Dance Gavin Dance return with another smashing album in the form of Artificial Selection. Anyone familiar with DGD will be well used to their chaotic and dynamic musical style, one which fuses multiple elements within their song writing across any of their given albums, Artificial Selection is no exception.

You get it all here, kitchen sink thrown in for good measure as they ravage their way across a fourteen track brutal yet highly melodic album that you cannot step away from! It is a little beauty that just keeps giving track after track. The album is full of melodic interludes with vocalist’s Tilian Pearson and Jon Mess supplying their signature style across the board, each track is an audible delicacy that takes you on a sonic journey from start to finish.

 

A cracking recording by these veterans, Dance Gavin Dance age like a fine wine. Artificial Selection could just be their finest vintage yet.

 

Artificial Selection is out now vis Rise Records.

 

Formed in 2005, the groundbreaking act which fuses elements of emo, post-hardcore, jazz fusion, progressive rock and screamo into their signature sound, has seen their last five album’s chart on the Billboard Top 200.
