Rise Records and American rock quintet Dance Gavin Dance are excited to present the music video for “Count Bassy,” the fourth track to be released from its highly anticipated, forthcoming studio album titled Artificial Selection. Helmed by director and animator Mount Emult (who also directed the band’s “Summertime Gladness” music video), “Count Bassy” is another intense musical, and visual, journey consistent with the tone of the band’s new body of work.
Out this Friday, June 8 and produced by the band, Kris Crummett, Erik Ron and Dryw Owens, Artificial Selection is the strongest and most wondrously diverse showcase yet for the lauded post-hardcore experimentalists, equal parts intense, melodic, and unbound. Dance Gavin Dance fully indulges in the extremes of creativity, mining the outer reaches of the rock music landscape with thrilling abandon. It’s all anchored in an ambitious blend of heady progressive rock and post-hardcore uniquely their own. Pre-order the album and check out “Care,” “Son Of Robot” and “Midnight Crusade” on Spotify HERE.
Dance Gavin Dance fans have streamed “We Own the Night” nearly 12 million times on Spotify alone, with staple catalog anthems “Chucky vs. the Giant Tortoise,” “Young Robot,” “Inspire the Liars,” and “Deception” accounting for another 30 million streams on top of that. Their albums regularly chart in the Billboard 200, they’ve graced the cover of magazines like Alternative Press, and toured with Vans Warped Tour, A Day To Remember, and Pierce The Veil, all on their own terms.
