Chart topping, Sacramento group, Dance Gavin Dance have dropped “Pop Off!” today, the second new track from the band’s recently announced new album JACKPOT JUICER (out via Rise Records on July 29th). “Pop Off!” is accompanied by a brand new music video which picks up where the video for precious single, “Synergy” feat Rob Damiani, leaves off. Listen to “Pop Off!” here and watch the video here or by clicking the image below.
“Pop Off!” follows the release of the first new single from the album, “Synergy” feat. Rob Damiani of Don Broco, which was released back in March of this year to huge critical acclaim. It charted at #11 on the Billboard Hot Hard Rock Songs and has clocked up 1.5 million YouTube views and 3.6 million cross-platform streams.
What the press are saying about ‘Synergy’
“It’s not often that a song can elicit both dancing and head-banging but Dance Gavin Dance has proven time and time again that they are masters of genre-bending.” – MTV
“The standout guitar moment is the whole damn thing” – Guitar World (Essential Guitar Tracks)
“Tech-y, anthemic” – Brooklyn Vegan
“more absolutely flawless songwriting from some of the best to do it” – Rock Sound
Dance Gavin Dance announced the release of their brand new album, ‘Jackpot Juicer‘, last month just prior to their hugely successful, completely sold-out Swanfest festival, which took place in their hometown of Sacramento. The event was bittersweet as it came immediately in the aftermath of the news that the band had lost their dear friend and bassist, Tim Feerick to whom the event was dedicated. Over 10,000 fans descended on Heart Health Park to join the band in celebrating Tim’s life and exceptional musical talent.
‘Jackpot Juicer’ follows Dance Gavin Dance‘s enormously successful 2020 release, AFTERBURNER, which topped charts and debuted at #14 on the Billboard Top 200 with a digital only release. ‘Jackpot Juicer’ will be released on July 29th via Rise Records. Pre-Order bundles were launched the same day and saw a sell-out of 7 different vinyl variants already. Remaining pre- orders are available now HERE.

About Dance Gavin Dance
Rejecting tired formulas at every step, Dance Gavin Dance merge progressive rock and post-hardcore with thick groove, brilliantly combining experimental music with hooks and a warped sense of humor. The group has amassed over 1.4 billion global streams, and 1.2 million album equivalent units sold across their catalog in the US alone. With hundreds of thousands of rabid fans engaged with Dance Gavin Dance on socials and their very own festival event, Swanfest, which sold out its inaugural edition in 2019 and is slated to see a triumphant return in 2022 in the band’s hometown of Sacramento this April, it all amounts to a full force band facing a mainstream that has overlooked them for too long.
Dance Gavin Dance released their ninth studio album, Afterburner, in April of 2020. Since its release, the album has clocked up 135 million streams and topped a multitude of charts on two separate occasions, once with it’s digital release hitting #14 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 across the Current Albums, Alternative, Billboard Top Albums, Digital, Current Digital Albums, Rock, Heavy Rock and Current Independent Albums charts and again when the physical version was released several months later due to the pandemic, when it hit #1 across Vinyl, Internet, Alternative, Rock, Hard Music, Independent Current Albums, #3 Top Current and Billboard Top Albums and #47 on the Billboard 200 charts. This past Christmas, the band surprised fans with a special holiday gift by dropping ‘Afterburner (Instrumental)’ on streaming platforms. It was previously only available via a Target exclusive double disc CD.
The Afterburner 2021 US Tour, although being one of the first coast-to-coast indoor tours to hit the road post-pandemic, was successfully completed and saw Dance Gavin Dance sell a whopping 78,500 tickets across 33 shows making it the band’s biggest tour to date.
As the undeniable statistics keep mounting up, the fact becomes more and more clear that Dance Gavin Dance are becoming one of this generation’s most popular and enduring forces from the world of heavy music. As Pollstar put it in their recent feature on the huge success of the tour – “Sacramento, Calif.-based Dance Gavin Dance is not just any band.”
