New to the scene, they blend their influences well into an overall hardcore style of music. SERIOUSLY, CHECK THEM OUT!

Great name. Tunes aren't too bad either. Really like the voice of the singer, not overly fond of the growling/screaming bloke's vocals though.

Theirs so many of them locally, I never pick up names. However, my scene is turning very indy, so they don't play as much any more now. I believe my mate is setting up a good band like this.

If I can get any links for you, I shall.

No promises.

they're definitely not my favorite band and i wouldnt buy their cd, but i will say that they're the best band on rise records. tdwp gets real old because all of their songs sound pretty much the same, drop dead gorgeous sounds like a 5 year old girl screaming...blah blah blah...dance gavin dance is good compared to those two.

They sound like Fall of Troy?
Really?
What Fall of Troy have you been listening to?

They're good.
Better lyrics than AOF.
They do sound kinda like a rip-off though.

Heh, one of them has a mullet.

It's Safe to Say You Dig the Backseat is kinda tfotish and The Backwards Pumpkin Song has its parts. (off downtown battle mountain)

the new album kills the last one and i personally think there better than Aof.

Guitarist quit and joined this band :

http://myspace.com/heartshed

Hey everyone,

as of the end of this tour (August 20th) I will no longer be in Dance Gavin Dance.

as cliché as this sounds, I believe that my departure from the band is on the best of possible terms. I love each person in the band more than can be explained and respect them for their character and abilities. I am proud of what I've accomplished with these guys and can look back on most of what I've said and done with no regrets. Those things have made the experience worth it.

Thank you to each and every person that's come and watched us play or has said a single encouraging word to me. You have made traveling across the US in a terrible smelling van worth it and you have defined this band so far.

I will be joining Heartshed as their third guitarist when I get back home after a little break and will hopefully be releasing some solo stuff at the end of this year.

As far as the rest of the band is concerned, they will continue without me. No tours are cancelled and the band isn't breaking up. Disregard whatever rumors you've heard. There's no bad blood...I plan on watching these guys at every show they play locally and want to see them succeed. I just know that this isn't the right place for me to be right now.


many thanks,

Sean O'Sullivan

Vocals are different, but I like his voice a lot. Most of the songs are catchy, I have not found one I didn't like.

^Nay.

I say them on the 27th or 28th. I forget which day. And they seemed alive and well. I taked to Jonny for a while. He's crazy. Unfortunately, the rat tail is gone. :( But he had this crazy poof thing going. He didn't miss a note on stage, which was awesome. The Backwards Pumpkin Song was ace live.

Seeing them on the HHLL tour. Stoked for that. HHLL and Tera Melos along with DGD. Epic win.

It's weird knowing all of that after talking to him. He seemed like a nice guy. I mean right after their set finished he was at the merch booth helping people out.

But that's only the band's side of the story. Who knows? I hope it's not true. I'm really interested to see who the new vocalist.

CrashedTheShow3
11-11-2007, 07:45 PM
Damn. That kids voice was the only thing that kept them from being generic shit.

I still found it funny that he just slurred together a bunch of words and that they made lyrics for it later

My friend showed me this band last night, and, I must say, I enjoy them a good bit.

The screamer isn't the GREATEST thing in the world, but he's not horrible, IMO, so he's listenable.

Other than that, though, the band is great. :)

they have another new song, i forget what it's called though. something with uneasy hearts in the title.

Here it is

i dont like it though. the other 3 new songs are much better imo.

07-07-2008, 02:29 PM
well just a little update for you dgd fans. the screamer jon mess left the band and eric lodge the orginal bass player left. i just saw them on the first and i can confirm that. i have heard some random things one being they have a new screamer called zach elizondo something like that iam not sure. for now will swan screams and overall it was a great show.

New cd august 15th i think they said, i cant wait.

I have to disagree on you here buddy. The old vocalist is really talented and has a much better range then their new one.

Yeah I think this band is pretty good, they put on a fun show.

I agree with this, even though you posted it a year ago and probably won't notice me agreeing with you.

I listened to this band because of all the comments about them in other threads, and I don't usually like music with this type of vocal style, but this is enjoyable.

The problem with bands like this one and TFOT is that a lot of the time they get thrown into tours with a bunch of scene bands because of the vocals.

Pop? :confused:

These guys are great, but to be fair I've only heard their ST. I'd prefer good clean vocals and not-so-good screams to the other way around, but I don't mind the screams anyway

I agree with GodofCheesecake - they get labelled 'emo' because of the bands they tour with.

No seriously, it sounded like ***ing pop ****. Happiness is terrible. There is a song that starts off (and has two parts... clean high-pitched vocals:)
Hey girl stay to the earl morning,
We can have some coffee,
You can do my laundry...
