Sacramento chart topping, genre defying quintet, Dance Gavin Dance are finally set to kick-off their long awaited North American Afterburner Tour on September 7th. It was announced yesterday that previously announced main support, Animals As Leaders will no longer be joining the tour due to unforeseen circumstances. However, taking their place on this run will now be genre bending, prog masters, Polyphia. Rounding out the line-up, as planned, will be Veil Of Maya, Eidola and Wolf & Bear. Many shows on the Afterburner Tour have already sold out and several are on low ticket alert. Remaining tickets and VIP packages are available HERE.
The Afterburner Tour is in support of Dance Gavin Dance’s 2020 chart topping album of the same name. The album hit the Billboard charts twice last year due to the band’s decision to choose their fans over a chart position and release the digital-only version of the album first, forfeiting physical sales due to the COVID-19 induced manufacturing shut-down. In a hugely impressive turn of events, Dance Gavin Dance once again proved their undeniable popularity as the digital-only release of ‘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. This certifiable success was further cemented when the physical release of the album dropped months later and once again propelled Afterburner to the top of the charts, hitting the #1 spot on Billboard’s Vinyl, Internet, Alternative, Rock, Hard Music and Independent Current Albums as well as hitting #3 on the Top Albums and Top Current Albums charts and re-entering the Top 200 at #47.
Fans have patiently awaited the opportunity to celebrate the album with Dance Gavin Dance in the live setting since March of 2020 when the tour was originally due to start and the time is finally here. The Afterburner Tour will kick off in Portland, OR on September and play a further 33 cites across North America, before culminating in Las Vegas, NV on October 20th. Full dates below.
