like to know more about the bad as well!

  4. Sorry about not putting up all of the information on the band! Needless to say, I posted about their ex-vocalist Jonny Craig and you'll find some more info there. If I wrote the whole history of the band you'd end up with a novel :P and a very confused mind! Their history is VERY confusing due to the band constantly changing members due to conflicts within the band. Next band I post about will contain more info though! Thanks for the feedback!
