Last updated: 11/02/2012 03:57:53 PM

Emo-leaning and volatile post-hardcore outfit Dance Gavin Dance, somewhat similar to peers Chiodos and the Fall of Troy, feature former members of Farewell Unknown and Ghost Runner on Third, two alums of Seattle's Less Avenged Records. The Sacramento crew is comprised of vocalists Jonny Craig (singing) and Jonathan Mess (screaming), guitarists Will Swan and Sean O'Sullivan, bassist Eric Lodge, and drummer Matt Mingus. The sextet hooked up with Rise Records in late summer 2006 and debuted that November with the EP Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean. ~ Corey Apar, All Music Guide
