Dance Gavin Dance, have dropped a brand new track ‘Head Hunter’ (Rise Records) with a highly entertaining, spaghetti western inspired video that perfectly exhibit’s the band’s dry sense of humour.
The brand new track comes a week out from the band’s first ever Swanfest, a one-day festival curated and headlined by Dance Gavin Dance and taking place at City National Grove Of Anaheim on 30th March.
Since their inception in 2005, Dance Gavin Dance has steadily built a phenomenally loyal, cult following. Blending complex instrumentation and time signatures with huge poppy choruses and raw, aggressive screams, Dance Gavin Dance have fathered an entire genre of their own ‘Swancore’ characterized by their signature combination of elements of math-rock, progressive-rock, and post-rock and aptly named after the band’s phenomenal guitarist, Will Swan and his record label Blue Swan Records.
This has been the inspiration for the first ever Swanfest which will be the first date on the band’s upcoming ‘Artificial Selection’US headline tour with special guests Periphery, Don Broco, Hail The Sun, Covet and Thousand Below. The tour comes in support of the band’s critically acclaimed 2018 album of the same name which has already clocked up 48 million streams on Spotify and was critically lauded by the press.
‘Glossii are a young four piece who are set to get your tongues wagging with their thrilling indie punk pop sound. Marrying the highlights of the last four decades of music into one sound explosion, Jank is about to be your new favourite song’ – Music News
Glossii is a four piece rock/post punk band created around South London in early 2017 by Charlie Lock and Guitarist Lewis Smith, along with vocalist Sofia Zanghirella and latest joining member, drummer Reuben Rost.
Glossii’s hard-hitting riffs and bursts of aggression create the ubiquitous back-beat for Sofia’s femme-fatale lyrical insight- reminiscent of other bands such as Wolf Alice and Garbage with a detection and a nod to the original allure of Blondie’
2018 was an impressive debut year for the band, performing at Camden Rocks Festival on the Doc Martens stage, supporting HMLTD in Guildford and releasing their debut single: ‘Headache’, which has received significant support from Diva, DIY, Neon Music alongside radio support from BBC Introducing, iHeartRadio & Amazing Radio – as well as clocking up 20,000 streams on Spotify. Not bad for an fully independent band still in their mid-teens and managed by the equally young Star Hannan.
The band have a mini tour scheduled in April, where tickets are still available:
4th April The Black Heart – London
10th April The Pipeline – Brighton
12th April The Basement (The Sussex Arms) – Tunbridge Wells
