Animals As Leaders & Ex-Periphery Members Guest On New JIA Song “Drift”

JIA have premiered a new song titled “Drift“ via Alternative Press. This track features Animals As Leaders drummer Matt Garstka and former Periphery vocalist Casey Sabol. JIA commented:

“‘Drift‘ was one of the first songs that we wrote as a band. It reflects our diverse musical influences, ranging from metal to more popular idioms such as electronic music. That being said, we never think about style when we write, we just let the ideas flow.”

Dance Gavin Dance commented:

“We are happy to announce that we have rescheduled the spring Dance Gavin Dance tour to start on Tuesday, August 4th in Seattle, WA ending with the rescheduled Swanfest on Saturday, September 12th. We began the process of rescheduling moments after we realized that we would not be able to have our Spring tour begin.

We have done our best to retain most of the same markets and venues as our previous run. All tickets previously purchased will be honored. We also have a couple new shows/locations that we have added, and the on-sale information for those dates are coming soon.

Fortunately, we were able to retain most of the complete lineup for this tour, however members of Royal Coda had previous commitments in place that they were unable to reschedule. We are happy to announce that Wolf & Bear will be filling that spot along with Animals As Leaders, ISSUES, and VEIL OF MAYA.

While we know that right now many things are uncertain, we felt that it was very important to our fans, supporting bands and crew to reschedule to a time period in which we hope will be a safe environment for everyone involved.

We know that things will continue to change rapidly and we will actively monitor any future situations and make appropriate changes if needed, but for now we ask that everyone stay safe, follow all our state and local guidelines and practice proper hygiene and social distancing. We look forward to seeing you in August/September.

More details on Swanfest coming soon, but we can confirm that it will be at Papa Murphy’s Park on Saturday, September 12th.”

Dance Gavin Dance Postpone Spring Tour With Animals As Leaders, Issues, Veil Of Maya, & Royal Coda

Dance Gavin Dance have postponed their tour with Animals As Leaders, Issues, Veil Of Maya, and Royal Coda due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“Due to extreme circumstances outside of our control we are very upset to announce that we are postponing our spring 2020 tour. We are currently working right now to reschedule all shows as soon as possible & will of course honor all tickets already sold. This was our most anticipated tour, ever, and we were so proud of our fans for coming through and selling out these shows, only to have it all go away. However, your safety is top priority and we must follow what is being recommended to ensure that. We will have new dates for you soon. We hope you enjoyed the release of “Strawberry’s Wake” today and can’t wait for you to hear the rest of the album soon. Much love to you all, from Will, Matt, Jon, Tim, Tilian and Andrew -Dance Gavin Dance”
