Dance Gavin Dance Debut #8 On Billboard Top 200 With New Album ‘Jackpot Juicer’

To dance is to express oneself through a series of movements. A sign that we are truly alive and kicking, not just a zombie walking this planet. Apart from being an indicator of life, it’s always been a part of our shared history. It’s a bind that keeps us all together, it’s that relatable cord that we all hang on to when we’re at our happiest or just want to impress others. No matter how much we argue that we don’t know how to because we’ve got two left feet, it’s in our DNA. 

Pretty much like dancing itself, the group Dance Gavin Dance has been a long-time part of the music industry. Circa 2005, this American rock band from Sacramento California brought us memorable tunes such as “Awkward”, “Tree Village”, “Nothing Shameful”, “Uneasy Hearts Weigh The Most” and so much more. Now that it’s 2022, they’re still rocking our socks off, this time with their new album entitled “Jackpot Juicer”. As the title suggests, it’s a colorful look at gambling life and the elements found in casinos such as the iconic slot machine. But if you look closer, it’s also a personification of the human condition and how we risk things to get what we want. 

Released last July 29th, it boasts of 18 action packed hits such as: “Untitled 2”, “Cream Of The Crop”, “Synergy (Feat. Rob Damiani)”, “Holy Ghost Spirit”, “For The Jeers”, “Ember”, “Pop Off!”, “One Man’s Cringe”, “Feels Bad Man”, “Die Another Day”, “Two Secret Weapons”, “Polka Dot Dobbins”, “Long Nights In Jail”, “Back On Deck”, “Current Events”, “Pray To God For Your Mother”, “Swallowed By Eternity” and “Have A Good Life”. All of which have received critical acclaim and collectively have garnered the following accolades: #8 Billboard Top 200, #1 Top Alternative Albums, #1 Top Rock Albums, #2 Vinyl Albums, #3 Top Independent Albums, and #5 Top Album Sales. Whew! That’s a mouthful for sure, and rightfully so because they’ve always been a well-oiled rock machine. Always ready to please, connect and infiltrate our hearts and minds with their powerful tracks with just one go. Truly, their charisma and their talent are unmatched.  With more still left in the tank, Dance Gavin Dance is still on that path to greatness and we’re more than overjoyed to witness it all unfold.
