Official press release:

Dance Gavin Dance have today announced that they will be celebrating the July 10th physical release of their chart topping new album, Afterburner, with a very special, full production, multi-camera broadcast of their album release show. The streamed show, in association with Sound Rink, will give fans all around the world the very first opportunity to see Dance Gavin Dance play new songs from Afterburner during the full live set. This special event will take place on Friday July 17th at 6pm PST/9pm EST. Tickets are available now from DanceGavinDance.Live

Dance Gavin Dance were faced with a difficult choice back in April when the release date for their 9th studio album was set. They could either push back the release date altogether in order to allow for the COVID-19 induced manufacturing shut-down and release the album both digitally and physically or, give fans the album they had been waiting patiently to hear and go ahead with a digital only release on the agreed date, forfeiting the sizeable physical pre-order sales contribution to their week 1 chart positions. The band chose their fans over a chart position and released the digital-only version of the album on April 24th.

In a hugely impressive turn of events, Dance Gavin Dance once again proved their undeniable popularity as Afterburner (Rise Records) soared straight to the top of the charts hitting #1 across the Current Album, Alternative, Digital, Rock and Heavy Rock charts and #14 on the Billboard Top 200.

The long-awaited physical release of Afterburner is scheduled for Friday, July 10th and will feature an exclusive CD variant available only from Target and exclusive vinyl variants from both Urban Outfitters and FYE.
