Well, would you look at this! After announcing their sixth new album Mothership back in July, post-hardcore experimentalists Dance Gavin Dance have finally given listeners a glimpse into what the new record will sound like. And let us tell you, after about twenty listens already, the band’s new single is absolutely worth the wait.
Titled as “Chucky Vs The Giant Tortoise,” Dance Gavin Dance’s new single is a certified gift from the heavens. Honestly, even if you don’t believe in the great unknown, there’s no denying that this song is otherworldly. Combining Will Swan’s finger-licking guitar work with Tillan Pearson’s silky smooth melodies and Jon Mess’ bizarrely brilliant lyricism (“riding a rhino, pico de gallo.” ARE YOU KIDDING!? AMAZING!) make this new track one of the band’s best hands down.
To give the new song a listen for yourself, be sure to look below. Afterwards, make sure to not only pre-order Mothership but also grab tickets to see Dance Gavin Dance on tour alongside The Contortionist, Hail The Sun and more here.
