The singer has a higher voice than me haha
Thx Wanderer
I've listened to every album and I can honestly say that each and every singer brought something new and interesting to DGD, whether it's intonation, voice structure, and pitch. Would I pick one over another? No. Would I bash on the current singer? No. Because at the end of the day, DGD is still amazing and talented. Spread good vibes.
Matthew Stevens
I think this is the band's best lineup and the band's best sound, I love the technicality and structures of their songs. The music videos are also fantastic.

TILIAN'S VOICE IS HIGHER THAN MY GRADES <3 <3 <3

I see that the artist is trying to find a soul to represent an actual unique personality but has all his hopes in the wrong people. The people who he thinks can fulfill his painting are the regular people who follow the standards of society; the people who are accepted and considered proper. That's shown when he cups the first girl and leads her; acceptance. Everyone doesn't realize that they all lack the substance that he desires because they are all the same and all accept the same standards that they all meet. When he see's the girl in the red dress he has no hope because he is blinded by humanity's standards of what is an honest unique personality. By the standards that he knows he cannot help but reject the actual unique person because he has no hope. The girl knows she is completely substance and goes to show him despite the artist's expectations. To his surprise, he finds what he is looking for. Theme of the video: to not neglect the people who are not considered acceptable or right because they are not like you, you might be surprised. Instead give them a chance to prove that they are what they claim. Basically. Do not shun anyone because they're different, accept each other for who we are.
Campbell Louden
I worship Jon Mess.
diamondlightningg
Tillian's smooth dance moves though....
Chris Doucet
Why is no one talking about the music video? Personally, I think the music video is about an artist who is looking for a pure soul, and is trying to use it through his art. Most of everyone comes out an all black splotch because they aren't 'pure' so nothing is preserved and everything comes out black. But there's one girl who is pure enough to have her purity remain on the painting. Idk, just what I think.
Cassie White
Mingus is such a great drummer
Roivas Castaway
Got a box of lies Gonna get you high With the words of wisdom that you need to hear Got a big-ass book And I'm not a crook But I'll take your guilt in the form of dollars Bold lyrics, Jon Mess.
Devon Goping
While the 1 percent argue over how amazing Jonny/Kurt/Tilian is and how terrible Jonny/Kurt/Tilian is, can I just say that OH MY GOD, WHAT HAPPENED TO JON MESS AND WHEN DID HE BECOME SO GOOD AT SCREAMING?!
Chris Marroquin
Johnny Craig, Kurt Travis, TIllian Pearson, Dance Gavin Dance has been blessed with 3 amazing vocalist, the sounds is different by all three yet it still is perfect Dance Gavin Dance from Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean to Acceptance Speech....
Sergio Martinez
Dance Gavin Dance turns me on tbh.
Edson
It's almost been a year since they released Acceptance Speech and this album still sounds as good and even better than I remember. Tillian fits this album so fucking well, like Its really hard to imagine Jonny or kurt singing these songs. Maybe kurt but Jonny definitely would've not fit the rhythm or the style
Hansel Franco
DGD they know how to pick singers. Jonny, Kurt and Tilian, they really knew how to make great music with this band. I think these guys are amazing also because they made an awesome job in the other bands they are and were. Even working alone they do a great job. Great singers, and great choice by DGD. This band never disappoints.
Bunku
this is the first dgd song I've ever listened to I only came because of tilians work in tides and material me at first I was like meh but now dgd is my favorate band that wasn't even a year ago...
rising samael
ahh this was a suggestion a dude in a bus gave to me and i love it :)
Ragtime Dandy
I think Happiness and this one are my favorite albums of them all. And I'll be honest, Jonny Craig is pretty overrated. I mean, he's alright but still
Andrew Oransky
Everyone is talking about the vocalists, but honesty I would be happy with them just being an instrumental band. The drums and guitar are so groovy and amazing!
Solaniin
At first I didn't like this new album. Probably because I was still use to Kurt and Johnny. Then, it definitely grew on me. Now, this has become one of my favorite albums along side Happiness. My only criticism...I wish they made more songs like Powder to the People. :P     
J theJust
I feel that Dance Gavin Dance is simply evolving the way their music is structured and I think its a good thing rather than a bad thing. Honestly, DGD has had three amazing singers so far, I envy the singing abilities of all three but I do agree that some are better than others, both skill and for the band.  I think Kurt Travis was best for what the band's soul and meaning was about. The album Happiness contained my best memories was an absolute immerse for me. Happiness, to me, embodied pure randomness and simply....even though maybe cliche, authentic happiness. When I listen to Happiness I feel a surging emotion of glee and upbeat vibrations that helped me stay smiling through chasing and being rejected by a girl. Kurt Travis' vocals alongside the band effectively changed the way they played as the band changes their style to conform to the singers voice to project it more strongly in my opinion. Jonny Craig is an AMAZING singer and although he was a very good singer for the band, he failed to represent what Dance Gavin Dance was truly about. I think the style of Jonny's singing sounded amazing when playing alongside the band but it sounded out of place at the same time.  Tillian's position as vocals for DGD is outstanding, it really is, but it seems that he makes the band closer to the "Post-hardcore stereotype" when it comes to singing; high pitched, wavering flavor. Tillian represents more of the band than Jonny as Jonny gave a more sensual vibe to the band but he isn't the best pick for the vocals as he comes between Jonny and Kurt is his place in the band.  But sadly bands move forward to appeal to new crowds and change their style of play to represent what they mean at different angles which may indeed be natural. I have to say that I like all of DGD's albums and hopefully will continue to like many more if they do not break up; please don't break up until I can attend a concert! That's just my lowly opinion on a band that I will admit, I am infatuated about. :) DGD FTW!
David Ferraro
Johnny was a douche but had the best vocals in my opinion, tillians good for the bands image but his voice can be a bit much sometimes, but Kurt was just the heart and soul of this band dude I miss him
D K
The high pitched vocalist sounds like claudio from coheed and cambria.
Angel Garcia
I've been a DGD fan for years and i love there tunes... They really should make a video for "Jesus H. Macy" I think it has the most heart in the album and there's so many ideas that can go with that song!
JTL971
Tbh I loved Johnny, but only the ep. I liked it a lot more when Kurt was in the band, happiness and their self titles were amazing. But Tillian is a great vocalist and he is a good a addition for DgD, plus he is amazing live and can sing their old stuff great. 
Brandon
Should be called Dance Tilian Dance, did you see those moves he was busting out?! 0:45
Shelby Lamp
this has been stuck in my head for three days now. it will /not/ go away, i mean, i woke up this morning and it was literally the first thing that came to mind. That's okay though, it's pretty amazing
Sonia Blade
even with out jonny this band is amazing!
Circa dude
I prefer tilian in tides of man dance Gavin Dance is a little too fast pace for his vocal Style. Jonny Craig was more suited for dance Gavin Dance both amazing singers though.
Paddie Corley
As a young Christian it really bums me out that a lot of people have such a shit view of the church, the majority of people focus on the negatives that normally come in the form of corrupt people and forget about the positive, loving message that a church should be spreading in a respectful and tolerant manor, if it's doing "church" right that is. Being a lad of faith also makes songs like this hard to listen to which sucks balls cause damn this shit is good
Allan Tober
Everything with the new stuff sounds good, but I can't get over the effect that's constantly on Tillian's voice. Why is that even necessary? I know I'm not the only one that can hear the "spaciness" of it.
Jong-Jong Slownely
I was typing a comment in facebook when this played, and when Tillian did the intro, my fingers lost power.
JeffSimion
To the person trying to say Sleeping with Sirens is better then DGD, you do know Jesse, the person who wrote all the SWS songs quit the band? Kellin can't write to save his life.
Ben Ling
consider this: the video is actually about a ~not like other boys~ softboi artist who thinks hes a genius for realizing society has imaginary constructs, and tries to encapsulate women into his image and preys on them as if they were objects, controlling them and envisioning them as his own person manic pixie dream girl. the reason they turn black on canvas is because his views are shallow, and the notion that hes somehow a "Deep Brooding Artist Genius" because of his own self-imposed conceptions of his difference and unique-ness are pathetic and serve as a narcissistic defense mechanism against his lack of a personality. the ending depicts the manipulation and exploitation of a vulnerable young woman, and ultimately tragically ends with her entombed in his perceptions of what makes an ideal woman (being different and substantive, as if all humans aren't). anyway point being: you're not hot shit for thinking society is dumb and you're unique, everyone is cool, and championing yourself for being ''''different'''' is usually code for lacking a personality. anyway the song is bopping, dgd is a jam.
Jonjey2112
Tilian Pearson is better than Jonny Craig. #fact  
Tom Martin
Really was expecting the vocalists to be the other way round !
Bilbo Tbaggins
Hipsters meet Post-hardcore.
Tyler Dunning
I'm sorry but this album and happiness are the best albums ever produced by this band. And I've been a fan from the start. Everyone only notices that Tilian voice is high, listen to How he sings. How his voice flowed with the instruments, it felt as if it was an exciting roller coaster ride in my mind, Not to mention the meaning in the lyrics and how the screams are placed in the song. It's all perfectly together, Every song is different, doesn't blend and has their own atmosphere. Instrumentally its a fucking piece of art. And the album is a masterpiece. They never disappoint. Six perfect albums (well one EP and then their was also the decent DBT2 albumm)
Drakkiore
I think this video is about how no matter what girl he finds, they'll always really be second to his "mistress" the envoy of the "black" that compels him to keep throwing them away again and again, turning them into the black stuff. ie addiction and using people and shit for money for drugs
Nizzi Woods
Forever in love with Jon Mess. No homo. Or maybe yes.
Margaretta Bucey
It's exactly the same without Jonny. How about you all just stop complaining and just enjoy the music. They're AMAZING with tilian. I love it. I loved all the vocalist because they were all kickass brilliant. Jonny, Kurt, and Tilian are really good singers. Stop complaining. If you don't like it anymore then your loss.
Max Stavro
There is a deep meaning behind this song. Just cant put my finger on it.
Cub
Stop fighting over who is better. Look at it like this; say all the vocalists have reached level 100 with the way of the voice, which means they all have an amazing talent. At that point what makes them better than one another? Nothing. It's all personal opinion from there on out.
Tim Mayer
this album reminds me of happiness
SaintsofLA
people hating tillian, we all did the same thing when kurt was in the band, then he left and we decided to divide into kurt vs johnny, now theyre both gone we just hate on tillian, he's a fantastic singer yeah his vocals sound processed, layered and effected to hell on the record, thats not his fault he doesnt mix the vocals, but go watch his acoustic videos, the man sings fantastically 
MoonReaper44
I love jonny forever he started the band with swan but tillians is wierd with them im starting to like it i hear this album all day
Karol Gacek
I'm crushing on those girls in the video <3 and I can't stop listening to the song, it's perfect.
idk
goddamn. that two guitar attack. great instrumental arrangement throughout.
higeki
I have loved DGD since Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean and my love has grown more and more for the band once each album was released. Their progression has been quite remarkable. Jonny, Kurt, and Tilian are all amazing but there's no need to differentiate and convey favoritism when they can all be your favorite and already be aware of their differences
maw2013
Am I the only person that likes this newest album the most?
Sean David
Jonny Kurt Tillan all are great
Marquise Long
It just doesn't feel right without Johnny
Warrior Tha Witt
Wow this sounds really unique
Elliott Rivera
Saw this guys two days ago and Tillian was great man, he's actually able to keep those high notes very well, also met him, not such a bad dude. I think they're doing just great.
ᙣdexidiaᙦ
oh god not another food video, after the one in the donut shop i think i'll pass
CptInstinctive
#stopbitching #enjoythemusic
Swansen03
you know, i loved Kurt, he was super dynamic just like a certain other someone. BUT, thats besides my point. i swear they made this song like in a year apart and actually in the same room :D (for real though, it seems like Tilian didn't hear any of the instrumentals prior to his vocal recordings, and then they just laid the tracks over each other. well, again, minus this song)
adrian sotelo
Wow I underestimated new DGD. They are growing on to me. 
Harv
I love when Jon at 00:53 Joins in singing Tillian's part an does a little dance haha.
ohshitgodie
I really liked Tides of Man when Tillian was there and it came to my surprise that he joined DGD and wow he didn't disappoint me!
B00M3R500N3R
I'm not a fan of lineup changes, especially with lead vocalists. When I heard that Jonny Craig left, my first thought was, "Dead Odin, AGAIN??" But Tilian sounds good, and Jon Mess is still there, so I really can't complain. 
NewWorld
That album was mixed poorly as hell. Song is great, but the mix has barely anything going for it.
JCKohl
This is just a great song.  It's in 4/4 but the drums would confuse a person who doesn't know different.  The guitar is all over the place: tons of tapping, a nice warm tone, melody all-around.  Vocals are a nice mix of screams and almost falsetto singing.  Just a nice arrangement.  Perfect, almost.
ssj3 pepe
kinda a let down compared to pt 1 and 2 lol
Alejandro Cisneros
one millions of views are mine :v i play the video once (or more) a day
Anthony Ortiz
Each album is unique. Each singer they've had has been amazing. Dgd is a band that does nothing but create awesome music.
OP Gaming
these guys where amazing in concert
agrail Ivanovna
im not crying, you re crying :c
Peter Perez
I love DGD, but any clean vocalist they have I pretty much consider to be a guest vocalist for an album or two.
Jimmy DeLaney
When it comes to diversity and originality Dance Gavin Dance > Every other band in the genre
Big Boi
Just putting down the idea before I forget it, I think it's about a guy who has really unrealistic expectations for relationships, and either ends up losing the people he cares about or taking a part of them away
Ruby dooby doo
So....are the paint people dead?
aj ver
Listening back to old albums, it's very hard to compare them. With the lineup changes and new styles, each album is unique and progressively became different. These guys work hard to put out music for their fans and I respect them for continuing to create music.
travis snipes
Tillian is the man!
snowisalliknow
John is what has kept this band alive.
Kaya Vialva
This song is really good, I have no idea what it is about it but it's hypnotizing.
Justin Ranous
Dance Tilian Dance
Arissa Butler
They just keep getting better and better.
Pidgey
Never liked DGD till Tilian joined. Their new and re-recorded stuff is awesome now. Going to see them in November
Jonathan Engelbart
I can't stop watching this video because of Jon Mess
Dante LAN-I-ER
This was almost three years ago. Damn....This song still brings me so much joy, though. I needed this when it first came out.
ixora adilia
0:19 Is my favorite part of the video (like look how cute Mess looks while awkwardly dancing)
andy arief
dude the guitar playing on this track is funky as hell tho
King HushHush
The band sounds way better with Tilion. The spirit of Gavin lives in there nostalgic sound. AMAZING VISUAL TOO, Director knows what he is doing
HendrixDispute
I honestly really like the new clean vocalist..
carmen gil
I had no idea that Kurt travis left DGD in my opinion he was better than Craig (and I really liked Craig!!) but there was something about Kurt that got me hooked up I am so sad he left :(
Angelo Miller
I really love this song. it has everything, great vocals, screams, food, art, and its such a great song. It gets a 10 out of 10 from me
capresse olijizz
ear orgasm....
Tyler Adelman
This song just gave me goosebumps.
AzCannibalChris
As much as I hate posthardcore, I still genuinely like this song. probably because there's no annoying, half-assed breakdowns lol.
dannyboy765ify
this guy sounds way better than Johnny
Mariela C. B.
Tilian has a nice voice but not special. His voice is like the lead singer of A Slylit Drive, Michael Jagmin . I feel he does not fit DGD, in short, each with their tastes . This is subjective :)
Legato
Two words.. Jon mess
Lindsey Bentley
This song, man.
SystemOfABraum
still s great vid overall but lacks the roughness of johnny's vocals like marquise says, and instead it seams like we get a candy-voiced-power-autotunned-by-5-audio filters-substitute... just doesnt sound natural :C... still <3 u guys in da most hetero way :*
Tom Guerrero
id love to know what that piano at the end is.
Hauntsy Wauntsy
Tillian Pearson was raised to believe all that he reads. Fall in line with him, it's all that he sees.
EpicGabby
i loved Kurt but Tilian is amazing!
drummersetsfire
no.. just.. no...the musicians, as always, are amazing; tight, great song structures - but the awkward combination of a singer who somehow sounds like a claudio+anthony green rip-off just doesn't mesh. and i know a lot of it has to do with the fact that i've heard downtown battle mountain and whatever i say is royal ocean..
Matt Wittlinger
What if polyphia had vocals? And that's how Dance Gavin Dance was born. Great musicians working with such a great vocalist like Tilian Pearson. (I know Polyphia came out after DGD so please exclude this haha)
