Dance Gavin Dance- After Burner

The new album from one of the most interesting post hard core bands I’ve ever heard came out April 24th. Honestly I knew nothing about this band before today. I was in a different place musically when they came out and wrote em of as some Warped Tour scene band. I gave em a chance today with this album and I was hooked from the first song. I love progressive hard core to begin with. This album sounds like they took the best parts of post 2002 Propagandhi, Thursday, Circa Survive Fall Out Boy, Dillenger Escape Plan and put all of it into a singular band. I’ve always been a fan of the clean and screamed vocals in post hard core but I’m blown away by the juxtaposition of the pop sensibility of their clean vocals versus the heavy scream. All of this gives them their own unique sound. I really can’t compare them wholly to anything, but it’s just fuckin good. So crank this and give it a listen. Maybe you’ll dig it as much as I do, maybe you won’t. But at least you’ll have taken a chance on expanding your musical palate.
